Cell membrane and membrane-bound organelles Subcellular components All cells, whether prokaryotic or eukaryotichave a membrane that envelops the cell, regulates what moves in and out selectively permeableand maintains the electric potential of the cell. Inside the membrane, the cytoplasm takes up most of the cell's volume.
A study of biology includes the study of the chemical basis of living organisms, DNA.
Other related sciences include microbiology and organic chemistry. The word science comes from a Latin word scientica, which means knowledge, or information. Science is a process of systematically gathering detailed information and gaining exact knowledge. We do not know all the "life" information secrets but we are learning more every day.
The three biological life cycle s, are; Zygotic meiosis, Sporic meiosis, and Gametic meiosis, Amoeba - one basic life form. Amoebas and there are many different kinds feed by phagocytosis the engulfing and ingesting of foreign particles or waste matter by phagocytes --they flow around their prey usually a smaller cell and engulf it.
Organism that eat other organisms are usually called "consumers". The amoeba's cell membrane then fuses with itself, trapping the prey in a "food vacuole" where it will be digested. In the first place, no slight inconvenience results from too great separation beween branches of study which serve for the perfection of one art.The word bacteria is the plural of the New Latin bacterium, which is the latinisation of the Greek βακτήριον (bakterion), the diminutive of βακτηρία (bakteria), meaning "staff, cane", because the first ones to be discovered were rod-shaped..
Origin and early evolution.
A prokaryote is a unicellular organism that lacks a membrane-bound nucleus, Eukaryotes are organisms, including humans, whose cells have a well defined membrane-bound nucleus (containing chromosomal DNA) and organelles.
showing the origins of eukaryotes and prokaryotes. In We think clues to important questions in evolution biology, such as the transition from prokaryote to eukaryote, the origins of mitochondria and nuclei, and even the origins of centrioles, spindle pole bodies, flagella and other organelles, could be obtained from observing deep-sea microorganisms with electron microscopy.

Abstract: The bacterial flagellum is a complex molecular system with multiple components required for functional motility.
Such systems are sometimes proposed as puzzles for evolutionary theory on the assumption that selection would have no function to act on until all components are in place. Origin of Eukaryotes Time Period: Perhaps the most significant difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, if we want to understand the origin of the later, is that prokaryotes are inclosed in a rigid cell wall, whereas eukaryotes usually are not and can change their cell shape easily.
No prokaryote living today has ever been.
