  • 1.
    • The Cellular Level of
    • Organization
    • Lecture Outline
    • Plasma (cell)
    • membrane
    • Cytoplasm
    • Nucleus
    • Cell and Aging
  • 2. INTRODUCTION
    • A cell is the basic, living, structural, and functional unit of the body.
    • Cytology is the study of cell structure, and cell physiology is the study of cell function.
    • The cell can be divided into three principal parts for ease of study.
      • Plasma (cell) membrane
      • Cytoplasm
        • Cytosol
        • Organelles (except for the nucleus)
      • Nucleus
  • 3. THE PLASMA MEMBRANE
    • The plasma membrane is a flexible, sturdy barrier that surrounds and contains the cytoplasm of the cell.
    • The fluid mosaic model describes its structure (Figure 3.2).
      • The membrane consists of proteins in a sea of lipids.
    • Flexible but sturdy barrier that surround cytoplasm of cell
    • Fluid mosaic model describes its structure
      • membrane is 50 % lipid & 50 % protein
        • held together by hydrogen bonds
      • lipid is barrier to entry or exit of polar substances
      • proteins are “gatekeepers” -- regulate traffic
  • 4. the Cell Membrane -Phospholipids - Cholesterol -Glycolipids - Integral Proteins -Peripheral Proteins
  • 5. Functions of Membrane Proteins
    • Formation of Channel
      • passageway to allow specific substance to pass through
    • Transporter Proteins
      • bind a specific substance, change their shape & move it across membrane
    • Receptor Proteins
      • cellular recognition site -- bind to substance
  • 6. Functions of Membrane Proteins
    • Act as Enzyme
      • speed up reactions
    • Linker
      • anchor proteins in cell membrane or to other cells
      • allow cell movement
      • cell shape & structure
    • Cell Identity Marker
      • allow cell to recognize other similar cells
  • 7. Membrane Permeability
    • Plasma membranes are selectively permeable.
      • Some things can pass through and others cannot.
    • The lipid bilayer portion of the membrane is permeable to small, nonpolar, uncharged molecules but impermeable to ions and charged or polar molecules.
    • The membrane is also permeable to water.
    • Transmembrane proteins that act as channels or transporters increase the permeability of the membrane to molecules that cannot cross the lipid bilayer.
    • Macromolecules are unable to pass through the plasma membrane except by vesicular transport.
  • 8. Gradients Across the Plasma Membrane
    • A concentration gradient
      • the difference in the concentration of a chemical between one side of the plasma membrane and the other.
    • Electrical gradient
      • Oxygen and sodium ions are more concentrated outside the cell membrane with carbon dioxide and potassium ions more concentrated inside the cell membrane (Figure 3.4a).
  • 9. TRANSPORT ACROSS THE PLASMA MEMBRANE
    • Processes to move substances across the cell membrane are essential to the life of the cell.
    • Some substances cross the lipid bilayer while others cross through ion channels.
    • Transport processes that mover substances across the cell membrane are either active or passive.
    • Three types of passive processes are
      • diffusion through the lipid bilayer
      • diffusion through ion channels
      • facilitated diffusion
    • Active transport requires cellular energy.
    • Materials can also enter or leave the cell through vesicle transport.
  • 10. Diffusion
    • Diffusion is the random mixing of particles that occurs in a solution as a result of the kinetic energy of the particles. (Figure 3.6)
    • Nonpolar, hydrophobic molecules such as respiratory gases, some lipids, small alcohols, and ammonia can diffuse across the lipid bilayer.
    • It is important for gas exchange, absorption of some nutrients, and excretion of some wastes.
  • 11. Osmosis
    • Osmosis is the net movement of a solvent through a selectively permeable membrane, or in living systems, the movement of water (the solute) from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration across the membrane (Figure 3.7).
    • Water molecules penetrate the membrane by diffusion through the lipid bilayer or through aquaporins, transmembrane proteins that function as water channels.
    • Water moves from an area of lower solute concentration to an area of higher solute concentration.
    • Osmosis occurs only when the membrane is permeable to water but not to certain solutes.
  • 12. Active Transport
    • Active transport is an energy-requiring process that moves solutes such as ions, amino acids, and monosaccharides against a concentration gradient.
  • 13. Endocytosis
    • In endocytosis , materials move into a cell in a vesicle formed from the plasma membrane.
    • Receptor-mediated endocytosis is the selective uptake of large molecules and particles by cells (Figure 3.12).
