CH. 7 – CELLS
I. CELLS A. What is a cell? 1. Cell – the smallest unit of matter that can carry on all the processes of life
I. CELLS B. Who first discovered the cell? 1. Anton van Leeuwenhoek – first to observe cells 2. Robert Hooke – used the light microscope to observe cork a. First person to call the shapes inside of organisms “cells”
I. CELLS 3. Rudolph Virchow – studied cell reproduction and discovered that all cells come from other pre- existing cells.
I. CELLS 4. Mathias Schleiden – studied plants and discovered that all plants are made of cells 5. Theodor Schwann – studied animals and discovered that all animals are made of cells
I. CELLS C. What is the cell theory? 1. The cell theory was developed by theories of Hooke, Virchow, Schleiden, and Schwann. a. The cell is the basic unit of organization for organisms. b. All organisms are made of one or more cells. c. All cells come from other pre-existing cells.
I. CELLS 2. With better microscopes, scientists observed that cells contained specialized structures. a. Organelles – cells parts that perform a specific job or function for the cell
I. CELLS D. Cell Diversity! 1. Your body alone contains 200 different cell types! 2. Cells Organisms can be classified by the number of cells they are made up of. a. Unicellular Organism – single celled organism Example: bacteria, yeast b. Multicellular Organism – organism made up of many cells Example: plants, animals

IV. CELL ASSEMBLY Vacuole Function: Stores food, water, waste, proteins, carbs Fact: Helps maintain homeostasis Found in: Eukaryotes (plants have a LARGE vacuole) Vacuole
IV. CELL ASSEMBLY Lysosomes Function: Uses enzymes to digest old organelles and foreign objects (bacteria, viruses) Fact: “Suicide sacs” Found in: Eukaryotes Lysosome
IV. CELL ASSEMBLY Ever wonder how a tadpole gets rid of its tail and grows legs???? It’s lysosomes digest the cells in the tail, and these molecules are released to build different cells, like legs!
V. ENERGY TRANSFORMERS Chloroplast Function: Capture light (solar energy) and convert it to chemical energy during photosynthesis Fact: Glucose is the sugar made Found in: Eukaryotes (plants) Chloroplast
Mitochondria V. ENERGY TRANSFORMERS Mitochondria Function: Breaks down food into ATP energy during cellular respiration Fact: “Powerhouse” of the cell Found in: Eukaryotes
VI. SUPPORT & LOCOMOTION Cytoskeleton Function: Maintains the shape & supports the cell Fact: Made of microfilaments & microtubules Found throughout the cytoplasm Found in: Eukaryotes Prokaryotes

VI. SUPPORT & LOCOMOTION Flagella Function: Movement of cells Fact: Long hair-like fibers Found in: Eukaryotes Prokaryotes Flagella Cilia
VII. LEVELS OF ORGANIZATION A. Organization: Organelles Cells Tissues Organs Organ systems Organisms
VIII. THE CELL MEMBRANE A. A cell’s survival depends on the cell’s ability to maintain the necessary conditions inside itself. 1. Maintaining these constant internal conditions is called homeostasis.
VIII. THE CELL MEMBRANE B. Cell Membrane – flexible boundary between the cell and its outside environment 1. Allows water and nutrients to enter the cell and wastes to leave the cell. Water Cell Membrane
VIII. THE CELL MEMBRANE 2. Selectively Permeable – allowing some materials to pass while keeping others out a. Example: A spaghetti strainer allows water, but not spaghetti to pass through
VIII. THE CELL MEMBRANE C. What is the cell membrane made up of? 1. Phospholipids – diglyceride with a phosphate group attached
VIII. THE CELL MEMBRANE a. Phospholipid Bilayer – the cell membrane is TWO layers thick
VIII. THE CELL MEMBRANE b. Phospholipids have a polar “head” and non polar “tail”. - Polar “heads” are attracted to water, sugars, and proteins.
VIII. THE CELL MEMBRANE - Non-polar “tails” repel water, sugars, and proteins. - Resulting in a selectively permeable membrane.
VIII. THE CELL MEMBRANE 2. Proteins are embedded in the cell membrane to recognize substances that can enter and exit the cell.
VIII. THE CELL MEMBRANE 3. Cholesterol stabilizes the membrane by preventing lipids from sticking together.
VIII. THE CELL MEMBRANE D. Fluid Mosaic Model - describes how phospholipids can move around like a fluid and the proteins make a pattern
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT A. What types of materials need to cross the cells membrane? Water, nutrients, oxygen, waste B. In cells, particles always move to reach equal concentrations. 1. Concentration Gradient – unequal distribution of particles
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT C. Types of Transport 1. Passive Transport – movement of any substance across a membrane WITHOUT the use of chemical energy. a. Occurs from high to low concentration, with the concentration gradient.
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT b. Types of Passive Transport - Diffusion – movement of molecules across a selectively permeable membrane; occurs from high to low concentration, with the concentration gradient.
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT - Example: Oxygen diffuses into the bloodstream because of a high pressure in the lungs.
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT - Osmosis – movement of water across a selectively permeable membrane; occurs from high to low concentration, with the concentration gradient.
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT c. How are larger and strongly charged molecules, such as glucose, able to pass through the cell membrane more quickly than they should? - Facilitated diffusion – passive transport of large particles across a membrane with the help of proteins; occurs from a high to low concentration, with the concentration gradient - Example: Sugars, Amino Acids Glucose molecules Low Concentration Cell Membrane High Concentration Protein channel
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT
2. Types of Solution – How does the water “know” which way to move? a. Hypertonic Solution – (high solute concentration) more water on the inside of the cell than the outside of the cell. - Water moves OUT of the cell. - Size of the cell = shrinks (plasmolysis) H 2 O + NaCl Solution
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT b. Hypotonic Solution – (low solute concentration) more water on the outside of the cell than the inside of the cell. - Water moves INTO the cell. - Size of the cell = swells - Cytolysis = animal cells burst - Turgor Pressure = water pushes against cell wall in plants H2O + NaCl Solution
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT c. Isotonic Solution – equal concentration of water and solute inside and outside the cell - Water moves in and out of cell equally. - Size of cell = stays the same H2O + NaCl Solution
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT CriteriaInside CellOutside Cell Where is there more solvent (water)? hypertonichypotonic Where is there more solute (salts, dissolved substances)? hypotonichypertonic
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT 3. Diffusion is a powerful process, however, sometimes cells need to move materials in the opposite direction. a. Active Transport – proteins are used to move ions or molecules against the concentration gradient, using ATP energy. - Occurs from areas of low to high concentrations. - Examples: minerals, nutrients
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT 4. Types of Active Transport a. Endocytosis – process when a cell surrounds and takes in materials from the environment - Example: White blood cell engulfing a bacterium.
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT - Two types of Endocytosis - Pinocytosis – movement of liquids into a cell - Phagocytosis – movement of solids in a cell
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT b. Exocytosis – the explusion (exit) or secretion of material out a cell - Example: Cell getting rid of waste.
VIIII. CELL TRANSPORT c. Although endocytosis and exocytosis are different, the two processes often work TOGETHER.
