Thought Questions… Why are prokaryotic cells so much smaller than eukaryotic cells? Which type of cell was first on the planet? Why? What was the order of cellular diversity? Which type of cell has been more successful in terms of evolution, survival and populating the planet? How did we evolve from prokaryotic life into eukaryotic life?
Define and draw your interpretation of the evolution from prokaryotic life to eukaryotic life. Define the evidence we have for this process? What three main categories of life does it create? Pgs. Biology in Focus 484 - Red Book 529, 541
What we know: Prokaryotic Life originates between 3.5 to 3.9 billion years ago Chemiosmotic Mechanism of ATP Synthesis Use Molecular Hydrogen, Methane Hydrogen Sulfide for energy VERY DIFFERENT BUT THE SAME
What we know: Prokaryotes evolve from chemiosmotic mechanisms to photosynthesis Creates a Oxygen rich atmosphere. BAD and GOOD

Figure 6.31 Exploring Intercellular Junctions in Animal Tissues Tight junctions prevent fluid from moving across a layer of cells Tight junction 0.5 µm 1 µm Space between cells Plasma membranes of adjacent cells Extracellular matrix Gap junction Tight junctions 0.1 µm Intermediate filaments Desmosome Gap junctions At tight junctions, the membranes of neighboring cells are very tightly pressed against each other, bound together by specific proteins (purple). Forming continu- ous seals around the cells, tight junctions prevent leakage of extracellular fluid across a layer of epithelial cells. Desmosomes (also called anchoring junctions) function like rivets, fastening cells together into strong sheets. Intermediate filaments made of sturdy keratin proteins anchor desmosomes in the cytoplasm. Gap junctions (also called communicating junctions) provide cytoplasmic channels from one cell to an adjacent cell. Gap junctions consist of special membrane proteins that surround a pore through which ions, sugars, amino acids, and other small molecules may pass. Gap junctions are necessary for commu- nication between cells in many types of tissues, including heart muscle and animal embryos. TIGHT JUNCTIONS DESMOSOMES GAP JUNCTIONS

Water Potential = waters ability to move Always from high to low water potential. Pressure is positive (Increases waters ability to move) Solute Potential Always negative More solute water less likely to move

Objective: Students will understand the overall purpose of mitosis in cell division and the different phases of mitosis. Discussion: Purpose and Stages of Mitosis Lab: Counting Phases / Determining Time Monday, Oct. 14th
Mitosis 1.Using on onion root tip identify cells in the different stages of the cell cycle. 2. Count at least two full fields of view. If you have not counted 200 cells, then count a third field of view. 3. Calculate the estimated time spent in each phase. It takes24 hours (or 1,440 minutes) for onion root- tip cells to complete the cell cycle. Percent of cells in stage X 1,440 minutes = ___________ minutes of cell cycle spent in stage. Questions: 4.Would the percentage of cells in mitosis be the same for all of the tissues in a plant? 5.Using the same basic techniques predict how cancerous cells would be different?
Objective: Students will understand the control mechanisms of the cell cycle. Discussion: Cell Cycle Control Test. Tuesday Oct. 15th
Check points and G 0 Control of the cell cycle is like a… because… The checkpoints represent… because… If a cell passes the G1 check point it will go on to divide. If not it stays in G 0
How Check points work Players: CDK (Cyclin Dependent Kinases) Kinases – activate or inactivate proteins by phosphorylating them. CDK – activity is dependent on another protein cyclin. Cyclin – Proteins whose concentration fluctuates throughout the life of the cell. MPF – Maturation promoting factor or mitosis promoting factor
Starting at G1 cyclin concentration… and then… As cyclin concentration … MPF activity… Concentration of cyclin rises, activates MPF (CDK complex) Cell goes through mitosis – signal transduction pathway Concentration of cyclin vs. MPF activity
MPF activity is controlled by… MPF will stimulate the cell to go through mitosis (signal transduction pathway) G2 check point
Based on the G2 checkpoint hypothesize on two mutations that might cause cancer. Cancer cells
Based on the G2 checkpoint hypothesize on two mutations that might cause cancer. Cancer cells Oncogene: Mutation that causes cyclin concentration to stay elevated Tumor Suppressing genes don’t activate to degrade cyclin
