CELL BIOLOGY TOUR OF CELL 1. On the last page are unlabeled pictures of an animal and plant cell. Without looking at your textbook, you should be able to label the structures/organelles in each cell and describe the functions of each. 2. Single-celled organisms and individual cells within multicellular organisms can vary greatly in appearance as well as in the functions they perform. Nonetheless, each of these cells is alive and therefore must have some common characteristics. a. At a minimum, what structures or components must a cell contain to be alive? What is the function of each structure or component? b. What would you need to add to the cell you described above to make it a i. eukaryotic animal cell? ii. eukaryotic plant cell? 3. Each of the following problems involves a disorder in the function of an organelle or other cell structure. In each case, identify the organelle or structure involved, and indicate whether it is likely to be underactive or

A boy is diagnosed with adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), characterized by an inability of his body to break down very long chain fatty acids. e. A young man learns he is infertile because his sperm are nonmotile. 4. Assuming sensitivity of the biochemical test is not a problem what results would you expect to see on each of the following cellular structures using each of the following tests? Briefly state why for each positive test? Structures: rough endoplasmic reticulum, chromatin Tests: Sudan IV, Biuret, liquid iodine, ninhydrin 5. You observe a paramecium under the 40X objective. It takes up about half of the field of view. You know that the diameter of the 10X objective is 1.3mm. Below is a drawing of a paramecium. The ruler is in centimeters. Calculate the magnification of the drawing....
