Unformatted text preview: Stanford Exam II Learning Objectives • Discover the best ways for you to engage and learn course materials • Know: – Unique features of prokaryotic cells – What Archaea are – that both plants and animals are made up of eukaryotic cells, though these cells differ in various ways (what are these differences?) – the different organelles and their basic functions – what the different cytoskeletal polymers are – the different types of cell junctions • Understand: – the principles of microscopy (magnification, resolution), and basic microscopy techniques – the difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells – the endomembrane system: what are the components, what is the purpose of this system, how are materials transported through it? – the basic differences between the different cytoskeletal fibers, and their general roles in the cell – what a motor protein is – The basic functions of cell junctions – what ECM is, and why it is important • Know : – the general functions that a membrane protein could have – that membranes have a sidedness – in general, what types of substances the membrane itself is permeable and impermeable to – what hypotonic, hypertonic and isotonic solutions are – what endocytosis and exocytosis are, and the types of endocytosis • Understand: – that cellular membranes are phospholipid bilayers – the fluid mosaic model and what it tells us about membranes – how unsaturated and saturated phospholipids affect membrane fluidity – the role of cholesterol in membranes – the role of glycolipids and glycoproteins in membranes, and where they are found – selective permeability – diffusion – what passive and active transport are – what facilitated diffusion is – osmosis – the role of the sodium/potassium ATPase and how it works – what membrane potential is – what coupled transport is Stanford...
