Flashcards in B1.1.2 Bacterial cells Deck (20):
Are Bacteria an unicellular organism or an multicellular organism?
What organisms are the smallest living organisms?
What are the seven life processes which every cell can carry out?
Movement, reproduction, sensitivity, growth, respiration, excretion and nutririon
Give an example of an Prokaryotic bacterial cell.
Escherichia coil (E. coil)
What does Escherichia coil (E. coil) cause?
what does Streptococcus bacteria cause?
Where is Streptomyces bacteria found?
In the soil
Which subcellular structures do prokaryotic cells contain?
A cell wall, Genetic material, cell memrane, cytoplasm
B1.1.1 explains the functions of the subcellular structures in prokaryotic cells.
Okay i will look because i am a good scientific pinapple :)
What are the extra subcellular structures that some types of bacterial cells contain?
Flagella, pili, slime capsule, plasmid
What is the singular for flagella?
What is the function of flagella?
To allow the cell to move through liquids
Flagella has a '____-____' structure
Pili are tiny '____-___' structures
What are the two functions of the pili?
It enables the cell to attach to structures (such as the cells that line your digestive tract). And also used to transfer genetic material between bacteria
Is the slime capsule outside or inside the cell wall?
What are the two functions of the slime capsule?
It protects the bacterium from dying out and from poisonous substances. And it also helps the bacterium to stick to smooth surfaces
What is the plasmid?
A circular piece of DNA
What is the function of the plasmid?
It is used to store extra genes
