1 Basic Biological Principles Biology = The study of Life
2 Characteristics of Life Complex Organization Metabolism (Energy Flow) Homeostasis Reproduction and Heredity Growth and Development Response to Stimuli
3 Sample Question A virus consists of a single strand of DNA enclosed in a protein capsule. Is a virus considered a living organism? A. Yes; since the virus contains protein, it is a living organism. B. Yes; since the virus contains DNA, it is a living organism. C. No; living organisms must have two characteristics of life, and the T4 bacteriophage only has one. D. No; viruses are not considered to be living organisms.
4 Answer: D All living organisms must have an organized structure, obtain and use energy and materials, maintain homeostasis, grow, reproduce and pass on genetic information, and respond to stimuli and evolve/adapt to their environment. Although viruses contain DNA and pass their DNA on to their offspring, they cannot do this unassisted, nor do they meet all the other criteria for living organisms. Thus, viruses are not considered to be living organisms.
5 Complex Organization Everything in the world is made up of matter and all matter is made up of atoms Elements = consist of only one kind of atom Compounds = two or more elements combined Living organisms are composed of many different organic (carbon-based) and inorganic compounds Cells = composed of many different compounds, basic building blocks of life
6 Sample Question What is the single most abundant compound in living organisms? A. fat B. carbon C. sugar D. water
7 Answer: D Water is the single most abundant compound in all living organisms. In fact, about two-thirds of the weight of cells is accounted for by water. Water is what gives cells so many of their properties.
8 Complex Organization Simplest to Most Complex: Organelle Cell Tissue Organ Organ System Whole Organism
9 Sample Question When a group of cells work together, such as in bones, muscles, or nerves, they are known as. A. an organ B. an organism C. an organelle D. a tissue
10 Answer: D When a group of cells work together, such as in bones, muscles, or nerves, they are known as a tissue. Tissues include bone, blood, nerves, muscles, and skin. A group of tissues that work together, such as the muscles that make up the heart, form an organ.
11 Metabolism All living organisms require a constant input of energy in order to function. All living organisms must possess the ability to acquire energy and materials (nutrients), and to release the energy that they acquire. Photosynthesis and Respiration
12 Homeostasis Most cellular processes occur within a limited range of temperature and ph, outside these ranges cells cease to function Homeostasis: the ability to maintain a constant internal environment. Sweating and shivering are examples of processes that occur in order to maintain homeostasis.
13 Reproduction and Heredity DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, contains all of the instructions that a living organism needs to maintain its life and reproduce. All living things contain DNA. Asexual reproduction: daughter cells are identical to parent, benefit is rapid growth Sexual reproduction: offspring receive ½ DNA from each parent (resembles both parents), benefit is genetic diversity
14 Growth and Development When living organisms produce an offspring, the offspring can grow, or increase in size, through organized patterns of development.
15 Response to Stimuli Living organisms recognize and respond to both internal and external stimuli (i.e. light, temperature, fight/flight.) Living organisms can adapt or evolve in response to their environments (losing winter fur due to rising temperatures) Living organisms have the ability to change their environments (cutting down trees) Living organisms respond to or interact with other living organisms in their environment (competition for food)
16 Sample Question Epinephrine is a hormone released from the adrenal gland of the body, most often in a stressful situation. It is known as the "fight-or-flight" hormone. One way that it causes a response in the body is to activate receptors on muscle cells. Where are these cellular receptors located? A. on the cell wall B. on the cell membrane C. in the nucleus D. around the mitochondria
17 Answer: B All cells have a cell membrane. The cell membrane separates the cell's internal environment from the external world. Cell membranes are constructed of proteins and a lipid bilayer that includes phospholipids. The cell membrane controls the movement of materials into and out of the cell, and it also contains receptors for signaling substances such as the hormone epinephrine.
18 Cell Theory the cell is the basic building block in all living things all organisms are made up of one or more cells cells arise from other cells through a cellular division process known as mitosis cells carry genetic material that is passed on to daughter cells during mitosis all cells are essentially the same in chemical composition energy flow (i.e., metabolism) occurs within cells
19 Cells!! Unicellular vs. Multicellular Cells are the basic building blocks of life In unicellular, or single-celled, organisms, each cell contains all of the components necessary for its own survival In multicellular, or many-celled, organisms, each cell has a specialized function, they all work together in a system to help the organism survive
20 Sample Question Cells contain specialized parts, known as organelles, to perform specific tasks, such as waste disposal, protein building, and movement. Even though these basic cellular functions occur in all cells, A. all cells do not perform the same exact functions in unicellular organisms. B. the cellular components are not at all related to the overall function of the cell. C. the cells in unicellular organisms and all the cells in multicellular organisms must perform the same functions. D. all cells do not perform the same exact functions in multicellular organisms.
21 Answer: D Unicellular organisms only consist of one cell, so all of their necessary functions must be performed within that one cell. Multicellular organisms contain many cells, so these organisms have specialized cells that perform different functions. The specialization of cells in multicellular organisms allows them to operate more efficiently.
