HOMEOSTASIS and TRANSPORT A4
A4. Homeostasis and Transport 1.Describe how the structure of the plasma membrane allows it to function as a regulatory structure and/or protective barrier for a cell. 2.Compare the mechanisms that transport materials across the plasma membrane. 3.Explain how organisms maintain homeostasis. 4.Describe how membrane-bound organelles facilitate the transport of materials within a cell.

Cell Membrane Structure and function Cell membranes are composed of phospholipids Phospholipids are arranged in two layers (bilayer) Each phospholipid has a “head” and two “tails” – The head loves water (hydrophilic) – The tails hate water (hydrophobic The lipid bilayer is flexible but strong
Cell Membrane Structure and Function DRAW THIS in your NOTES!!
Cell Membrane Structure and Function The cell membrane acts as a fluid… – It is not rigid – Proteins and phospholipids can move around The cell membrane is a mosaic… – Many different parts make up the cell membrane
Cell Membrane Structure and Function Barrier between the cytoplasm and the environment Protects and supports the cell Controls everything that enters and leaves the cell
Cell Membrane Structure and Function Membranes are selectively permeable Some things can cross the membrane (permeable) – Gases, water, small particles Some things can cross the membrane with the help of a protein channel or pump – Ions, proteins, large particles Some things can’t cross the membrane (impermeable)
Let’s Build a Model of a cell membrane! Cotton swabs represent phospholipids Other components are embedded within the phospholipid bilayer Can you move the components back and forth?
Can you do it? Give as many names for the boundary of the cell as you can…
Mechanisms of Passive Transport requires NO energy Depends on a concentration gradient (difference) – Concentration = relative amount of substance SUBSTANCE moves from HIGH concentration (of substance) to LOW concentration (of substance) Some materials can pass freely, other materials need a protein channel
Mechanisms of Passive Transport
Passive transport Depends on a concentration gradient – Concentration = relative amount of substance – Gradient = difference MOVEMENT from HIGH concentration to LOW concentration – Down the concentration gradient
Mechanisms of Passive Transport Passive – requires NO energy Depends on a concentration gradient (difference) – Concentration = relative amount of water MOVEMENT from HIGH concentration to LOW concentration just like simple diffusion EXCEPT needs a protein channel
Mechanisms of Passive Transport Diffusion of water WATER moves from HIGH concentration (of water) to LOW concentration (of water) Aquaporins = protein channels for water to pass Plays a role in maintaining homeostasis (water balance)
Osmosis Which way will the water molecules move? Why wouldn’t the green or purple molecules move?
Mechanisms of Active Transport Requires energy Material flows AGAINST the concentration gradient – From LOW concentration to HIGH concentration Requires protein pumps (need energy to work)
Movement within a cell Use ATP energy to move or “pump” material into an area that already has a high concentration It’s like pumping air into a basketball
Movement within a cell
Used to transport very large molecules or food Endocytosis = bringing materials into the cell Exocytosis = taking materials out of the cell Cell membrane/vesicles play a role
Movement within a cell
Homeostasis Maintaining stability in the cell or body Variables within the body can fluctuate – Temperature, pH, water balance Important to maintain homeostasis near set point Cell membrane aids in maintaining homeostasis
Homeostasis Diffusion of water Passive (no energy required) Water will move across the membrane down its concentration gradient Cell membrane regulates the amount of water inside a cell
Homeostasis Amount of water inside = amount of water outside Water moves back and forth across the membrane equally in both directions Equilibrium = equal concentrations of water on both sides of the membrane
Homeostasis Amount of solute surrounding cell is high (high solute = low water) Water moves out of the cell to balance concentrations of water on both sides of membrane Cell shrinks (dehydrates) EX: saltwater
Homeostasis Amount of solute surrounding cell is low (low solute = high water) Water moves INTO the cell to balance concentrations of water on both sides of membrane Cell swells (animal cells could burst) EX: pure water
Why would plant cells be better off than animal cells? What would happen to the cells of a freshwater fish if it was put into a saltwater tank?
Cell Transport Review Divide your poster into six sections In each section, diagram one of the following modes of transport – Simple diffusion – Facilitated diffusion – Osmosis – Active transport via protein pumps – Exocytosis – endocytosis
Keystone Questions 1.Carbon dioxide and oxygen are molecules that can move freely across a plasma membrane. What determines the direction that carbon dioxide and oxygen move? A.Orientation of cholesterol in the plasma membrane B.Concentration gradient across the plasma membrane C.Configuration of phospholipids in the plasma membrane D.Location of receptors on the surface of the plasma membrane
Keystone Questions 2.A sodium-potassium pump within a cell membrane requires energy to move sodium and potassium ions out of a cell.
