Like a prokaryotic cell, a eukaryotic cell has a plasma membrane, cytoplasm, and ribosomes.
However, unlike prokaryotic cells, eukaryotic cells have: a membrane-bound nucleus.
numerous membrane-bound organelles (including the endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, chloroplasts, and mitochondria)
What are the parts of a eukaryotic cell and their functions?
Organelles of Eukaryotic Cells
|Nucleus||The “brains” of the cell, the nucleus directs cell activities and contains genetic material called chromosomes made of DNA.|
|Mitochondria||Make energy out of food|
|Golgi Apparatus||Make, process and package proteins|
