CHAPTER 4A Tour of the Cell By Dr. Par Mohammadian

  • Overview:

  • Microscopes

  • Cells

  • Prokaryotes

  • Eukaryotes

  • Animal Cells

  • Plants Cells

  • Cell Junctions



Introduction to the world of the cell l.jpg
INTRODUCTION TO THE WORLD OF THE CELL

  • Using a microscope, Robert Hooke discovered cells in 1665

  • Cells are the building blocks of all life

  • Organisms are either

  • Single-celled, such as most bacteria

  • Multicelled, such as plants, animals


Microscopes provide windows to the world of the cell l.jpg
Microscopes provide windows to the world of the cell

The light microscope (LM) enables us to see the overall shape and structure of a cell


Slide5 l.jpg


Slide6 l.jpg

  • They use a beam of electrons instead of light

  • The greater resolving power of electron microscopes

    • allows greater magnification (0.2 nm vs. LM 0.2 µm)

    • reveals cellular details

  • LM remains the major tool to study living organisms because in EM specimen must be held in vacuum.

Natural laws limit cell size l.jpg
Natural laws limit cell size detailed architecture of the surface of a cell

  • At minimum, a cell must be large enough to house the parts it needs to survive and reproduce

  • The maximum size of a cell is limited by the amount of surface needed to obtain nutrients from the environment and dispose of wastes


Cells prokaryotic cells eukaryotic cells animal cells plant cells l.jpg
Cells detailed architecture of the surface of a cell Prokaryotic Cells Eukaryotic Cells Animal Cells Plant Cells


The two major categories of cells l.jpg
The Two Major Categories of Cells detailed architecture of the surface of a cell

  • The countless cells on earth fall into two categories

  • Prokaryotic cells

  • Eukaryotic cells

  • Prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells differ in several respects


Slide12 l.jpg

  • Prokaryotic cells


Slide13 l.jpg

  • The cell wall may be covered by a sticky capsule (help glue prok. to surfaces)

  • Inside the cell are its DNA and other parts


Eukaryotic cells are partitioned into functional compartments l.jpg
Eukaryotic cells are partitioned into functional compartments

  • All other life forms (such as animals, plants, protists, or fungi) are made up of one or more eukaryotic cells

  • These are larger and more complex than prokaryotic cells

  • Eukaryotes are distinguished by the presence of a true nucleus


Slide15 l.jpg

  • The cytoplasm contains organelles

  • Many organelles have membranes as boundaries

    • These compartmentalize the interior of the cell

    • This allows the cell to carry out a variety of activities simultaneously


Slide16 l.jpg

  • Chloroplasts

  • A rigid cell wall

  • Central vacuole


The nucleus is the cell s genetic control center l.jpg
The nucleus is the cell’s genetic control center environment

  • The largest organelle is usually the nucleus

  • The nucleus is separated from the cytoplasm by the nuclear envelope

  • The nucleus is the cellular control center

    • It contains the DNA that directs the cell’s activities

  • Genes in the nucleus store information necessary to produce proteins


Membrane structure and function l.jpg
MEMBRANE STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION environment

  • The plasma membrane separates the living cell from its nonliving surroundings

A Fluid Mosaic of Lipids and Proteins

  • The membranes of cells are composed of

  • Lipids

  • Proteins


Cytoplasm l.jpg
Cytoplasm environment

  • The endomembrane system is a collection of membranous organelles

    • These organelles manufacture and distribute cell products

    • The endomembrane system divides the cell into compartments

    • Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is part of the endomembrane system


Rough endoplasmic reticulum makes membrane and proteins l.jpg
Rough endoplasmic reticulum makes environmentmembrane and proteins

  • The rough ER manufactures membranes

  • Ribosomes on its surface produce proteins

  • The “roughness” of the rough ER is due to ribosomes that stud the outside of the ER membrane

  • Synthesized polypeptide is passed into ER

  • Sugars attach to polypeptides forming glycoprotein

  • ER packages it in tinny sacs called transport vesicles

  • It buds off from the ER & secretory vesicles travel to Golgi apparatus.


