Dr. Lisa Summer 2011 1 (1) Review & read Cells & Prokaryotic Cell Structure in Chapter 4. Review & read Membrane Transport on pages 195-200 (only) in Chapter 7. Study the questions below in study groups. Do multiple choice questions (Chapter 4: 1-12, 14-16, Chapter 7: 8-10), and the concept/writing to learn questions (Chapter 4: 1-17, Chapter 7: 6-8) at the end of the chapter. 1. What are the three main components of the cell theory? How did Schwann, Scheiden & Virchow contribute to this theory? 2. Describe the main differences between a prokaryotic cell and a eukaryotic cell? 3. What is the difference between cell morphology and cell arrangement? Why are they important when first investigating an unknown microbe? What do the following terms mean: cocci, bacilli, spiralla, vibrio, star, square, diplo, strepto, staphylo, sarcinae? 4. What is the structure, location & purpose of a glycocalyx? What types of cells have one? Be able to distinguish between a slime layer and a capsule. Relate this to the formation of microbial biofilms (hospitals, dialysis tubing, dental decay, sewage treatment). 5. What is the function of a prokaryotic flagellum? Use terms like chemo-, photo-, magnetotaxis. How does its structure differ from that of a eukaryote? What are the three main components of a bacterial flagellum? What is the main structural protein? How can H flagellar antigens be used to distinguish pathogenic serovars? What are the four main arrangements of flagella found in prokaryotic cells? What is the difference between a flagellum and an axial filament? What types of cells have axial filaments? 6. What is the structural difference between fimbriae & pili? Which is important for attachment to tissues & which for genetic transfer between microbes? 7.
