A genus of bacterium characterized by endospore production, being obligate ananerobes, and most produce potent exotoxins.
Clostridium tetani - tetanus
Clostridium botulinum - botulism
Clostridium perfringens - gas gangrene
A network of protein filaments found in eukaryotic cells that hold organelles in place and porvide internal support. Prokayotic cells do not have a cytoskeleton.
The prefix for pairs of microbes. Pairs of cocci are diplococci and pairs of bacilli are diplobacilli.
Endoflagella (axial filaments)
An internal flagella found only in helical shaped bacteria.
A membrane bound organelle found in eukaryotic cells involved in producing organic molecules.
The rough endoplasmic reticulum is studded with ribosomes and produces proteins.
The smooth endoplasmic reticulum does not contain ribosomes and produces lipids.
A protective structure found inside some bacteria that allow the bacteria to survive after the vegetative cell has died.
It plays an important role in the pathogenesis of the genera Bacillus and Clostridium.
Generally produced as environmenal conditions deteriorate.
The lipid A portion of lipopolysaccharide found in the cell wall of gram negative bacteria. It is released as the bacteria dies and stimulates fever and shock in the host.
Cells that contain a membrane bound nucleus. This includes the animals, plants, protozoa, and fungi.
The passive movement of molecules from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration that requires a carrier or channel protein.
Cellular appendages involve in movement.
Bacteria flagella are simply long strands of protein.
Eukaryotic flagella consist of 9 pairs of microtubules around a central pair.
Baciilus shaped bacteria that are are tapered at the ends.
A polysaccharide coating secreted by some bacteria. Also know as a capsule, the structrure contributes significantly to the pathogenesis of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Streptococcus mutans.
A membrane bound organelle found in eukaryotic cells that receives products from other organelles, packages them, and ships them to other parts of the cell or the environment.
A classification of bacteria cell wall that posesses an outer membrane containing lipopolysaccharide. All gram negative bacteria release endotoxin which is part of the lipopolysaccharide.
Bacterial conjugation found on gram negative bacteria.
( transfer of DNA)
molecule that is separate from, and can replicate independently of, the chromosomal DNA. They are double-stranded and, in many cases, circular. Plasmids usually occur naturally in bacteria, but are sometimes found in eukaryotic organisms
A group of organisms that lack a cell nucleus.Peptidoglycan Unique and contain 70 ribosomes.
Involved in protein synthesis. The number depends on the amount of protein synthesis.
Allows certain ions and molecules to pass while others are restricted.
An organelle that contains digestive enzymes, found ONLY in eukaryotic cells.
Small molecules, oxygen,carbon dioxide (Passive).
Bacteria that contain a thick layer of peptidoglycan, causing calls to retain the initial purple stain(in Gram stain) after decolorization.
When a substance is chemically altered during transport across the plasma membrane during active transport.
A molecule consisting of a lipid and polysaccharide- forms the outer layer of gram(-) cell walls
Membrane Bound Organelles
Organelles found only in Eukaryotic cells- NUcleus, Mitochondria, Lysosomes, Golgi, and Endo Reticulum
Membrane bound organelle that is used in the production of ATP.
A cell that has a single flagella.
A genus of bacteria that contains high concentrations of mycolic acid in the cell wall.
A hydrophobic waxy layer on a cell bound to a thin layer of peptidoglycan by a polysaccharide- causes cultures of mycobacterium to clump and stick to the walls of a flask.
A cell having two or more flagella at one or both ends.
Curved Spirilla (shaped like a "comma")( , )
Chains of cells- bacillus and coccus
Clusters of cells - Coccus only!!
Production or formation of spores
Helical shaped cells with an endoflagella inside it to enable it to swim.
A spherical or ovoid bacterium.
o o o
A bacterium that has an oval rod shape
The transfer of genetic material from one cell to another -involving cell to cell contact.
Reserve deposits within the cytoplasm of prokaryotic cells.
In a prokaryotic cell, everything inside the plasma membrane; in a Eukaryotic cell, everything inside the plasma membrane and external to the nucleus.
When an organism is attracted to a light source.
Form of endocytosis. The cell sends out pseudpodia to engulf another bacteria and then become a intracellular vesicle which is then eaten up by lysosomes, the left over material is then excreted from the cell through exocytosis.
Within a vacuole (membrane bound organelle).
-digests toxins that the cell produces
Term used when flagella on a cell are projected in all directions
A common component found in the cell wall of all bacteria.
Think of brick wall!
Glycan- Bricks (NAM & NAG)
Peptido- Mortar - amino acid chains
-tetrapeptide side chains
In Gram Negative cells.
- lipid A endotoxin
*single to a few layers of peptidoglycan*
Pressure applied to a solution to prevent the inward flow of water across a selectively permeable membrane.
Movement of (water) molecules through a selectively permeable membrane from higher concentration to a lower concentration.
