Eukaryotic Cell Structure:
Define the terms cell and organelle.
Identify and describe the function of these cellular components: plasma membrane, nucleus, nucleolus, nuclear pores, rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum, ribosomes, Gogli apparatus, transport vesicles, lysosomes, cytosol, cytoplasm, mitochondria, microfilaments, intermediate filaments, microtubules, and centrioles.
Describe the chemical structure of a cell membrane.
Describe the roles of proteins in the plasma membrane.
Identify the types of cellular junctions.
Discuss and give examples of the following transport processes: simple diffusion, facilitated diffusion, osmosis, active transport, exocytosis, endocytosis, phagocytosis, pinocytosis, and filtration.
Explain the effects of hypertonic, isotonic and hypotonic solutions on cells.
General Cell Function:
Contrast replication, transcription and translation.
Summarize the steps in protein synthesis for intracellular, secreted, and membrane proteins.
Define the term cellular respiration.
Compare and contrast energy input, efficiency of energy production, oxygen use, by-products and cellular location of glycolysis, the Krebs cycle and the electron transport chain.
Differentiate between mitosis and meiosis.
