  • 1. Topic 2 Cells
  • 2. Cell theory
    • All living things are made up of cells
    • Cells are the smallest unit of life
    • All cells come from other cells
  • 3. What is the evidence for the cell theory ?
    • All living things are made up of cells
    • All 5 kingdoms of life are made up of cells
    • Some organisms are only one-celled, unicellular
    • We can observe cells under the microscope
  • 4. What is the evidence for the cell theory ?
    • Tissues are made up of individual cells that can be isolated
    • Cells can live in vitro but organelles can’t.
    • Cells are the smallest unit of life
  • 5. What is the evidence for the cell theory ?
    • Mitosis and meiosis have been observed many times in many different organisms
    • Mixing the components of cells together has never resulted in the formation of a cell
    • Cells arise from other cells
  • 6. Exceptions to the rule
    • Muscle cells- have lost the membrane between them and so are long cells with many nuclei
    • Fungi cells- also very long and multi-nucleated
  • 7. More exceptions…..
    • Virus is non cellular, just some DNA or RNA surrounded by a protein coat…there is debate about whether it is alive or not.
    • Mitochondria and chloroplasts have their own DNA and can replicate themselves but they are organelles not cells. They are believed to have once been free living prokaryotic cells that formed a symbiotic relationship with a eukaryotic cell.
  • 8. Unicellular organisms
    • Some organisms like many protista and all prokaryotes are only one cell big but they are able to carry out all the functions of life.
    • a. metabolism which includes respiration the synthesis of ATP.
    • b. response to a change in the environment
    • c. homeostasis the maintenance and regulation of internal cell conditions.
    • d. growth which for a unicellular organism means an increase in cell size and volume.
    • e. reproduction which for the unicellular organism is largely asexual through cell division to form a clone.
    • f. nutrition which means either the synthesis of organic molecules or the absorption of organic matter.
  • 9.  
  • 10. Amoeba on the move!
  • 11. Diatoms
  • 12. Multicellular cells show emergent properties Emergent properties are ones that come about when individual parts of a system interact with each other. On their own, the individual parts cannot do what they can do together. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. A cell can do much more than the individual parts or organelles can do. A protein can do more than the amino acids that its made up of.
  • 13. Think of these 3 parts: 1. A small metal cup 2. A glass bowl 3. A piece of tugnsten wire Individually they have no function, but when they are together:
  • 14.
    • Relative sizes:
    • Molecules (1nm)
    • Cell membrane thickness (10nm)
    • Virus (100nm)
    • Bacteria (1µm)
    • Organelles (less than 10µm)
    • Cells (less than 100µm)
    • Generally plant cells are larger than animal cells
  • 15.
    • Why do cells not grow to larger sizes?
    • Answer!
    • Surface-area to Volume Ratio!
    • Rate of heat and waste production and rate of resource consumption are functions that depend on its volume
    • Most chemical reactions takes place inside the cell and its size affects the rate of these reactions
    • The rate of exchange of substances therefore depends on the organisms surface area that is in contact with the surroundings
    • As the organism gets bigger, their volume and surface area both get bigger, but not by the same amount
  • 16. Conclusion Large organisms, the rate of exchange of substances with their surroundings occurs more slowly Cell radius (r) 0.25 units 0.5 units 1.25 units Surface area 0.79 units 3.14 units 7.07 units Volume 0.06 units 0.52 units 1.77 units SA: Volume 13.17:1 6.04:1 3.99:1
  • 17. Benefits of Light Microscope Benefits of Electron Microscope
    • Can see things in colour
    • Can look at live organisms
    • Much cheaper to buy & easy to operate
    • Greater magnification
    • Great resolution
  • 18. Comparisons of microscopes: Light microscope is more limited by its resolving power but allows observation of living organisms, movement and processes Transmission electron microscope is used to study the internal structure of the cell Scanning electron microscope is used to study the surface of a sample
  • 19. Looking at cells: the microscope
    • Two factors when evaluating a microscope:
    • Resolving power : a measure of the clarity of the image, the minimum distance two points can be and still be seen as two separate points
    2. Magnification : how much bigger the image is, the ratio between the actual size and the image. The limiting factor for a microscope is the resolving power. For light microscopes the shortest wavelength of light enables discrimination of 0.2 microns, the size of a bacteria, magnification is limited to 1000X Electron microscopes use electrons and so their resolving power is 0.1 nanometers
  • 20. Units of size
  • 21. Calculating magnification
    • When you see an image like the ones on the last slide of cells (called a micrograph) they appear bigger than they actually are because they are magnified
    • You need to know how to calculate the magnification and the actual size of the specimen from a micrograph
    • Magnification=size of image/size of specimen
    • Size of specimen= size of image/magnification
  • 22.
