 Plasma Membrane o Phosphorus head is charged or polar (hydrophilic) o Fatty acid tails are non-charged and are hydrophobic. o Find proteins and cholesterol through plasma membrane o Sugar groups are attached to the proteins  Plasma Membrane Proteins o Enzymes, receptors, carriers/channels o Integram = within (passing through o Peripheral = inner or outer side  Membrane carbohydrate o At the outside of the cell o Ring like structure, glycocalyx “sugarcoat” o Acts in cell signaling and in some immune responses o Also protects the cell from some microbes.  Cytoplasm o Cytosol  Fluid that suspends other elements (fluid mainly water)  Organelles are machinery that does work in cell  Inclusions are stored nutrients or cell products  Nucleus o Seperated by nuclear envelope that is a bilayer o Contains genetic materials in DNA that makes chromatin fibers (loose coul)  Housed in nucleus and doesn’t leave nucleus  Genetic code = chemical language of cell o DNA – all proteins o Gene- structure for 1 protein o Rough ER is attached to some of the nuclear pores o Can have more than one nucleolus  Nucleoli o Inside nucleus o Related to protein production o Synthesize ribosomes o Ribosomes – free attached  Where protein is synthesized  Membrane Bound Organells o Rough ER  studded ribosomes  synthesize proteins, modified and packaged  Transported to golgi apparatus  abundant in cell o Smooth ER  Synthesize lipids  Detoxification o Golgo apparatus  Series of flattened saccules adjoining the ER, modify and transport proteins for export  Found away from nucleus, unlike rough and smooth ER  Protein modified as it moves through layers of Golgi apparatus, then contents released out of Golgi apparatus where it’s exported out of the cell.  All proteins made inside of the cell, either stay in the cell for organs or are sent out of the cell  Membrane Bound Organelles o Mitochondria – “power house” of the cell, ATP  cells with high metabolism o Glucose goes in cell, once in cytoplasm it goes through glycolysis, end results is ATP.  ATP has 3 phosphorus attached to it, when that phosphorus breaks off there’s a high energy release sued to drive reactions (where cells get their energy) o Can create ATP without oxygen but not so much, need oxygen for creating a lot of ATP  Lysosome – “suicide bombers” contain enzymes that digest old organelles or microbes  Peroxisome – oxidase enzymes metabolize H202, alcohol, formaldehyde  Cytoskeleton o Shape, strength, movement either within cell or surface of the cell o Microfilament – smallest (used to anchor things in cell, made of actin protein, we see a lot of this in muscle to cause muscle contractions, we also see in microvilli which is an extension of plasma membrane in cell)  Helps increase surface area o Intermediate – tough  Guy wires o Microtubules – large hollow tube, hollow center down through it  Used for moving proteins through cell, centriole is made of microtubules  Cilia can be confused for microvilli, cilia is longer and looks like hair structures  Cilia actually moves, microvilli is usually stationary  Tubulin proteins  Centrioles, cilia, flagella  Protein Synthesis o The nucleus contains chromosomes, DNA which directs protein synthesis o Code to make protein is in DNA, protein is made in cytoplasm  Make copy of code in nucleus, and move it out to cytoplasm o DNA- genetic instructions for proteins  1 codon/3 bases codes for 1 amino acid o DNA can’t leave nucleus o Copy involves RNA, which is an intermediate in protein synthesis  mRNA – messenger  rRNA- ribosomal  tRNA – transfer o Transcription – getting copy for instructions for DNA to RNA 9mRNA), in nucleus o Translation – mRNA moves through nuclear pore to a ribosome in cytoplasm, rRNA surrounds strand of mRNA. tRNA that has amino acid will be associated with ribosomal rRNA. Reminder: Proteins are amino acids linked through peptide bonds  Membrane Transport o Permeability determines what moves in/out o Selective permeability (doesn’t let things through that has charge, because interior is hydrophobic and hates charges) o Products and waste moved in and out o Signals in/out o Transport can be  Passive – no energy  Diffusion- moving from area of high concentration to area