1

Main differneces between pro and euk

Pro - smaller, no nuclear membrane, ribosomal differences, no membrane bound organells

2

Gram positive vs. gram negative

Positive - walls are thick and made of peptidoglycan...can have teichoic and lipoteichoic acids

Negative - tiny bit of peptidoglycan...have LPS on the outer layer

3

Flagella for

Movement

4

Pilli

For adherence and attachment

5

Capsule of bacteria

Typically polysaccharide

6

Unqiue to fungi

Glucans and mannoproteins

7

Viral spikes

Used for attachment/adherence

8

Envelope derived from

Host cell

9

Viral differentiating factors

Genetic material

10

How is genetic material from virus/human Id'd in cells?

We have CpG sites that are methylated...viral has unmethylated
