10 Difference between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Replication

Prokaryotic DNA ReplicationEukaryotic DNA Replication
Prokaryotic DNA replication happens in the cytoplasm of the cell.The eukaryotic replication takes place in the nucleus of the cell.
Per DNA molecule, there exists only a single point of origin.This DNA molecule consists of multiple points of origin on a single.
The origin is composed of about 100-200 or more nucleotides.The origin of replication is constructed of roughly 150 nucleotides.
The replication process is bi-directional and only two replication forks are formed.Several replication forks are formed in multiple replication beads.
The prokaryotic chromosome contains only one replicon.The eukaryotic chromosome contains around 50,000 replicons.
The procedure is carried out by DNA Polymerase I and III.The procedure is carried out by the DNA Polymerase α, δ, and ε
It requires DNA gyraseIt doesn’t require DNA gyrase.
The Okazaki fragments are large. They are approximately 1000-2000 nucleotides in length.The Okazaki fragments are small and are roughly 100-200 nucleotides in length.
It is a quick approach with nearly 2000 nucleotides added per second.It is a slow approach having around 100 nucleotides added per second.
It includes circular and double-stranded DNA.It includes linear and double-stranded DNA.
