Cells are the basic units/building blocks of the body B. Cells account for the shape, organization, and construction of the body II. Bodily cells have much in common, but also differ widely A. Differences 1. Size 2. Shape/structure and function B. Cell components 1. Cell membrane a. Composition: double layer of phospholipids [aka, plasma membrane] with large globular protein molecules scattered throughout b. Regulation of substance passage into and out of cell i. Diffusion: passive movement of substances from regions of high concentration to regions of low concentration a'. Osmosis: passive movement of water molecules across a semi-permeable membrane ii. Filtration: forced movement of fluid across a membrane whose pores restrict the passage of solutes based on their size iii. Carrier-mediated transport: movement of a substance across the cell membrane by means of a protein carrier a'. Facilitated diffusion: passive movement along a concentration gradient
