Ribosomes A.Nonmembrane, universal structures B.Comprised of two interacting parts: ribosomal RNA and protein. C.Site of protein synthesis D.Where the translation of the genetic instructions yields specific polypeptides.
Lysosomes A.Membrane-enclosed sacs produced by Golgi apparatus B.Functions 1.Intracellular digestion 2.Recycling of a cells organic materials 3.Programmed cell death (apoptosis). C.Contain hydrolytic digestive enzymes. 1.Enzymes work best at low pH (5) 2.Membrane pumps in H + 3.Isolates digestion. D.Macrophages use lysosomes to digest bacteria.
Lysosomes E.Autophagy 1.When lysosomes digest parts of cells 2.Important during development (e.g., tadpole tail absorption, degeneration of webbing between human fingers). F.Missing or inactive lysosomal enzymes cause serious childhood diseases. 1.Pompes disease- missing carbohydrase, glycogen accumulates, damages liver. 2.Tay-Sachs disease- missing lipase, lipids accumulate in brain.
Vacuoles A.A membrane-bound sac that plays roles in intracellular digestion and the release of cellular waste products. B.In plants, a large central vacuole serves many functions 1.Storage of pigments or poisonous substances 2.Cell growth and support 3.Alllows for a large surface area to volume ratio. 4.Membrane is called the tonoplast C.Types include: food, digestive, and in some protists, water-regulating contractile vacuoles.
Peroxisomes A.Abundant in liver B.Not from endomembrane. From cytosol proteins and lipids. C.Transfers hydrogen (from substrates) to oxygen forming hydrogen peroxide(H 2 O 2 ). D.Also occur in germinating seeds (glyoxysomes) where they convert oils into sugars
Cell Wall A.Mainly cellulose fibers in a matrix of polysaccharides and proteins. B.Protect plant cells C.Prevent water loss. D.Maintain cell shape
Cytoskeleton A.Mechanical support and helps maintain shape. B.Elements can disassemble and reassemble in life of a cell. C.Three Types of Fibers 1.MicrotubulesMicrotubules 2.MicrofilamentsMicrofilaments 3.Intermediate filamentsIntermediate filaments
Microtubules A.Hollow cylinders B.25 nm in diameter C.Composed of -tubulin and -tubulin dimers D.Functions 1.Help maintain shape of cells. 2.Act as tracks along which organelles move. a)Motor molecules kinesin and dynein are associated with microtubules. b)Motor molecules change shape with ATP. 3.Move chromosomes. 4.Make up centrioles in animal cells.
Microtubules E.Cilia and Flagella 1.Cilia are short, usually numerous hairlike projections. 2.Flagella are longer, usually fewer, whip-like projections. 3.Composed of a pattern of microtubules.
Microfilaments A.Two chains of actin protein monomers twisted to form a helix. B.7 nm in diameter C.Functions 1.Forms a dense complex web just under the plasma membrane. 2.Form microvilli of intestinal cells 3.In plant cells, they form tracts along which chloroplasts circulate. D.Interaction with myosin 1.For muscle contraction 2.For pinching off cells during cell division 3.For amoeboid movement.
Intermediate Filaments A.Rope-like assemblies of fibrous keratin B.8-12 nm in diameter C.More permanent than microtubules and microfilaments. D.Functions 1.Support nuclear envelope and plasma membrane 2.Form cell-to-cell junctions.
Extracellular Matrix (ECM) A.Mesh of macromolecules outside plasma membrane of animal cells. B.Composed mainly of glycoproteins (collagen)- ½ of total protein in vertebrates. C.Provides support and anchorage for cells.
Intercellular Junctions A.Plants have Plasmodesmata B.Animal Cells 1.Tight Junctions- Block transport of substances between cells. 2.Desmosomes- Rivet cells together, but still permit transport of substances. 3.Gap Junctions- Two connecting protein rings in adjacent cells.
Endoplasmic Reticulum A.Continuous with outer membrane of the nuclear envelope. B.Most extensive portion of endomembrane system. C.Rough endoplasmic reticulum 1.Serves as mechanical support 2.Provides site-specific protein synthesis with membrane-bound ribosomes 3.Intracellular transport of protein. 4.Makes secretory proteins (mainly glycoprotiens) 5.Packages proteins as transport vesicles. 6.Makes new membranes.
Endoplasmic Reticulum D.Smooth ER (no ribosomes) 1.Synthesizes lipids, phospholipids, and steroids 2.In Liver a)Converts glycogen to glucose to regulate blood sugar. b)Detoxifies drugs and poisons (adds hydroxyl groups making them water soluble). 3.Stores Ca+ in muscle
Golgi Complex A.Membrane-bound structure B.Consists of a series of flattened membrane sacs (cisternae). C.Synthesis and packaging of materials (small molecules) for transport (in vesicles) 1.Receives protein-filled vesicles that bud from the ER at cis face. 2.Proteins are modified and repackaged as new vesicles. 3.Vesicles leave from trans face. 4.At plasma membrane, they discharge their contents as secretions. D.Produces lysosomes.
Mitochondria A.Have a double membrane that allows compartmentalization B.Inner membrane is highly convoluted, forming folds called cristae. 1.Cristae contain enzymes important to ATP production 2.Cristae also increase the surface area for ATP production C.Sites of cellular respiration. D.Contain ribosomes and their own DNA E.Specialize in energy capture and transformation.

B.Stores genetic information determining structure/function of cells C.Site where nucleic acids are synthesized 1.Chromatin: Fine strands of DNA and protein (histones) 2.Chromosomes: rod- like structures formed during cell division from coiled or folded chromatin.(46 in humans)
Nucleus D.Nucleoplasm 1. Semifluid medium of nucleus 2. Has a different pH from cytosol E.Nucleolus: sites where rRNA joins proteins to form ribosomes. F.Nuclear pores (100 nm)- permit passage of certain mRNA and ribosomes
Chloroplasts A.Specialized organelles found in algae and higher plants that capture energy through photosynthesis. B.Capture the energy available in sunlight and convert it to chemical bond energy via photosynthesis. C.Contain Chlorophylls 1.Responsible for the green color of a plant 2.The key light-trapping molecules in photosynthesis. 3.There are several types of chlorophyll, but the predominant form in plants is chlorophyll a.
Chloroplasts D.Have a double outer membrane that creates a compartmentalized structure E.Contain membrane-bound structures called thylakoids. F.Thylakoids are organized in stacks, called grana G.Energy-capturing reactions 1.Produce ATP and NADPH 2.Which fuel carbon-fixing reactions in the Calvin-Benson cycle 3.Carbon fixation occurs in the stroma 4.Where molecules of CO 2 are converted to carbohydrates.

I.Only plants, algae, and cyanobacteria carry on photosynthesis. J.There are no chloroplasts in cyanobacteria; chlorophyll is bound to cytoplasmic thylakoids.
