2 Topics in B2 Cells Diffusion Organs & Tissues Digestive System Photosynthesis ISA Photosynthesis re-cap Distribution of organisms Proteins (enzymes) Respiration October H/T TEST Cell division Genetics Speciation

3 All living things are made up of cells.

4 Animal and Plant Cells

5 What else do we have to add?

6 Yeast and Bacteria

7 Complete the table comparing 4 cell types Cell partAnimal cellPlant cellBacteria cellYeast cell nucleus cell membrane cell wall cytoplasm vacuole mitochondria chloroplasts ribosomes

8 Name the cell…… Cell A has a cell membrane and a cell wall and its genes aren’t in a distinct nucleus Cell B has a cell wall containing cellulose and a permanent vacuole Cell C has a nucleus, cell membrane and a cell wall Cell D has no cell wall.

9 Specialised cells…… Relate structure to function

10 Dissolved Substances Move by diffusion low conchigh conc

11 Diffusion Diffusion is the spreading of the …………….. of a gas, or of any substance in ……………….., resulting in a ……… movement from a region where they are of a ……………… concentration to a region with a ……………. concentration. The greater the ………………… in concentration, the ………………. the rate of diffusion.

12 Diffusion of Oxygen What is the name of the process that happens in all living cells and uses oxygen?

13 How is the rate of oxygen diffusion maximised?

14 Organisation Cells Tissues Organs Organ systems Organism

15 Tissues Muscular Glandular Epithelial

16 Stomach Tissues

17 The Stomach

18 Digestive System glands, such as the pancreas and salivary glands, which produce digestive juices the stomach and small intestine, where digestion occurs the liver, which produces bile the small intestine, where the absorption of soluble food occurs the large intestine, where water is absorbed from the undigested food, producing faeces.

19 Plant Organs & Tissues

20 Photosynthesis

21 Photosynthesis

22 Write the word equation _______ _____+_____  _____+_____ _______


24 How do you measure the rate?

25 What is the tank of water for?

26 Green plants and algae photosynthesise. They both contain chlorophyll. This is a green substance which absorbs light energy.

27 Limiting factors Light Light Carbon dioxide Carbon dioxide Temperature Temperature What would the ideal conditions be in a greenhouse? What are the disadvantages of growing food in greenhouses?


29 What is the glucose used for? 1. Stored as starch: glucose may be converted into insoluble starch for storage. 2. Respiration: plant cells use some of the glucose for respiration. 3. Making new substances: some glucose in plants and algae is used ■ to produce fat or oil for storage ■ to produce cellulose, which strengthens the cell wall ■ to produce proteins. To produce proteins, plants also use nitrate ions that are absorbed from the soil.

30 Effect of light on starch stored in leaf

31 Starch test on a leaf

32 Distribution of organisms Physical factors that may affect organisms are: ■ temperature ■ availability of nutrients ■ amount of light ■ availability of water ■ availability of oxygen and carbon dioxide.

33 Measuring distribution Quantitative data can be obtained by: ■ random sampling with quadrats. ■ sampling along a transect.

34 Belt transect Looking at change along a line e.g. along a river bank, beach, hillside….

35 Quadrats : random sampling

36 Sample Size Number of quadrats over what size area? Valid Need to consider what a reasonable and valid sample size would be. and Reproducible What is reasonable in terms of time/cost. Could it be done again?

37 Mean, Median, Mode Mean: add up and divide by how many Median: put in order and find the middle one Mode: most frequent one 2, 5, 8, 3, 5, 4, 8, 9, 2, 1, 1, 6, 7, 8, 6, 3, 5, 2, 8, 7, 8, 2, 8, 1, 9, 4, 3, 5, 4, 7

38 Proteins Protein molecules are made up of long chains of amino acids. These long chains are folded to produce a specific shape that enables other molecules to fit into the protein.

39 Folded into specific shape……..

40 Proteins act as….. ■ structural components of tissues such as muscles ■ hormones ■ antibodies ■ catalysts (enzymes)

41 Catalysts increase the rate of chemical reactions. Biological catalysts are called enzymes. Enzymes are proteins. The shape of an enzyme is vital for the enzyme’s function.


43 Effect of temperature High temperatures change the shape. (denature)


45 Digestive enzymes The digestive enzymes are produced by specialized cells in glands and in the lining of the gut. The enzymes then pass out of the cells into the gut where they come into contact with food molecules. They catalyse the breakdown of large molecules into smaller molecules.


47 1. The enzyme amylase is produced in the salivary glands, the pancreas and the small intestine. This enzyme catalyses the breakdown of starch into sugars in the mouth and small intestine. 2. Protease enzymes are produced by the stomach, the pancreas and the small intestine. These enzymes catalyse the breakdown of proteins into amino acids in the stomach and the small intestine. 3. Lipase enzymes are produced by the pancreas and small intestine. These enzymes catalyse the breakdown of lipids (fats and oils) into fatty acids and glycerol in the small intestine.

48 Different enzymes work best at different pH values Stomach pH ? Mouth pH ? Intestine pH ?

49 The stomach also produces hydrochloric acid. The enzymes in the stomach work most effectively in these acid conditions.

50 Bile The liver produces bile, which is stored in the gall bladder before being released into the small intestine. Bile neutralises the acid that was added to food in the stomach. This provides alkaline conditions in which enzymes in the small intestine work most effectively.

51 Some microorganisms produce enzymes that pass out of the cells. These enzymes have many uses in the home and in industry.

52 Enzymes in the home ■ biological detergents may contain protein- digesting and fat- digesting enzymes (proteases and lipases) ■ biological detergents are more effective at low temperatures than other types of detergents.

53 Industry ■ proteases are used to ‘pre-digest’ the protein in some baby foods ■ carbohydrases are used to convert starch into sugar syrup ■ isomerase is used to convert glucose syrup into fructose syrup, which is much sweeter and therefore can be used in smaller quantities in slimming foods.

54 Does it save money…? In industry, enzymes are used to bring about reactions at normal temperatures and pressures that would otherwise require expensive, energy- demanding equipment. However, most enzymes are denatured at high temperatures and many are costly to produce.


56 It happens all the time….. Aerobic respiration takes place continuously in both plants and animals. Most of the reactions in aerobic respiration take place inside mitochondria.

57 The energy will be used to: 1. Move: in animals, to enable muscles to contract 2.Keep warm: in mammals and birds, to maintain a steady body temperature in colder surroundings 3.Growth and repair:  to build larger molecules from smaller ones  in plants, to build up sugars, nitrates and other nutrients into amino acids which are then built up into proteins.

58 Why does the farmer keep them warm? Why might a farmer stop them running around too much?

59 Exercise ■ the heart rate increases ■ the rate and depth of breathing increases. These changes increase the blood flow to the muscles and so increase the supply of sugar and oxygen and increase the rate of removal of carbon dioxide. Why?

60 Muscles If muscles are subjected to long periods of vigorous activity they become fatigued, ie they stop contracting efficiently. One cause of muscle fatigue is the build-up of lactic acid in the muscles. Blood flowing through the muscles removes the lactic acid. Muscles store glucose as glycogen, which can then be converted back to glucose for use during exercise.
