BIO 120 Class Notes 2/8/162/15/16 Eukaryotes: plant, animal, fungi, protest Prokaryotes: small, simple, fewer cells, bacteria, been around longer than eukaryotes Plant Cell: cell wall & chloroplasts – animal cells do not have them Passive Transport: no ATP (cellular energy) is required because it moves with the concentration gradient > simple diffusion (osmosis), facilitated diffusion, dialysis Active Transport: ATP is required, the solvent moves against the concentration gradient – low concentration to high concentration > exocytosis, endocytosis Simple Diffusion: no ATP, high oxygen to low oxygen Osmosis: when water is equal on both sides of the membranes pH: strength/weakness of an acid or base Cell membrane/plasma membrane: protection, communication, all organisms have cell membrane, has phospholipid bilayer Cell Wall: outside of cell membrane, plants, fungi Bacteria has DNA even though it doesn’t have a nucleus Metabolism: o All physical and chemical processes in the body that convert or use energy Water Enzymes Calories Digestion: o Breakdown of food production into smaller and simpler compounds Macronutrients Micronutrients Enzymes Respiration o A metabolic reaction where glucose is broken down and energy is release for use by the cell and life processes Oxygen Glucose Enzymes Mitochondria Enzymes: o Work in specific temperatures and need vitamins in order to function – vitamins assist enzymes in whatever they are doing Photosynthesis: o Chloroplast o Gives out oxygen and glucose o Requires sunlight
