Characteristics of Living Human Organism Basic Life Processes - Distinguish living from non-living things Six important life processes -

Metabolism o Sum of all the chemical process that occur in the body o ______________or the breakdown of complex chemical substances into simpler components o ______________ or the building up of complex chemical substances from smaller, simpler components


Responsiveness o Body’s ability to detect and respond to changes o Decrease in body temperature o Responding to sound o Nerve (electrical signals) and muscle cells (contracting)


Movement o Motion of the whole body o Organs, cells, and tiny subcellular structures o Leg muscles move the body from one place to another


Growth o Increase in body size o Due to an increase in existing cells, number of cells, or both o In bone growth materials between cells increase


Differentiation o Development of a cell from an unspecialized to specialized state o Cells have specialized structures and functions that differ from precursor cells o Stem cells give rise to cells that undergo differentiation


Reproduction o Formation of new cells (growth, repair, or replacement) o Production of a new individual Clinical Connection: Autopsy Postmortem (after death) examination of the body and internal organs Several uses: - Determine the cause of death - Identify diseases not detected during life - Determine the extent of injuries and contribution to death - Hereditary conditions

________________________ A condition of equilibrium (balance) in the body’s internal environment Dynamic condition Narrow range is compatible with maintaining life Example Blood glucose levels range between 70 and 110 mg of glucose/dL of blood Homeostasis and Body Fluids Maintaining the volume and composition of body fluids are important Body fluids are defined as dilute, watery solutions containing dissolved chemicals inside or outside of the cell Intracellular Fluid (ICF) - Fluid within cells Extracellular Fluid (ECF) - Fluid outside cells Interstitial fluid - is ECF between cells and tissues ECF and Body Location Blood Plasma - ECF within blood vessels Lymph - ECF within lymphatic vessels Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) - ECF in the brain and spinal cord Synovial fluid - ECF in joints Aqueous humor and vitreous body - ECF in eyes Interstitial Fluid and Body Function - Cellular function depends on the regulation of composition of interstitial fluid - Body’s internal environment - Composition of interstitial fluid changes as it moves o Movement back and forth across capillary walls provide nutrients (glucose, oxygen, ions) to tissue cells and removes waste (carbon dioxide) Control of Homeostasis Homeostasis is constantly being disrupted Physical insults - Intense heat or lack of oxygen Changes in the internal environment - Drop in blood glucose due to lack of food Physiological stress - Demands of work or school Disruptions - Mild and temporary (balance is quickly restored) - Intense and Prolonged (poisoning or severe infections) Feedback System Cycle of events Body is monitored and re-monitored Each monitored variable is termed a controlled condition Three Basic components 1. ________________ 2. ____________________ 3. _______________________

Packing of DNA into a Chromosome of a Dividing Cell Overview of Gene Expression – Transcription & Translation • • • • •

Somatic Cell Division – Mitosis Copy 3 billion base pairs of DNA The cell cycle is a sequence of events in which a body cell duplicates its contents and divides in two Human somatic cells contain 23 pairs of chromosomes (total = 46) The two chromosomes that make up each pair are called homologous chromosomes (homologs) Somatic cells contain two sets of chromosomes and are called diploid cells

Cell Division • Interphase - the cell is not dividing • the cell replicates its DNA o - consists of three phases, G1, S, and G2, replication of DNA occurs in the S phase Mitotic phase consists of a nuclear division (mitosis) and a cytoplasmic division (cytokinesis) to form two identical cells The Cell Cycle o • Viral Cancer Causing Genes • DNA Replication • Nuclear Division: Mitosis • Prophase - the chromatin fibers change into chromosomes • Metaphase - microtubules align the centromeres of the chromatid pairs at the metaphase plate • Anaphase - the chromatid pairs split at the centromere and move to opposite poles of the cell; the chromatids are now called chromosomes • Telophase - two identical nuclei are formed around the identical sets of chromosomes now in their chromatin form Cytoplasmic Division: Cytokinesis • Division of a cell’s cytoplasm to form two identical cells • Usually begins in late anaphase • The plasma membrane constricts at its middle forming a cleavage furrow • The cell eventually splits into two daughter cells • Interphase begins when cytokinesis is complete Reproductive Cell Division • During sexual reproduction each new organism is the result of the union of two gametes (fertilization), one from each parent

______________________- reproductive cell division that occurs in the gonads (ovaries and testes) that produces gametes with half the number of chromosomes • Haploid cells - gametes contain a single set of 23 chromosomes • Fertilization restores the diploid number of chromosomes (46) • Reproductive Cell Division • Meiosis occurs in two successive stages: meiosis I and meiosis II • Each of these two stages has 4 phases: prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase

Summary - Meiosis I begins with a diploid cell and ends with two cells having the haploid number of chromosomes; in Meiosis II, each of the two haploid cells divides, the net result is four haploid gametes that are genetically different from the original diploid starting cell •
