Cells part one structures and function

People did not know cells existed until the discovery of the microscope .

The microscope was invented by Robert Hooke in 1665 and therefore he was the first person to see cells.

When Hooke saw cork cells he compared them to the small rooms in a monastery which were called cells and coined the word “cell”

Anton van Leeuwenhoek – (1683)was the first person to observe living organisms in pond water.

What is a CELL???

  • A cell is the smallest functioning part of an organism.

  • The shape of a cell is related to function – why do you think blood cells are smooth and round but nerve cells have many long projections?

  • Cells vary in size and shape. Click here to have a look at an animation that illustrates the size of cells

  • Some Organisms are Unicellular = composed of ONE cell

  • Some organisms are Multicellular = composed of MANY cells

  • Cell Theory

    • All living things are made up of cells.

    • Cells are the basic units of all living things.

    • All cells are produced from existing cells.

Schleiden,Schwann and Virchow

Classification of Cells

Prokaryotes

Eukaryotes

  • have a nucleus

  • have organelles

  • Have specialized functions.

    Example:

    plant & animal cells

  • smallest & simplest cells

  • lack a nucleus

  • lack organelles

  • no specialized functions.

    Example: Bacteria


Prokaryotes

Prokaryotes

  • Prokaryotes are the single-celled organisms, such as bacteria.. Unlike Eukaryotes, prokaryotes do not have a nucleus that houses its genetic material. Rather, the genetic material of a prokaryote cell consists of a large DNA molecule in the cytoplasm


Prokaryotes1

Prokaryotes

  • Prokaryotes are asexual, meaning their offspring nearly always have the exact characteristics of the parent cell. The prokaryotic cell replicates itself according to its own DNA.


Eukaryotes

Eukaryotes

Eukaryotic cells - Can be unicellular (protists such as paramecium and amoebae) or multicellular (animals, and plants or fungi).

Wikipedia


Eukaryotes1

Eukaryotes

  • Eukaryotic cells are the more complex cells of plants and animals. They have specialized organelles.

  • Eukaryotic DNA is enclosed by a membrane making a well defined nucleus.

Note that this is a plant cell – animal cells are also eukaryotic


Eukaryotes2

Eukaryotes

  • Cell division in eukaryotes is different from prokaryotes. There are two types of division processes involved in eukaryotic cells.

  • The first is called mitosis, one cell divides to produce two genetically-identical cells.

  • The second is meiosis, which is required in sexual reproduction, cells undergo recombination of each pair of parental chromosomes.

Eukaryotes

Plant Cells

Animal Cells

(click here for picture)

  • have cell walls

  • have chloroplasts

  • have a large vacuole

  • tend to be squared or rectangular

  • have only cell membranes

  • have smaller vacuoles

  • tend to be round

After you have looked at plants and animals individually click here to compare

Can you spot a few differences between plant and animal cells?


Cells part one structures and function

Similarities

Both Plant and Animal Cells have:

  • Ribosomes

  • Cell Membranes

  • Golgi apparatus

  • Cytoplasm

  • Mitochondria

  • A Nucleus with a nuclear envelope

  • A Nucleolus

  • Endoplasmic Reticulum (both Smooth and Rough )


Plant cells have animal cells have

Plant Cells have… Animal Cells have…

  • Chloroplasts – an organelle which allows the plant to make it’s own food)

  • Vacuoles (large)- Some animal cells have small vacuoles but plant vacuoles hold water and take up a lot of room – they provide structure and support for the cell

  • Cell Walls –a hard outer shell that also provides structure for the cell – it’s a carbohydrate that we call fiber

  • Lysosomes – involved in cellular digestion – they contain enzymes which break down wastes and cellular debris

  • Centrioles – Involved in cellular reproduction.
