Friday September 9: MEMBRANES >Functions: Separate sales from environment. Control passage of molecules. Divide cells into compartments. Provide a reaction surface. >Components: Phospholipids G L Good to Y Nonpolar Tails = C Hydrophobic E Polar Heads = Hydrophilic R Phosphorylated O 2 Fatty L Acids alcohol *Proteins determines the functions *Micelle: a group of phospholipids *Lipid Bilayer: tails are packed tight together *Liposomes are lipid bilayers (can add water on the inside) *Fatty Acid tails may be saturated (together) unsaturated (bends) >Too much saturated fat may cause a cell to be stiff >Cholesterol may be found in membranes (may reduce softness or fluid) >Characteristics: Strong but flexible Self assembling Self healing >Important Functions: Transport Enzymes Receptors ID Markers Attachment & Cell adhesions What keeps the proteins embedded in the phospholipid Bilayer? By transmembrane proteins along with polar & nonpolar proteins *Proteins are amphipathic (different characteristics none uniformed) >Fluid Mosaic: describes the plasma membrane as a fluid combination of phospholipids, cholesterol, & proteins >Fiber in the extracellular matrix act as an anchor for the proteins Wednesday September 14: Cell Structure >All living organisms are composed of one or more cells >Smallest unit of life (Cells) >New cells come only from preexisting cells by cell division >Eukaryotic Cells: 10100x bigger Includes: ~True molecules ~plantae ~Animalia ~Complex interior ~fungi ~Protista >Prokaryotic Cells: smaller Includes: ~no nucleus ~bacteria ~simple interior ~archaea Microscopy & Cell Size >Light Microscope: magnification limit ≈ 1000x e ay seeeNucleus Most plant & animal cells Most bacteria Mitochondria >1931Electron Microscope: magnification more than 100,000x Range from 100μm to 0.1μm >Types of Electron Microscope: Transmission Electron Micrograph (TEM) Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) *TEM can see details *SEM can see texture >Cell Size: Surface to Volume *Total Surface area [sum of surface areas (height x width) of all box sizes x number of boxes] *Total Volume: [height x width x length x number of boxes] *Surfacetovolume: (StoV) ration [surface area / volume] Nucleus & Endoplasmic System >Endomembrane Systems include: Nucleus Reticulum Vesicles Endoplasmic Reticulum Golgi Apparatus *Nucleus: Nuclear Matrix Chromatin Nucleolus Double Membranes Nuclear Pores *Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) 2 Types Smooth ER Rough ER ~No Ribosomes ~Make Proteins ~Make Lipids ~Ribosomes Build Proteins ~Source of Membranes *Vesicle Formation: On ER surface; takes away proteins to Golgi *Golgi Apparatus: Vesicles emerge w/Golgi & empties proteins aka warehouse *Specialized Vesicles: Lysosome (contains digestive enzymes & strong acid) *Vacuoles: found in the central area of most plant cells (usually full of water) *Protists often have contractile vacuoles to pump out water to counteract osmosis Friday September 16: Semiautonomous Organelles >Mitochondria: location of cellular respiration ~found in all eukaryote cells ~single outer membrane ~folded inner membranes >Chloroplasts: photosynthesis happens here ~found in plant & algae ~double outer membrane ~complex of enteral membranes Evolution of Eukaryotes >Simple to complex cells >Endosymbiosis theory instead of slow gradual change *Symbiosis: 2 Organisms benefiting from each other *Endosymbiosis: one thing living inside another organism Ex: Algae & Coral *Mitochondria is an aerobic heterotrophic prokaryote *Chloroplasts is a photosynthetic prokaryote Evidence for Endosymbiosis? >Binary Fission: Divide like prokaryotic cells *Are sensitive to antibiotics like Streptomycin & Chloramphenicol >DNA: Mitochondria & chloroplasts have their own but not in the nucleus Cytosol & Cytoskeleton >Cytoskeleton: Fibers that attach to parts of a cell & act as an anchor come in various sizes *Actin Filament: Microfilaments ~Long thin ~Twisted together ~Help move things around ~Easy to disassemble (Reusable) *Microtubule: Long, hollow cylindrical (above 25nm thick) ~Can be assembled & disassembled (reusable) ~Has a + end & a end *Intermediate Filament : Intermediate in size ~Fibrous Protein ~Can be assembled & disassembled (NonReusable) >Microtubule “railroad tracks” helps transport vesicles Structure: ~Kinesis (protein (motor protein)) which helps “walks” the vesicle on the tracks by using energy ~Twisted ~ 2 “Duck Feet”
