Transcript of Fat Cell

Cell Project The Animal Cell This is what an animal cell looks like... We will go on to explain all the organelles inside an animal cell. The Organelles in the animal cell are.. 1. Cell Membrane
5.Nucleus 6.Nuclear Membrane
9.Golgi Apparatus
10.Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) Now you are probably wondering what all these organelles do.....
Cell Membrane -The Cell Membrane is like the skin around the cell, It holds everything together. Nuclear Membrane - The Nuclear Membrane has little pores so different materials can go in and out of the cell. Diseases that fat cells lead to: The fat cell can lead to many diseases, diseases
are prone to start infections but the worst
diseases and infections that fat cells could lead to are Enlarged Heart and Diabetes.
Ribosomes - The Ribosomes are the bumps on the ER (Endoplasmic Reticulum). It also puts the proteins together.
Lysosomes - Lysosomes are also known as the suicide sac. It contains something called enzymes that speed up reactions. Cytoplasm - The Cytoplasm is a gel- like substance that supports the other organelles Nucleus - The Nucleus is the organelle that control's the cells activities. It is also the brain of the cell. The Nucleus contains DNA.
Nucleolus - small structure in the nucleus, It is small and hard. It transports proteins and it contains proteins.
Mitochondria - The Mitochondria is the battery of the cell. It is called the battery because it produce proteins (energy) like a battery does.
Golgi Apparatus - The Golgi Apparatus stores the proteins in the cell and it also makes the lysosomes. Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) - The Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum Transports proteins, The Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum Contains something called RNA (needed to make proteins) -Did you know fact cells help tumors grow?
-Obese people, compared with normal-weight folks, are 83 % more likely to develop kidney disease.
-Obesity costs the workforce an estimated $73.1 billion per year.
-In the 25 years between 1987 and 2010, the number of Americans diagnosed with diabetes almost tripled to 20.9 million.
-Approximately 12.5 million children and adolescents aged 2-19 (17%) are obese. The Fat cell Diabetes Enlarged Heart By Joel and Allie :) still listening????? Still listening? selena gomez is hot Enlarged Heart is a condition where your heart becomes larger (stronger) because it is being over worked, fat cells cause enlarged heart. Diabetes is a disorder where the pancreas isn't making enough insulin. Too many fat cells (over eating) is the main cause of diabetes Interesting facts about the fat cell! The Fat cell. All of the organelles in the fat cell are... 8. Ribosomes
9. Cytoplasm
10. Cell Membrane
11. Flagella
12. Cilia 11.Vacuoles
13.Flagellum Vacuoles - Vacuoles are little bads (sacs). The bags (or sacs) store all of the cells food, water, and waist. Cilium - Cilium is an organelle that is little
hairs on the cell. It helps the cell finds its way around. Flagellum - Flagellum is a long tail coming out of the cell.
It allows the cell to move (swim) in liquids. Estimates of Organelles. Mitochondria - We predict that there are many Mitochondria because the fat cells are mostly used for energy and Mitochondria.
Lysosomes - We predict that there are many lysosomes because the fat cell can easily be destroyed (That is how you can lose weight).
Smooth ER - We predict that there are may Smooth ER as well because It needs to transport the proteins.
Rough ER - We predict that there are many Rough ER too. Not only does the Rough ER transport proteins but it contains the proteins.
Golgi app. - We predict that there are some Golgi apparatus because it does make the lysosomes but that is all it does.
Nucleus - We predict that is 1 nucleus because there is only one nucleus in the fat cell. Also because a cell only needs one nucleus.
Ribosomes - We predict that there are many Ribosomes because they put proteins together and as we have said the fat cell is used for its energy.
Cytoplasm - We predict that there is many cytoplasm because it has to hold all of the organelles and there is a lot more than 2 to 5.
Cell Membrane - We predict that there is only 1 cell membrane because there is only one skin around the cell.
Flagella - We predict that there is only one flagella in a fat cell because it doesn't need to move.
Cilia - We predict that there are many cilia's because there is a lot of fluid around the fat cell. About the fat cell. Now we went over all the fat cells, you might be wondering what really is a fat cell. There are actually two types of fat cells. White fat cells and brown fat cells. The fat cell that we will have talked about is the white fat cell. The white fat cell is the most common fat cell. There are very few brown fat cells. 1. Mitochondria
2. Lysosomes
3. Smooth ER
4. Rough ER
5. Golgi Apparatus
6. Nucleus After you eat a meal, or even a chocolate bar, all the food travels through the body and makes a hormone called insulin. Insulin does many things, like absorbing acids and it breaks things down into acids. Sometimes your food makes different hormones like growth hormones. After that you food continues through your digestive system where it gets broke down. The rest turns into fat cells. Most fat cells go on to be used for energy but when there are too many (from overeating and poor exercise) they don't. Still listening? :)
