What is the difference between archaea and eubacteria?

Eubacteria are members of the Family Eubacteriaceae, which are part of the Class Clostridia within the Domain "Bacteria". Eubacteria have a rigid cell wall. However, they can be both gram positive and gram-negative. I suspect that you intended to ask the difference between the domains Archaea and Bacteria.
A.

What are the main characteristics of Archaea?

Various types of cell walls exist in the archaea. Therefore, the absence or presence of peptidoglycan is a distinguishing feature between the archaea and bacteria. 2. Fatty acids: bacteria and eukaryotes produce membrane lipids consisting of fatty acids linked by ester bonds to a molecule of glycerol.
  • Can archaebacteria move?

    Archaea may have one or more flagella attached to them, or may lack flagella altogether. The flagella are hair-like appendages used for moving around, and are attached directly into the outer membrane of the cell. When multiple flagella are present, they are usually attached all on one side of the cell.
  • What characteristics distinguish fungi from other plants?

    While both are eukaryotic and don't move, plants are autotrophic - making their own energy - and have cell walls made of cellulose, but fungi are heterotrophic - taking in food for energy - and have cell walls made of chitin.
  • What features are unique to bacteria?

    Bacteria are like eukaryotic cells in that they have cytoplasm, ribosomes, and a plasma membrane. Features that distinguish a bacterial cell from a eukaryotic cell include the circular DNA of the nucleoid, the lack of membrane-bound organelles, the cell wall of peptidoglycan, and flagella.
B.

What makes archaea so unique?

These microbes (archaea; singular archaeon) are prokaryotes, meaning they have no cell nucleus. Archaeal cells have unique properties separating them from the other two domains of life, Bacteria and Eukarya.
  • Where do most archaea live?

    Archaea were initially viewed as extremophiles living in harsh environments, such as hot springs and salt lakes, but they have since been found in a broad range of habitats, including soils, oceans, and marshlands. They are also part of the human microbiota, found in the colon, mouth, and skin.
  • What are the characteristics of a bacteria?

    There are three notable common traits of bacteria, 1) lack of membrane-bound organelles, 2) unicellular and 3) small (usually microscopic) size. Not all prokaryotes are bacteria, some are archaea, which although they share common physicals features to bacteria, are ancestrally different from bacteria.
  • How do Archaea move?

    Archaea may have one or more flagella attached to them, or may lack flagella altogether. The flagella are hair-like appendages used for moving around, and are attached directly into the outer membrane of the cell. When multiple flagella are present, they are usually attached all on one side of the cell.
C.

What are three characteristics of bacteria?

There are three notable common traits of bacteria, 1) lack of membrane-bound organelles, 2) unicellular and 3) small (usually microscopic) size. Not all prokaryotes are bacteria, some are archaea, which although they share common physicals features to bacteria, are ancestrally different from bacteria.
  • What is the characteristics of the bacteria?

    Bacteria lack many of the structures that eukaryotic cells contain. For example, they don't have a nucleus. They also lack membrane-bound organelles, such as mitochondria or chloroplasts. The DNA of a bacterial cell is also different from a eukaryotic cell.
  • What are 4 types of bacteria?

    Studies have shown that of the bacteria found in indoor air, the most common four are: Micrococcus, Staphylococcus, Bacillus, and Pseudomonas. Micrococcus is a sphere-shaped (coccus/cocci generally means spherical), relatively harmless bacterium.
  • What are the characteristics of protists?

    Protists are eukaryotes, which means their cells have a nucleus and other membrane-bound organelles. Most, but not all, protists are single-celled. Other than these features, they have very little in common. You can think about protists as all eukaryotic organisms that are neither animals, nor plants, nor fungi.
