Identify and describe three groups of low G+C Gram-positive bacteria. Clostridia: rod-shaped, obligate anaerobes, some form endospores, produce potent toxins that cause a variety of diseases in humans. Important in medicine & industry (Botox & oral plaque). Examples of clostridia include C. tetani (cause tetanus), C. perfringens ( causes
Identification of Unknown Organisms Benjamin Nibarger Professor Hoffman Monday 11:15 AM Group Members - Jamie Jerome, Natalie Perez, Ruth Pinzon September 27, 2014 Introduction The purpose of this study is to identify four unknown organisms. The unknown organisms have been assigned randomly to six-research groups by Professor Hoffman. Each research group was provided two eukaryotes and two prokaryotes. The unknown organisms will fall into the following classifications: bacteria, algae, fungi, or protozoans. All living organisms are organized into one of three domains of life, Bacteria, Archaea, and Eukarya.
The EKG is read by a doctor or specialist, such as an internist, family medicine doctor, electrophysiologist, cardiologist, anesthesiologist, or surgeon. The doctor will look at the pattern of spikes and dips on your EKG to check the electrical activity in different parts of your heart. The spikes and dips
Actinobacteria belong to a diverse group of freshwater and terrestrial microorganisms. Although common, the metabolism and genetics of numerous actinobacteria species are not well understood. The Traxler lab seeks to characterize and define actinobacterial behavior, specifically in terrestrial environments by employing a variety of methods. One approach studies the behavior
A murmur is a series of vibrations of variable duration that is able to hear with a stethoscope at the chest wall during a heart auscultation, that emanates from the heart or great vessels. A systolic murmur is a murmur that begins during or after the first heart sound and ends before or during the second heart sound. Certain clinical features common to all murmurs must be defined in the patient with a systolic murmur. These characteristics are intensity (loudness), frequency (pitch), quality, duration, configuration, primary location (point of maximum intensity), and site(s) of radiation. Localizing their point of maximum intensity may aid greatly in determining their site of evolution. Not all heart murmurs radiate; however, when it occurs,
Supraventricular tachycardia: Supraventricular Tachycardia is a cardio-vascular disease which occasionally results in abnormally fast heartbeat which is not related to exercise, stress or illness.
Attempting to teach others how to double dutch is not an easy task, especially if one of them doesn’t know how to jump when there is only one rope. It was the last sunny day of the week as Katelyn Orcutt, Marisol Mattson, and I set out to double dutch. We walked to the UVU playing fields by the UCAS facility to try it out. Staying on the pavement, I started to attempt to instruct them how to get in between the two ropes. We ended up doing a variety of jump rope activities, such as a contest to see who could single jump the longest, or who could single jump the fastest, etc. We did this for about forty minutes before we decided it was time to stop.
Introduction: We present a case of extreme bradycardia in a patient with Batten Disease Background: Batten Disease is a rare and fatal autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder, regarded as the juvenile form of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL). It is most commonly associated with mutations in the CLN3 gene and involves lipofuscins
4. Conductivity – ability of heart muscle fibers to transmit electrical impulses. 5. Contractility – shortening of heart muscle fibers in response to stimuli. 6. Automaticity – ability of heart to beat spontaneously and repetitively without external neurohormonal control. The heart is capable of beating outside the body, given proper laboratory conditions. Automaticity is evidently linked to fluid and electrolyte balance rather than to nervous system control.
Glucose and lactose are the most preferred carbon sources (Dickinson, 1999) Microorganisms used in Yogurt production The bacterial cultures used in yogurt production are mainly Streptococcus thermophiles and Lactobacillus bulgaricus. Lactobacillus bulgaricus These are gram positive bacteria which are found in acidic condition of pH 4 to 4.5 – acidophilic.
SCREENING OF ANTAGONISTIC ACTIVITY OF MARINE ACTINOMYCETES AGAINST CLINICAL PATHOGENS Ramarajan K*,Karthick .V * P.K.Senthilkumar, Department of Microbiology,Faculty of Sciences, Annamalai University Tamil Nadu, India. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Abstract The present study was conducted to examine the ability of six promising indigenous isolates of marine actinomycetes (NA-1, 2, 3, 4 and TA-1, 2) as probiotics in
The Oman Sea has diverse environmental conditions, special hydrological regime and its sediments originated from different sources. Particularly, it has not been explored for actinomycetes yet (Karamouz et al., 2012). Hence, it can provide a rich source for novel therapeutic agents and new marine actinomycete species. Recovery of high frequency
