  1. Chapter 7: Cell Structure and Function

  2. Microscopes

  3. History • 1400’s: magnifying glass • 1590: Jansen Bro • Used 1st compound microscope (2 lenses) • 1670-80’s: Anton van Leeuwenhoek • Used a simple light microscope (1 lens) • 1st person to observe living microorganisms • Father of Microbiology

  4. Terms: • Magnification: enlarges an object’s image • Resolution: increases visible detail • Separation of 2 points

  5. Light Microscopes • uses light • Simple (1 lens) • Compound (2 or more lenses) • 1 ocular eyepiece • 1 objective eyepiece • Stereomicroscope • Gives a 3-D image • Fluorescent dyes combine with video camera to produce 3-D image of cell processes (ex: cell movement)

  6. Total Magnification • ocular lens x objective lens • Examples: 100 = (10x) x (10x) 430 = (10x) x (43x) • Highest magnification with a light microscope is 1500x

  7. Electron Microscopes • uses beams of electrons • Transmission electron microscope (TEM) • Transmits electrons through a specimen up to 200,000x • Can study structures within a cell

  8. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) • Sends electrons across the surface of a specimen to make a 3-D image up to 100,000x

  9. Scanning tunneling microscope (STM) • Uses a metal probe to show the arrangement of atoms (1,000,000x) • Investigates atoms on the surface of a molecule

  10. Advantages/Disadvantages of each microscope: • Light Microscope: • Advantages: can look at living specimens • Disadvantages: limited in magnification and resolution • Electron Microscope: • Advantages: greater magnification and resolution • Disadvantages: cannot view living things

  12. Cells

  13. Robert Hooke • Studied cork (dead plant cells from the bark of a tree) • First identified cells (basic building blocks of all living things)

  14. Matthias Schleiden and Theodor Schwann • Schleiden plants are made up of cells • Schwannanimals are made up of cells

  15. Cell Theory • 3 parts to the cell theory- applies to all living organisms • all organisms are composed of 1 or more cells • the cell is the basic unit of structure and function (organization) of all living things • all cells come from pre-existing cells

  16. Cells • Basic units of all living things • Surrounded by a plasma membrane • Have DNA (contains genetic information) • Have cytoplasm (outside the nucleus) • Contain organelles • membrane-bound structures • small, specialized structures • each has a specific function that helps cells survive • 2 groups of cells

  17. Prokaryotes • Smaller in size • Do not have membrane-bound organelles • Have genetic material (DNA) but not surrounded by a membrane • Circular DNA floats in cytoplasm • Unicellular organisms (bacteria) • ****No nucleus or nuclear membrane*** • have ribosomes, cytoplasm, and cell membrane

  18. Eukaryotes • Contain membrane-bound organelles • Multicellular organisms and some unicellular (amoeba, algae, and yeast) • Contain a nucleus • Control center of the cell • Contains a cell’s genetic material • Responsible for cell division • Manages all cellular functions • Identified by Rudolf Virchow • Protists, fungi, plants, and animals • Bigger in size than prokaryotes

  19. Cell Types Venn Diagram Eukaryotes Prokaryotes

  20. Bell Ringer: • Cell Theory: • All __________ are composed of cells. • Cells are the basic units of _______ and ________ in all organisms. • New cells are produced from ____________. 2. The cells of eukaryotes have a _________; the cells of __________ do not. 3. Eukaryotic cells also have a variety of specialized structure called ______________.

  21. Levels of Organization • Cells in multicellular organisms are specialized (cell specialization) • Perform specific functions (separate roles) • Ex: nerve cells  transmit impulses • Ex: red blood cells  carry nutrients and gas throughout body • Ex: pancreatic cell  produce insulin • Ex: muscle cells  contract and relax to move parts of the body

  22. organism organ systems organization organs • Cells: basic units • Ex: red blood cells, nerve cells, pancreatic cells, skin cells • Tissues: group of cells that perform a particular function • Ex: muscle tissue, epithelial tissue • Organs: group of tissues that work together • Ex: heart, liver, stomach, brain, lungs • Organ systems: group of organs that work together to perform a specific function • Ex: digestive, respiratory, nervous tissues cells

  23. Organelle DNA • Chloroplasts and mitochondria have their own DNA • Lynn Margulis • Came up with the endosymbiotic theory • Suggested that mitochondria and chloroplasts came from prokaryotic cells • Formed a relationship with early eukaryotic cells

  24. Cell Wall Function: • Provides additional support and protection • Allows H2O, O2, AND CO2 to pass Type of Cell: • Plant cells, fungal cells, and bacterial cells

  25. Nickname: “support center” Cell Wall Unique Characteristics: • Rigid structure • Inflexible • Made of cellulose (in plants)

  32. Mitochondria Function: • Transforms energy into usable compounds by breaking down food • Cellular respiration Type of Cell: • Plant and animal cells

  33. Mitochondria Unique Characteristics: • Has double membrane • Folded inner membrane  increases surface area • Occurs in varying #’s • Example: more in muscle cells • Nickname: “Powerhouse” or “Mighty-chondria”

  34. Chloroplast Function: • Captures light energy and makes food • Photosynthesis Type of Cell: • Plant cells only

  35. Chloroplast Unique Characteristics: • Double membrane • Plastids used for storage • Contain chlorophyll • Green pigment • Nickname: “Green sugar shack”
