Research on Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes  

Posted by Aj

I have been looking through many different resources and learning the differences between these cells, to the extend were i feel like a science student. When you look into these matters at a molecular level its almost as if you were in another world. There are a lot of facts that we still don't know about the cells, but from what i can gather Prokaryotic cells take in other primitive organisms to get energy and in return they provide protection for these organisms. The process by which they gather the resources is called endocytosis, which is an amazing feat in itself. The cells plasma membrane starts to fold on itself and then the outside membrane closes in taking the objects inside the cell.

Then slowly endoplasmic reticulum and nuclear envelopes develop inside the cell, the main energy process starts when the cells starts to engulf aerobic heterotrophic prokaryotes, which then change to mitochondria. Its an amazing process by which the prokaryote cells evolve into a self sustaining eukaryote cell.

There is still a lot more for me to learn on these amazing cells and how they evolved from an ancestral prokaryote to the eukaryotes.
