Back to the Basics: An Introductory Overview of Cells
Presented by the Center for Teaching and Learning And Marc McCloskey, Science TA

What We Will Be Covering
What is a Cell? The Two Types of Cells Examples of These Types of Cells The Exception The Organelles and Their Functions Reproduction Transfer

What is a Cell?
Latin for “small room” A cell is the functionaland structural unit of all living organisms What is Considered a “Living” organism? Found as early as 1632 by Antony van Leeuwenhoek The Cell Theory --1839 by the German botanist Matthias Jakob Schleiden and German physiologist Theodore Schwann

Types of Cells:
Prokaryotic
Bacteria Archaea

Eukaryotic
Unicellular
Protists

Multi-cellular
Fungi Plants Animals

Prokaryotic Cells
Characteristics
Old Greek for “Before nut (kernel)” Unicellular (some multi-cellular in very rare cases)Lacks a membrane bound nucleus Lacks membrane bound organelles Has a cell membrane (cell wall) Has ribosomes (protein production) Circular DNA

Example of a Prokaryotic Cell

Bacteria
Characteristics
Greek for “small stick” Most Abundant Organism Found in all Media Many are Pathogens Move by Flagella or by Gliding Asexual Reproduction Beneficial in Everyday Needs

Archaea
Characteristics
Greek for “old ones” Identified in 1977 by Carl Woese of theUniversity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and George Fox Extremophiles Mesophiles Found in Living Organisms Two Groups: Euryarchaeota and Crenarchaeota
