Gram-positives Methanococcus Thermoproteus Microsporidiae Flavobacteria function, that best characterizes eukaryotic cells (Fig. 1-5). In fact, eukaryotic structure and function are more complex than those of prokaryotes at all levels of organization, from the molecular level on up. Eukaryotes and prokaryotes have developed according to fundamentally different evolutionary strategies. Prokaryotes have exploited the advantages of simplicity and miniaturization: Their rapid growth rates permit them to occupy ecological niches in which there may be drastic fluctuations of the available nutrients.

Metabolic Processes There is a bewildering array of chemical reactions that simultaneously occur in any living cell. Yet these reactions follow a pattern that organizes them into the coherent process we refer to as life. For instance, most biological reactions are members of a metabolic pathway; that is, they function as one of a sequence of reactions that produce one or more specific products. Moreover, one of the hallmarks of life is that the rates of its reactions are so tightly regulated that there is rarely an unsatisfied need for a reactant in a metabolic pathway or an unnecessary buildup of some product.
