                          Chapter Summary
Cell Membrane and Associated Structures
I. The structure of the cell (plasma) membrane is described by a fluid-mosaic model.
    A. The membrane is composed predominately of a double layer of phospholipids.

    B. The membrane also contains proteins most of which span its entire width.
II. Some cells move by extending pseudopods; cilia and flagella protrude from the cell
    membrane of some specialized cells.
III. In the process of exocytosis, invaginations of the cell membrane allow the cells to
    take up molecules from the external environment.
    A. In phagocytosis, the cell extends pseudopods, which eventually fuse together to create a
       food vacuole; pinocytosis involves the formation of a narrow furrow in the membrane
       which eventually fuses.
    B. Receptor-mediated endocytosis requires the interaction of a specific molecule in the
       extracellular environment with a specific receptor protein in the cell membrane.
    C. Exocytosis is the reverse of endocytosis and is a process that allows the cell to secrete its
                        Chapter Summary
Cytoplasm and Its Organelles
I. Microfilaments and microtubules produce a cytoskeleton, which aids movements of
    organelles within a cell.
II. Lysosomes contain digestive enzymes and are responsible for the elimination of
    structures and molecules within the cell and for digestion of the contents of the
    phagocytic food vacuoles.
III. Mitochondria serve as the major sites for energy production within the cell. They
    have an outer membrane with a smooth contour and an inner membrane with
    infoldings called cristae.
IV. The endoplasmic reticulum is a system of membranous tubules in the cell.
    A. The rough endoplasmic reticulum is covered with ribosomes and is involved in protein
    B. The smooth endoplasmic reticulum provides a site for many enzymatic reactions and, in
       skeletal muscles, serves to store Ca2+.
                         Chapter Summary
Cell Nucleus
I. The cell nucleus is surrounded by a double-layered nuclear membrane. At some
    points, the two layers are fused by nuclear pore complexes that allow for the passage
    of molecules
II. Proteins destined for secretion are produced in ribosomes located on the rough
    endoplasmic reticulum and enter the cisternae of this organelle.
III. Secretory proteins move from the rough endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi
    complex, which consists of a stack of membranous sac.
    A. The Golgi complex modifies the proteins it contains, separates different proteins, and
       packages them in vesicles.

    B. Secretory vesicles from the Golgi apparatus fuse with the cell membrane and release
       their products by exocytosis.
                          Chapter Summary
Diffusion and Osmosis
I. Diffusion is the net movement of molecules or ions from regions of higher to regions
    of lower concentration.
    A. This is a type of passive transport, energy is provided by the thermal energy of the
       molecules, not by cellular metabolism.
    B. Net diffusion stops when the concentration is equal on both sides of the membrane.
II. The rate of diffusion is dependent on a variety of factors.
    A. The rate of diffusion depends on the concentration difference across the two sides of the
    B. The rate depends on the permeability of the cell membrane to the diffusing substance.
    C. The rate depends on the temperature of the solution.
    D. The rate of diffusion through a membrane is also directly proportional to the surface area
       of the membrane, which can be increased by such adaptations as microvilli.
                         Chapter Summary
Diffusion and Osmosis
III. Simple diffusion is the type of passive transport in which small molecules and
    inorganic ions move through the cell membrane.
    A. Inorganic ions, such as Na+ and K+ pass through specific channels in the membrane.
    B. Steroid hormones and other lipids can pass by simple diffusion directly through the
       phospholipid layers of the membrane.
                        Chapter Summary
Diffusion and Osmosis
IV. Osmosis is the simple diffusion of solvent (water) through a
  membrane that is more permeable to the solvent than it is to the
A. Water moves from the solution that is more dilute to the solution that has a higher
   solute concentration.
B. Osmosis depends on a difference in total solute concentration, not on the chemical
   nature of the solute.
         1. The concentration of total solute, in moles per kilogram (liter) of water, is
            measured in osmolality units.
         2. The solution with the higher osmolality has the higher osmotic pressure.
         3. Water moves by osmosis from the solution of lower osmolality and osmotic
            pressure to the solution of higher osmolality and osmotic pressure.
                        Chapter Summary
Diffusion and Osmosis
C. Solutions that have the same osmotic pressure as plasma (such as 0.9% NaCl and 5%
   glucose) are said to be isotonic to plasma.
    1. Solutions with a lower osmotic pressure are hypotonic; those with a higher
       osmotic pressure are hypertonic.
    2. Cells in a hypotonic solution gain water and swell; those in a hypertonic solution
       lose water and shrink (crenate).
D. The osmolality and osmotic pressure of the plasma is detected by osmoreceptors in
   the hypothalamus of the brain and maintained within a normal range by the action of
   antidiuretic hormone (ADH) released from the posterior pituitary.
    1. Increased osmolality of the blood stimulates the osmoreceptors.
    2. Stimulation of the osmoreceptors causes thirst and triggers the secretion of
       antidiuretic hormone (ADH) from the posterior pituitary.
    3. ADH promotes water retention by the kidneys, which serves to maintain a
       normal blood volume and osmolality.
                         Chapter Summary
Carrier-Mediated Transport
I. The passage of glucose, amino acids, and other polar molecules through the
    cell membrane is mediated by carrier proteins in the cell membrane.
    A. Carrier-mediated transport exhibits the properties of specificity, competition, and
    B. The transport rate of molecules such as glucose reaches a maximum when the
       carriers are saturated. This maximum rate is called the transport maximum, or
       T m.
II. The transport of molecules such as glucose from the side of higher to the
    side of lower concentration by means of membrane carriers is called
    facilitated diffusion.
    A. Like simple diffusion, this is passive transport, cellular energy is not required.
    B. Unlike simple diffusion, facilitated diffusion displays the properties of specificity,
       competition, and saturation.
                       Chapter Summary
Carrier-Mediated Transport
III. The active transport of molecules and ions across a membrane
    requires the expenditure of cellular energy (ATP).
A. In active transport, carriers move molecules or ions from the side of lower to
   the side of higher concentration.
B. One example of active transport is the action of the Na+/K+ pump.
    1. Sodium is more concentrated on the outside of the cell, whereas potassium is
       more concentrated on the inside of the cell.
    2. The Na+/K+ pump helps to maintain these concentration differences by
       transporting Na+ out of the cell and K+ into the cell.
