2 What Are the Basic Attributes of Cells? All cells share common featuresDNA and RNAplasma membranecytoplasm consists of all the fluid and structures that lie inside the plasma membrane but outside of the nucleusThe fluid portion of the cytoplasm (cytosol) contains water, salts, and organic moleculesMost of the cell’s metabolic activities occur in the cell cytoplasm
3 The Plasma Membrane Functions: glycoproteincarbo-hydrateextracellular fluid (outside)cytoplasm (inside)cholesterolmembraneproteinchannel proteincytoskeletonA phospholipid bilayerhelps to isolate thecell's contentsProteins help the cellcommunicate withits environmentFunctions:isolates the cell’s contents from the external environmentregulates the exchange of essential substancesallows communication between cellscreates attachments within and between cellsregulates biochemical reactionsPhospholipid bilayer – allows the cell to maintain essential differences in concentrations of material.Proteins are responsible for exchanging and communicating, controlling reactions, and forming connections.10,000 membranes stacked atop one another would scarcely equal the thickness of one page.Membranes vary from one tissue type to another, and their structures can also change dynamically in response to their surroundings.Fig. 4-2

7 What Are the Major Features of Eukaryotic Cells? Cell wallsouter surfaces of plants, fungi, and some protistsPlant cell walls are composed of celluloseFungal cell walls are made of chitinCell walls are porous, allowing oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water carrying dissolved molecules to flow easily through themPlasmodesmata - openings that connect adjacent cells in plantsThe plasma membrane is located just beneath the cell wall1. Nonliving, stiff coating secreted outside cell membrane.2 & 3. some polysaccharides (including prokayrotes) Protists have cellulose, protein, or glassy silica.4. Protective but also ….

14 Endoplasmic Reticulum Vesicles are membranous sacs that transport substancesThe endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a series of interconnected membranes that form a labyrinth of interconnected flattened sacs and channels within the cytoplasmAll the proteins and phospholipids of cell membranes are synthesized in the EREndomembrane system – loosely connected compartments. Segregate molecules from the surrounding cytosol and ensure orderly process of chemical reactions.Vesicles – temporaryReticulum means network
15 Endoplasmic Reticulum There are two forms of ER:Smooth endoplasmic reticulum has no ribosomes, detoxifies drugs, and synthesizes lipids like steroid hormones made from cholesterolRough endoplasmic reticulum is studded with ribosomes and synthesizes proteins destined for other membranes or for secretionribosomessmooth ERrough ERvesiclesSmooth ER – scarce in most cells except liver, mammalian reproductive.detoxifies alcohol, metabolic wastes like ammonia
16 The Golgi ApparatusFunctions: sorts, chemically alters, and packages important moleculesIt synthesizes some polysaccharides used in plant cell walls, such as cellulose and pectinIt packages the finished molecules into vesicles that are then transported to other parts of the cell (lysosomes) or to the plasma membrane for exportVesicles from theER merge withthe GolgiapparatusVesicles carryingmodified protein leavethe Golgi apparatusGolgiNamed for the Italian cell biologist.

18 VacuolesServe many functions, including water regulation, support, and storageMost cells contain one or moresacs of cell membrane filled with fluid containing various moleculesMany freshwater organisms possess contractile vacuoles composed of collecting ducts, a central reservoir, and a tube leading to a pore in the plasma membrane that carries excess water out of the organismSome vacuoles are temporary large vesicles (food vacuoles)Permanent vacuoles in some freshwater protists and in plant cells:
19 Contractile Vacuoles Fig. 4-15 contractile vacuole Water enters the collecting ductsand fills the central reservoir(a) ParameciumcollectingductscentralreservoirporeFreshwater constantly leaks into contractile vacuoles through the cell membrane (osmosis).So much water would cause the organism to burst.Excrete the water by moving salt into collecting ducts then central reservoir.The reservoir contracts, expellingwater through the poreFig. 4-15(b) Contractile vacuole

Substances attract water into it -> water pressure – turgor pressureprovides support for the non-woody parts of the plant(when you forget to water your plants)

These molecules transfer the energy to ATP which diffuses into the stroma, where their energy is used to drive synthesis of sugar from CO2 and H2O.

27 What Are the Major Features of Prokaryotic Cells? Most prokaryotic cells (bacteria) are less than 5 µm long, with a simple internal structure compared to eukaryotic cellsThey usually have a stiff cell wallProkaryotic cells can take several shapes:Rod-shaped (bacilli)Spiral-shaped (spirilla)Spherical (cocci)Prokaryotic cells are small and possess specialized surface featuresProkaryotic cells have fewer specialized structures within their cytoplasm (no organelles)Eukaryotic cells are umSingle celled2. Antibiotics interfere with cell wall synthesis, causing the bacteria to rupture.
28 What Are the Major Features of Prokaryotic Cells? Some bacteria and archaea are propelled by flagellaInfectious bacteria may have polysaccharide adhesive capsules and slime layers on their surfacesPili are protein projections in some bacteria that further enhance adhesionIn the central region of the cell is an area called the nucleoid, which is separate from the cytoplasmWithin the nucleoid is a single, circular chromosome of DNASmall rings of DNA (plasmids) are located in the cytoplasmNone have cilia.Flagella is structured differently from eukaryotes.Capsules and slime layers are similar except that capsules are more organized structurally so more difficult to remove. Allows them to stick to surfaces, protect, and prevent drying out.Pili (hairs) from cell wall.attachment pili: short and abundantsex pili: few and long. Binds to a nearby bacterium of the same type and draws them together to exchange DNA.4.
