Answer to Question #71400 in Other Biology for Luke Alford
The cytoskeleton of eukaryotes serves many functions. One of these functions is served in prokaryotes by a different major structure. Which structural feature is it? How do these different structures serve the same function in the two cell types?
It is a cell wall in prokaryotes. It maintains the shape of the cell. Cytoskeleton of the eukaryotic cell creates the framework, at which cell membrane hangs upon. In prokaryotes, the rigid cell wall does not change its shape, and thus, the shape of the cell remains the same.
