Cell Hierarchy & Homeostasis Anatomy- Study of structures Physiology- study of function of structures Correlations between structure and function begin at the molecular level Similar relationship between structure and function at cellular level Cell Shape and function correlate Biological Hierarchy Tissues- Group of similar cells that function as a unit 4 major categories of human adult tissues 1. Connective 2. Nervous 3. Muscle 4. Epithelial 1. Connective Tissues- Consists of cells lossley arranged in liquid, jelly like or solid ECM 4 Types 1. Loose 2. Dense 3. Supporting 4. Fluid Loose- Contains an array or proteins in a soft matrix, function- padding material Dense- Dominated by collagen fibes in ECM, Function- Connect muscles organs and bones Supporting- Very firm ECM, Function- Support/protection Fluid- Consists of cells surrounded by a liquid ECM Function- Major function of transport 2. Nervous Tissue- Consists of neurons and several types of supporting cells Dendries- short branches that transmit electrical signals from other cells to the cell body Longer than dendrites is Axons- carries electrical signals from cell body to other cells 3. Muscle Tissues- Function in movement and make of contracting cells Skeletal Muscle- Attach bones and exerts force when it contracts (voluntary) Cardiac Muscle- Pumps blood throughout the body (involuntary) Smooth Muscle- Lines the walls of the digestive tract and blood vessels (involuntary) 4. Epithelial Tissue- Barrier tissue cover the outside of the body and lines surface of organs and can form glands Organ- Structure that serves a specialized function and consists of several tissues Gland- Group of cells that secrete specific molecules or solutions Forms interface between interior and exterior of organ/organism Has polarity Basolateral- Faces inside Apical- Faces outside Humans Small intestines is composed of all major tissue types Human digestive system is essentially one long tube divided into chambers where food is processed and nutrients are absorbed Salivary glands, liver, pancreas secrete specific enzymes into the tube Out to inside 1. Epithelial 2. Connective 3. Nervous 4. Muscle Bio Lecture Notes 3-14-2016 Cell to Cell Interaction Clicker Questions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Cell Surface Plasma membrane is not alone it is attached to cytoskeletal elements, attached to interior of face of the bilayer, complex array of extracellular structures interact with the membranes exterior surface The Extracellular Layer or Extracellular Matrix Fibers are like steel rods in concrete, a gel-forming mixtures of polysaccharides is like concrete Plant Primary Cell Walls Define the primary shape of the plant cell Fibrous Component in plants are cellulose micro fibrils Gelatinous Polysaccharides in plants is Pectin Plant cell walls are fiber composites in plants cell wall Plant Secondary Cell Walls occur between the plasma membrane and primary cell wall in some mature plant cells The structures vary from plant to plant and correlates with that cell’s function The Animal ECM Collagen are the steel like components in animal cells, this is a protein Proteoglycans is the Gelatinous Polysaccharides, has protein core and many polysaccharides connected Different tissues have different compositions of ECM, similar cells that function as a unit Intercellular Connections are the basis of multicellularity Indirect attachment Direct Attachment Tight Junctions seal cells together Desmosomes- Connect cytoskeletons of cells Gap Junctions- channels between cells Tight Junctions- Cell-Cell attachments composed of specialized proteins in the plasma membrane of adjacent animal cells Desmosomes- Gap Junctions- Form pipes between cells, allow for rapid communication by passing regulatory molecules Plasmodesmata- Are the Gap junctions that are in plant cells Long Distance Signaling- Cell-Cell signals allow the activities of cells in different parts of a multicellular organism to be coordinated Hormones- Secreted information carrying molecules that can act on distant target cells, one type of long distance signaling Steps to Cell to Cell Signaling 1. Signal Reception- Receptor must be present to receive the signal 2. Signal Processing- Something must happen to initiate cell’s response 3. Signal Response- Second messengers/proteins in target cell may be activated or deactivated, gene expression may also be altered 4. Signal Deactivation- Cells have built-in systems to turns signals off, if not will result in cancer Signal Reception- Cell need to know that it is being hit with chemicals, Receptor- a protein that changes its shape and activity after binding to a signaling molecule These are dynamic and can be blocked, so the cell will not receive signal Lipid Soluble vs. Lipid Insoluble Signals Ability of a signaling molecule to pass through lipid bilayers is crucial in determining how a target cell recognizes it Most Lipid Soluble Signaling Molecules can diffuse across the hydrophobic region of the plasma membrane, Insoluble cannot cross because it is hydrophilic Bio Lecture Notes Cell-Cell Signaling 3-16-2016 Signal Transduction Begins at plasma membrane amplification occurs inside the cell 2 Major Types 1. G Protein Coupled receptors, initiate production 2. Enzyme-linked receptors, trigger protein activation in the cell In response to ligant binding the receptor changes shapes and activates its G- Protein The active G protein interacts with another protein in the plasma membrane This produces a second messenger Second Messengers are small non-protein signaling molecules that elicit and intracellular response to the first messenger They are not restricted to a single role or cell type More than one second messenger may be triggered by the same extracellular signaling molecule Enzyme Linked Receptors 1. Signal reception causes receptors to dimerize 2. The activated receptor complex phosphorylates itself at tyrosine residues 3. Binding proteins bind to the receptor and one activates Ras by exchanging GDP for GTP 4. Activated Ras activates a protein kinase 5. A phosphorylation cascade results, and causes some effect in the cell Second messengers/kinase cascades will alter gene expression or activate/deactivate proteins in the target cell Crosstalk Signal transduction pathways form network so cells may respond to many signals in an integrated manner Signal Transduction pathways interact with each other not independent Signal Deactivation Cells have built in systems to turn signals off G proteins coupled receptors Once activated G proteins turn downstream enzymes, GTP is hydrolyzed into GDP and P, this returns the G protein to an inactive state When second messengers are cleared from cytosol, the response stops Enzyme linked receptors ‘ Phosphates- enzymes that remove phosphate group from cascade proteins

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
