    1. Eukaryotic cells have a true nucleus, bound by a double membrane. Prokaryotic cells have no nucleus. 2. Eukaryotic DNA is linear; prokaryotic DNA is circular (it has no ends). 3. Eukaryotic DNA is complexed with proteins called "histones," and is organized into chromosomes; prokaryotic DNA is "naked," meaning that it has no histones associated with it. 4. Both cell types have many, many ribosomes, but the ribosomes of the eukaryotic cells are larger and more complex than those of the prokaryotic cell.
