    states that a membrane is a fluid structure with a “mosaic” of various proteins embedded in it
  42. 3. Cell-Cell Recognition
    Cells recognize each other by binding to surface molecules, often containing carbohydrates, on the extracellular surface of the plasma membrane
  43. 4. Hugh Davson and James Danielli
    • * proposed a sandwich model in which the phospholipid bilayer lies between two layers of globular proteins
    • * Later studies found problems with this model, particularly the placement of membrane proteins, which have hydrophilic and hydrophobic regions
    • * In 1972, S. J. Singer and G. Nicolson proposed that the membrane is a mosaic of proteins dispersed within the bilayer, with only the hydrophilic regions exposed to water
  44. 5. The Fluidity of Membranes
    • * Phospholipids in the plasma membrane can move within the bilayer
    • * Most of the lipids, and some proteins, drift laterally
    • * Rarely does a molecule flip-flop transversely across the membrane
  45. 6. Proteins
    determine most of the membrane’s specific functions
  46. 7. Hydrophobic
    • nonpolar) molecules, such as hydrocarbons, can dissolve in the lipid bilayer and pass through the membrane rapidly
    • is the tendency for molecules to spread out evenly into the available space
  47. 8. Plasma membrane
    • * is the boundary that separates the living cell from its surroundings
    • * The plasma membrane exhibits selective permeability, allowing some substances to cross it more easily than others
    • * Membranes have been chemically analyzed and found to be made of proteins and lipids
    • * Scientists studying the plasma membrane reasoned that it must be a phospholipid bilayer
    • 9. selective permeability
    • allowing some substances to cross the plasma membrane more easily than others
  48. 10. Phospholipids

    • * CO2, simple diffusion
    • * Glucose, facilitated transport in most tissues
    • * H+, active transport
    • * O2, simple diffusion

    • * Small molecules and water enter or leave the cell through the lipid bilayer or
  54. 16. Channel proteins
    have a hydrophilic channel that certain molecules or ions can use as a tunnel. Are also called aquaporins facilitate the passage of water
  55. 17. Carrier proteins
    bind to molecules and change shape to shuttle them across the membrane
  56. 18. Are transport proteins specific? Give an example to support your response.
    Yes for the substance it moves. Different transport move different things.
  57. 19. Diffusion
    • * is the tendency for molecules to spread out evenly into the available space
    • * Although each molecule moves randomly, diffusion of a population of molecules may be directional
    • * At dynamic equilibrium, as many molecules cross the membrane in one direction as in the other
    • 20. Concentration gradient
    • * the region along which the density of a chemical substance increases or decreases
    • * No work must be done to move substances down the concentration gradient
  58. 21. Passive transport
    The diffusion of a substance across a biological solute moves down its concentration gradient, and the transport requires no energy membrane no energy is expended by the cell to make it happen
  59. 22. Osmosis
    • * is the diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane
    • * Water diffuses across a membrane from the region of lower solute concentration to the region of higher solute concentration until the solute concentration is equal on both sides
  60. 23. Tonicity
    is the ability of a surrounding solution to cause a cell to gain or lose water
  61. 24. Isotonic solution
    Solute concentration is the same as that inside the cell; no net water movement across the plasma membrane
  62. 25. Hypertonic solution
    Solute concentration is greater than that inside the cell; cell loses water
  63. 26. Hypotonic solution
    Solute concentration is less than that inside the cell; cell gains water
  64. 27. Plant cell in Tonicity
    • * (Hypotonic solution) swells until the wall opposes uptake; the cell is now turgid (firm)
    • * (Isotonic) the cell becomes flaccid (limp), and the plant may wilt
    • * (hypertonic) plant cells lose water; eventually, the membrane pulls away from the wall, a usually lethal effect called plasmolysis (Shrivel)
    • 28. why a carrot left on the counter overnight becomes limp.
    • due to the relatively low humidity around the counter, water would diffuse (via osmosis) out of the carrot, down the concentration gradient, this makes the carrot flaccid (limp) as plasmolysis occurs due to the lack of water.
  65. 29. facilitated diffusion
    • * transport proteins speed the passive movement of molecules across the plasma membrane
    • * Channel proteins provide corridors that allow a specific molecule or ion to cross the membrane
    • * Channel proteins include Aquaporins, for facilitated diffusion of water
    • * Ion channels that open or close in response to a stimulus (gated channels)
    • * Facilitated diffusion is still passive because the solute moves down its concentration gradient, and the transport requires no energy
    • 30. Active transport
    • * moves substances against their concentration gradients
    • * requires energy, usually in the form of ATP
    • * is performed by specific proteins embedded in the membranes
    • * Active transport allows cells to maintain concentration gradients that differ from their surroundings
    • 31. sodium-potassium pump
    • is one type of active transport system, it exchanges Na+ for K + across the membrane of animal cells.
  66. 32. adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
    a chemical used throughout the body to transfer and hold energy. It is made of a nucleotide (adenine).
  67. 33. electrogenic pump
    • * is a transport protein that generates voltage across a membrane
    • * help store energy that can be used for cellular work
  68. 34. proton pump
    The main electrogenic pump of plants, fungi, and bacteria is a
  69. 35. Cotransport
    occurs when active transport of a solute indirectly drives transport of other solutes
  70. 36. bulk via vesicles
    How large molecules, such as polysaccharides and proteins crosses the membrane (requires energy)
  71. 37. exocytosis
    • * transport vesicles migrate to the membrane, fuse with it, and release their contents
    • * Many secretory cells use exocytosis to export their products
  72. 38. endocytosis
    • * the cell takes in macromolecules by forming vesicles from the plasma membrane
    • * Endocytosis is a reversal of exocytosis, involving different proteins
  73. 39. There are three types of endocytosis
    • * Phagocytosis (“cellular eating”)
    • * Pinocytosis (“cellular drinking”)
    • * Receptor-mediated endocytosis
  74. 40. phagocytosis
    a cell engulfs a particle in a vacuole
  75. 41. pinocytosis, molecules are taken up when extracellular fluid is “gulped” into tiny vesicles
  76. 42. receptor-mediated endocytosis
    binding of ligands to receptors triggers vesicle formation
