Shown in the prokaryotic cell diagram above, a prokaryote is a unicellular organism that lacks a membrane-bound nucleus, mitochondria, or any other membrane-bound organelle. Prokaryotic cells are much simpler than the more evolutionarily advanced eukaryotic cell. Unlike eukaryotic cells which have many different functional compartments, divided by membranes, prokaryotes only have one membrane (the plasma membrane) enclosing all of the cell’s internal contents.

There are four main structures shared by all prokaryotic cells, bacterial or archaean: the plasma membrane, cytoplasm, ribosomes, genetic material (DNA and RNA). The cytoplasm in prokaryotic cells is a gel-like, yet fluid, substance in which all of the other cellular components are suspended. Ribosomes are the smallest part of cell organelle. Ribosome plays a vital role in protein synthesis as they consist of protein and RNA. They are located freely in the cytoplasm of attached to the rough endoplasmic reticulum.
