Cell Structure

Cell Structure
And Function
Why are cells small?
• Metabolism determines size.
• Adequate surface area for exchange of
materials.
• Surface-area-to-volume ratio.
• Volume grows faster then surface area.
• In larger cells, rates of exchange are
inadequate to maintain cell.
Prokaryotic Cells Vs.
Eukaryotic Cells
• Prokaryotic Cells- lack a membrane
bound nucleus, and they are small (110um in diameter).
• Eukaryotic Cells-have membrane bound
nucleus, and they are larger (10-100um
in diameter).

Prokaryotic ->Eukaryotic Cells
• Endosymbiotic Theory= Cells living with
in cells, in a mutually benificial
relationship. (Symbiosis:)).
• Organelles have own DNA
• Organelles divide independently of the
cell they live in.
• Double membrane.

concentration to a lower concentration
until equilibrium is achieved.
• Movement down a concentration
gradient.

• Potential= stored energy
Why are we talking about
energy?
• 1.cells must acquire energy from
environment
• 2.cells can not make energy (energy
exists and can be transformed)
• 3in life energy transformations are
chemical
Different Kinds of Energy

Laws of Thermodynamics
• 1st law of thermodynamics: law of
conservation of energy.
• Energy can not be created nor
destroyed but it can be changed from
one form to another
Laws of Thermodynamics
• 2nd Law of Thermodynamics:
• Energy can not be changed from one
form to another with out a loss of
useable energy
Law of Thermodynamics
• 2nd law (restated):
• Every energy transformation makes the
universe more disordered.
• Entropy is a measure of disorder or
randomness
Energy Transformation
• Heat is useable energy
• Heat is the energy of random molecular
motion
• Release of heat increases entropy in
the universe
Cells and Entropy
• Energy transformation occurs in cells
• 2nd law: energy transformation in cells
increases the total entropy in the
universe
• Cells can be ordered
• Cellular processes require input of
energy from outside cell-> SUN
Linking metabolism and
Entropy
• Chemical reactions occur
spontaneously if it increases entropy in
the universe
• Standard for spontaneity -> free energy
• Free energy= amount of energy
available to do work following chemical
reactions
Types of Chemical reactions
• Exergonic: energy out, energy released
spontaneously(-)
• Endergonic: energy in energy absorbed
not spontaneous (+)
Exergonic vs Endergonic
• Many cellular processes are
endergonic(ex. Protein synthesis)
• Endergonic reactions require input of
energy.
• Energy released by exergonic reactions
drive endergonic reactions=coupled
reactions
ATP:Energy for Cells
• Energy released during break down of
ATP ( exergonic reaction) it helps drive
cellular endergonic reactions
How does ATP perform the
work?

one ATP to glutamic acid->
phosphorylation
• Phosphorylated glutamic acid is reactive
(less stable)than original molecule.

Enzymes and metabolism
• Enzymes are catalytic proteins that
speed up rate of chemical reaction in a
cell by lowering activation energy (EA)
barrier.
• Ea is the initial investment of energy for
starting a reaction-> energy require to
break bonds in reactant molecules
Enzyme and activation Energy
• Enzymes lower the Ea barrier by
bringing the substrates in contact w/
each other. Critical bonds in substances
providing favorable microenvironment,
direct participation with chemical
reaction
• Substrates= reactants in an enzymatic
reaction
Induced Fit
• Between Enzyme and its Substrate
• Active Site: undergoes change in shape
to fit more snugly around substrate

•
•
•
Substrate Concentration
Temperature
Ph
Rate of reaction
Enzyme Concentration
Control of enzymatic Activity
• Enzyme cofactors
• Non protein helpers (organic or inorganic)that
assist in catalytic activity or enzymes
• Coenzyme= organic cofactor that assists
enzymes, may accept, or contribute atoms to
a reaction
• Vitamins are required for synthesis of
coenzymes
• Phosphorylation=kinases add phosphate
groups to enzyme to activate them
Control of Enzyme Activity
• Enzyme inhibition= active enzyme
prevented from combining with
substrate.
• Examples: competitive inhibition
• Noncompetitive inhibition
• ( we see this with sulfamide drugs)
Control of Enzyme Activity
• Specific type of non competitive
inhibition: Feedback inhibition=when the
end product binds to the first enzyme of
a pathway.
