Flashcards in Micro - High Yield Virus Genomes and Annoying things that keep coming up Deck (30):
What is ICAM-1
Inter Cellular Adhesion Molecule 1
-codes for a cell surface glycoprotein on epithelial cells
Which virus is associated with ICAM-1?
Which fungi is associated with diabetics and have hyphae that branch at 90 degree angles?
Mucor, Rhizopus, Absidia
PainFUL chancre and lymphadenopathy in male groin
These chancres "do make you cry"
Soft chancre looks a lot like syphillus but isn't
H. ducreyi - ChancrOID disease.
It's not syphillus
It's not herpes
Chancroid disease caused by Haemophilus ducreyi
Asplenics beware of these bugs!
Strep pneumo, H influenza, N. meningitis
Asplenics and Sickle cell beware of this bug!
Only RNA virus that replicates in the nucleus
All RNA viruses are single stranded except . . .
ReoVirus. The only Double stranded RNA virus
RNA negative viruses cannot be read and must bring their own . . .
RNA positive viruses can be read by host machinery
All RNA viruses replicate in the nucleus EXCEPT
Causes aplastic anemia in sickle cell patients
Causes hydrops fetalis
