Heres what a cell is! Cell - the smallest unit of an organism that carries on the functions of life

A cell can perform all the processes of life. Many Sizes: nerve cells - up to a meter long human egg cell - dot of an i bacteria - 80,000 could fit in the dot of an i

Different shapes: Related to their function (job) Cell types: Prokaryotic cell - very simple; no membrane-bound structures (ex: bacteria)

Eukaryotic cell - more advanced; has membrane-bound structures Early Cell Scientists Robert Hooke (1665) An English scientist who looked at slices of cork under a crude compound

microscope and saw a great many little boxes that he called cells. First person to see cells. Cell comes from the Latin word for little room. Early Cell Scientists Anton van Leeuwenhoek (1673)

A Dutch shopkeeper who looked at pond water using a simple microscope and saw what he called animalcules. Today, we call them singlecelled organisms. An Early Simple Microscope Early Cell Scientists Matthias Schleiden (1838)

A German botanist who discovered that all plants are made up of similar units, or cells. Early Cell Scientists Theodor Schwann (around 1830) A German scientist who stated that all plants and animals are made up of

building blocks, or cells. He also observed that there are similarities and differences between plant and animal cells. Early Cell Scientists Rudolph Virchow (1858) This German physician also reported that every living thing is

made of up vital units, known as cells. He also predicted that cells come from other cells. Cell Theory 1. All living things are made up of one or more cells. cells 2. Cells are the basic unit of

structure and function in living things. 3. All cells come only from other living cells. cells Cell Structure Animal Cell

1. Cell 2. Tissue 3. Organ 4. Organ System 5. Organism Tissue Example: Muscle Tissues are made of

specialized cells. Organ Examples: Heart, Lung, Brain Found in both plants and animals. Composed of tissue that is organized into groups that work together to perform special

functions. Organ System Example: Circulatory System A group of organs that work together. 10 Organ Systems in complex organisms

contain tissue? Explain. QUESTION: Give one example of each: a. Cell c. Tissue b. Organ d. Organism

Cell Processes Think of the cell membrane as being like a gatekeeper at an ancient castle. It was the gatekeepers job to decide when to open the gate and allow people to pass into and out of the castle. The gatekeeper controlled the

permeability of the castle walls. Permeable If the gatekeeper allowed friendly folk to enter, he or she was allowing the castle walls to be permeable. Permeable means that in cells certain substances can move

freely through the membrane. Impermeable If the gatekeeper prevented enemies from entering, he or she was allowing the castle walls to be impermeable. Impermeable means that in cells substances cannot pass freely

through the membrane. Selectively Permeable Because the gatekeeper can select those that can enter the castle, he or she was allowing the castle walls to be selectively permeable. Because the cell membrane allows some materials to pass through and is

impervious to others it is selectively permeable. Substances that move into or out of a cell do so by one of three methods: Diffusion This is the main way by which

substances move into and out of cells. The process by which molecules tend to move from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration. Eventually there is an equal concentration of molecules inside and outside of the cell.

Osmosis is the diffusion of water molecules through a permeable membrane. Osmosis is important to cells because cells cannot function properly without adequate water.

Osmosis In osmosis, water molecules move by diffusion from an area where they are highly concentrated through the cell membraneto an area where they are less concentrated.

*The cell doesnt need to use energy to move materials across the membrane. Active Transport Requires the cell to use energy to let things pass through the membrane. Large proteins in the

cell membrane are involved in active transport. Cell Division The cells in your body are constantly changing. Most new cells replace damaged or dead cells. These new cells are made

during a process called cell division. When cell division takes place two identical cells are produced. Cell Division In single celled organisms, cell division results in the formation of two new organisms.

Dividing Parameciu m Cell Division In many celled organisms, cell division increases the number of cells making up the organism.

As the cells increase in number, the organism grows. Feeling Fine Cell Cycle The cell divides.

The cell grows and develops. The cell prepares for division. This cycle may take a few hours or a few days!

Mitosis: Cell Division 1 hour Preparation for Division 2 hours

DNA Replication 10 hours Growth 9 hours This process by which a cells nucleus divides into two identical nuclei is called

Mitosis Mitosis occurs in several phases. Most of a cells life is spent in the growth and development phase, called interphase. Interphase

The cell is making enough protein, mitochondria, and other substances for two cells. In the nucleus, each chromosome is forming an exact copy of itself. In animal cells, two pairs of centrioles are forming in the

cytoplasm. Prophase The nuclear membrane dissolves. The centrioles migrate to opposite sides of the cell. Spindle fibers form between the centrioles.

Chromatid pairs are pulled to the center of the cell by the spindles. Metaphase The chromosomes align across the center of the cell. Each chromosome

attaches to a spindle fiber at its centromere. Anaphase The centromeres split and the chromatids become two identical chromosomes. The spindle fibers shrink, pulling the chromosomes to

opposite sides of the cell. The cell stretches out to prepare for division. Telophase The chromosomes reach opposite ends of the cell. The spindles disintegrate. A nuclear membrane forms

around each set of chromosomes, forming two new nuclei. A furrow forms in the cell membrane, deepens, and divides the cell completely. Mitosis in Plants different!

Plants do not have centrioles. But they do have spindle fibers. The rigid cell wall cant form a furrow in the middle, so a cell plate forms across the middle. Mitosis in Plants different! After the cell divides into two new

cells, each forms its own cell wall. QUESTION: During what phase of mitosis does a cell divide into two new cells? Answer: During telophase!

QUESTION: How does mitosis differ in plants and animals? Answer: Plants do not have centrioles. Plants form a cell plate before dividing.
