  • The protist destroys red blood cells and other tissues. Can be fatal
  • Transcript

    • 1. Protists
    • 2. ProtistsThe Unicellular Eukaryotes
    • 3. General Characteristics• First appeared 1.5 billion years ago• First eukaryotic organism• Eukaryotes• Mostly unicellular• Mostly aerobic• Most are motile
    • 4. • Classified together because they do not fit into other kingdoms, rather than because they are similar or closely related to one another• Most diverse group of eukaryotes
    • 5. Helpful Protists• Major producers and make up the bulk of the lowest consumer level in aquatic ecosystems.• Used in commodities – Ex. Seaweed is in sushi, toothpaste and paints.
    • 6. Harmful Protists• Many are parasites• Can cause serious disease – Ex. Malaria and giardiases
    • 7. The Origin of Eukaryotes• Membrane bound nucleus – Through the infolding of the cell membrane in and ancestral prokaryote in order to increase surface area
    • 8. The Origin of Eukaryotes• Mitochondria – Through endosymbiosis of an ancestral prokaryote
    • 9. The Origin of Eukaryotes• Chloroplast – Through endosymbiosis of an ancestral photosynthetic prokaryote
    • 10. Terms:• Endosymbiosis = a single-celled organisms living inside another organism• Endocytosis = engulfing of particles through the extention of a cell membrane
    • 11. Examples of some groups: Amoeba NucleusVideo:http://www.youtube.com/watch? Pseudopodia:v=W6rnhiMxtKU extensions of the cytoplasm
    • 12. AmoebaKey Features• Create pseudopods (extentions of cytoplasm)• UnicellularLocomotion• Pseudopods extend and contractFeeding• Feed through endocytosis• Some are human pathogens (parasites)Ex. amoebic dysentery is cause by an Entamoeba (causes intestinal bleeding)
    • 13. Flagellates
    • 14. Key Feature Flagellates• Possess one or more flagella (long whip-like structures)• UnicellularLocomotion FlagellaFeeding Some feed on other protists Some are human pathogens (parasites) Ex. Trypanosoma gambiensis in the tse tse fly causes human sleeping sickness.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aVUrGO97Zg
    • 15. Sporozoans
    • 16. SporozoansKey Feature• Produce spores• UnicellularLocomotion Non-motileFeeding Parasitic (obtain nutrients from the bodies of their hosts)Ex. Plasmodium cause malaria.
    • 17. SporozoansWhen red blood cells bursts toxins are released causing chills and feverSome types of malaria can be fatalVery serious world-wide diseasehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqRuSwZey_U&feature=related
    • 18. Slime moulds
    • 19. Slime mouldsKey Feature• Their life cycles have unicellular stages and multicellular stagesLocomotion• Flagella or pseudopodsFeeding- Heterotrophshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6rqyaYYZeo&feature=related
    • 20. Red Algae
    • 21. Life Cycles• Unicellular protists: – Asexual - Binary fission – Sexual – Conjugation
    • 22. Life Cycles• Multicellular protists: – Sexual reproduction – Formation of haploid spores (through meiosis) which can fuse to produce a diploid zygote
