Lecture #1: Introduction t Chapter 1
- cells = unit of life
- about 10-100 million different kinds of organisms t each have many different types of cells
o adult human body has about 60 trillion cells and 200 different kinds of cells
- all cells are molecules that carry out chemical activity

- Cell Theory:
o all organisms composed of one or more cells
o cells = structural unit of life for all organisms
o cells come from pre-existing cells
- cells = structural compartments, separate external environment from internal, macromolecules
perform unique functions in cells
o cells are highly complex and organized
o cells possess genetic program and means to use it (e.g. transcription, translation
ZuZ]vÇ[t genes to proteins)
o cells are capable of reproducing more of themselves (e.g. mitosis, meiosis)
o cells acquire and utilize energy to develop/maintain complexity (e.g. photosynthesis,
cellular respiration t sun to carbs to ATP)
o cells carry out a variety of chemical rxns (e.g. enzymes t use/produce ATP)
o cells engage in many mechanical activities (e.g. intracellular transport,
assembly/dismantling cell components, cell movement)
o cells respond to stimuli (e.g. w/ surface receptions t proteins)
o cells can self-regulate (e.g. DNA repair, immune cells)
o cells evolve (beneficial genetic mutation, cell changes kept, retained in future)

genetic material loosely organized in nucleoid regions in cytoplasm, have plasma membrane and
ribosomes, cell wall gives support

oxygen-based life on earth, most morphologically diverse group of bacteria

unicellular), have internal cytoskeleton for support

- rRNA tree indicates 3 major groups of organisms:
o 1 of eukaryotes t Eukarya
o 2 of prokaryotes t Bacteria and Archaea
- unicellular organisms must do everything needed to survive (e.g. most protists)

Leah — University of Toronto

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
