The Cell (PPT from Mrs. Brenda Lee)

  1. 1. Cell Structuresand Functions
  2. 2. The Cell the smallest unit of life that can carry out all the functions of a living thing. fundamental building blocks of organisms.
  3. 3. Brief History of the Cell
  4. 4. Antonie van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723)
  5. 5. Robert Hooke (1635-1703)
  6. 6. Cork CellThe word cell comes from theLatin cella, a small room.
  7. 7. The Cell Theory Robert Brown (1831)  Described the nucleus of the cell Matthias Schleiden (1838)  All plants are composed of cells. Theodor Schwann (1838)  All animals are composed of cells Rudolph Virchow (1850s)  Cells reproduce
  8. 8. The Cell Theory All organisms are composed of cells. Cells are the basic units of structure and function in organisms. Cells come only from pre-existing cells because cells are self- reproducing.
  9. 9. Microscopy Today  Electron Microscopes are scientific instruments that use a beam of highly energetic electrons to examine objects on a very fine scale.

  43. 43. Eukaryotic Cell Organelles and Function7. Plasma Membrane • Another name: Cell Membrane; “traffic enforcer” • Function: hold the cell together. It keeps all of the pieces, like the organelles and the CYTOPLASM inside; regulates the entrance and exit of materials in and out the cell.
  44. 44. Plasma MembraneFluid Mosaic Model of Plasma Membrane
  45. 45. Fluid Mosaic Model of the Plasma Membrane The membrane is seen as a bilayer of phospholipids in which protein molecules are embedded.Lipid bilayer a. Phospholipids : polar head and nonpolar tail b. Cholesterol: makes membrane a bit more rigid c. Proteins: provide means of transportation through membrane and receptor proteins d. Carbohydrates: recognition patterns for cells and organisms (“self” markers to avoid immune system attack)

  48. 48. Cilia and Flagella • The most common examples of ciliated cells are those that line the trachea, or wind pipe of animals. • The cilia move mucus containing dirt and other inhaled particles up the windpipe and into the esophagus where they can be coughed up or