of low concentration o Difference of concentration is called concentration gradient o Net movement until equal on both sides o Simple diffusion – water, small molecules and hydrophobic  Facilitated diffusion is down gradient but uses a carrier protein (still passive transport)  Osmosis – diffusion of water, water moves through membrane o Higher concentrations of solutes = lower concentration of water o Isotonic solution = no flow o Hypotonic = solution has less solute and water moves into the cell  Hypotonic – causes cell to burst  Isotonic – cell remains unchanged  Hypertonic – cell shrivels up  Active – needs energy (needs ATP)  Against a gradient, requires energy (low to high concentration)  Carrier proteins (against gradient)  Ex: Sodium-Potassium pump  Vesicular transport o Exocytosis (moving out of cell, opposite is endocytosis) o Endocytosis transport into cell phagocytosis (foreign material)  Eating cell to destroy it  Tissues o molecule-cell-tissue-organ-system-organism o Tissues are similar cells and the substances around them (extracellular matrix) o Cells and matrix = tissue o 4 types:  Epithelial – protection and absorption, coverings and linings  Connective tissue – compartmentalize, link, support  Muscle- contraction  Neural – electrical signaling for communication o Surface  Linings and coverings  Covering – epithelium  Lining – endothelium  Mesothelium  Glandular  All glands in body came from epithelium  Epithelium function  Protection – skin, mucous membranes (some line respiratory and genital tract)  Absorption – digestive, excretory, CO2/O2  Secretion – sweat, mucus and other glands  Sensation  Barrier – water loss  Closely packed- cells bound by tight junctions and desmosomes  Polar- apical (free) surface exposed to surface or organ interior. o Basal surface attached to basement membrane  Attachment- basal lamina/basement membrane  Avascular – no blood supply  Regeneration – “hard life”, see mitosis occur on regular bases o stem cells at basement membrane  Intercellular Connections o Almost entirely cells, little matrix o 3 main types of intercellular connections  Tight or occluding junctions- do not allow passage of material b/n cells,  apical   basal, stops passing material from apical to basal side  Desmosomes- secure flexible connections, resist twist and stretch  Hemidesmosome – anchor cell to basement membrane  Gap junctions – specialized channels formed by proteins allow communication  Classification of epithelium o Layers o Simple – 1 cell layer (passage) o Stratified – multiple cell layers  Connective Tissue o Structural support, joins components together o Found everywhere o Cells scattered in extra cellular matrix, this determines tissue type o All connective tissue have cells, ground substance, and protein fibers (protein fibers made in cell and sent outside cell into extra cellular matrix) o Ground substance + protein fibers = matrix  CT Fibers o Collagen – strongest o Elastic – stretchy, recoil o Reticular – thin and supportive o Ground substance is either sugars with proteins attached or proteins with sugars (proteoglycans)  Huge molecules from gel like substance  CT cell types o Blast cells (beginner)  Secrete matrix  Mature to –cytes  Osteoblast- make matrix  Osteocyte- maintain matrix o Cyte cells  Maintain matrix in cartilage and bone live in lacuna o Clast cells – break down  Chondroblast – makes matrix  Chondrocyte – maintains matrix and lives in lacuna o Macrophages – large, eat debris and pathogens o Mast cells – release chemicals, release chemicals that start inflammation  Most to least rigid o Bone > Cartilage > Dense connective > Loose connective > Blood (no fibers in blood, has precursor for fiber) o Bone – solid matrix, osseous, cement like  Calcium salts make it hard o Cartilage – rubbery avascular issue (no blood supply)  locations: tip of nose, ear  Gelatinous matrix with many supportive fibers  Mature cells are chondrocytes  Sit in spaces – lacunae, in extensive matrix.  