Chapter 7
Robert Hooke:
1665 - looked at a thin slice of cork
Anton van Leeuwenhoek:
1674 - observed living cells in pond water
In 1839, Schwann and Schleiden suggested that
cells were the basic unit of life.
In 1855, Rudolf Virchow concluded that all cells
come from pre-existing cells.
All living things are composed of cells
Cells are the basic units of structure and
function in living things
New cells are produced from existing cells
Cells that do not contain a nuclei.
Generally smaller and simpler than eukaryotic
EX: Bacteria
Contain a nucleus where genetic material is
separated from the cell by a membrane –
“membrane bound”
Larger and more complex
Contains specialized structures (organelles)
and internal membranes
Some are single-celled, others are large,
multicellular organisms

◦ Liquid/gelatenous part of the cell where organelles
are suspended
◦ Contains the DNA (coded instructions for making
proteins and other important molecules)
◦ Cell Song
Nuclear envelope (membrane): surrounds the
◦ Dotted with nuclear pores that allow material to
move into and out.
◦ RNA, DNA, and protein can move in and out.
◦ Chromatin: grainy material in the nucleus
◦ Chromosomes: condensed chromatin
◦ Nucleolus: dense circular area inside, where
assembly of ribosomes begins
Proteins are assembled here!!!
Found throughout the cytoplasm
Produce proteins by following coded
instructions from the nucleus.
Internal membrane system
The site where lipid components of the cell
membrane are assembled, along with
proteins and other materials that are
exported from the cell.
Rough ER: involved in the synthesis of
◦ Contains ribosomes
Smooth ER: contains
collections of
enzymes that
perform specialized

found on it.

materials from the endoplasmic reticulum for

Small organelles filled with enzymes.
Digestion, or breakdown of lipids,
carbohydrates, and proteins into small
molecules that can be used by the rest of the
Also breaks down organelles that have
outlived their usefulness
Tay-Sachs disease: traced to lysosomes that
fail to function properly.
Mitochondria: organelles that convert the
chemical energy in food into compounds
more convenient to use.
Makes energy
Composed of two membranes:
◦ Outer and inner membranes
◦ Folded inner membranes increase surface area for
more energy production
◦ Mitochondria come from the cytoplasm of the egg
cell ( from mother)
Chloroplast: capture energy from sunlight
and convert it into chemical energy in a
process known as photosynthesis.
Found in plants and photosynthetic
Surrounded by two membranes:
Contain green pigment called chlorophyll
Helps support the cell.
A network of protein filaments that maintains
cell shape.
Also involved in movement.
Microfilaments: threadlike structures made of
a protein called actin.
Produce a tough flexible framework that
supports the cell.
Microtubules: hollow structures made up of
proteins known as tubulins.
◦ Play a role in cell shape
◦ Important in cell division
◦ Cilia and flagella: movement
Centrioles: located near the nucleus and
helps to organize cell division.
◦ Not found in plant cells
Regulates what enters and leaves the cell
Composition: lipid bilayer
Fluid Mosaic Model
Transport and channel proteins: help to move
material across the cell membrane.
Carbohydrates: allow individual cells to
identify one another
Lie outside the cell membrane.

The diffusion of water through a selectively
permeable membrane.
Isotonic: the concentration of solutes is the
same inside and outside the cell
Hypertonic: solution has a higher solute
concentration than the cell
Hypotonic: solution has a lower solute
concentration than the cell.
Molecules that cannot diffuse across the cell
