Christian Brand 9-11-2008 Chapter 5 The Eukaryotic Microorganisms Eukaryotes Have a membrane surrounding DNA – Nucleus Have internal membrane-bound organelles Largr; 10-100 nanometers in diameter More complex structure Comprised of algae, protozoa, fungi, animals, and plants The History of Eukaryotes – Endosymbiotic Theory Eukaryotic cell evolved from an association between o Large anaerobic prokaryote o Oxygen requiring heterotroph (mitochondira) o Photosynthetic prokaryote (cyanobacteria) At the beginning they were eundigested pray or internal parasites Retained portion of DNA, ribosome’s (70S), and cytoplasmic membranes External Structures of Eukaryotic Cells o Flagella and Cillia – Projections used for cellular locomotion Flagella o Few and long o Filaments anchored to cell by basal body: no hook o May be single or multiple; o Generally found at one pole of cell o Do not rotate, but undulate rhythmically Cilia o Shorter and more numerous than flagella o Coordinated beating propels cells through their environment o Also used to move substances past the surface of the cell Internal structure of flagellum or cilium
