Capsule and Slime layer

12

What is responsible for the movement of Bacterial cells?

Flagella

13

T/F: all bacteria have Flagella

false

14

What rod-like proteinaceous extensions of bacterial cells have sticky, bristlelike projections, are used by bacteria to adhere to one another, and serve an important function in biofilms?

Fimbriae

15

What rod-like proteinaceous extension of bacterial cells are longer than flagella, mediate the transfer of DNA from one cell to another (conjugation), and are also known as conjugation pili

pili

16

What structure provides structure and shape to bacterial cells?

cell wall

What structure protects bacterial cells from osmotic forces?

cell wall

What are bacterial cell walls composed of?

peptidoglycan

19

What are the two basic types of bacterial cell walls?

Gram (+) and Gram (-)

20

Which type of cell walls appear purple after Gram staining?

Gram (+)

21

Which type of cell walls have a relatively thick layer of peptidoglycan?

Gram (+)

Which type of bacterial cell wall has a bilayer membrane and a relatively thin layer of peptidoglycan?

Gram (-)

24

Which type of cell walls appear red (or pink) after Gram staining procedure?

Gram (-)

25

What are the passive processes of bacterial cells crossing the cytoplasmic membrane?

diffusion, facilitated diffusion and osmosis

26

What are the active processes of bacterial cells crossing the cytoplasmic membrane?

active transport and group translocation

27

During which active process are substances chemically modified during transport?

Group translocation

28

What is the function of the semipermeable membrane during osmosis?

allows movement of H2O but not solutes

29

T/F: while placed in an isotonic solution, cells without a cell wall will erupt.

False, this occurs in hypotonic solutions

30

T/F: while placed in a hypertonic solution, cells without a cell wall will shrivel.

True
