  1. 1. Cell Structure & Function
  2. 2. Cell Theory <ul><li>All living things are made up of cells. </li></ul><ul><li>Cells are the smallest working units of all living things. </li></ul><ul><li>All cells come from preexisting cells through cell division. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Definition of Cell A cell is the smallest unit that is capable of performing life functions.
  4. 4. Cell Classified to function <ul><li>Muscle cell </li></ul><ul><li>Nerve cell </li></ul><ul><li>Epithelial cell </li></ul><ul><li>Connective tissue cell </li></ul>
  5. 5. Examples of Cells Amoeba Proteus Plant Stem Red Blood Cell Nerve Cell Bacteria
  6. 6. Two Types of Cells <ul><li>Prokaryotic </li></ul><ul><li>Eukaryotic </li></ul>
  7. 7. Prokaryotic <ul><li>Do not have structures surrounded by membranes </li></ul><ul><li>Few internal structures </li></ul><ul><li>One-celled organisms, Bacteria </li></ul>
  8. 8. Eukaryotic <ul><li>Contain organelles (little organs) surrounded by membranes </li></ul><ul><li>Most living organisms </li></ul>Plant Animal
  9. 9. “ Typical” Animal Cell
  10. 10. <ul><li>Cells are surrounded by cell membrane </li></ul><ul><li>The interior of the cell is divided: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Nucleus </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cytoplasm </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Cytoplasm contains two components </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cell organelles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cytosol </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Cell Parts Surrounding the Cell
  12. 12. Cell Membrane <ul><li>Function of cell membrane </li></ul><ul><li>Regulate the passage of substance into and out of cell and between cell organelles and cytosol. </li></ul><ul><li>Link adjacent cells together </li></ul><ul><li>Detect chemical messengers arriving at the cell surface </li></ul>
  13. 13. The Cell Membrane Structure
  14. 14. Overview <ul><li>Cell membrane separates living cell from nonliving surroundings </li></ul><ul><ul><li>thin barrier = 8nm thick </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Made of phospholipids , proteins & other macromolecules </li></ul>
  15. 15. Phospholipids <ul><li>Fatty acid tails </li></ul><ul><ul><li>hydrophobic </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Phosphate group head </li></ul><ul><ul><li>hydrophilic </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Arranged as a bilayer </li></ul>Fatty acid Phosphate
  16. 16. Phospholipid bilayer polar hydrophilic heads nonpolar hydrophobic tails polar hydrophilic heads
  17. 17. More than lipids… <ul><li>In 1972, S.J. Singer & G. Nicolson proposed that membrane proteins are inserted into the phospholipid bilayer </li></ul><ul><li>Two types of membrane protein </li></ul><ul><li>Integral membrane </li></ul><ul><li>Peripheral membrane </li></ul>
  18. 18. Membrane is a collage of proteins & other molecules embedded in the fluid matrix of the lipid bilayer Extracellular fluid Cholesterol Cytoplasm Phospholipids Glycolipid Transmembrane proteins Filaments of cytoskeleton Peripheral protein Glycoprotein
  19. 19. Membrane Proteins <ul><li>Proteins determine membrane’s specific functions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>cell membrane & organelle membranes each have unique collections of proteins </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Membrane proteins: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>peripheral proteins </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>loosely bound to surface of membrane </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>integral proteins </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>penetrate lipid bilayer, usually across whole membrane </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>transmembrane protein </li></ul></ul></ul>
  20. 20. Proteins domains anchor molecule <ul><li>Within membrane </li></ul><ul><ul><li>nonpolar amino acids </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>hydrophobic </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>anchors protein into membrane </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>On outer surfaces of membrane </li></ul><ul><ul><li>polar amino acids </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>hydrophilic </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>extend into extracellular fluid & into cytosol </li></ul></ul></ul>Polar areas of protein Nonpolar areas of protein
  21. 21. Many Functions of Membrane Proteins Outside Plasma membrane Inside Transporter Cell surface receptor Enzyme activity Cell surface identity marker Attachment to the cytoskeleton Cell adhesion
  22. 22. Membrane carbohydrates <ul><li>Play a key role in cell-cell recognition </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ability of a cell to distinguish one cell from another </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>important in organ & tissue development </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. Membrane Junctions <ul><li>Some cell not anchored to other cells but suspend in the fluid. </li></ul><ul><li>Most cells are packaged into tissues and are not free to move. </li></ul><ul><li>Many cells physically joined by specialized types: </li></ul><ul><li>Desmosomes </li></ul><ul><li>Tight junctions </li></ul><ul><li>Gap junctions </li></ul>
  24. 24. Inside the Cell
  25. 25. Nucleus <ul><li>Almost all cells contain a single nucleus. </li></ul><ul><li>Directs cell activities </li></ul><ul><li>Separated from cytoplasm by nuclear membrane </li></ul><ul><li>Function-Stores and transmits genetic information in the form of DNA. Genetic information passes from the nucleus to the cytoplasm </li></ul>
