  1. 1. Prokaryotic Cells <ul><li>Believed to be the first cells to evolve. </li></ul><ul><li>Lack a membrane bound nucleus and organelles. </li></ul><ul><li>Genetic material is naked in the cytoplasm </li></ul><ul><li>Ribosomes are only organelle. </li></ul><ul><li>Http.micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells.html </li></ul>
  2. 2. Cell Wall <ul><li>Rigid peptidoglycan - polysaccharide coat that gives the cell shape and surround the cytoplasmic mem-brane. Offers protection from environment. </li></ul><ul><li>Http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/bacteriacell.html </li></ul>
  3. 3. Plasma Membrane <ul><li>Layer of phospho-lipids and proteins that separates cytoplasm from external environment. </li></ul><ul><li>Regulates flow of material in and out of cell. </li></ul><ul><li>Http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/bacteriacell.html </li></ul>
  4. 4. Cytoplasm <ul><li>Also known as proto-plasm is location of growth, metabolism, and replication. Is a gel-like matrix of water, enzymes, nutrients, wastes, and gases and contains cell structures. </li></ul><ul><li>Http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/bacteriacell.html </li></ul>
  5. 5. Ribosomes <ul><li>Translate the genetic code into proteins. </li></ul><ul><li>Free-standing and dis-tributed throughout the cytoplasm. </li></ul><ul><li>Http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/bacteriacell.html </li></ul>
  6. 6. Nucleoid <ul><li>Region of the cytoplasm where chromosomal DNA is located. Usually a singular, circular chromosome. Smaller circles of DNA called plasmids are also located in cytoplasm. </li></ul><ul><li>Http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/bacteriacell.html </li></ul>
  7. 7. Mesosome <ul><li>Infolding of cell membrane. </li></ul><ul><li>Possible role in cell division. </li></ul><ul><li>Increases surface area. </li></ul><ul><li>Photosynthetic pigments or respira-tory chains here. </li></ul><ul><li>Http://www.med.sc.edu:85/fox/protobact.jpg </li></ul>
  8. 8. Eukaryotic Cells <ul><li>“ True nucleus”; contained in a mem-brane bound structure. </li></ul><ul><li>Membrane bound organelles. </li></ul><ul><li>Thought to have evolved from prokaryotic cells. </li></ul><ul><li>Http:micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/animalcell.html </li></ul>
  9. 9. Ribosomes <ul><li>Translate the genetic code into proteins. </li></ul><ul><li>Found attached to the Rough endoplasmic reticulum or free in the cytoplasm. </li></ul><ul><li>60% RNA and 40% protein. </li></ul><ul><li>Http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/animals/ribosomes.html </li></ul>

  11. 11. Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum <ul><li>Network of continuous sacs, studded with ribosomes. </li></ul><ul><li>Manufactures, pro-cesses, and transports proteins for export from cell. </li></ul><ul><li>Continuous with nuclear envelope. </li></ul><ul><li>Http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cels/animal/endoplasmicreticulum.html </li></ul>
  12. 12. Endoplasmic Reticulum Http://cellbio.utmb.edu/cellbio/ribosome.htm
  13. 13. Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum <ul><li>Similar in appearance to rough ER, but without the ribosomes. </li></ul><ul><li>Involved in the production of lipids, carbohydrate metabolism, and detoxification of drugs and poisons. </li></ul><ul><li>Metabolizes calcium. </li></ul><ul><li>Http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/animals/endoplasmicreticulum.html </li></ul>
  14. 14. Lysosome <ul><li>Single membrane bound structure. </li></ul><ul><li>Contains digestive enzymes that break down cellular waste and debris and nutrients for use by the cell. </li></ul><ul><li>Http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/cells/animals/lysosome/html </li></ul>
