Prokaryotes have naked, circular DNA with no introns, whereas eukaryotes have protein-bound, linear DNA and has introns. Prokaryotes have no nucleus, no membrane-bound organelles, 70S ribosomes, whereas eukaryotes have a nucleus, membrane bound organelles and 80S ribosomes. Prokaryotes are also smaller cells.
