Cell Structure and Functions-Notes
The cell from Latin cella , meaning "small room"  is the basic structural, functional, and biological unit of all known organisms. A cell is the smallest unit of life. Cells are often called the "building blocks of life". The study of cells is called cell biology , cellular biology, or cytology. Cells consist of cytoplasm enclosed within a membrane , which contains many biomolecules such as proteins and nucleic acids. Organisms can be classified as unicellular consisting of a single cell such as bacteria or multicellular including plants and animals.
In this section the learners now expand their knowledge and learn the various cell structures and related functions. The roles of the organelles within the cells need to be introduced and relate structure and location of organelles to their function. Cells differ in size, shape and structure and therefore carry out specialised functions. Link this to tissues. The differences between plant and animal cells can be linked to Grade 9. The cell theory developed in by microbiologists Schleiden and Schwann describes the properties of cells. It is an explanation of the relationship between cells and living things.
Plant Anatomy pp Cite as. The cells of plants possess a variety of included structures; some of which are similar to eukaryotic animal cells, but others are quite distinctive. Many can be observed with a compound light microscope, but others are only resolved with the aid of electron microscopy. One of the great biological achievements of the recent twentieth century has been the development of electron microscopes, the appropriate specimen preparation for observations, and the determination of the structural, genetic, physiological and the elucidation of the role of microscopic and ultrastructural components. This chapter will describe the structure and function of cellular organelles and their respective roles in plant anatomy. Unable to display preview. Download preview PDF.
