difference between archaebacteria and eubacteria?

1. Archaebacteria are single celled while Eubacteria are complex.

2. Archaebacteria lives in harsh conditions while Eubacteria lives everywhere.

3. Muramic acid is absent in cell wall of archaebacteria but present in Eubacteria.


Archaebacteria:These bacteria are special since they live in some of the most harsh habitats such as extreme salty areas (halophiles), hot springs (thermoacidophiles) and marshy areas (methanogens). Archaebacteria differ from other bacteria in having a different cell wall structure and this feature is responsible for their survival in extreme conditions. Methanogens are present in the guts of several ruminant animals such as cows and buffaloes and they are responsible for the production of methane (biogas) from the dung of these animals.

 

Eubacteria: All other bacteria apart from the archaebacteria are eubacteria and are also known as 'true bacteria'.

Archebacteria is found in thermal areas.  Has a simple once celled structure.  Th main difference is that these are lesser known and not common to most people. However, the main difference between the two is that Archaebacteria is usually found in extreme conditions.

Eubacteria is found in foods.  It is made of arrays of microtubules oftublin.  Eubacteria are more common than archaebacteria.  It is complex in structure.  They can also be found in the human body.  Eubacteria has four phyllgroups of phyla.


hope this helps u...:)

Eubacteria

Eubacteria are microscopic single-celled organisms. They are sometimes referred to as the “true bacteria,” differentiating them from Archaebacteria, similar organisms with some significant genetic and lifestyle differences. The vast majority of organisms we think of as “bacteria” are Eubacteria, with their Archean cousins preferring extreme living environments like nuclear power plants and hydrothermal vents.

The Eubacteria are at the heart of a serious debate in scientific classification which is reshaping the traditional hierarchy of “Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species.” Originally, Eubacteria were considered part of the Prokaryota kingdom, sometimes called “Monera,” along with their relatives the Archaebacteria.

 

Archaebacteria

Archaebacteria are a type of prokaryote, that is, a unicellular organism without a cell nucleus. They make up the kingdom Archae, one of the main kingdoms of life. Archaebacteria are difficult to classify because they have similarities to both normal bacteria and the largereukaryotes. In structure, they are like unicellular prokaryotes, but the genetic transcription and translation underlying their creation is similar to that of the more complex eukaryotes.

Archaebacteria are very similar to prokaryotes. But they differ from the cell wall and the cell membrane. In prokaryotic cell membrane a phospholipid bi layer is present. But in archaebacteria a single layer of phospholipid is available. That's a reason why they could live in very limited resource environments.

Hi!
