Cell Structure and Function. • All living organisms are made of cells. A cell is a small, membrane enclosed structure filled with an aqueous solution. A cell is chemical system that is able to maintain its structure Prokaryotic cell structure small, with a Membrane enclosed spaces allow cell functions to be. Cellular Organization (p). • Name the three main parts of a human cell. • Describe the structure and function of the plasma membrane. • Describe the.
Discovery of the cell Cell was first discovered by Robert Hooke in after observing a piece of cork under a magnifying device.
Hooke has coined the term cell. Number of cells Organisms made of only a single cell are called unicellular organisms. For example: Amoeba and Paramecium Single cell in these organisms performs all the basic functions such as digestion, respiration, and excretion. Organisms made up of more than one cells are called multicellular organisms.
For example: Humans, cow, rose In these organisms, the cells show division of labour as particular set of cells are involved in performing a specific body function. Shape of the cells Most of the cells have a definite shape. Some cells such as that in Amoeba have no definite shape.
The human red blood cell RBC is spherical-shaped. The muscle cells in humans are spindle-shaped. The human nerve cells have elongated branched structure.
In plants and bacteria, the cell is enclosed in a protective covering called cell wall, which gives shape and rigidity to the cells. Size of the cells The smallest cell is 0. The largest cell is of size mm mm, which is the egg of an ostrich. Size of a cell has no relation with the size of an organism.
Cell structure and functions In multicellular organisms, each organ system is made up of several organs. Organs are further made up of tissues. Tissues are groups of similar cells performing a specific function.
Components of the cell a Cell membrane A cell is composed of cell membrane cytoplasm and nucleus. The cytoplasm and nucleus enclosed in the cell membrane together constitute plasma membrane. Now the transport protein, or carrier, is ready to start the cycle again.
More ATP must be made by glycolysis and the Kreb's cycle. But, making ATP requires energy. The breakdown of glucose does release energy.
But, how, specifically, is the energy released in the breakdown of glucose used to make ATP? However, most of the ATP produced from glucose is derived from hydrogens that are released as glucose is metabolized.
The electrons are then passed, in a series of reactions driven by enzymes, from protein to protein and these proteins are located in the inner membrane of mitochondria in what is called the electron transport chain. As these electron transfer reactions occur, energy is released that is used to pump the hydrogen ions across that membrane and into the area between the two mitochondrial membranes.
This creates a concentration gradient that causes the hydrogen ions to pass back through the inner membrane and, specifically, through an enzyme called ATP synthase. Mitochondrial electron transport chain. The cellular metabolism of substrates such as glucose and fatty acids green arrows in the figure generates hydrogens and, specifically, hydrogen carriers — NADH and FADH2.
