  1. CELLS • All organisms are made up of cells • The cell is the unit of structure and function of all living things • Life arises from the interaction of all cellular components.

  2. You must check this web site •

  3. There is correlation between the structure of cells and their function Ex: The shapes of muscles cells, sperm cells, red blood cells,, nerve cells are appropriate for their function. Example: the flat tile like epithelial cells of the skin fit closely together making a barrier to bacterial entrance, water loss etc. Another way to say this is that “shape reflects function”

Most cells are microscopic • Cells vary in size and shape

  5. History • Robert Hook (1665) named “cells” after observing tiny compartments in cork . • Anton VanLeeuwenhoek (1600’s) improved the primitive microscopes and observed one celled organisms, even bacteria. He documented his findings with letters and diagrams to the Royal Society (of Science) in London. • Robert Brown (1600’s)discovered the nucleus • Electron microscope was developed in the late 1930’s and allows scientist to see up to 0.5 nanometers. About 1000 times larger than regular microscopes.

  6. Eyepiece Ocularlens Objective lens Specimen Condenserlens Lightsource How are cells studied? Microscopes and Biochemistry • The light microscope (LM) magnify cells up to 1000 times • Enables us to see the overall shape and structure of a cell Figure 4.1A

  8. The cell theory (mid-1800’s) • Mathew Schleiden and Theodor Schwann examined plant and animal tissues and came to the conclusion that they both consist of cells • Rudolph Virchow came to the conclusion that young cells come from the division of other cells •  1.    All organisms are made up of cells • 2.    Cells are the units of structure and function of all living things, that is cells have all the properties of life. • 3.    All cells come from pre-existing cells

  9. Prokaryotic cell Nucleoidregion Colorized TEM 15,000  Nucleus Eukaryotic cell Organelles • Prokaryotic cells are structurally simpler than • eukaryotic cells • There are two kinds of cells • Prokaryotic- No nucleus- Bacteria and Archeae • Eukaryotic- have nucleus- plants, animals and fungi Figure 4.3A

  10. Prokaryoticflagella Ribosomes Capsule Cell wall Plasmamembrane Nucleoid region (DNA) Pili • TYPE OF CELLS: Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic • Prokaryotic cells are small, relatively simple cells • That do not have a membrane-bound nucleus

  11. Eukaryotic cells have a nucleus and are partitioned into functional compartments. • All other forms of life( plants and animals) are composed of complex eukaryotic cells • Membranes form compartments inside eukaryotic cells to facilitate metabolic activities

  15. Functions of the cytoskeleton • Tubules and filaments are made up of protein fibers • Microfilaments of actin • Enable cells to change shape and move • Intermediate filaments • Reinforce the cell and anchor organelles • Microtubules give the cell rigidity • provide anchors for organelles and act as tracks for organelle movement

  16. Overview: Many cell organelles are connected through the endomembrane system

  17. All cells on earth are enclosed in membranes that maintain internal conditions different from the surroundings, have DNA as their genetic material and can convert forms of energy from one to another. • Membranes form the boundaries of many eukaryotic cells • Compartmentalizing the interior of the cell and facilitating a variety of metabolic activities

Rough ER 1 Transport vesicle(containing inactivehydrolytic enzymes) Golgiapparatus Plasmamembrane Lysosomeengulfingdamagedorganelle 2 Engulfmentof particle Lysosomes 3 5 4 Foodvacuole Digestion Lysosomes are digestive compartments within a cell • Lysosomes are sacs of enzymes that function in digestion within a cell “Food”

  28. Lysosome Nucleus TEM 8,500 • Lysosomes in white blood cells • Destroy bacteria that have been ingested • lysosomes also help to digest worn out , damaged cell parts, recycle materials within the cell and fuse with food vacuoles to digest nutrients. Figure 4.10B

  29. Lysosomes in white blood cells destroy bacteria and lysosomes also can digest other parts of the cell Abnormal lysosomes can cause fatal diseases • Lysosomal storage diseases. These are rare. • Interfere with various cellular functions • Ex: Tay- Sachs, does not break down lipids in nerve cell membranes. Lipids accumulate • Pompe’s disease, lysosomes cannot digest glycogen and it accumulates in muscle and liver cells

  30. Peroxisomes • Specialized vesicles that contains enzymes (catalase) that digest hydrogen peroxide H2O2 • Our cells produce hydrogen peroxide during metabolism and the enzymes in peroxisomes break it down into water and oxygen gas which are harmless to the cell.

  39. ORGANELLES NAME LOCATION FUNCTION • Lysosomes cytoplasm Digestion and breaking down of materials (only in animal cells) ( including the cell’s own) • Peroxisomes cytoplasm Sacs of enzymes that break down substances (alcohol, amino acids) into hydrogen peroxide and then the hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen. • Plasma Membrane all around the cell Controls substances and signals that go in and out of cells. Maintains shape and volume • Cell wall ( plant cells) cytoplasm Keeps water inside and limits water uptake, protects from outside influences, maintains shape.

  40. ORGANELLES NAME LOCATION FUNCTION • Central vacuoles center of plant cell water maintenance, stores waste (plant cells only) • Plastids cytoplasm plastids provide nutrients and (plant cells only) pigmentation • Chloroplast many throughout carry out photosynthesis (plant cells only) the cytoplasm contain chlorophyll

  41. CELL JUNCTIONS • What are junctions? Protein or cytoplasmic bridges that serve as physical links between cells. • The junctions between cells help integrate cells into tissues and higher levels of functioning. Junctions make cells living units greater than each individual part. • Junctions serve to send and receive signals and materials and to cement itself to other cells and junctions coordinate cell activities.

  42. Plant cells Plants are covered by cell walls composed of cellulose fibers. Cell walls have plasmodesmata, these are channels that pass through adjoining cell walls connecting plant cell to plant cell.

  43. Animal cells:Junctions • There are different kinds of intracellular junctions between animal cells, integrating each cell into a greater unit. • Tight junctions • Desmosomes or Anchoring juctions: • Gap or Communication junctions:

  44. Tight junctions They fuse cell to cell to prevent leakage. Ex: cells of the lining of the intestines keeping the fluid inside. All cells of most tissues are joined this way. The skin and the lining of internal cavities (epithelial).

  45. Gap or Communication junctions: Link the cytoplasm of neighboring cells. They are open channels that allow a flow of materials and signals between cells. • Very common in embryos and in heart tissue to allow for the passage of ions to cause contraction

  46. Desmosomes or Anchoring juctions: Joins cells in tissues of the skin, heart and other organs such as the bladder subject to stretching.

  47. Tight junctions Anchoring junction Gap junctions Extracellular matrix Space between cells Plasma membranes of adjacent cells • Tight junctions can bind cells together into leakproof sheets • Anchoring junctions link animal cells into strong tissues • Gap junctions allow substances to flow from cell to cell Figure 4.18B
