BGY10 J Midterm 1 Lecture #1: Introduction J Chapter 1 - cells = unit of life - about 10-100 million different kinds of organisms J 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 - 1665: Z},}}l[Z]Z]} ooZ}}-like compartments = cork cells from oak bark - 1665-9L}LL>LZ}l]Z]Z]L2o ooZZanimalcules[]L}L - 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 ZK Z]L[J genes to proteins) o cells are capable of reproducing more of themselves (e.g. mitosis, meiosis) o cells acquire and utilize energy to developmaintain complexity (e.g. photosynthesis, cellular respiration J sun to carbs to ATP) o cells carry out a variety of chemical rxns (e.g. enzymes J useproduce ATP) o cells engage in many mechanical activities (e.g. intracellular transport, assemblydismantling cell components, cell movement) o cells respond to stimuli (e.g. w surface receptions J proteins) o cells can self-regulate (e.g. DNA repair, immune cells) o cells evolve (beneficial genetic mutation, cell changes kept, retained in future) ** review cell structure J pictures in textbook - prokaryotes lack membrane-enclosed organelles (DNA but no nucleus), over 3 billion years old, genetic material loosely organized in nucleoid regions in cytoplasm, have plasma membrane and ribosomes, cell wall gives support o Z ooZZ]Ko[7K}o] oo]ZJ includes bacteria, cyanobacteria, archaebacteria o cyanobacteria = blue-green algae: aerobic photosynthetic prokaryotes, responsible for oxygen-based life on earth, most morphologically diverse group of bacteria - eukaryotes have membrane-enclosed organelles, over1.5 billion years old (first were unicellular), have internal cytoskeleton for support o organelles: nucleus, ER, GA, chloroplasts, mitochondria, vacuoles, lysosomes) o structurally diverse J metabolicaloZZ]Ko[ o oldest eukaryotes in Kingdom Protista, rest are in Plantae, Fungi, and Animalia ** review table 1.1 in textbook (1, 7, 8 = structural features;
