Flashcards in Kirby Bauer Deck (16)
Natural antimicrobial agents produced by microorganisms to kill other bacteria.
A tool used for measuring the effectiveness of antimicrobials against pathogenic microbes.
When creating a culture to be used for a Kirby Bauer test what inoculation technique do you use?
The bacterial lawn technique
What type of agar is used in the Kirby Bauer test?
Mueller Hinton Agar
This Clear zone will appear around the disk where growth has been inhibited
Zone of inhibition
If bacteria are able to grow in the presence of the antibiotic they are said to be
If bacteria are inhibited from growing in the presence of the antibiotic they are said to be
The zone of inhibition should be measured in
An adaptive response in which microorganisms begin to tolerate an amount of drug that would normally be inhibitory
Prevents peptide bond formation during translation.
Interferes with DNA replication
Inhibits cross-linking of the cell wall’s peptidoglycan.
Interferes with translation via interaction with ribosome (interferes with tRNA attachment)
Inhibits purine and pyrimidine synthesis
(ultimately affecting the production of folic acid synthesis)
Interferes with 30s ribosomal subunit during translation.
