Dowsett/SPL/Photo Researchers, Inc. 10 Electron micrograph of a bacterium. A colored electron microscope image of a typical prokaryote: the bacterium Escherichia coli (magnified 16,500×). The pair in the center shows that division into two cells is nearly complete. ■ Prokaryotes have a nuclear region, which contains DNA, and ribosomes, the site of protein synthesis, as their main features. They have a cell membrane, but do not have an internal membrane system. 6 Eukaryotic Cells Multicellular plants and animals are eukaryotes, as are protista and fungi, but obvious differences exist among them.

Even later, DNA took over as the primary genetic material, relegating the more versatile RNA to an intermediary role in directing the synthesis of proteins under the direction of the genetic code residing in DNA. A certain amount of controversy surrounds this theory, but it has attracted considerable attention recently. Many unanswered questions remain about the role of RNA in the origin of life, but clearly that role must be important. Another key point in the development of living cells is the formation of membranes that separate cells from their environment.

16). The Golgi apparatus is involved in secretion of proteins from the cell, but it also appears in cells in which the primary function is not protein secretion. In particular, it is the site in the cell in which sugars are linked to other cellular components, such as proteins. The function of this organelle is still a subject of research. Other organelles in eukaryotes are similar to the Golgi apparatus in that they involve single, smooth membranes and have specialized functions. Lysosomes, for example, are membrane-enclosed sacs containing hydrolytic enzymes that could cause considerable damage to the cell if they were not physically separated from the lipids, proteins, or nucleic acids that they are able to attack.
