All require explanations for coding and for catalytic activity, and all assign an important role to RNA. 4 The Biggest Biological Distinction— Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes All cells contain DNA. The total DNA of a cell is called the genome. Individual units of heredity, controlling individual traits by coding for a functional protein or RNA, are genes. The earliest cells that evolved must have been very simple, having the minimum apparatus necessary for life processes. The types of organisms living today that probably most resemble the earliest cells are the prokaryotes.

The cellulose that makes up plant cell walls is a major component of plant material; wood, cotton, linen, and most types of paper are mainly cellulose. Also present in plant cells are large central vacuoles, sacs in the cytoplasm surrounded by a single membrane. Although vacuoles sometimes appear in animal cells, those in plants are more prominent. They tend to increase in number and size as the plant cell ages. An important function of vacuoles is to isolate waste substances that are toxic to the plant and are produced in greater amounts than the plant can secrete to the environment.

3 Summary ■ ■ ■ Our solar system, including the Earth, is postulated to have been formed from chemical elements produced by first-generation stars. The early Earth had an atmosphere that consisted of simple chemical compounds. The atmospheric conditions of the early Earth allowed the formation of molecules, such as amino acids, that play a role in life processes. Several theories describe the origin of living cells from component molecules. All require explanations for coding and for catalytic activity, and all assign an important role to RNA.
