genus the species name. named to decribe the organism, honor the reseacher, or decribe the habitat
single celled organisms that don't have anuclear membrane; has a cell wall made of peptidoglycan; binary fission
like bacteria but live in extreme condtions and if a specific one of these has a cell wall it is not made of peptidoglycan
microbes that have a distinct nucleus that holds genetic material and has a nuclear membrane
may be unicellular or multicellular; cell wall made of chitin; contain Mycella; asexual or sexual
took piece of meat sealed it then took it out and boiled => no microbes but others say because no air
used 's' shaped neck on a flask that allowd air but the microbes got caught in the curve. no microrganism so spontainious generation disproved
aka not transfering microbe techiniques such as washing hands, disinfecting work surfaces, negative air flow, autoclaving
1. Microogranism isolated from dieased animal 2. microorganism grown in pure culture and identified under scope 3. microb now ejected in healthy animal and this animal also becomes sick 4. microb extracted grown in pur culture and identified again
Koch Postulate exceptions
1. took fastidious-> the requirements to grow are too specific to recreate in lab (ex blood -> sifilis/ viruses) 2. Disease cause by a number of microbes(ex urinary tract infection) 3. microbes produce a number of diseases (ex strep A) 4. ethical issues (ex infecting human with hiv or sifilis)
specific resistance by body's defence against a particular pathogen; 2 types active and passive
Natural active immunity
get disease and body makes antibodies for future attacks by that specific pathogen
Artificial active immunity
vaccine given at a doctors office that gets body to make antibodies from future attacks from that specific pathogen
Artificial passive immunity
Rhogam as a prenatial and right after birth precausion has proteins that covers baby cells and hides the cell from mothers leukocytes so it doesnt attack itself.
our use of microbes, cells or cell componets to make useful porducts. not natural (ex bioremedeation or sewage treatment or insect pest control)
Recombinant genetic energy
the manipulation of genetic material in vitro by the insertion of gene into the DNA of another species and that species makes the protein
use of a virus to insert/replace missing or incorrect gap into human cells (virus is just used to get gene to cells)(ex sickle cell anemia)
caused by prion that are in beef with the disesase. it affects the nervous system and eats holes in the brain as it progresses. silent killer(spongiform encepalitis) no treatment or cure. even if meat cooked cant get rid of
E. coli O157
transmission by bacteria and you get it from uncooked beef, unpasterurized beverages, spinich; symptoms: bloody diarrhea, dehydration, blood in urine, kidney death. you can treat the symptoms
Flesh Eating Strep
bactieria based illness. its a rapidly growing wound and can be treated by antibiotics
caused by virus and travels and transmitted by blood and body fluids so sex needlesprenatally. there are no symptoms for years. there is treatment to delay symptoms. sympotoms include yeast and other infections, pneumonia and sarcoma
bacterial transferred by blood and body fluids. sex and prenatally. 3 symptomatic stages 1. (2 weeks to a month) skin lesions called chanere 2. rash then can lie dormant for years (called latent) 3. tissues suchs as brain, skin liver are affected and also blindness. is only treatable during stage 1 and 2
