    1. Question of the Day: Name the movement of water across a plasma membrane

    2. Review Homework

    3. Overview of cell transport

      1. The plasma membrane is semipermeable That means that some things can get through the membrane, not not everything

      2. The lipid bilayer keeps out

        1. highly charged, polar molecules, and

        2. large molecules.

      3. Channel proteins are the passageways for

        1. highly charged, polar molecules, and

        2. large molecules.

      4. Diffusion is the process where particles move from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration.

        1. Diffusion occurs because molecules always move, whether in water or in air.

        2. As the molecules move, they bounce against each other, pushing each other.

        3. Also, when particles are crowded, they tend to push away from each other.

        4. Diffusion stops when equilibrium has been reached.

          1. The concentration of the particles is equal through the area.

      5. Osmosis is a special case of diffusion.

        1. Even If a particle can not pass through a semipermeable membrane, equilibrium must be reached.

        2. So water will move through the membrane to the side were the particles lie.

        3. Your kidneys work through osmosis.

      1. Hypotonic

    1. Question:

      1. What major molecules make up a cell?

        1. Water: solvent, the environment inside of cells, and the environment surrounding cells.

        2. Proteins: structure, movement, breaking down other molecules, and building up new molecules

        3. Nucleic Acids: instructions for making proteins

        4. Lipids: barriers and boundaries

    2. Overview

      1. Cells have a boundary.

        1. Made of lipids

      1. Cells have organelles

        1. Provide the cell with organization

  2. What is the structure of the plasma membrane?

    1. Using your pre-reading strategies read, and then takes notes from pages 55-56 that answers the previous question.

NOTES:

  1. What is the structure of the plasma membrane?

    1. The plasma membrane is the outer surface of the cell.

      1. It is liquid

      2. It has proteins of different sizes.

    2. The plasma membrane is made of phospholipids and proteins

      1. Phospholipids are made of a phosphate group and lipids.

      2. Phospholipids have a head and two tails.

      3. The head is polar

      4. The tail region is nonpolar

      5. Phospholipids are arranged in two layers, with a nonpolar middle.

    3. The plasma membrane is a lipid bilayer, and it is fluid (moves). There are passageways through the plasma membrane.

      1. There are passageways through the plasma membrane.

      2. The passageways are proteins.

      3. Proteins go through the plasma membrane.

    4. The plasma membrane is a barrier. Proteins in the plasma membrane communicate with the cell's environment.

      1. Cell surface proteins

    5. The plasma membrane has several types of proteins

      1. Marker proteins

        1. Identifies the cell.
