At the beginning of class on Friday, we turned in both of our labs that we had finished. After turning in our labs we immediately began taking notes in our Basics of Organic Chemistry notes packet (yellow packet). It was a rushed day because of the shortened periods but we managed to finish taking notes from the "CELLS Structure and Functions" part of our notes to most of the "Plasma Membrane" section of our notes.

1. Sections of our notes that we recognized as important were
  • "World of Cells Theory"
  • "Membrane Structure"

2. Bullet points in our notes packet we underlined :
  • Scanning Electron Microscope- detailed architecture of the surface of a cell Transmission Electron Microscope- exploring the internal structure of a cell
  • Nuclear Envelope: double membrane with pores that surrounds the nucleus

nucleus 1 300x209 Anatomy and Physiology: Cells

  • DNA attached to protein is found in the nucleus in the form of chromatin
  • Ribosomes are responsible for assisting in protein synthesis by making enzymes and proteins for the organism
  • In the Endomembrane Review we circled Rough ER, Golgi apparatus,Vacuole, Lysosome, and Plasma membrane because they all work together
  • Stroma- thick fluid inside the inner membrane (of chloroplasts)

3.Ideas discussed to help us comprehend what we learned better:
  • Ribosomes go from the nucleus to the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum (Rough ER) because it transports the ribosomes to where they need to go.
  • In diagrams, proteins will always be purple
  • The Golgi Apparatus is like a UPS system because it finishes, stores, and distributes chemical products of the cell.
  • Lysosomes are like garbage centers.
  • In diagrams, Grana (located in chloroplasts) looks like stacks of pancakes.

  • When you hear ATP, think 'energy'.

4. Concepts/ideas we should be sure to review
  • shapes and organelles unique to bacteria

  • different parts of plant and animal cells

  • being able to tell the difference between smooth ER and the golgi apparatus

  • pages 33-55 in unit packet
  • read chapter 5 pages 80-86
  • everyday homework: review notes!
  • EC: create your own cell doctor
next - Xavier
