1 Cell Structure and Function Donald Winslow, St. Gregorys University 25 January 2011 Readings: Mader, Sylvia 2011 Inquiry into Life, 13th ed. McGraw-Hill, NY Ch. 3; pp 47-52, 54-61, 63 Ch. 4; pp 68-69, 71-78 (on membranes)

2 Objectives List organelles found in most cells. Describe structure & function of these organelles. Give examples of cells where particular types of organelles are abundant. Describe structure & function of cell membranes. Contrast cell membranes & cell walls. Explain membrane transport processes.

3 Organelles in an endothelial cell

4 Nucleus Envelope (2 membranes) Functions in DNA replication & RNA synthesis Most eukaryotic cells have one nucleus. Syncytial eukaryotic cells have multiple nuclei. Prokaryotic cells do not have nuclei.

5 Mitochondria & chloroplasts Mitochondria Inner membrane & outer membrane Function in cellular respiration Especially abundant in muscle cells Chloroplasts Inner membrane & outer membrane Function in photosynthesis Especially abundant in leaf cells

6 Endoplasmic reticulum One membrane surrounding lumen Lipid bilayer synthesis, transport to membranes Rough endoplasmic reticulum (with ribosomes) Proteins imported into ER as they are made Smooth endoplasmic reticulum

7 Ribosomes No membranes 2 subunits composed of protein & RNA Protein synthesis from info in messenger RNA Especially abundant in cells that secrete proteins

8 Lysosomes & peroxisomes Lysosomes One membrane Intracellular digestion Peroxisomes One membrane Oxidation of toxins by peroxide Especially abundant in protective tissues

9 Golgi apparatus Stack of membrane-bound pancakes Staging area for ER products

10 Vesicular transport Transport vesicle

11 Cell membrane
