1 Bio-CP Chapter 7 Cell Notes

2 I. Cell = Building block of all living organisms A. Robert Hooke (1665) observed cork under a crude microscope 1. He called the boxes cells because they looked like little rooms that priests lived in.

3 B. Anton van Leeuwenhoek (1673) was the first to observe living cells.

4 II. Cell Theory (Schleiden 1838, Schwann 1839, & Virchow 1855) A. Cell Theory States: 1. All living things are composed of cells. 2. Cells are the basic units of structure and function in living things.

5 3. New cells come from division of preexisting cells.

9 III. Classification of cells (Not all cells are alike 200 different kinds in the human body) according to complexity

10 A. Prokaryotic cells 1. Most ancient and simplest (unicellular). Blue-green algae (Cyanobacteria)

11 2. Do not have an organized nucleus (i.e. naked DNA).

12 3. Do not have any membrane bound organelles, but they have ribosomes, cell membranes, and usually cell walls. See no nucleus!!! See Cell Wall!!!

13 4. Bacteria 5. Unicellular Organisms Only 6. Relatively small in size

14 7. Bad Bacteria -Bacteria that cause illness and disease a. Bacterial diseases examples: tuberculosis, tetanus, syphilis, cholera, bubonic plague
