12

What are 2 qualities of alpha?

1. many associate with eukaryotic hosts
-mitochondria evolved from aerobic alphaproteobacteria

13

What are 2 examples of alpha?

1. Rhizobium (forms root nodules in legumes, fixes N2)
2. Agrobacterium (produce tumors, used in genetic engineering

14

What is a quality of beta?

holds important role in nitrogen cycle

15

What is an example of beta?

nitrosomonas (converts ammonium to nitrite)

16

What are 5 examples of gamma?

1. T. namibiensis (giant sulfur bacterium)
2. Legionella
3. Salmonella
4. V cholerate
5. E. coli

17

What are 2 examples of delta?

1. myxobacteria (create drought-resistant myxospores)
2. bdellovibrios (attack bacteria)

18

What is a quality of epsilon?

contains a lot of pathogens

19

What are 2 examples of epsilon?

1. Campylobacter (causes blood poisoning)
2. H. pylori (causes stomach ulcers)

20

chlamydias

can survive only within animal cells

21

What is an example of chlamydia?

chlamydia trachomatis (most common cause of blindness in world, most common STD)

22

Spirochetes

-free-living/pathgenic heterotrophs sprial
-spiral through their environment by rotating, flagellum-like filaments

23

What are 2 examples of spirochetes

1. syphilis
2. lyme disease

24

Cyanobacteria

-photoautrophs are the only prokaryotes with plant-like O2 genertaing photosynthesis
-abundant in atmosphere through photosynthesis

25

example of cyanobacteria

Oscillatoria (filamentous cyanobacterium)

26

What are stromatolites

reef-forming cyanobacteria

27

Actinomycetes

decompose soil (2 species cause tuberculosis + leprosy)

28

Bacillus anthracis

cause of anthrax

29

Clostridium botulinum

cause of botulism toxin

30

Mycoplasms

smallest known cells
