B) The mechanism of protein excretion in prokaryotes is probably the same as that in eukaryotes.
C) Proteins that are excreted by prokaryotes are synthesized on ribosomes that are bound to thecytoplasmic surface of the plasma membrane.
D) In prokaryotes, the ribosomes that are used for the synthesis of secreted proteins are locatedoutside of the cell.
E) Prokaryotes contain large pores in their plasma membrane that permit the movement ofproteins out of the cell.