Slide21 l.jpg

  • The functions of the rough ER include


Smooth endoplasmic reticulum has a variety of functions l.jpg
Smooth endoplasmic reticulum has a variety of functions environment

  • Smooth ER synthesizes lipids

  • In some cells, it regulates carbohydrate metabolism and breaks down toxins and drugs

  • Stores Ca ions


The golgi apparatus finishes sorts and ships cell products l.jpg
The Golgi apparatus finishes, sorts, and ships cell products environment

  • The Golgi apparatus consists of stacks of membranous sacs

    • These receive and modify ER products, then send them on to other organelles or to the cell membrane


Lysosomes digest the cell s food and wastes l.jpg
Lysosomes digest the cell’s food and wastes environment

  • Lysosomes are sacs of digestive enzymes

  • Lysosomal enzymes

  • digest food

  • destroy bacteria

  • recycle damaged organelles

  • function in embryonic development in animals


Vacuoles l.jpg
Vacuoles environment

  • Two types are the contractile vacuoles of protists and the central vacuoles of plants

  • Vacuoles are membranous sacs

  • The vacuole has lysosomal and storage functions


Chloroplasts and mitochondria energy conversion l.jpg
CHLOROPLASTS AND MITOCHONDRIA: ENERGY CONVERSION environment

  • Cells require a constant energy supply to do all the work of life


Chloroplasts l.jpg
CHLOROPLASTS environment

  • Chloroplasts are the sites of photosynthesis, the conversion of light energy to chemical energy


Mitochondria l.jpg
Mitochondria environment

  • Mitochondria are the sites of cellular respiration, which involves the production of ATP from food molecules


The cell s internal skeleton helps organize its structure and activities l.jpg

THE CYTOSKELETON AND RELATED STRUCTURES environment

The cell’s internal skeleton helps organize its structure and activities

  • A network of protein fibers makes up the cytoskeleton


Maintaining cell shape l.jpg
Maintaining Cell Shape environment

  • One function of the cytoskeleton

  • Provide mechanical support to the cell and maintain its shape


Slide31 l.jpg

  • The cytoskeleton can change the shape of a cell


Slide32 l.jpg

  • Microfilaments of actin enable cells to change shape and move


Cilia and flagella move when microtubules bend l.jpg
Cilia and flagella move when microtubules bend organelles

  • Eukaryotic cilia and flagella are locomotor appendages that protrude from certain cells

  • A cilia or flagellum is composed of a core of microtubules wrapped in an extension of the plasma membrane


Slide34 l.jpg

  • Cilia move in a coordinated back-and-forth motion


Slide35 l.jpg

  • The human windpipe is lined with cilia


Cell junctions l.jpg
Cell Junctions organelles


Cell surfaces protect support and join cells l.jpg

EUKARYOTIC CELL SURFACES AND JUNCTIONS organelles

Cell surfaces protect, support, and join cells

  • Cells interact with their environments and each other via their surfaces

  • Plant cells are supported by rigid cell walls made largely of cellulose

    • They connect by plasmodesmata, channels that allow them to share water, food, and chemical messages


Plant cell walls and cell junctions l.jpg
Plant Cell Walls and Cell Junctions organelles

  • These provide support for the plant cells

  • Plant cells are encased by cell walls


Animal cell surfaces and cell junctions l.jpg
Animal Cell Surfaces and Cell Junctions organelles

  • Animal cells lack cell walls

  • They secrete a sticky covering called the extracellular matrix

  • This layer helps hold cells together

  • Animal cells connect by various types of junctions

  • Tight junctions

  • Adhering junctions

  • Communicating junctions


Slide40 l.jpg

  • Tight junctions can bind cells together into leakproof sheets
