2Biology: What is Life? life study of Properties of Life Cellular Structure: the unit of life, one or manyMetabolism: photosynthesis, respiration, fermentation, digestion, gas exchange, secretion, excretion, circulation--processing materials and energyGrowth: cell enlargement, cell numberMovement: intracellular, movement, locomotionReproduction: avoid extinction at deathBehavior: short term response to stimuliEvolution: long term adaptation
3Homeostasis - metabolism Nutrition ModeEnergy SourceCarbon SourcePhotoautotrophLightCO2ChemoautotrophInorganic chemPhotoheterotrophOrganic chemChemoheterotrophAll of these nutritional modes are found among prokaryotes!Eukaryotes are not as diverse in their nutritional modes.

5Eukaryotes What is special about them? How big are their cells? What type of metabolism do they have?Which electron acceptor do they use?What is special about oxygen as an electron acceptor?What do they do poorly?
8How would you describe the host cell’s metabolism? PseudopodiaEndosymbioticbacteriaPelomyxa palustrisFree-living in freshwater sediment (microaerophilic)Phagocytosis activeUroidAccumulate glycogen reservesAt least 3 species of endosymbiont in each cell…two species are methanogenic archaeons!Glycogen bodyHow would you describe the host cell’s metabolism?VacuolesFermentation Only!
9How would you describe the metabolism? Photoautotrophic and Chemoheterotrophic!Euglena gracilisPosterior extensionMitochondrionPyrenoidNucleusChloroplastsParamylon grainProtein pellicle(striations)Contractile vacuoleEyespotAnterior invaginationWith internal short flagellumLong flagellum rooted here also(not shown)
10How would you describe the parasite’s metabolism? Trypanosoma gambienseNucleusBlood-borne parasite member of euglenophytaFlagellumFlagellated undulating cellVectored by Tsetse fly between alternate hostsChemical agent causes African sleeping sicknessHow would you describe the parasite’s metabolism?Chemoheterotrophic!
11Amoeba proteus A freshwater amoeboid protist Engulfing a Staurastrum green algaAmoeba proteusFood vacuolesContractile vacuoleThe pseudopodia assist in locomotion and phagocytosis,but they also secrete proteolytic enzymes to digest particles outside the cell.NucleusHow would you describe the amoeba’s nutritional mode?Chemoheterotrophic!MitochondriaPseudopodiaHow would you describe Staurastrum’s nutritional mode?Photoautotrophic and Heteterotrophic!
12How would you describe Stentor’s nutritional mode? Stentor polymorphusFunnel-shaped protistCytostome rim is ciliatedFood swept into alveolusCiliaContractile vacuoleHow would you describe Stentor’s nutritional mode?Chemohetero-trophic!NucleusHoldfastMicronucleus (2N)Macronucleus (N)replicationtranscription

15Ectocarpus siliculosus Marine haploid filamentous thallus with true branching.Produces motile gamete by mitosis in gametangium.gametangiumstramenopila-flagellumchloroplastsKingdom Chromista (aka Stramenopila)Obviously both photoautotrophicand chemoheterotrophic!
16Chemoheterotrophic only! A water mold, Phytophthora infestans, was responsible for the potato blight that led to crop failure, starvation, and emigration of the Irish population in the 1840s.Kingdom ChromistaChemoheterotrophic only!
22Saccharomyces: yeast from kingdom Fungi? Mitosis nearly complete Cytokinesis via furrowing (budding!)Facultative:Aerobic Respiration with mitochondriaAnaerobic Alcoholic Fermentation in cytosol?Cell wall: chitin not celluloseChemoheterotrophic only!Has more mitochondria in 3rd dimension…this is a TEMThin slices miss components…this cell appears to lack mitochondria ! Think 3D…
