IB SL Biology: Cells
1 Cell Theory
1.1 1. All living organisms are composed of cells
1.1.1 2. Cells are the smallest unit of life 3. Cells come from pre-existing cells
1.2 Proof
1.2.1 One sealed soup container: no decay
1.2.2 Other open soup container: decay
1.2.3 Bacteria in air
2 Multicellular organisms
2.1 Differentiation
2.1.1 Cells specialise in different functions Genes needed to specialise Once specialised, cell is committed
2.2 Exhibits emergent properties
2.2.1 More than sum of parts - complex interations
3 Unicellular
3.1 Single cell = all functions of life
3.1.1 Amoeba
3.1.2 Euglena
3.1.3 Chlorella
4 Stem Cells
4.1 Retain ability to differentiate along different pathways
4.2 Small number of embryonic cells still retained by adult body
4.2.1 Potential for tissue repair Cord blood for leukaemia Skin grafts Heart regeneration Therapeutic use: bone marrow transplant as a result of chemotherapy
5 Cell Size
5.1 SA:Vol ratio
5.1.1 Smaller animals - poor Heat loss - big issue
5.1.2 Bigger animals - good
