Proteins In Living Systems  ● The carbon atom is the central core of all organic molecules  ● Found in:  ○ muscle tissue  ○ membrane structure of cell  ● Enzymes(catalyze reactions in living systems):structure is important  Protein function  ● Relates directly to the 3­D shape of molecule  ● If you change the shape you will change the way it catalyzes  ● 3­D shape directly determined by the sequence of the amino acids in molecule  ● thus: primary structure really determines protein structure/function  ● 20 types of amino acids­­vary in complexity and form  ● Many proteins act as enzymes  ○ catalyze chemical reactions in biol systems  ○ enzymes lower the energy required for chemical reaction  ● enzymes are specific to a particular chemical reaction  ● thus: shape helps determine the specific reaction which catalyzes    2.13 Enzymes speed chemical reactions  ● the sum total of all the chemical reactions in an organism in called metabolism  ● an enzyme is a protein that speeds up the chemical reaction    Catalyst function  ● lowers energy of activation  ● energy required for a Rx to take place is lowered  ● Lock and key concept of substrate­enzyme interaction(Lock being the substrate and key  being the enzyme)  ○ unique shape of enzyme and substrate  ○ one specific enzyme for each substrate  ● Why don’t some enzymes work the way they are supposed to?  ○ because they have been modified during the process they are made  ● Where are proteins made?  ○ the endoplasmic reticulum  ■ a membrane structure where you find ribosomes which is where this  process takes place    Ch. 3 Cell membrane and organelles  ● Cell membrane structure  ○ membranes in biol systems are composed of a complex of protein and lipids in a  unique layer called unit membrane  ○ This cell structure is so unique that is is semi permeable.    3.4 membranes regulate what substances can enter and leave the cell  ● every membrane is selective  Membrane Function  ● serves as limiting barrier for cell  ● anything that goes in or out must go through the membrane    Movement across cell membranes  ● Passive Transport Mechanism  ○ diffusion/osmosis  ○ moves substance(water) along with concentration gradient  ○ what is the difference between diffusion and osmosis  ■ osmosis relates to the water moving across the membrane  ■ diffusion relates to any other substance­­ions or molecules  ○ from high to low concentration  ● Active Transport Mechanism  ○ the substances are moving against the concentration gradient  ○ moving from low concentration  to high concentration  ○ what is involved in the active transport process(universal form of stored energy in  every living systems)?   ■ ATP­­the form of stored chemical energy which lets your body's cells,  organs, and tissues do work.  ■ moves something across the barrier    3.1 Cells can be grouped into two categories  ● All cells on earth can be classified into two general kinds  ○ prokaryotic cells  ■ bacteria  ■ small, simple  ■ single celled  ■ fossils date back to 3.5 billion years  ■ reproduce by binary fission­­a sexual process  ■ rapid extinction  ■ genetics are all the same  ○ Eukaryotic cells  ■ unicellular or multicellular  ■ well defined membrane bound organelle structure  ■ may reproduce asexually(usually unicellular) or sexually
