  3. 3. © Boardworks Ltd 20073 of 39 Where in the world? How does a cell resemble a city?
  4. 4. © Boardworks Ltd 20074 of 39 What is a cell?  Multicellular organisms consists of many cells – humans are made from an estimated 50 trillion cells!  Unicellular organisms, such as bacteria, consist of just a single cell. A cell is the basic unit of life, from which larger structures such as tissue and organs are made.
  5. 5. © Boardworks Ltd 20075 of 39 How big is a cell? Most plant and animal cells are between 0.025µm and 60µm in size – around half the diameter of a human hair – and too small to see without a microscope. The largest cell in the human body is the female egg cell, (ovum) at around 1,000µm in diameter. The smallest human cell is the sperm cell – the head is around 5 µm long.
  6. 6. © Boardworks Ltd 20076 of 39 Specialized cells Most plants and animals are multicellular. The human body is made up of around 200 different types of cell, all working together. Most cells are specialized, meaning that each type of cell has a specific structure and function. All cells with a nucleus contain the same genes, but different cells activate different genes so they only produce the proteins they need. However, all cells have certain common features and structures called organelles.

  18. 18. © Boardworks Ltd 200718 of 39 How do plant cells specialize? Unlike animals, many plant cells retain the ability to differentiate and specialize throughout their life. These cells are found in tissues called meristems. sieve cell leaf cellroot cell meristem cell

  21. 21. © Boardworks Ltd 200721 of 39 What is a cell wall? All plant cells have a cell wall – a rigid layer that surrounds the cell membrane. Unlike the cell membrane, the cell wall is freely permeable to water and other molecules.  maintain the shape and structure of the cell The plant cell wall is made from cellulose, a carbohydrate polymer. The purpose of the cell wall is to:  protect the cell’s contents from pathogens  prevent damage to the cell caused by excess water intake.
  22. 22. © Boardworks Ltd 200722 of 39 What is a vacuole? The vacuole is a fluid–filled sac found within plant cells and some bacteria. The vacuole has a range of functions, including: The site of vacuoles depend on how much water the plant has absorbed.  storing waste products  regulating the turgor pressure of the cell.  maintaining the water and pH balance of the cell
  23. 23. © Boardworks Ltd 200723 of 39 What are chloroplasts? Chloroplasts are the site of photosynthesis in plant cells. thylakoids A green pigment in chloroplasts called chlorophyll absorbs the energy in sunlight. Chlorophyll is embedded in disk-like structures called thylakoids, which are arranged into stacks. This energy is used to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen.

  26. 26. © Boardworks Ltd 200726 of 39 How do cells get their energy? All organisms need energy to survive. Animals obtain their energy from the food they eat, but plants can make their own food by photosynthesis. In both cases, however, energy must first be converted into a form that can easily be used by cells. This process is called respiration.
  27. 27. © Boardworks Ltd 200727 of 39 Where does respiration take place? Mitochondria are cellular organelles in which respiration takes place. Mitochondria use enzymes to convert the energy from glucose into ATP – the basic energy source for all cells. Mitochondria have an inner membrane on which the enzymes are embedded. This membrane is highly folded to increase the surface area on which respiration can take place.
  28. 28. © Boardworks Ltd 200728 of 39 What is aerobic respiration? Aerobic respiration is the process of releasing energy through the oxidation of glucose molecules. Aerobic respiration is summarized by the equation: This reaction releases energy in the form of ATP – a compound that can readily be used in cellular processes. oxygen carbon dioxide glucose + + water ( energy)+ 6O2 6CO2C6H12O6 + + 6H20 ( ATP)+
  29. 29. © Boardworks Ltd 200729 of 39 What is anaerobic respiration? Anaerobic respiration takes place without oxygen, and releases less energy than aerobic respiration because glucose molecules are only partially broken down. During strenuous exercise, cells are deprived of oxygen but still need energy to work. The body responds by converting glucose into lactic acid and energy, leading to an oxygen ‘debt’. Lactic acid causes muscle cramps. When exercise stops, oxygen levels rise, paying off the oxygen debt and oxidising the lactic acid.
  30. 30. © Boardworks Ltd 200730 of 39 How is energy used? The chemical energy produced by respiration, ATP, is used by cells to undertake work.  movement – enabling muscles to contract Where might ATP be used?  thermoregulation in mammals and birds  active transport – moving molecules against a concentration gradient.  biosynthesis – building new molecules, cells and tissues
  31. 31. © Boardworks Ltd 200731 of 39 What is photosynthesis? Photosynthesis is a chemical reaction where light energy is used to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen. This reaction can be summarized by the equation: The reaction uses light energy from the Sun and takes place in chloroplasts of plant cells. carbon dioxide + water oxygenglucose + 6CO2 + 6H20 6O2C6H12O6 + light energy chlorophyll
  32. 32. © Boardworks Ltd 200732 of 39 Using energy from photosynthesis The glucose produced by photosynthesis has many uses in plants, such as for:  energy release in respiration  making cellulose for cell walls  combining with minerals to make proteins and other essential compounds  an energy store in the form of insoluble starch.
