Example text

List the functions of proteins. 8. Explain what a cell is. 9. List the functions of the following: • Nucleus • Mitochondria • Ribosomes • Golgi complex • Lysosomes • Peroxisomes 10. Describe how somatic cells reproduce. 11. Put the following processes into their chronological order: telophase, metaphase, anaphase, prophase. 12. Describe cytokinesis. 13. Describe the term ‘tissue’. 14. Name the four major types of tissues in the body. For each one give an example. 15. Name the major systems of the body and briefly describe their functions.

Keratinocytes – these make up about 90% of epidermal cells and they produce a protein called keratin. Keratin helps waterproof and protect the skin and the word itself, kerato, means ‘horny’. • Melanocytes – the word melan means ‘black’ and melanocytes produce a brown-black pigment called melanin. Melanin contributes to skin colour and absorbs ultraviolet light. Melanin granules actually form a protective layer over the nuclei of cells. This layer is only over the side of the nuclei that faces the surface of the skin and the melanin is like a sun-hat, protecting the nuclei from ultraviolet light.

Membranes 1. Membranes are thin, flexible sheets made up of different tissue layers. They cover surfaces, line body cavities and form protective sheets. There are two groups of membranes: epithelial and connective tissue. 2. Epithelial membranes consist of epithelial tissue and an underlying layer of connective tissue. They include mucous membranes which line body cavities that open directly to the exterior, for example, the hollow organs of the respiratory system; and serous membranes which line body cavities that do not open directly to the exterior, for example, the pleura.
