Mastering Biology Chapter 6: Tour of a Cell by Mind Map: Mastering Biology Chapter 6: Tour of a Cell

1. Concept 6.4 Endomembrane System

1.3.2. 2. Endoplasmic Reticulum Storage, manufacturing, and making Smooth Rough Has bound ribosomes all over it makes protein for export makes more membrane Glycoproteins Enzymes make lipids(steroids) detoxifitions (add -OH) Drug resistance Store Ca+ Lacks ribosomes its outsuface phospholipids

1.3.3. 3. Golgi apparatus finishes, packages, sorts and ships Vesicles from ER to GA Stack of flat sacs cisternae each layer further modifies products final layer sorts into vesicles for transport proteins are modified and stored refines product of ER

1.3.4. 4. Lysosomes looks like a vacuoles digestive cells contain enzymes that break down chemical bonds sent to other places for cell specilaization Recycle organelles autophagy self destruct cell autolysis common in animals in plants sometimes???

1.3.5. 4. Vacuoles "little emptiness" actually full of water/ clear liquid Large vesicles often storage/organization food,water, toxins(process of eating) contractile vacuole squirting H20 out of cell

1.4. some & others connected vial travelling vesicles

4.7. Prokaryotes

4.7.1. Small, singles cell oragnisms Bacteria & Archaea

4.7.2. No membrane around DNA (nucleoid)

4.7.3. Lack an internal membrane compartment

4.8. Major difference
