The prime graph (or Gruenberg-Kegel graph) of a finite group is a well-known graph. In this paper, first, we investigate the structure of the finite groups with a non-complete prime graph. Then as an application, we prove that every alternating group $A_{n}$, where $nleq31$ is determined by its order and its largest element order. Also, we show that $A_{32}$ is not characterizable by order and the largest element order.
