REACTIONS GROWTH RESULTS
What are the other components of the TSI agar?

what is the purpose of the catalase test?
differentiates bacteria based on their ability to respire. respiration is converting glucose to ATP. It also tests directly or indirectly for prescence of electron transport chain which generates the ATP of a cell. It differentiates staph(catalase +) from strep(catalase -.) The catalase breaks hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen. The O2 indicates bubbles on the slide.
what are the indicators
hydrogen peroxide which will form bubbles
what are the reactions or growth results of the catalase test?
If bubbles occur that catalase is present and the symbol is positive. If no bubbles are present than catalase is absent and the symbol is negative.
what is the purpose of the coagulase test?
to differentiate staphylococcus aureus from other gram-positive cocci.( staph aureus uses plasma components in host via coagulase to convert fibrinogen into fibrin protective barriers.)
what is the indicator of the coagulase test?
fibrinogen causing cells to clump
what are the reactions or growth results of the coagulase test?
table 5-32 and table 5-33
what 2 forms does the coagulase enzyme occur in
bound coagulase and free coagulase
what is bound coagulase?
the clumping factor. it's attached to the bacterial cell wall and reacts directly with fibrinogen in plasma
what is free coagulase?
an extracellular enzyme that reacts with a plasma component called coagulase-reacting factor (CRF)
what are the components of blood agar?
tryptic soy agar and sheep blood
designation of an organism based on its ability to grow in the presence of oxygen
bacteria that use oxygen in metabolism
bacteria that don't use oxygen in metabolism
organisms that must have oxygen to grow
a microorganism capable of both fermentation and respiration that grows in the presence and absence of oxygen
anaerobe that grows in the presence of oxygen but doesn't use it metabollically
an organism that requires oxygen but can't tolerate it at atmospheric levels of it
