In what organelle does cellular respiration take place?
Name two storage organelles?
What is the list of organelles that take part in protein synthesis?
Nucleus (transcription), ribosomes (translation)-free and fixed (Rough ER)
How is the nucleus involved in protein synthesis?
What do ribosomes di? Are they found freely floating in the cytoplasm? OR are they found attached to another organelle? OR both. Explain why this occurs.
Protein synthesis. both; depends on the destination of the protein (to stay inside the cell=free; cell membrane or leave the cell=fixed)
What does the endoplasmic reticulum do?
Rough - make proteins; Smooth-makes lipids, detox. Sends material to golgi to be shipped
What is the difference between rough ER and smooth ER? What is the ER doing that is different in each case?
What are lysomsomes?
What type of molecules would be found inside the lysosome?
Special enzymes (protein) to degrade materials.
In what organelle do molecules move from the ER to the Golgi bodies
What is meant by "membrane turnover"?
Components of the membranes are always, always, always being replaced, recycled, reused.
What is a centriole?
used for mitosis
What is the difference between chromosomes and chromatin?
chromosomes - (condensed: preparing for mitosis)
chromatin - (not condensed)
What do they each have to do with DNA?
they are DNA and histones
What is flagella?
How does flagella differ in size and number from cilia
there are not very many flagella compared to cilia
Which organelle can convert sugar (glucose) and oxygen into ATP (energy molecule), carbon dioxide and water?
What is the process in number 17 called
What is the molecular composition of the cell membrane?
phospholipid bilayer, proteins, carbohydrates
What is the cytoskeleton made up of?
proteins - filaments
What organelles are responsible for transport of some kind?
What is the molecular composition of the cell membrane? Howw are these molecules arranged in the membrane?
phospholipid bilayer, proteins, carbohydrates
What is the value of cell membrane structure of having both polar and non-polar phospholipids ends?
What are the different types of functions proteins present in a cell membrane can have?
MANY - carrier, adhesion, channel (see powerpoint)
Which part of the cell membrane actually CONTROLS which molecules can enter and leave a cell?
Do you think that the membranes around each organelle contain different types of proteins with different types olf properties? Why or why not?
yes, based on the molecules that come and go from the organelle.
What is the difference between a cell that is prokazryotic and a cell this is eukaryotic?
nucleusWhat are teh two types of nucleic acid molecules found in cells? what is the role/function of each? RNA, DNA (see powerpoints)
