0304231 Cell Biology (Credit Hours:2)

CourseDescription

Prerequisite:0304102
This course deals with the cell as a unit of structure of all living organisms. It includes: Cell theory. Principles and technology of microscopy, biological membranes: Ultrastructure and function and their role in controlling cellular responses to cell matrix. Intracellular compartments:  Endoplasmic reticulum, golgi complex, lysosomes and peroxisoms ultrastructure and function. Energy transformers:  Mitochondria and chloroplasts. The course concentrates also on the nuclear ultrastructure. Chromatin and DNA packaging. Nucleolus and ribosome‚Äôs biosynthesis.  Cell cycle and mechanism of cell division.  Also studies cellular junctions. Adhesions and extracellular structures.  Cell-to-substratum interactions. Transient differentiations associated with surface activity.  Motile cell processes.  Plant cell wall and plasmodesmata and bacterial cell wall.  The course investigates also the structural elements of cytoskeleton, microtubules, microfilaments and intermediate filaments ultrastructure and functions.  Cellular movement: motility and contractility and cell-to cell signaling.  The course deals also with cellular aspects of cancer, aging and death.
