Description

The fundamentals of these subj ects cannot be included in a book of this type. Chloroplasts Cellular Organelles. Издание: иллюстрированное.

The fundamentals of these subj ects cannot be included in a book of this type. However, to provide a meaningful description of how the chloroplast works, Le., what the mechanisms of photosynthetic reactions are, the subj ect must be dealt with at the molecular level. Living systems are chemical systems, and the importance of understanding these systems at the molecular level cannot be overstated.

Chloroplasts are major organelles. They contain green pigments that make plants green. Chloroplasts do lots of things, but their main function is photosynthesis. Plant cells, and some protists have chloroplasts, though animal and fungal cells lack them

Part of the Cellular Organelles book series (CORG). Cite this chapter as: Hoober . 1984) Development of Chloroplasts Structure and Function. Springer, Boston, MA. As a developmental system, the chloroplast has several exceptional features. First, its developmental path spans a wide structural range, from the extremely primitive to the complex. During the process, a large amount of the eventual major membrane system in the plant cell is produced.

It should be viewed as a beginning of the study of chloroplasts and not as an end. In keeping with an introductory approach, abbreviations generally have not been used, so that substance is not replaced by symbol.

Cellular Biology: Organelles, Structure and Function covers the basics of biology on a cellular level. FOR AGES 2 - 8 This book introduces the fun and exciting topic of Cellular Biology to young readers! The Super Smart Science Series was started as a way to get younger kids to become confident in topics that seem difficult, like Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy, Neurology, etc. I was inspired by a WONDERFUL professor at the University of Texas at Austin, Dr. Iverson.

2 Cellular structure that regulates what enters and leaves the cell. 3 Organelles that store materials such as water, salts, and carbohydrates. They may occupy a large space within plant cells. 4 Helps to support, strengthen and protect the cell. Not found in animal cells. 5 Photosynthetic organelles found in many plant cells only. 6 A system of channels that transport proteins through the cell. 7 The liquid inside the cell that all the organelles are suspended in. 8 Organelles which provide cells with energy by using sugar as a fuel source.

In cell biology, an organelle is a specialized subunit within a cell that has a specific function. Organelles are either separately enclosed within their own lipid bilayers (also called membrane-bound organelles) or are spatially distinct functional units without a surrounding lipid bilayer (non-membrane bound organelles). The name organelle comes from the idea that these structures are parts of cells, as organs are to the body, hence organelle, the suffix -elle being a diminutive

This monograph is intended to provide an overview of the structure, function, and development of the chloroplast. It should be viewed as a beginning of the study of chloroplasts and not as an end. In keeping with an introductory approach, abbreviations generally have not been used, so that substance is not replaced by symbol. The principal aim has been to provide a teaching tool to introduce students to the major characteristics of the chloroplast, with as much emphasis on mech­ anisms as possible at this level. It was written for students with an advanced college level education in biology and chemistry who also have some knowl­ edge of biochemistry. The fundamentals of these subj ects cannot be included in a book of this type. However, to provide a meaningful description of how the chloroplast works, Le. , what the mechanisms of photosynthetic reactions are, the subj ect must be dealt with at the molecular level. Living systems are chemical systems, and the importance of understanding these systems at the molecular level cannot be overstated. Therefore, although attempts were made to keep the chemistry at a relatively simple level, occasionally statements are made that can be understood only with a sufficient background knowledge of chemistry. It is important for students to realize in broad outline form the functions of the chloroplast and where its functions fit into the scheme of life.
