Eucharion Cell: Complex Cell Organization and True Nucleus

What they are (definition)

Eukaryotic cells, also called eukaryotic cells, are those that have a defined nucleus (true nucleus) through a nuclear membrane.

Main Features:

- They have organelles inside with well defined functions.

- Have individualized nucleus, surrounded by a nuclear membrane (library).

- Presence of genetic material within the nucleus.

- Plasma membrane: lipoprotein double layer.

- The antibody is a glycoprotein.

Eukaryotic cells are present in:

- Animals (including humans)

- Vegetables

- Fungi

- Protozoa

Did you know?

The main difference between a eukaryote cell and a prokaryote cell is that the first type has a true and delimited nucleus with the presence of genetic material, while in the second type this genetic material is scattered throughout the cytoplasm.
