Eukaryotic animal cell organelles; focus on the nucleus and the mitochondrion. Prokaryotic cell organelles; comparison with eukaryotic cell organelles. Eukaryotic plant cell structures and organelles; focus on ribosomes and cell walls.
Detailed description on the endoplasmic reticulum (rough versus smooth), mitochondrion, nucleus, chromatin, plasma membrane, and cytoskeleton (microtubules and microfilaments).
Description and examples of level of multicellular organism-organs, tissues, single cells, organelles, and molecules.
Role of three dimensional structures in the function of various organs and systems. Cell movement builds structure.
Epithelial cell sheets and single mesenchyme cells as the building block for the organism. Epithelial mesenchymal transition occurs during development to help cells adhere or move.
Various types of junctions and cell surface adhesion molecules that are responsible for keeping cells together. Homotypic binding: randomly mixed cells spontaneously sort by type.
Proteins and carbohydrates form the extracellular matrix. Functions to support the cells and for signal transduction.
Cytoskeleton is responsible for shape and movement. Proteins that build the cytoskeleton: actin, tubulin.
Functions and characteristics of organelles.
Adhesion of two types of cells and factors influencing adhesion.
Name and function of organelles in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
