Chapter 2 Definition Review Primary Structure – sequence of amino acids Hydrophilic – water loving Hydrophobic – Water hating Cell – basic structural unit of life pH – the concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution Buffer – weak acid or base Review There are 4 types of macromolecules make up living things Carbs Proteins Lipids Nucleic Acid Carbs are sugars and are used or structural support and to store and release energy There are 20 amino acids Proteins are polypeptides Primary structure determines the folding of the protein Nucleotide can be used for energy and make up nucleic acid DNA = deoxyribose – AGCT = Double stranded helix RNA = ribose – AGUC = single strand Lipids are made out of monomers Lipids are hydrophobic (they don’t mix with water) Fats are bonded to glycerol with phosphate Phospholipids have a hydrophobic tails and hydrophilic heads Cells are waterfilled sacs bounded by a cell membrane All cells have the same basic architecture Viruses are not cells Hydrogen bonds for with both water and other molecules pH can range from 0 to 14 with 0 being the most acidic 7 being negative and 14 being the most basic Chapter 3 Definition Colony a reproducing bacteria Antibiotics – chemicals that kill bacteria Cell Theory – all living things are made of cells Prokaryotic cells lack internal membrane – bound organelles Eukaryotic cells – have membrane – bound organelles including a nucleus Membrane – a flexible yet sturdy structure the forms a boundary between the external environment and the cell’s watery cytoplasm Cytoplasm gelatinous aqueous interior Ribosome – a complex of RNA and proteins that carry out protein synthesis DNA – molecule of heredity Nucleus – an organelle that contains the DNA Peptidoglycan – a polymer made of sugar and amino acids Hypotonic – less solutes outside more solutes inside Hypertonic – more solutes outside less solutes inside Isotonic – same solutes inside and outside Osmosis – the diffusion of water across semipermeable membrane from an area of lower – solute Gram – positive cell wall with layer of peptidoglycan that retains the Gram stain Gram – negative – cell wall layer of peptidoglycan surrounded by lipid membrane that does not retain the Gram stain and prevents penicillin from reaching the peptidoglycan underneath Simple diffusion – the natural tendency to dissolved substance to move from an area of higher concentration to one of lower concentration Mitochondria – cells power plant Important Information Penicillium Notatum is capable of killing many kinds of bacteria You cannot become resistant to antibiotics but the bacteria can Antibiotics are often naturally produced by living organisms All new cells come from the division of preexisting cell Not all cells are alike. They came in all shapes and sizes and perform many different function depending on where they are found Both have DNA, ribosomes, cytoplasm, and cell membrane Prokaryotic cells have a cell wall Eukaryotic cells don’t have a cell wall unless they are a plant Both plant and animal cells are Eukaryotic Bacteria are prokaryotic Only eukaryotic cells have a nucleus Only prokaryotic cells have their DNA floating freely in cytoplasm, no organelles and have a cell wall Eukaryotic cells are much larger than prokaryotic cells Antibiotics target prokaryotic cells Bacterial cell walls are rigid due to peptidoglycan Peptidoglycan allows bacteria to survive in watery environment Gram – positive = purple color Gram – negative = no purple color Streptomycin interferes with prokaryotic ribosomes and leaves eukaryotic ribosomes unaffected Both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells have ribosomes, but their ribosomes are of different sizes and have different structures Ribosomes are the site of protein synthesis Transport proteins sit in the membrane bilayer and acts as a channel, carrier or pump and can move substances with or against concentration gradient Facilitated diffusion is when large solutes move across a membrane from higher concentration to lower concentration with eh help of transport proteins and requires no energy Active transport is when solutes are pumped from lower concentration to higher concentration with the help of transport proteins and requires energy
