Lecture #4 1.28.2015 Modern Cell Theory 1. All organisms are composed of cells 2. The cell is the structural and functional unit of all living things 3. All cells come from pre-existing cells by division Three domain classifications  Domain bacteria (eubacteria; prokaryotes) o Most known prokaryotes o Peptidoglycan cell wall  Domain archaea o methanogens (poisoned by O2) o extreme halophiles (high salt) o extreme thermophiles (high temperature)  Domain Eukarya o Protista o Fungi o Animals o Plants Cell surface area to volume- hold genetic material, but can’t be too large (UL) because can only let things in that it can handle efficiently; increasing number of cells not size of cells (in animals) Prokaryotic Cell  Various shapes  Genetic material is in a nucleoid; large circular piece of DNA  Plasmids are small pieces of DNA that have specific types of genes that are often antibiotic genes or help them survive in the environment that they are in ; have ribosomes and plasma membrane and cell wall that peptidoglycan and have a sticky capsule that allows them to connect in a colony  Cell wall: o Gram positive: take up purple color, thick cell wall outside of the plasma membrane o Gram negative: more pathogenic, take up pink/red, thin cell wall with plasma membrane and outer membrane- prevent drugs from getting in and immune system protection against the host  Reproduction: o Diversity due to rapid reproduction which lead to natural selection taking it course after mutations take place o Grow in a colony manner  Genetic recombination o Transduction: attach to cell, inject genetic material, then cuts up host, reforms, and goes to next host o Bacteria conjugation: sex pilus and one piece of DNA can be transferred between prokaryotes o Transformation: through plasmid that’s taken out by another bacteria o Specialized cells: heterocyte- fixation for N o Biofilm: living to bring nutrients in and excrete waste- special living arrangement o Endospores- replicate DNA, put in thick wall, then dries out and can be rehydration Carbon:  Autotroph- an organism that requires only carbon dioxide as a carbon source  Heterotroph- an organism that requires at least one organic nutrients Obligate aerobes- use oxygen for cellular respiration Facultative anaerobes- can live with or without oxygen Obligate anaerobes- poisoned by oxygen Impacts: 1. Symbiotic relationships 2. Disease 3. Recycles-degrade organic material 4. Bioremediation 5. Nitrogen fixation Characteristics 1. Cell wall 2. Plasma membrane 3. Ribosomes 4. Flagella –slightly different because use it to move 5. DNA (nucleoid) & RNA 6. Plasmids (extra chromosomal material)
