Answer ( 1 )


    In Escherichia coli (E. coli), a common bacterium found in the gastrointestinal tract of humans and animals, there is a lack of organelles typically found in eukaryotic cells, such as mitochondria, chloroplasts, and a nucleus. Unlike eukaryotic cells, which have membrane-bound organelles, E. coli is a prokaryotic organism, meaning it lacks these membrane-bound structures. Instead, E. coli contains simpler structures like ribosomes for protein synthesis and a nucleoid region where its DNA is located.
