The function of Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic cell components by FATIMA MOHIDIN

Eukaryotic Cell
Eukaryotic cells are cells that contain a nucleus and have membrane bound organelles they are multicellular cells and undertake reproduction by the process cell division known as meiosis and mitosis. There are 2 types of eukaryotic cell: plant and animal cells. They contain organelles such ribosomes, smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, nucleolus, centrioles, cell membrane, flagella, cilia, microtubules, chloroplast and lysosomes.

Animal Cell: Plant Cell:

The nucleus controls and stores genetic material.

They move the cell around the body in one direction and transport substances along tissue surface and also assist in protecting the cell from harmful substances.
Flagella a thin rotating tail like fibre that helps move the cell in a wave like pattern. Found at the end of the cell and is only present in a spermatozoa cell (sperm cell) of eukaryotic cells.
Rough endoplasmic reticulum is a large network of tubes running from the nucleus to the cell membrane. The main function of the rough endoplasmic reticulum is to transport cell material. The rough endoplasmic reticulum is covered in ribosomes that help process and release the cell material through ought the entire cell
Smooth Endoplasmic reticulum is a large network of tubes running from the nucleus to the outer membrane of the cell. Its main function is to transport material to the cell and then make and breakdown lipids and
