Chapter 3 Reading Notes: The cell membrane:  Cell membrane is a pliable structure surrounding the cell that is made of a phospholipid bilayer. o Phospholipid: polar (hydrophilic) head, non polar (hydrophobic) tail o Bilayer: composed of 2 phospholipids. Tails of each phospholipid are pointing inward. o Amphipathic: molecule composed of hydrophobic and hydrophilic regions  The presents of cholesterol in the cell membrane contributes to its fluidity. o Fluidity is an important feature of the cell membrane. o Fluidity means that the phospholipids and proteins are not locked in place.  Various proteins with different functions are also found in the membrane.  Intracellular fluid: fluid inside of the cell  Extracellular fluid: fluid outside of the cell membrane  Interstitial fluid: fluid not inside of blood vessels Membrane Proteins:  Integral Proteins: proteins embedded in the membrane. o Channel proteins: transports particular molecules in and out of the cell. o Cell recognition proteins: identification for the cell so it can be recognized by other cells  Receptors: type of recognition protein that binds with a specific molecule outside of the cell to induce chemical reaction within the cell.  Ligand: molecule that binds to receptor. o Glycoprotein: protein with carbohydrate attached.  Aid in cell recognition.  Aid in cells binding together.  Peripheral protein: o Have specific function based on the cell. Transport across cell membrane:  Membrane is selectively permeable: only allows certain materials to pass through.  Only very small, nonpolar molecules can move through cell membrane. *Water can diffuse through membrane because of its size  Passive Transport: molecule movement across the membrane without uses of energy o Molecules move down the concentration gradient from high concentration to low concentration. o Diffusion: movement of particles from an area of high concentration to low concentration  CO2, H2O, O2 can diffuse through membrane  Charged particles CAN NOT diffuse through membrane o Facilitated diffuse: passive transport for particles that can diffuse through membrane because of size, charge, or polarity.  Particles are transported using channel proteins and carrier proteins. o Osmosis: diffusion of water through semipermeable membrane  Water moves in or out of the cell based on the concentration of solute.  Water moves from low solute concentration to high solute concentration.  Hypertonic: solution that has high solute concentration relative to cell’s solute concentration. Water will leave the cell.  Hypotonic: solution that has low solute concentration relative to cell’s solute concentration. Water will enter the cell.  Isotonic: solution that has the same solute concentration as the cell. No net movement of water. o Filtration: passive transport of solution based on hydrostatic pressure. Solution is pushed from area of high pressure to area of low pressure.  i.e. kidneys removal of waste from bloodstream  Active Transport: molecule movement across the membrane using energy (ATP) With carrier o Moving particles against concentration gradient (from low to high concentration) o Sodium-potassium pump: moves Na+ out of the cell, moves K+ into the cell  Maintain electrical gradient: difference in electrical charge on either side of cell membrane.  Active transport done by the pump creates a concentration gradient. When cell need Na+ it opens passive transport channel and Na+ will diffuse into cell.  Secondary active transport: Active transport “powers” passive transport. o Symporters: secondary active transporters that move two substances in the same direction. o Antiporters: secondary transporters that move substances in opposite directions. Without carrier o Endocytosis: cell ingests substance by enveloping it in cell membrane o Phagocytosis: endocytosis of large particles o Pinocytosis: cell ingests fluid containing substance o Receptor-mediated endocytosis: endocytosis by part of cell membrane with many receptors for a specific substance. o Exocytosis: removing substances from the cell through use of vesicular transport. (Reverse of endocytosis) *Phagocytosis and pinocytosis take in large portions of extracellular material. Not very selective. The cytoplasm and cellular organelles:  Cytosol: jelly-like substance within cell. Creates fluidity with in cell  Organelle: Membrane-enclosed bodies within the cell that each have a unique functions.  Cytoplasm: organelles and cytosol  Nucleus: o Houses DNA of the cell. o Control center of cell. o Largest organelle  Endomembrane system: system that produces, packages, and exports certain cellular products o Endoplasmic reticulum + Golgi apparatus + vesicles  ER- organelle made of channels surrounding the nucleus that function in transporting, synthesizing, and storing materials. Exists in two forms: smooth ER (synthesize lipids) and rough ER (synthesis proteins)  Golgi apparatus-organelle responsible for modifying, sorting, and shipping off products that come from the ER. Have two sides: one side for receiving products the other for releasing packages.  