Robert Hooke discovered cells in 1665
cell theory principle #1 all living things are made of cells
cell theory principle #2 cells are the basic units of life
cell theory principle #3 new cells are created from existing cells
eukaryotes cells found in animals and plants
prokaryotes cells found in bacteria
plant cells contain cell walls and chloroplasts
animal cells do not contain cell walls or chloroplasts
nucleus controls most of the cell's functions
cell membrane regulates what enters and exits the cell
ribosomes produce proteins
smooth endoplasmic reticulum makes cell membrane and modifies proteins
lysosomes break down food particles
chloroplasts perform photosynthesis
mitochondria perform cellular respiration
ATP has 3 phosphate groups
ADP has 2 phosphate groups
cellular respiration creates energy by adding a third phosphate group to ADP, turning it into ATP
photosynthesis using the sun's energy to produce food for the plant
cellular respiration equation C6H12O6 + 6O2 -> 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy
photosynthesis equation 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy -> C6H12O6 + 6O2