If you see lacunae, it’s either bone or cartilage  3 types  hyaline (most common) – joints like the knee  elastic - ears  fibrocartilage – in vertebral disk  Dense connective tissue o Regular – collagen densely packed parallel bands, strong o Irregular – collagen usually founds in sheets, not as strong but can withstand pull in all directions  Loose connective tissue- multiple cell types, syrupy matric o Areolar (most widely spread), acts as packaging/filler in bodies o Adipose (specialized, stores triglyceride) o Reticular (specialized, supportive framework)  Blood o Most atypical connective tissue o No fibers o Transport materials around body  Body membranes o Body membranes – physical barriers  Repair o Replace destroyed tissue o Labile cells divide through life o Stabile cells – can divide after injury o Permanent cells – no ability to divide, usually replaced by connective tissue (scar tissue) o Epithelium – excellent o Connective tissue – good o Muscle – fair/poor o Cardiac and nervous – generally none CH. 4  Integumentary system o The integument is the largest system in the body o Made of 2 parts  skin/cutaneous membrane  accessory structures (hair, nails, exocrine or sweat glands)  Skin o 2 parts  epedrmis – epithelium  stratified squamous  avascular (diffusion)  Dermis – Connective tissue  10x to 20x thicker  cells grow in dermis and move up to epidermis  Hypodermis o technically not part of the skin o Supplies nerves and blood to skin o loose connective tissue o beneath dermis, it’s subcutaneous o 50% of body fat stores subcutaneous o Injections  Intradermal  Hypodermal/subcutaneous  Intramuscular  Functions of integument o Protects o Maintain body temperature (blood flow, sweat gland) o Blood vessels in dermis/hypodermis constrict to get heat away from skin and put them more towards organs during cold weather and vice versa during hot weather o Excretes salts, water, and organic waste (glands) o synthesize vitamin D3 o Stores lipids o Detects pain, touch, vibration, pressure, and temperature. A lot of sensory nerves in skin. o Produces melanin and keratin o Dermis – 2 layers  papillary extends to epidermis  reticular is deeper  dermis receives blood supply from underlying subcutaneous layer arteries “cutaneous plexus”  Cells of epidermis o keratinocytes – most abundant, keratin protein fills cells, resist abrasion, water loss o Melanocytes – produce melanin packaged in melanosomes  Layers of epidermis o Epidermis has 4-5 layers of cells o 1. stratum basale – deepest layer, high rate of mitoses o 2. stratum spinosum o 3. stratum granulosum o 4. Stratum lucidum (lucid, clear layer, thick skin)  Thick skin o 5 layers in epidermis o found in soles of feet, palms, and fingertips o papilla are In parallel and produce curving ridges unique to individual which improve grip  Skin color o blood circulating through skin (cyanosis-blue, erythema-red) o Thickness of skin o Melanin – pigments produced by melanocytes that effect skin, hair, and eye color o Melanocyte number same, production of melanin is what is different o Melanin production based on genetics and exposure to sunlight o Aid to diagnosing  erythema – infection, sunburn, inflammation  Cyanosis – decreased oxygen, heart, lungs  Jaundice – bile, yellowish hue, liver disease  Carotene – orange pigment, carrots  Lipid soluble so deposits in adipose  Vitiligo – melanocytes lost, ? immune  Albino – have melanocyte, don’t make melanin  Vitamin D production o Skin – 7dehydrocholesterol o Ultraviolet B light converts it to cholecalciferol/D3 o Liver to kidney to active form calcitriol o Calcitriol stimulates calcium ad phosphate uptake at intestines o Impaired bone maintenance and growth o Chronic pain  Skin cancer o Most common form of cancer o Direct correlation to amount of melanin, sunburn, and uv accumulation o 3 main types –  basal cell –most common, least worrisome  Squamous  Melanoma- least common but most dangerous  Accessory structure of skin – hair o Covered except  Palms  Soles  Lips  Portions of genitalia o Functions  Protects from bacteria and insulate  Guards openings  sensitive to very light touch  Arrector pili muscle – involuntary smooth muscle (goose bumps)  Accessory – sweat glands o 2 types o Merocrine – almost everywhere, secret sweat, water and salts, response to heat or emotion o Apocrine – open into hair follicles in axilla and genitalia  Secrete thicker sweat (body odor) o Sebaceous gland- secrete oil
