1

Natural antimicrobial agents produced by microorganisms to kill other bacteria.

Antibiotics

2

A tool used for measuring the effectiveness of antimicrobials against pathogenic microbes.

Kirby-Bauer test

3

When creating a culture to be used for a Kirby Bauer test what inoculation technique do you use?

The bacterial lawn technique

4

What type of agar is used in the Kirby Bauer test?

Mueller Hinton Agar

5

This Clear zone will appear around the disk where growth has been inhibited

Zone of inhibition

6

If bacteria are able to grow in the presence of the antibiotic they are said to be

Resistant

7

If bacteria are inhibited from growing in the presence of the antibiotic they are said to be

Susceptible

8

The zone of inhibition should be measured in

Millimeters

9

An adaptive response in which microorganisms begin to tolerate an amount of drug that would normally be inhibitory

Drug resistance

10

Prevents peptide bond formation during translation.

Chloramphenicol

11

Interferes with DNA replication

Ciprofloxacin

12

Inhibits cross-linking of the cell wall’s peptidoglycan.

Penicillin

13

Interferes with translation via interaction with ribosome (interferes with tRNA attachment)

Tetracycline

14

Inhibits purine and pyrimidine synthesis
(ultimately affecting the production of folic acid synthesis)

Trimethoprim

15

Interferes with 30s ribosomal subunit during translation.

Streptomycin