  • 14. Endocytosis
    • Endocytosis = bringing something into cell
      • phagocytosis = cell eating by macrophages & WBCs
        • particle binds to receptor protein
        • whole bacteria or viruses are engulfed & later digested
      • pinocytosis = cell drinking
        • no receptor proteins
    • The steps of receptor-mediated endocytosis includes binding, vesicle formation, uncoating, fusion with endosome , recycling of receptors, and degradation in lysosomes..
    • Viruses can take advantage of this mechanism to enter cells.
    • Phagocytosis is the ingestion of solid particles (Figure 3.13).
    • Pinocytosis is the ingestion of extracellular fluid (Figure 3.14).
  • 15. Pinocytosis and Phagocytosis
    • Pseudopods extend to form phagosome
    • Lysosome joins it
    • No pseudopods form
    • Nonselective drinking of extracellular fluid
  • 16. Exocytosis
    • Exocytosis = release something from cell
        • Vesicles form inside cell, fuse to cell membrane
        • Release their contents
          • digestive enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters or waste products
        • replace cell membrane lost by endocytosis
    • In exocytosis, membrane-enclosed structures called secretory vesicles that form inside the cell fuse with the plasma membrane and release their contents into the extracellular fluid.
    • Transcytosis may be used to move a substance into, across and out of a cell.
  • 17. CYTOPLASM
    • Cytosol , the intracellular fluid, is the semifluid portion of cytoplasm that contains inclusions and dissolved solutes (Figure 3.1).
    • Cytosol is composed mostly of water, plus proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and inorganic substances.
    • The chemicals in cytosol are either in solution or in a colloidal (suspended) form.
    • Functionally, cytosol is the medium in which many metabolic reactions occur.
  • 18. Organelles
    • Organelles are specialized structures that have characteristic shapes and perform specific functions in cellular growth, maintenance, and reproduction.
  • 19. Cytoskeleton
    • Network of protein filaments throughout the cytosol
    • Functions
      • cell support and shape
      • organization of chemical reactions
      • cell & organelle movement
    • Continually reorganized
  • 20. Microfilaments
    • Most microfilaments are composed of actin and function in movement and mechanical support
    • Intermediate filaments are composed of several different proteins and function in support and to help anchor organelles such as the nucleus
    • Microtubules are composed of a protein called tubulin and help determine cell shape and function in the intracellular transport of organelles and the migration of chromosome during cell division.
  • 21. Centrosomes
    • Centrosomes are dense areas of cytoplasm containing the centrioles , which are paired cylinders arranged at right angles to one another, and serve as centers for organizing microtubules in interphase cells and the mitotic spindle during cell division. (Figure 3.16a – 3.16c)
  • 22. Cilia and Flagella
    • Cilia are numerous, short, hair-like projections extending from the surface of a cell and functioning to move materials across the surface of the cell (Figure. 3.17a – 3.17b).
    • Flagella are similar to cilia but are much longer; usually moving an entire cell. The only example of a flagellum in the human body is the sperm cell tail (Figure 3.17c).
  • 23. Ribosomes
    • Ribosomes are tiny spheres consisting of ribosomal RNA and several ribosomal proteins; they occur free (singly or in clusters) or together with endoplasmic reticulum (Fig 3.18).
    • Functionally, ribosomes are the sites of protein synthesis.
    • Composed of Ribosomal RNA & protein
    • Free ribosomes are loose in cytosol
      • synthesize proteins found inside the cell
    • Membrane-bound ribosomes
      • attached to endoplasmic reticulum or nuclear membrane
      • synthesize proteins needed for plasma membrane or for export
      • 10 to 20 together form a polyribosome
    • Inside mitochondria, ribosomes synthesize mitochondrial proteins
  • 24. Ribosomal Subunits
    • Large + small subunits
      • made in the nucleolus
      • assembled in the cytoplasm
  • 25. Endoplasmic Reticulum
    • The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a network of membranes that form flattened sacs or tubules called cisterns (Figure 3.19).
    • Rough ER is continuous with the nuclear membrane and has its outer surface studded with ribosomes.
    • Smooth ER extends from the rough ER to form a network of membrane tubules but does not contain ribosomes on its membrane surface.
    • The ER transports substances, stores newly synthesized molecules, synthesizes and packages molecules, detoxifies chemicals, and releases calcium ions involved in muscle contraction
  • 26.
    • The Golgi complex consists of three to twenty stacked, flattened membranous sacs (cisterns) referred to as cis, medial, and trans (Figure 3.20).
    • The principal function of the Golgi complex is to process, sort, and deliver proteins and lipids to the plasma membrane, lysosomes, and secretory vesicles
    Golgi Complex
  • 27. Lysosomes
    • membrane-enclosed vesicles that contain powerful digestive enzymes (Figure 3.22).
