All About Cells! - Page Text Content

BC: "Don't cry because it's over, Smile because it happened." - Dr Seuss

FC: All About Cells! | By Angeli and Trey

1: The Cells Project

2: Three Principles: 1) All organisms consist of one or more cells. 2) The cell is the basic unit of structure for all organisms. 3) All cells arise from preexisting cells. | Ce l l Theo r y

4: Anton Van Leeuwenhoek

5: Known for making improvements to the microscope, and cell research. Born in Delft, the Netherlands, on October 24th, 1632.

6: Robert Hooke | Born on July 18th, 1635, at Freshwater, on the Isle of Wight. He was an English natural philosopher, architect and polymath.

8: Matthias Schleiden

9: Born on April 5th, 1804, and was a German botanist and co-founder of the cell theory.

10: Theodore Schwann

11: Born on December 7th, 1810,and was a German physiologist. He developed the cell theory.

12: Pro - before Prokaryotic - before a nucleus They have no nuclei | Prokaryotic Cell vs. Eukaryotic Cell

13: Eu - true, or good Eukaryotic - possessing a true nucleus Do have true nuclei

14: Both have nuclei Animal cells are round, plant cells are rectangular Both have ribosomes and mitochondria | Plant Cell vs. Animal Cell

16: Ten Cell Structures | 1) Nucleus - it is the "brain" of the cell. It stores genetic information and acts as the control center for the cell and organelles. 2) Mitochondria - the powerhouse of the cell. Without any power, the cell wouldn't live. 3) Chloroplasts - as in animals, chloroplasts (along with mitochondria) supply power to the plant cell. 4) Cell Wall - this protects the organelles in the cytoplasm from foreign objects. 5) Cell Membrane - since the cell membrane plays a major role in osmosis and such, I would say it's pretty important.

17: 6) Endoplasmic Reticulum - the transport of proteins to the nucleus is very important. 7) Ribosomes - the proteins need to be made somewhere, and this is where. 8) Golgi Apparatus - this is the packaging and distribution center of the cell. When something needs to be "taken out", like waste, this is the organelle that helps. 9) Lysosome - these pair with the golgi apparatus to get rid of waste. 10) Vacuole - even though it's last, the vacuole hold important material, like water.

18: Cell Membrane | The cell membrane encloses the cell contents. Its main function is to control what gets into and out of the cell.

20: Homeostasis | The property of a system that regulates its internal environment and tends to maintain a stable constant condition of properties like temp. or pH.

23: Home is where there's someone to love, and someone to love us.

25: "Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
