Prokaryotic vs Eukaryotic Cells – Similarities & Differences
Firstly, eukaryotes do have “true” nuclei containing the DNA. The prokaryotes, on the other hand, do not.
In Eukaryotes, the chloroplasts and mitochondria perform various metabolic processes. On the other hand, in Prokaryotes, similar processes occur across the cell membrane.
The formation of the cell walls of Prokaryotes is from a different molecule than Eukaryotes.
Prokaryotes have a higher metabolic rate.
Prokaryotes have a larger surface area.
