Prokaryotic cells

Some prokaryotes have rotating flagella for movement.

Pili are projections by which prokaryotic cells attach to one another or to environmental surfaces.

Organelles that process energy1

Organelles that Process Energy

  • The endosymbiont theory of the evolutionary origin of mitochondria and chloroplasts

    • originated when large prokaryotes engulfed, but did not digest, smaller ones.

  • Vacuoles

    • a membrane-enclosed compartment of water and dissolved substances.

    • They take in water and enlarge, providing pressure to stretch the cell wall and structural support for a plant.

The cytoskeleton

The Cytoskeleton

  • The cytoskeleton within the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells provides shape, strength, and movement. It consists of three major types of protein fibers.

The cytoskeleton actin cytoskeleton

The Cytoskeleton – Actin cytoskeleton

  • Microfilaments consist of two chains of actin units forming a double helix.

  • Microfilaments strengthen cellular structures and provide movement in animal cell division, cytoplasmic streaming, and pseudopod extension.

  • They occur as individual, bundled, or networked fibers.

The cytoskeleton1

The Cytoskeleton

  • Intermediate filaments are formed of keratins and add strength to cell attachments in multicellular organisms.

The cytoskeleton microtubules

The Cytoskeleton - Microtubules

  • Chains of dimers of the protein tubulin,

  • Cilia and flagella both have a characteristic 9 + 2 pattern of microtubules.

The cytoskeleton microtubules1

The Cytoskeleton - Microtubules

  • Movements of cilia and flagella are due to binding of the motor protein dynein to microtubules. Microtubules also bind motor proteins that move organelles through the cell.

  • Centrioles, made up of triplets of microtubules, are involved in the distribution of chromosomes during nuclear division.

Extracellular structures

Extracellular Structures

  • Materials external to the plasma membrane provide protection, support, and attachment for cells in multicellular systems.

  • Cell walls of plants consist principally of cellulose. They are pierced by plasmodesmata that join the cytoplasm of adjacent cells

  • In multicellular animals, the extracellular matrix consists of different proteins many of which are proteoglycans.

    • Collagen - bone and cartilage

    • Fibronectin – basal membranes of epithelia

    • Laminin

Chapter 5 cellular membranes

CHAPTER 5Cellular Membranes

Membrane composition and structure

Biological membranes consist of lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates.

fluid mosaic model describes a phospholipid bilayer in which membrane proteins move laterally within the membrane.

Membrane Composition and Structure

Lipid bilayer structure

Lipid Bilayer Structure

Membrane composition and structure1

Membrane Composition and Structure

  • Membrane Proteins

  • Integral membrane proteins are inserted into the phospholipid bilayer.

  • Peripheral proteins attach to its surface by ionic bonds, H-bonds, and/or polar interactions.

Membrane composition and structure2

Membrane Composition and Structure

  • The two surfaces of a membrane can have different properties due to different phospholipid compositions, exposed domains of integral membrane proteins, and peripheral membrane proteins.

  • Defined regions (rafts) of a plasma membrane may have different membrane proteins.

  • Proteins projecting from the external surface of the plasma membrane function in communication & recognition signals between cells.

Cell adhesion

Cell Adhesion

  • Cells recognize and bind to each other by means of membrane proteins protruding from the cell surface.

Cell adhesion categories of adhesive junctions

Cell Adhesion - Categories of Adhesive Junctions

  • Tight junctions

    • prevent passage of molecules around cells

    • define functional regions of the plasma membrane

      • ZO-1, actin cytoskeleton

  • Desmosomes

    • Allow strong adhesion between cells

      • Desmin, intermediate filaments

  • Adherins Junctions

    • Allow strong, but reversible adhesion between cells of the same type

      • Cadherin, catenins, actin cytoskeleton

  • Focal Adhesions

    • Allow temporary attachment to ECM for motility

      • Integrins, actin cytoskeleton

Transmembrane movement of substances

Transmembrane Movement of Substances

Passive processes of membrane transport

Passive Processes of Membrane Transport

  • Two types of passive movement

    • unaided diffusion through the lipid bilayer,

    • facilitated diffusion through protein channels, or by means of a carrier protein

  • Solutes diffuse across a membrane from a region of greater solute concentration to a region of lesser concentration. Equilibrium is when the concentrations are equal

  • The rate of diffusion of a solute across a membrane is directly proportional to the concentration gradient across the membrane.

  • For unaided diffusion to occur requires lipid solubility

Passive processes of membrane transport1

Passive Processes of Membrane Transport

  • Osmosis

    • Diffusion of water

  • Osmosis occurs when the solutes on either side of a membrane can not pass through the membrane

  • H2O is slightly lipid soluble

  • H2O passes through membrane toward equilibrium

Passive processes of membrane transport2

Passive Processes of Membrane Transport

  • Tonicity

    • Relative concentrations of two solutions

    • Hypo – lower [solute] relative to some solution

    • Hyper – higher [solute] relative to some solution

    • Iso – equal [solute] relative to some solution

  • Often tonicity of solution is relative to tonicity of cell

  • For a cell:

    • hypotonic solutions - cells tend to take up water

    • hypertonic solutions – cells tend to lose water

    • isotonic equal rate of water movement (dynamic equilibrium)

Passive processes of membrane transport3

Passive Processes of Membrane Transport

  • The cell walls of plants and some other organisms prevent cells from bursting under hypotonic conditions. Turgor pressure develops under these conditions and keeps plants upright and stretches the cell wall during cell growth.

Passive processes of membrane transport4

Passive Processes of Membrane Transport

  • Channel proteins

Passive processes of membrane transport5

Passive Processes of Membrane Transport

figure 05-10.jpg

  • Carrier proteins

Active transport

Active Transport

  • Active transport means that energy is required to move substances across a membrane

  • Any movement against a concentration gradient will require active transport

  • Energy sources

    • ATP

    • Counter gradient

Active transport1

Active Transport

  • Active transport requires integral membrane proteins

  • Active transport proteins

    • uniports,

    • symports,

    • antiports

Primary active transport

Primary Active Transport

  • Energy from the hydrolysis of ATP

  • Binding of ATP alters protein configuration allowing binding to substrate on one side of membrane

  • Hydrolysis of ATP is possible after substrate bound

  • Hydrolysis of ATP alters configuration of protein to release substrate on opposite side of membrane

Secondary active transport

Secondary Active Transport

  • Couples the passive movement of one solute down its concentration gradient to the movement of another solute up its concentration gradient.

  • Energy from ATP is used indirectly to establish the concentration gradient of the counter gradient resulting in movement of the first solute.

Endocytosis and exocytosis

Endocytosis and Exocytosis

  • Endocytosis

    • transports macromolecules, large particles, and small cells into eukaryotic cells by means of engulfment and vesicle formation from the plasma membrane.

  • Exocytosis

    • materials in vesicles are secreted from the cell when vesicles fuse with the plasma membrane.

    • In receptor-mediated endocytosis, a specific membrane receptor binds to a particular macromolecule

Other membranes functions

Other Membranes Functions

  • Sites for recognition and processing of extracellular signals,

  • Sites for energy transformations,

  • Sites for organizing chemical reactions.

Membranes are dynamic

Membranes Are Dynamic

  • Although not all cellular membranes are identical, ordered modifications in membrane composition accompany the conversions of one type of membrane into another type.