Vesicles- spherical, hollow, membranous sacs that transport materials  Lysosome: organelle that contains enzymes to break down unneeded cell material (i.e. damaged organelles) o Autophagy- cell digesting its own structures o Autolysis: If cell becomes damage or unhealthy, then lysosomes can open up and release digestive enzymes, killing the cell  Mitochondria: energy transformer of the cell o Has inner, highly folded membrane known as cristae o Site of cellular respiration (glucose to ATP)  Peroxisomes: organelle containing enzymes for lipid metabolism and chemical detoxification. o Neutralizes poisons such as alcohol *Reactive oxygen species (ROS)- highly reactive products of normal cellular processes. Molecules are reactive because they contain unpaired electrons **Oxidative stress- damage caused by ROS  Cytoskeleton: helps cell maintain structure o Group of fibrous proteins o Important for cell motility, cell reproduction, and transportation of substances within the cell. o Microtubule (thick)- maintain cell shape and structure, resist cell compression, positions organelles within the cell  Cilia: move rhythmically moving waste away from cells  Flagellum: causes cell movement. (Seen on sperm cells in humans) o Microfilament (thin)-  Make up most of muscle tissue.  Cause muscle contractions  Create cleavage furrow for cell division o Intermediate filament (medium)-  Resist tension  Anchor organelles together within cells  Link cells together by forming junctions The Nucleus and DNA replication  Nuclear envelope: consists of two adjacent lipid bilayers  Nuclear pore: passage between nucleus and cytoplasm  Nucleolus- region that produces RNA  Chromosome: composed of DNA and protein  DNA structure: two complementary strands connected by nitrogenous bases twisted into a double helix shape. Looks like a twisted ladder.  DNA replication: copying of DNA before cell division o Stage 1: Initiation- complementary strands are separates o Stage 2: Elongation- each strand becomes template on which new complementary strand is built o Stage 3: Termination- once two identical DNA molecules are formed replication stops  Each DNA molecule contains one old strand and one new strand Protein synthesis:  Proteome: full set of proteins in cell  Gene expression: transformation from gene code to protein  Triplet: sequence of 3 DNA bases that code for a specific amino acid  Transcription: o DNA to RNA o Stage 1-initiation: promoter (sequence of nucleotides that tell RNA polymerase to start) triggers start of transcription  RNA polymerase: protein that adds nucleotides to RNA strand o Stage 2-elongation: RNA polymerase adds nucleotides to RNA strand o Stage 3-termination: RNA polymerase reaches “stop” codon and stops elongating the RNA strand. o Spiceosome: protein that cuts out noncoding regions of RNA  Slicing: process of cutting out non coded RNA  Introns: name for the segment of noncoded RNA  Translation: o RNA to Proteins o rRNA: RNA that combines with protein to make ribosomes that facilitate the translation of RNA to protein o mRNA: strand of RNA that will be translated into protein o tRNA: RNA that has the appropriate corresponding amino acid to the ribosome.  Anticodon: 3 base sequence on tRNA o Stage1-intiation: binding of ribosomes to mRNA o Stage 2-elongation: anticodons of tRNA and codons of mRNA combine o Stage 3-termination: ribosome reaches the “stop” codon on mRNA o Polyribosome: string of ribosomes translating a single mRNA strand. (Makes the process of translation quicker) Cell growth and division:  Somatic cells: general body cells. Any non sex cell  Homologous chromosomes: two copies of a single chromosomes  Cell cycle: series of events from cell creation until cell division o Interphase- phase when cell is not dividing  G0- resting phase  G1- growth phase  S- cell replicates its DNA  G2- cell growth and preparations for cell division  Sister chromatid- each copy of a chromosome  Centromere: structure that connects sister chromatid together o Mitotic phase-cell division  Prophase-chromatin condenses into chromosomes. Nuclear envelope disintegrates  Metaphase-microtubules attach to sister chromatid along linear plane in middle of cell.  Anaphase- sister chromatid are separated  Telophase- cells divide into two new identical daughter cells o Cell cycle control:  Checkpoint: point in cell cycle at which the cycle can be signaled to move forward or be stopped  Controls are important for making sure cells divided properly and in good condition
