  • Which characteristic of prokaryotic organisms makes them different from eukaryotes?

  • Prokaryotic cells do not have membrane-bound organelles.

  • Prokaryotes do not have chromosomes.

  • Prokaryotes are made of cells.

  • Prokaryotes have DNA.

  • Enzymes only work with specific substrates because each substrate-

  • has a specific activation site for enzyme attachment

  • can only use a specific ionic bond with the enzyme

  • destroys its specific enzyme
