UNIT 1-Module 1-Ch1,3: Humans and the Microbial World, The Molecules of Life, Microscopy & Prokaryotic Cell Structure Diagram the typical prokaryotic cell structures External structures Filamentous appendages Flagella Pili Glycocalyx Capsule Slime layer Cell envelope (outer membrane) Cell wall Cell membrane Internal structure Cytoplasm Ribosomes Inclusions Nucleoid/chromosomes Actin cytoskeleton Endospore Gas vesicles Granules Diagram and describe the structure of the cytoplasmic membrane. Phospholipid bilayer embedded with proteins in which hydrophobic tails face in and hydrophilic tails face out that acts as a semipermeable membrane Its proteins serve numerous functions such as: Selective gates Sensors of environmental conditions Fluid mosaic model→ describes how proteins drift about in the lipid bilayer 13
UNIT 1-Module 1-Ch1,3: Humans and the Microbial World, The Molecules of Life, Microscopy & Prokaryotic Cell Structure Provides a site for functions such as: energy reactions, nutrient processing, synthesis, chemotaxis and anchor for many proteins involved in these functions. Bacteria and Archaea→ have the same general structure with some minor differences such as distinct different lipid compositions. Archaea→ lipid tails are connected to glycerol by a different type of chemical linkage and are not fatty acids
