Key concept cells have distinct phases of growth reproduction and normal functions

KEY CONCEPT Cells have distinct phases of growth, reproduction, and normal functions.


The cell cycle represents the life cycle of a cell

The cell cycle represents the life cycle of a cell.

  • The cell cycle has three main stages:

  • (1) INTERPHASE

  • (a) G1: cell grows, organelles double in number; cell does its job

  • (b) S (DNA synthesis) DNA is copied

  • (c) G2 : More growth;

  • (2)Mitosis: division of the cell’s DNA

  • (3) Cytokineses (cell divides into 2 cells)


Why do cells divide

Why do cells divide?

  • They become too large

    • The volume of the cell increases faster than the surface area

    • Cells need large surface area (cell membranes) to move things in and out


Why do cells divide1

Why do cells divide?

  • 2.To make more cells so the organism can grow

    • Example: a growing baby needs more skin cells!

  • 3.To replace old, worn out cells

  • Cells reproduce at different times depending on their jobs.


Some cells do not divide in adults

Some cells do not divide in adults:

  • Brain cells

  • Nerve cells

  • Muscle cells

Stem Cells are the focus of much research to find ways to create new cells of these types.

5.2 KEY CONCEPT The goal of mitosis/cytokinesis is to make 2 identical daughter cells.


Before mitosis starts chromosomes must be made to package the dna

Before Mitosis starts, chromosomes must be made to “package” the DNA

(2) DNA coils around proteins called histones.

(1) DNA is copied in S period of Interphase.

(3) Anaphase

  • Sister chromatids divide.

  • Chromosomes are pulled to the poles.

Duplicated chromosome

Chromosome vocabulary

  • Chromosome = Coiled DNA

  • Sister Chromatids: Two identical chromosomes held together


Mitosis occurs in 4 steps

Mitosis occurs in 4 steps:

  • Prophase

  • Metaphase

  • Anaphase

  • Telophase

  • Cytokinesis: the process of dividing the cell’s cytoplasm follows immediately after mitosis


Key concept cells have distinct phases of growth reproduction and normal functions

(1) Prophase

  • Early Prophase:

  • Chromosomes are made; sister chromatids are formed

  • Nuclear membrane breaks down

  • Middle/Late Prophase:

  • Spindle fibers form

    • polar fibers

    • kinetochore fibers

    • asters form (only in animal cells)

(2) Metaphase

  • Kinetochore fibers move sister chromatids to the equator of the cell and line them up.

(3) Anaphase

  • Sister chromatids divide.

  • Chromosomes are pulled to the poles.

(4) Telophase

  • Chromosomes unwind.

  • Nuclear membranes reform.

  • Spindle fibers break apart.


Cytokinesis

Cytokinesis

  • Cytokinesis differs in plant and animal cells:

  • In animal cells, the membrane pinches in.

  • In plant cells, a cell plate grows down middle.

5.3 KEY CONCEPTTo remain healthy, mitosis must be controlled.


In cancer mitosis is uncontrolled

In cancer, mitosis is uncontrolled.

  • Cancer cells divide constantly and form clumps called tumors.

  • Benign tumors: remain clumped; can be removed.

  • Malignant tumors: break apart (metastasize) and can form tumors in other parts of the body.


Cancer cells

Cancer Cells

Why are cancer cells a problem?

They do not do their jobs!

  • How do cells become cancerous?

  • Cancerous cells come from normal cells with damage to DNA.

  • Damage could be genetic or caused by carcinogens

  • Carcinogens are substances known to promote cancer.

    • Examples:

Cancer Cells

  • How do we treat cancer?

  • Radiation – using lasers to kill cancerous cells

  • Chemotherapy– using poisons to kill cancerous cells

  • Both treatments kill both cancerous and healthy cells.

Multicellular organisms depend on interactions among different cell types.

  • Tissues: groups of cells with same job

  • Organs: groups of tissues with same job

  • Organ systems : groups of organs


Specialized cells perform specific functions

Inner: intestines

Outer: skin cells

Middle: bone cells

Specialized cells perform specific functions.

  • Cell differentiation: when a cell “gets its job”

  • Cells differ because different DNA is read.

  • A cell’s location in an embryo helps determine what type of cell it will become


Key concept cells have distinct phases of growth reproduction and normal functions

Before a cell differentiates (gets its job), it’s a stem cell.

There are three types of stem cells:


Key concept cells have distinct phases of growth reproduction and normal functions

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.

  • Pros for Adult stem cells:

  • may prevent transplant rejection.

  • Cons for Adult stem cells:

  • can be hard to find and grow.

  • Pro for Embryonic stem cells:

  • are pluripotent and can be grown easily

  • Con for embryonic stem cells

  • raises ethical issues

  • Stem cells come from adults and embryos.

  • May replace damaged organs.
