Prokaryotes. There are two basic types of organisms based on cell type: Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic. Prokaryotic cells are divided into the domains Bacteria and Archaea. Eukaryotic cells make up the more familiar Domain Eukarya.
In this manner, are bacteria a prokaryotic or eukaryotic cell?
Eukaryotic cells contain membrane-bound organelles, including a nucleus. Eukaryotes can be single-celled or multi-celled, such as you, me, plants, fungi, and insects. Bacteria are an example of prokaryotes. Prokaryotic cells do not contain a nucleus or any other membrane-bound organelle.
Are all prokaryotes bacteria?
A prokaryote is a unicellular organism that lacks a membrane-bound nucleus, mitochondria, or any other membrane-bound organelle. The word prokaryote comes from the Greek πρό (pro) "before" and κάρυον (karyon) "nut or kernel". Prokaryotes are divided into two domains, Archaea and Bacteria.
Which organ do prokaryotes use for conjugation?
Longer appendages, called pili (singular: pilus), come in several types that have different roles. For instance, a sex pilus holds two bacterial cells together and allows DNA to be transferred between them in a process called conjugation.
