Escherichia coli (E. coli)is an inhabitant of the human intestine and a model organism for gram-negative bacteria (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escherichia_coli). While it has been long assumed that prokaryotes lack the sophistical intracellular architecture of eukaryotic cells and are unorganized bags of cytoplasm surrounded by a membrane, more recent research has shown that prokaryotes do indeed have organized cytoplasms with the nucleoid and various proteins restricted to certain areas.
