  • The Resistance Of Bacteria And Antibiotics

    1615 Words  | 7 Pages

    resistance of bacteria to antibiotics is becoming a grave and global medical problem. This is because whenever antibiotics are taken the development of resistance is a given consequence; bacteria adapt to changing environmental conditions through the continuous process of evolution. The main issue with antibiotics is not whether but when antibiotic resistance will occur. This resistance is caused by the lack of new antibiotics available and continuing over-prescription of antibiotics. Any bacteria that acquire

  • The Archaea And Bacteria Domains

    895 Words  | 4 Pages

    paper I will discuss the distinctions between the Archaea and Bacteria domains, give a definition of both DNA and RNA (and the roles they play in determining the previous domains), metabolism’s role in classifying Nitrosococcus oceani and Nitrosopumilus maritimus as Archaea or Bacteria, and each of the organism 's ability to thrive in an environment where crude oil is abundant (including other microbes in the environment). Archaea or Bacteria Recently life was broken into two different domains: the

  • Culture And Sensitivity Of Bacteria

    1569 Words  | 7 Pages

    Culture and Sensitivity If your patient has an infection of any kind it 's critical to know which antibiotics will be effective against the particular pathogen or disease-causing agent. This means that the species and strain of bacteria, fungus, or other pathogen must be identified and he drugs that will be the most effective at clearing up the infection must be determined. The only way this can be done is by running a culture and sensitivity test. Just keep in mind that there are many different

  • Bacteria And Its Effects On Bacterial Populations

    1255 Words  | 6 Pages

    Often in prokaryotes like bacteria, they contain plasmids which are small double stranded rings of extra DNA. Most of these plasmids contain a small amount of genes which replicated by themselves rather than with the DNA in the cell. These plasmids could be beneficial or a detrimental to the bacteria. For the beneficial side, plasmids contain products for toxins that can go on to make their host immune to that of the toxin along with many infectious diseases have been cured by plasmids as antibiotic

  • Bacteria And Its Effects On The Natural Environment

    1592 Words  | 7 Pages

    Microscopic single-celled organisms, such as bacteria, consist of a seemingly simple internal structure that lacks membrane-bound organelles, yet bacteria thrive in diverse nutritional environments. The significant ability of bacteria to adapt to a wide variety of nutritional environments reflects their use of overlapping regulatory systems that link gene expression to intracellular accumulation of a small number of key metabolites. Bacteria survive using a diverse array of carbon sources, especially

  • Classifying Glucokinase in Bacteria Essay

    663 Words  | 3 Pages

    Glucokinase (glk A) is classified in bacteria based upon having ATP binding site and ROK motif, the sequence of glk A gene (JN645812) of S. aureus ATCC12600 showed presence of ATP binding site and ROK motif. We have earlier observed glk A of S. aureus has higher affinity towards the substrate compared to other bacterial glk A and under anaerobic condition with increased glucose concentration S. aureus exhibited higher rate of biofilm formation. To establish this, 3D structure of glk A was built using

  • Differences Between Bacteria And Archaea

    774 Words  | 4 Pages

    here are the bacteria and archaea. During early stages they were considered to be the same however in the 1970’s scientists discovered that major differences do set them apart. Essentially the prokaryotes include bacteria while the eukaryotes had already included the archaea. The archaea is seen as a survivor as it is thought to have been around since the beginning of our time. So what are we then exactly? We are nothing else than a biological form that is also a habitat for Bacteria and archaea.

  • What Are Bacteria And Other Organisms?

    1458 Words  | 6 Pages

    thousands upon thousands of bacteria that we interact with on a daily basis some are good and help us live healthy and productive lives, like the bacteria that is used to make and keep yogurt from spoiling (Wassenaar, 2002) . Now granted, not all bacteria are beneficial to us and can cause us a lot of harm. If bacteria are harming us, either by causing disease, contaminating our food, or harming the environment that we live in, one needs to identify the unknown bacteria so that the proper treatment

  • Characteristics Of Bacteria, Archaea, And Eukaryote

    1149 Words  | 5 Pages

    Pavan Vedula General Microbiology 24 July 2015 Flavobacterium Capsulatum There are three main domains of life, which consist of Bacteria, Archaea, and Eukaryote. These complex cells have various characteristics that are all unique to each domain, thus causing a separation. However, as biologists such as Carl Woese and Lynn Margulis have theorized and explained, Bacteria and Eukaryotes have all branched from a common ancestor millions of years ago; and a few decades back, Archaea were added creating

  • Antimicrobial Resistant Bacteria in Seafood

    1034 Words  | 5 Pages

    resistant bacteria in seafood are a major public health concern worldwide. Reports on use of antimicrobials in aquaculture and residue findings in the products have indicated food safety threat to the consumers. In aquaculture, the use of wide array antimicrobials leading to development of bacterial resistance, use of resistant probiotic resistant strains and contamination of resistant pathogenic bacteria e.g. Salmonella spp. as input have facilitated to development of pool of resistant bacteria.
