Exam 2 Study Guide (Ch. 5-7) Don’t forget to study chapters 1-4! Chapter 5: Cells  What Features Make Cells the Fundamental Units of Life? o Cell Theory: (Schleiden and Schwann 1838) all living things composed of cells and cells come from preexisting cells o Cell maintains surface area to volume ratio by limiting amount of materials that enter and exit  Prokaryotic Cell Features (Bacteria & Archaea) o NO NUCLEUS or ORGANELLES o Nucleoid –contains the DNA o Cytoplasm –contains free floating ribosomes o Divided by binary fission o 3 Common shapes: cocci (sphere), bacilli (rod-like) spirilla (spiral) o Cytoskeleton –assists in cell division and maintenance of cell shape o Specialized features:  Cell walls  Bacterial cell walls contain peptidoglycan o Gram POSITIVE: thick peptidoglycan layer; stains PURPLE o Gram NEGATIVE: thin peptidoglycan layer & additional outer membrane; stains RED  Capsule  Invaginations of plasma membrane  Flagella  Pili  Eukaryotic Cell Features (protists, plants, animals, fungi) o Ribosomes (inside mitochondria and chloroplast) o Organelles  Nucleus  Contains nucleolus  Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER)  Rough ER (RER)  Smooth ER (SER)  Golgi Apparatus  Mitochondria  Plastids –ONLY in plant and algal cells  Chloroplasts  Chromoplasts  Leucoplasts  Peroxisomes  Glyoxysomes –ONLY in plant cells  Vacuoles –ONLY in plant, fungal and Protist cells  In plant cells –support via turgor pressure, plant defense and attract pollinators o Endomembrane system –includes plasma membrane, nuclear envelope, ER, Golgi apparatus, and lysosomes o Cytoskeleton –provide cell with shape, strength, and movement  Microfilaments –thin filaments composed of ACTIN  Intermediate filaments –ONLY in multicellular organisms; composed of KERATIN  Microtubules –thick, hollow composed of TUBULIN  ALL cells essentials: o Plasma membrane, cytoplasm, DNA, ribosomes, use of same genetic code to produce protein, carryout glycolysis  What do animal cells have that plant cells don’t?  What’s common to all cells? (Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes)  Extracellular Structures o Plant Cell Walls –primarily cellulose  Plasmodesmata (membrane-lined channels) o Extracellular Matrix of Animal Cells –consists of collagen & proteoglycans  How did Eukaryotic Cells Originate? o Origin of Endomembrane System –enfolding and fusion of plasma membrane o Endosymbiosis Theory –  Mitochondria acquired by engulfing PROTEOBACTERIA  Chloroplast acquired by engulfing CYANOBACTERIA Chapter 6: Cell Membranes  Plasma membrane structure o Fluid Mosaic Model –phospholipid bilayer with mobile proteins o Membrane Lipids  Phospholipids  Cholesterol o Membrane Proteins  Integral proteins –AMPHIPATHIC; embedded in phospholipid bilayer  Peripheral proteins –HYDROPHILIC; do NOT penetrate bilayer o Membrane Carbohydrates o Factors affecting membrane fluidity:  Temperature  Cholesterol  Fatty acid saturation  Cell recognition and adhesion o Recognition –mediated by glycoprotein and glycolipid o Adhesion –mediated by integral membrane proteins o Cell junction –connect adjacent cells  3 Types: Tight Junction, Desmosomes, Gap Junction  Passive Membrane Transport o NO CHEMICAL ENERGY NEEDED o Substance moves from HIGHEST to LOWEST o Affected by –solute diameter, temperature, concentration gradient, and membrane permeable o Types of diffusion  Simple Diffusion –move THROUGH phospholipid bilayer  Facilitated diffusion -move through CHANNEL/CARRIER proteins  Gated channels  Ion channels  Aquaporins o Osmosis –movement of water across a selectively permeable membrane  Water ALWAYS moves from higher to lower potential (Less negative  More negative)  Addition of solute DECREASES potential  Pressure  Positive pressure INCREASES potential (ex: Blowing into straw)  Negative pressure DECREASES potential (ex: Sucking through straw)  Comparing solute concentrations  Hypotonic –LOW solute concentration  Hypertonic –HIGH solute concentration  Isotonic –EQUAL solute concentration  Active Membrane Transport o REQUIRES CHEMICAL ENERGY o Active transport proteins  Uniporters  Symporters  Antiporters o Primary active transport o Secondary active transport  Large Cells Enter and Leave a Cell o Endocytosis  Phagocytosis –“EATING”  Pinocytosis –“DRINKING”  Receptor-mediated endocytosis o Exocytosis Chapter 7: Cell Communication and Multicellularity  (I will complete once we have class)
