1.1 THE CELL (micro-anatomy)

  1. Bonus stuff to help you

  2. Most common phrasing errors
    • Nucleolus consists of DNA
    • Lysosomes contain lysozymes
    • The nuclear envelop is a double membrane
    • Mitochondria are sites of respiration and they produce energy

  3. Exam tips
    • Centrioles are not found in most plants
    • Transport vesicles are different from secretory vesicles
    • Cisterna and crista refers to structures in different organelles
    • When asked to label, check arrow # and give appropriate singular or plural forms
    • Glycosylation of proteins begin in the RER vs. lipids in GA. What happens to the glycoproteins in GA is further/final chemical modifications as well as packing and sorting
    • It is not important to contrast animal and plant cells anymore but one should understand and be able to describe what structures makes plants unique e.g. chloroplasts and cellulose
