6 Size and Shape Composition Human cells vary considerably in size. All are microscopic.Cells differ notably in shape.Cytoplasm contains specialized organelles surrounded by a plasma membrane.CompositionCytoplasm contains specialized organelles.Plasma membrane surrounds each cell.Organization of cytoplasmic substances is important for life.The small, circular body called the nucleus is inside the cell.An ovum has a diameter of 150 micrometers.A red blood cell has a diameter of 7.5 micrometer.What are some of the shapes of different cell types?

12 Relationship of Cell Structure and Function Regulation of life processes.Survival of species through reproduction of the individual.Relationship of structure to function is apparent in number and type of organelles seen in different cells.What are some examples of specialized organelles?
13 Movement of Substances Through Cell Membranes Passive transport processesprocesses do not require added energy and result in movement “down a concentration gradient”types of passive transport include:diffusionosmosisdialysisfiltrationWhat are the two transport processes for moving substances into and out of cells? How are they different?
14 Movement of Substances Through Cell Membranes (cont’d.) Passive Transport ProcessesTo form urine in the kidney, wastes are filtered out of the blood into the kidney tubules because of differences in hydrostatic pressure.
15 Movement of Substances Through Cell Membranes (cont’d.) Passive transport processesDiffusionSubstances scatter themselves evenly throughout an available space.It is unnecessary to add energy to the system.Movement is from high to low concentration.Osmosis and dialysis are specialized examples of diffusion.What are osmosis and dialysis?What are solutes?
16 Movement of Substances Through Cell Membranes (cont’d.) Passive transport processesFiltrationMovement of water and solutes through a membrane because of a greater pushing force on one side of the membrane than on the other.This force is called hydrostatic pressure.Responsible for urine formation.Give some additional examples of filtration.
17 Movement of Substances Through Cell Membranes (cont’d.) Active transport processesoccurs only in living cellsmovement of substances is “ against/up the concentration gradient”requires energy from adenosine triphosphate (ATP)What is adenosine triphosphate (ATP)?
18 Movement of Substances Through Cell Membranes (cont’d.) Active Transport Processes
19 Movement of Substances Through Cell Membranes (cont’d.) Active transport processesIon pumpsAn ion pump is protein complex in cell membrane called a carrier.Ion pumps use energy from ATP to move substances across cell membranes against their concentration gradientsPhagocytosis and PinocytosisBoth are active transport mechanisms because they require cell energy.Phagocytosis is a protective mechanism often used to destroy bacteria.Pinocytosis is used to incorporate fluids or dissolved substances into cells.
21 Cell Reproduction Mitosis the process of cell reproduction, one cell divides to become two cells.tied closely to the production of proteinsWhat molecules play a crucial role in protein synthesis and mitosis? (DNA and RNA)
22 Cell Reproduction (cont’d.) DNA Molecule and Genetic InformationChromosomes are composed largely of DNA.DNA shaped like a long, narrow spiral staircase.Each step in the DNA ladder consists of pair of bases.Only two combinations of bases will occur A-T orC-G.Called complementary base pairing.What are the components of DNA? (Sugar, phosphate, nitrogen bases)What are the base pairs? (adenine–thymine and guanine-cytosine)
23 Genetic Code DNA Molecule and Genetic Information Genes dictate formation of enzymes and other proteins by ribosomes.Although the types of base pairs in all chromosomes are the same, the sequence varies.Each gene directs the synthesis of a specific protein.Genetic code—the storage of information in each geneHow many chromosomes are in human body cells? (46)
24 Genetic Code (cont’d.) RNA Molecules and Protein Synthesis Ribonucleic acid (RNA) transfers genetic information from the nucleus to the cytoplasm.RNA is made up of:sugar: ribosephosphatenitrogen bases: cytosine, guanine, adenine, uracilWhere does protein synthesis occur?
25 Genetic Code (cont’d.) RNA Molecules and Protein Synthesis TranscriptionDouble-stranded DNA separates to form messenger RNA (mRNA).Each strand of mRNA duplicates a particular gene (base-pair sequence) from a segment of DNA.mRNA molecules pass from the nucleus to the cytoplasm where they direct protein synthesis in ribosomes and ER.
26 Genetic Code (cont’d.) Translation Involves synthesis of proteins in cytoplasm by ribosomeRequires use of information contained in mRNA to direct the choice and sequencing of the building blocks called amino acidsAs amino acids are assembled into proper sequence, a protein strand forms.What happens after the protein strand is formed?
27 Genetic Code (cont’d.) Protein synthesis Go through the steps of transcription and translation as shown in the figure.
28 Cell DivisionReproduction of cell by division of the nucleus (mitosis) and the cytoplasmDNA ReplicationProcess by which each half of a DNA molecule becomes a whole molecule identical to the original DNA moleculeHappens before mitosisWhat is interphase?
29 Cell Division (cont’d.) MitosisProcess in cell division in which identical chromosomes (DNA molecules) to each new cell are formed when the original cell dividesEnables cells to reproduce their own kindName the four stages of mitosis. (prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase)
30 Stages of Mitosis Prophase—first stage Chromatin granules become organized.Chromosomes (pairs of linked chromatids) appear.Chromatids are held together by beadlike structure called centromere.Centrioles move away from each other.Spindle fibers form between centrioles.Nuclear envelope disappears, freeing genetic material.
31 Stages of Mitosis (cont’d.) Metaphase—second stageNuclear envelope and nucleolus have disappeared.Chromosomes align across center of cell.Spindle fibers attach themselves to each chromatid.What do spindle fibers resemble?
32 Stages of Mitosis (cont’d.) Anaphase—third phaseCentromeres break apart.Separated chromatids are now called chromosomes once again.Chromosomes are pulled to opposite ends of cell.Cleavage furrow develops at end of anaphase.Beginning to divide cell into two daughter cellsDaughter cells have identical genetic characteristics. Each may later undergo mitosis.
33 Stages of Mitosis (cont’d.) Telophase—fourth stageCell division is completed.Nuclei appear in daughter cells.Nuclear envelope and nucleoli appear.Cytoplasm and organelles divide equally.Daughter cells become fully functional.What are the results of cell division?Discuss neoplasm