      • internal pH reaches 5.0
    • Functions
      • digest foreign substances
      • autophagy (autophagosome forms)
        • recycles own organelles
      • autolysis
        • lysosomal damage after death
  • 28. Perioxosomes
    • Peroxisomes are similar in structure to lysosomes, but are smaller.
    • They contain enzymes (e.g., catalase) that use molecular oxygen to oxidize various organic substances.
      • part of normal metabolic breakdown of amino acids and fatty acids
      • oxidizes toxic substances such as alcohol and formaldehyde
      • contains catalase which decomposes H2O2
  • 29. Mitochondria
    • The mitochondrion is bound by a double membrane.
    • The outer membrane is smooth with the inner membrane arranged in folds called cristae
    • Mitochondria are the site of ATP production in the cell by the catabolism of nutrient molecules.
    • Mitochondria self-replicate using their own DNA.
    • Mitochondrial DNA (genes) are usually inherited only from the mother.
  • 30. NUCLEUS
    • The nucleus is usually the most prominent feature of a cell
    • Most body cells have a single nucleus; some (red blood cells) have none, whereas others (skeletal muscle fibers) have several.
    • The parts of the nucleus include the nuclear envelope which is perforated by channels called nuclear pores, nucleoli, and genetic material (DNA),
    • Within the nucleus are the cell’s
    • hereditary units, called genes ,
    • which are arranged in single file
    • along chromosomes.
  • 31. Function of the Nucleus
    • 46 human DNA molecules or chromosomes
      • genes found on chromosomes
      • gene is directions for a specific protein
    • Non-dividing cells contain nuclear chromatin
      • loosely packed DNA
    • Dividing cells contain chromosomes
      • tightly packed DNA
      • it doubled (copied itself) before condensing
  • 32. Chromosomes
    • Each chromosome is a long molecule of DNA that is coiled together with several proteins (Figure 3.25).
    • Human somatic cells have 46 chromosomes arranged in 23 pairs.
    • The various levels of DNA packing are represented by nucleosomes, chromatin fibers, loops, chromatids, and chromosomes.
  • 33. PROTEIN SYNTHESIS
    • Much of the cellular machinery is devoted to synthesizing large numbers of diverse proeins.
    • The proteins determine the physical and chemical characteristics of cells.
    • The instructions for protein synthesis is found in the DNA in the nucleus.
    • Protein synthesis involves transcription and translation (Figure 3.26).
  • 34.  
  • 35. CELL DIVISION
    • Cell division is the process by which cells reproduce themselves. It consists of nuclear division (mitosis and meiosis) and cytoplasmic division ( cytokinesis ).
    • Cell division that results in an increase in body cells is called somatic cell division and involves a nuclear division called mitosis , plus cytokinesis.
    • Cell division that results in the production of sperm and eggs is called reproductive cell division and consists of a nuclear division called meiosis plus cytokinesis.
  • 36. Control of Cell Destiny
    • The three possible destinies of a cell are to remain alive and functioning without dividing, to grow and divide, or to die.
    • Maturation promoting factor (MPF) induces cell division.
    • Cell death, a process called apoptosis , is triggered either from outside the cell or from inside the cell due to a “cell-suicide” gene.
    • Necrosis is a pathological cell death due to injury.
    • Tumor -suppressor genes can produce proteins that normally inhibit cell division resulting in the uncontrollable cell growth known as cancer.
  • 37. CELLULAR DIVERSITY
    • Not all cells look alike, nor do they perform identical functional roles in the body.
    • The cells vary considerably
      • 100 trillion cells in the body -- 200 different types
      • Vary in size and shape related to their function (Figure 3.35).
  • 38. CELLS AND AGING
    • Aging is a normal process accompanied by a progressive alteration of the body’s homeostatic adaptive responses;
    • The physiological signs of aging are gradual deterioration in function and capacity to respond to environmental stresses.
    • These signs are related to a net decrease in the number of cells in the body and to the dysfunctioning of the cells that remain.
    • The extracellular components of tissues (e.g., collagen fibers and elastin) also change with age.
  • 39. DISORDERS: HOMEOSTATIC IMBALANCES
    • Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled cell proliferation.
    • Cells that divide without control develop into a tumor or neoplasm.
    • A cancerous neoplasm is called a malignant tumor or malignancy . It has the ability to undergo metastasis, the spread of cancerous cells to other parts of the body. A benign tumor is a noncancerous growth.
    • Hyperplasia = increased number of cell divisions
      • benign tumor does not metastasize or spread
      • malignant---spreads due to cells that detach from tumor and enter blood or lymph