    • Example:
    • Use the scale bar on the micrograph. 1um measures 9mm
    • Convert the 2 measurements to the same units
    • There are 1000um in 1mm, so 9mm= 9000um
    • Plug into the formula:
    • M= image size/specimen size
    • 9000/1=9000X
  • 23.
    • To determine the actual size of something on the micrograph:
    • Measure it-example the mitochondria is 11mm and then use the formula:
    • Size=image/magnification
    • 11,000um/9000=1.2 um
    • Is this a reasonable size for an organelle?
  • 24. Estimating with help
    • You can also estimate the size of a cell or organelle by using a very small ruler that is etched into a microscope slide, called a micrometer.
    • You can measure the size of the field of view under different magnifications and use this to estimate the size of something under the microscope.
  • 25. Virtual Microscope Lab!
  • 26. Practice with the microscope
    • First go through the virtual microscope tour. We do not have binocular microscopes, or light rheostat, otherwise same. Follow directions- you will get a green check when you have done the task successfully. View an image under 3 powers, adjusting light and focus.
    • Then do the activity
  • 27. Cell differentiation
    • All multicelluar organisms start out from one cell.
    • All cells in an organism (except gametes) have the exact same genetic information which guides all the structure and functions of the organism.
    • How how is it that a skin cell looks totally different than a nerve cell and that they do completely different things?
  • 28. Cell differentiation
    • This quality of cells in different tissues having different structure and function is the result of cell differentiation.
    • This difference is not due to a difference in the DNA or genes but in how the genes are controlled or expressed.
    • Once a cell has developed into a certain kind of cell it cannot be reprogrammed to become another kind of cell.
  • 29. Stem cells
    • Stems cells are unspecialized cells. They can reproduce indefinitely and have the capability of differentiation.
    • They have the ability to become any kind of cell. This is called totiopotency. Cells that can become almost any kind of cell are called pluripotent.
    • Human embryo is made up of stem cells up about 5 days old- called the blastula stage.
    • These cells can be made to differentiate into almost any cell type. This is why they are the focus of so much research.
    • Adults also have stem cells- these can’t make any kind of cell but they can make many different kinds. Ex: bone marrow stem cells can make all the different kinds blood cells as well as bone and muscle cells.
  • 30. Embryonic stem cells/adult stem cells
  • 31.  
  • 32. Uses of stem cells
    • Tissue repair
    • Treatment of disease- Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, leukemia
    • Possible growth of organs
  • 33. Why are cells small?
    • As the size of a sphere increases, the volume increases more than the surface area.
    • The surface area to volume ratio is important because materials must enter and leave the cell through the cell membrane. If the volume of the cell gets too big, the surface area can’t keep up with exchange of materials needed to support the metabolic activities of the cell.
    So cells maintain a high surface area-to-volume ratio
  • 34. Two kinds of cells: prokaryotic and eukaryotic Prokaryotic Small- 1 micron Lack nucleus and intermembranous systems Have cell wall DNA: one main circular chromosome and additional DNA in plasmid
  • 35. Two kinds of cells: prokaryotic and eukaryotic Prokaryotic Eukaryotic Small- 1 micron Larger-10-100 microns Lack nucleus and intermembranous systems Organelles bound by membranes Have cell wall May have cell wall DNA: one main circular chromosome and additional DNA in plasmid DNA: in the nucleus, double stranded, no plasmid
