1 KEY CONCEPT Cells work together to carry out complex functions.

2 I can describe the specialization in multicellular organisms.
I can identify different types of stem cells.

3 Tissues are groups of cells that perform a similar function.
Multicellular organisms depend on interactions among different cell types. vascular tissue leaf stem lateral roots primary root SYSTEMS root system shoot system Tissues are groups of cells that perform a similar function. Organs are groups of tissues that perform a specific or related function. Organ systems are groups of organs that carry out similar functions. CELL TISSUE ORGAN

4 Specialized cells perform specific functions.
Cells develop into their mature forms through the process of cell differentiation. Cells differ because different combinations of genes are expressed. A cell’s location in an embryo helps determine how it will differentiate. Outer: skin cells Middle: bone cells Inner: intestines

5 Stem cells are unique body cells.
Stem cells have the ability to divide and renew themselves remain undifferentiated in form develop into a variety of specialized cell types

6 Stem cells are classified into three types.
totipotent, or growing into any other cell type pluripotent, or growing into any cell type but a totipotent cell multipotent, or growing into cells of a closely related cell family

7 Stem cells come from adults and embryos.
Adult stem cells can be hard to isolate and grow. The use of adult stem cells may prevent transplant rejection. The use of embryonic stem cells raises ethical issues Embryonic stem cells are pluripotent and can be grown indefinitely in culture. First, an egg is fertilized by a sperm cell in a petri dish. The egg divides, forming an inner cell mass. These cells are then removed and grown with nutrients. Scientists try to control how the cells specialize by adding or removing certain molecules.

8 The use of stem cells offers many currently realized and potential benefits.
Stem cells are used to treat leukemia and lymphoma. Stem cells may cure disease or replace damaged organs. Stem cells may revolutionize the drug development process.

9 Which sequence shows the progression from least complex structure to most complex structure?
a. cell organ tissue organ system b. cell tissue organ organ system c. organ system tissue organ cell d. organ system organ tissue cell

10 Which phrase best describes an organ system?
a. group of specialized cells that forms organs b. group of cells that differentiates at the same rate c. group of tissues that performs a function d. group of organs that work together

11 Which of the following is a direct result of a normal cell's ability to express only certain genes?
a. Cells can become totipotent. b. Cells can grow and reproduce. c. Cells can mutate and adapt. d. Cells can differentiate and specialize.

12 Stem cells are important to multicellular organisms because of their
a. capacity to differentiate. b. tendency to maintain homeostasis. c. potential to become totipotent. d. ability to relocate.

13 Which type of stem cell can grow into any other cell type?
a. somatic b. multipotent c. totipotent d. pluripotent
