Chapter 3Cell Structure and FunctionEukaryotic Cell Structure

Chemical Components of CellsMost cells are composed of 4 elementsCarbonHydrogenOxygenNitrogenCells are about 60% waterAnatomy of a Generalized CellCells have 4 main regions (parts)NucleusCytoplasmPlasma Membrane


Control centerCell reproduction DNA --Visible ChromosomesNuclear envelopeDouble membranePoresNucleolirRNA and tRNA assembly

Cell Membrane-fluid mosaicControls movement into and out of the cellComposed of lipid and protein bilayerCholesterolGlycolipidsGlycoproteins

Components of Cell Membrane(Fluid Mosaic Model) Phospholipids (bilayer)Phospholipids Hydrophillic (water loving) Head: Phosphate and glycerolHydrophobic Tails (water hating): impermeable to most water soluble molelculesCholesterol membrane fluidityProteins: Receptors, enzymes, transport channels or carriersReceptors: Glycoproteins and GlycolipidsBlood type, organ transplant rejection

ORGANELLESSpecialized cellular compartmentsMany membrane bound

Cytoplasm (Cytosol)Semi-fluid material suspends other elementsContains enzymes

MitochondrionDouble membraneInternal foldsCellular Respiration!!! Energy for cellContains its own DNA and RNA

RibosomesSite of Protein synthesisFound free in cytoplasmAs a part of the Rough ER

Endoplasmic Reticulum

Fluid Filled Tubules Rough ERContains RibosomesMoves proteins within cellSmooth ERNo RibosomesProtein modificationLipid metabolism

Rough ER

Golgi Apparatus

Flattened sacs Modifies, Sorts, and packages proteins arriving from ER for delivery


Golgi AnimationMaterials are transported from Rough ER to Golgi to the cell membrane by VESICLES

153 types of packages


Intracellular digestion (enzymes)Membranous bags from golgi apparatus Fuse with vesiclesIngested food Damaged organelles

Tay-Sachs disease-missing or inactive lysosomal enzymes

Cilia and FlagellaCell movement Sperm cells-flagellaMovement of materials along surfaceRespiratory tract-ciliaMicrovilli fingerlike extensions Increase surface area for absorption22Cilia Moving Away Dust Particles from the LungsRespiratory System

22Membrane TransportTwo basic methodsPassive Transport (no energy required)Active Transport (energy required ATP)Passive TransportDiffusion Simple: lipid soluble or smallOsmosis: water moves thru aquaporinsFacilitated: use carriersFiltration

Passive Transport: FiltrationWater and solutes are forced through a membrane because of a pressure gradientThrough capillary wallsMovement of water or small solutesKidneys-blood filtrationActive TransportSolute pumpingRequires protein carriersATP used Examples: sodium/potassium pump

Active TransportEndocytosis: into the cellPhagocytosis: engulfing large particlesPinocytosis: cell drinking

Exocytosis: movement out of the cell

Protein Synthesis (into) (into) DNA mRNA Protein transcription translation

As the ribosomemoves along the mRNA,a new amino acid isadded to the growingprotein chain.Released tRNAreenters thecytoplasmic pool,ready to be rechargedwith a new aminoacid.mRNA specifying onepolypeptide is made onDNA template.mRNA leavesnucleus and attachesto ribosome, andtranslation begins.Incoming tRNArecognizes acomplementarymRNA codon callingfor its amino acid bybinding via its anticodonto the codon.mRNAFigure 3.16 Protein synthesis.Nuclear membrane21345Nuclear poreNucleus(site of transcription)DNAAminoacidsCytoplasm(site of translation)SynthetaseenzymeCorrect aminoacid attached toeach species oftRNA by an enzymeGrowingpolypeptidechainPeptide bondtRNA headbearing anticodonLarge ribosomal subunitCodonPortion ofmRNA alreadytranslatedSmall ribosomal subunitDirection ofribosome advance;ribosome moves themRNA strand alongsequentially as each codon is read.MetGlySerPheAlaSlide 138
