Botany Lecture and Reading Notes week 2:  Introductory facts:  ­Bristlecone Pine oldest living tree is over 5,000 years old.  ­Bitterroot Flower is the Montana State flower (Latin Name: Lewisia Rediviva Pursh)  ­Living Organisms are made of cells.  ­Prokaryotes can tolerate very rough conditions.  ­Protista can form colonies. ­Roots absorb water and nutrients. Algae lack nutrients.  ­Photosynthesis makes carbohydrates  ­Tannins transport water ­ latex comes from tropical plants.  **FOR TEST  Know distinctive features of plant types. Major groups. (Non­Vascular, Vascular, etc.)  Know the 5 kingdoms classification scheme.  Reading and Powerpoint Notes:  Main Groups of Macromolecules in cells:  1.) Carbohydrates composed of sugars  2.) Lipids composed of fatty acid  3.) Nucleic acids composed of nucleotides  4.) Proteins composed of amino acids   Most carbon atoms in an organic compound carry a chemical group, known as a  functional group which give the group it’s particular properties.   Polymers are compounds made of monomers.   Simple sugars are the basic units of carbs. They are also called monosaccharides.  Monosaccharides are broken into 2 different compounds (polymers) disaccharides  and polysaccharides.   Amino Acids: Small Organic Molecules that are both an acid and a base.   Proteins can be added on to the end of the amino acids.   The Sequence of amino acids is said to be the primary structure of the protein.   Self Assembly is the automatic ability to organize a shape simply due to the character of the molecule.  CELLS POWERPOINT:   Prokaryote: (Bacteria) no nucleus.   Eukaryote: Nucleus (membrane)  All Eukoryote cells have:  ­Membrane  ­Cytoplasm  ­Nucleus  ­Ribosomes  ­Endoplasmic  ­Reticulum  ­Golgi Apparatus  ­Mitochondria  ­Microbodies  ­Cytoskeleton  Cell wall:  ­Membrane  ­Cytoplasm  ­Nucleus  Large Vacuole:  ­Ribosomes  ­Endoplasmic Reticulum  ­Golgi Apparatus  ­Mitochondria  Plastids:  ­Microbodies  ­Cytoskeleton   Semi Permeable: Membranes allow energy conservation higher concentration ­ more  energy.   Biological Membranes: Permeable to water but not to charged ions and large  molecules.   Larger or charged molecules are transported by proteins.  Primary Wall:  ­ All plant cells  ­ Made of cellulose  ­ Outside Secondary Wall:  ­ Only in certain cells  ­ Made of cellulose and lignin  ­ Inside  Cellulose + Lignin = stronger   Water conducting cells have secondary cell walls.  Cell walls:  ­ Gives you rigidity  ­ Allows for turgor Pressure  ­ Provides protection (Barrier to pathogens)  ­Binds Cells to; prevents sliding  ­ Communication   Vacuoles: essential for water relations, cell growth, and cell shape.   Amyloplast = Starch   Chromoplast = Pigments   Cytoskeleton­ directs cell traffic