22 Sample Question Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to continue to grow and divide in their nonspecialized state for long periods of time (e.g., months or years). Although the genes found within stem cells are very similar to each other, they differentiate into unique cell types (e.g., muscle cells, nerve cells, etc.) due to A. random segregation and proliferation. B. different patterns in their gene expression. C. meiotic division and fertilization. D. mutations in their genetic code.
23 Answer: B The specialization of cells in multicellular organisms is usually due to different patterns of gene expression rather than to differences of the genes themselves. However, what causes cells with similar genes to differentiate into unique cell types is not fully understood. It may be due to the presence of different environmental conditions that signal some genes to be expressed while other genes remain dormant. It may be due to internal regulators or any of a number of factors that researchers are currently studying.
24 Prokaryotes vs Eukaryotes Cells are classified into two main types based on the presence or absence of a nucleus and membrane-bound organelles Prokaryotic cells do not have a true nucleus or membrane-bound organelles Eukaryotic cells have a nucleus and organelles that are separated from the cytoplasm by membranes (includes plant and animal cells!!)
25 Sample Question Both eukaryotic cells and prokaryotic cells possess DNA and engage in genetic processes. Which of the following is true of their cellular genetics? A. Eukaryotic DNA is linear, whereas most prokaryotic DNA is circular. B. Eukaryotic cells generally require fewer genes to operate than prokaryotic cells. C. Prokaryotic DNA cannot be translated into proteins because of the lack of a nucleus. D. Eukaryotic and prokaryotic DNA use different genetic codes (i.e. nucleotides).
26 Answer: A Both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells possess DNA constructed from the same genetic code (i.e. the same four nucleotides - A, T, C, G). However, eukaryotic DNA is linear, organized into chromosomes, and packaged in nuclei for greater efficiency, whereas most prokaryotic DNA is circular and free-floating in the cytoplasm. There are a few cases in which prokaryotes possess linear DNA, but this is more the exception than the norm.

28 Sample Question Which of the following is true about cells? A. In general, eukaryotic cells do not have a true nucleus or membrane-bound organelles, whereas prokaryotic cells contain both a nucleus and organelles enclosed by membranes. B. Both eukaryotic cells and prokaryotic cells always contain both a true nucleus that is well-defined and organelles that are separated from the cytoplasm by membranes. C. In general, prokaryotic cells do not have a true nucleus or membrane-bound organelles, whereas eukaryotic cells contain both a nucleus and organelles enclosed by membranes. D. Neither prokaryotic cells nor eukaryotic cells ever contain both a true nucleus that is well-defined and organelles that are separated from the cytoplasm by membranes.
29 Answer: C Prokaryotic cells do not have a true nucleus or membrane-bound organelles. Prokaryotic organisms are usually unicellular. Eukaryotic cells have nuclei and organelles that are separated from the cytoplasm by membranes. Eukaryotic organisms are usually multicellular. In general, prokaryotic cells do not have a true nucleus or membrane-bound organelles, whereas eukaryotic cells contain both a nucleus and organelles enclosed by membranes.
30 Plant Cell vs. Animal Cell Copyright 2013 Edmentum - All rights reserved.
31 Sample Question Plant and animals cells are both eukaryotic, and thus they are similar in many ways. However, plant cells have some organelles that are not present in animal cells. Which of the following organelles is not found in animal cells? A. a large vacuole B. a functioning Golgi complex C. a membrane-covered endoplasmic reticulum D. a DNA-containing mitochondrion
32 Answer: A Plant cells, not animal cells, have a cell wall made of cellulose fibers to help the plant stand upright, chloroplasts where photosynthesis takes place, and a large vacuole. The plant's large vacuole fills with stored water. The pressure exerted on the plant's cell wall by the water-filled vacuole also helps the plant stand upright.
33 Sample Question Which of the following organelles plays a role in the disposal of cellular waste and is responsible for processing, sorting, and modifying proteins? A. plasma membrane B. ribosome C. Golgi apparatus D. mitochondrion
34 Answer: C The Golgi apparatus processes, sorts, and modifies proteins in a cell. In fact, the formation of complex biomolecules is possible because of the modifications that proteins undergo while they are moved through the Golgi apparatus. The Golgi apparatus also processes and transports materials, including wastes, out of the cell. Thus, the Golgi apparatus plays an important role in waste disposal.
35 Sample Question Membrane organelles known as contain enzymes specialized to break down ingested materials, secretions, and wastes. A. ribosomes B. chloroplasts C. vacuoles D. lysosomes
36 Answer: D Membrane organelles known as lysosomes contain enzymes specialized to break down ingested materials, secretions, and wastes. Lysosomes, along with the Golgi complex, are responsible for the disposal of cellular waste within a cell.
37 Sample Question Which of the following cell organelles contains instructions for making proteins? A. lysosome B. nucleus C. cell membrane D. vacuole
38 Answer: B Even though proteins are synthesized by ribosomes, the nucleus contains the instructions for making proteins. The DNA inside the nucleus directs the cell's growth and development by having the cell produce certain proteins when they are needed.
