  • The Transformation Of Bacteria ( Green Fluorescent Protein )

    1341 Words  | 6 Pages

    Transformation in bacteria is something that could be essential for survival in a bacteria. In order to perform this transformation naturally a bacterium must considered competent, otherwise it must undergo an artificial transformation. Being a competent cell means that the bacteria can take up DNA from its environment naturally (5). Those that are not competent such as Escherichia coli that are not naturally competent can be tested with an artificial transformation, such as what we will use in

  • Essay about Neisseria Gonorrheae Bacteria

    718 Words  | 3 Pages

    gram-negative spherical-shaped diplococci bacteria that is responsible for this disease. It is usually seen in pairs with neighboring sides flattened. The organism is usually found in the cell in a particular category of white blood cells with various shapes of nuclei, of the gonorrhea pustule exudates with humans as its only natural host. N. gonorrhoeae is highly efficient in using transferrin-bound iron for in vitro growth. Many strains can also utilize iron. The bacteria bind only to human proteins carrying

  • The Effects of Different Disinfectants on Bacteria Essay

    586 Words  | 3 Pages

    I chose to do the effects of different disinfectants on bacteria because I have always wondered if disinfectants such as Clorox, Lysol, and hand sanitizer actually kill 99.9 percent of germs. Also, I know that there are harsh chemicals that can be damaging to us over time. Do these harsh chemicals get the job done? Maybe taking a green, organic way could be the solution in the future. My main question is which is the better disinfectant, Clorox Disinfecting Wipes or Lysol Disinfecting Wipes. I want

  • Our Battle Against Bacteria Essay

    2192 Words  | 9 Pages

    is the bacteria Gram-positive or Gram-negative, does it need water or is it anaerobic, can the antibiotic be used for more than one bacteria, and does the bacteria need to be killed or slowed down (49-50). To determine if the bacteria is Gram-negative or –positive, scientists will use “Gram-staining” which stains Gram-positive bacteria because they possess small holes, or entrances into the bacteria, therefore allowing the “crystal violet stain” through the cell wall; Gram-negative bacteria possess

  • Gram Positive And Gram-Positive Bacteria

    710 Words  | 3 Pages

    Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria can be distinguished by conducting biochemical tests. Its growth can be examined on selected mediums containing metabolic inhibitors such as antibiotics. The medias utilized in this project are: media containing the antibiotic vancomycin, Eosin Methylene Blue-lactose (EMB-lactose) agar, and Phenylethyl alcohol (PEA) agar (Holbrook and Leicht 2017). Vancomycin is most effective at inhibiting the growth of Gram-positive cocci (Rotschafer et al. 2005). EMB-lactose

  • Escherichia Coli : A Type Of Bacteria Essay

    791 Words  | 4 Pages

    Introduction Escherichia Coli, located in one of the main organs known as the large intestine, is a type of bacteria that helps digestion. (Trzepacz, Timmons, and Duobinis-Gray, 2016) For Escherichia Coli to remain stable and alive, it needs specific necessities. These needs are known as the following: Energy, vitamins, and similar compounds. Escherichia Coli is found everywhere! Escherichia Coli, or E. Coli, can also form a number of these substances itself with the use of energy. (Shiloach

  • Bacterial Transformation Is The Process Of Transferring Bacteria

    1172 Words  | 5 Pages

    transferring bacteria. This begins with genetic transformation where genes transfer from an organism to another with the help of plasmid. Plasmid contains one or more piece of DNA within bacteria. This technique is used commonly in technology specifically designed for biology usage to enhance the culture around with positive results. It is also used to solve common world problems, such as human insulin and drought resistant crops. In this experiment, the attention was focused on the bacteria, Escherichia

  • The Structure Of Bacteria That Causes Disease Essay

    1431 Words  | 6 Pages

    such as bacteria, fungi and virus which is non-living. The structure of bacteria that causes disease are the fimbriae, flagella and toxins. The cell wall provides structural support and the cell membrane supports the functions that occur in the subcellular structure of higher organisms. Bacteria are also known as pathogens which cause diseases in plants, insects, animals and humans. Flagella are the long tail-like structures that enable the bacteria to swim or move and it also help the bacteria to migrate

  • Unnecessary Prescription Of Antibiotics Resistant Bacteria

    908 Words  | 4 Pages

    Unnecessary Prescription of Antibiotics is Present and Increases Creation of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria An increase in antibiotic resistant bacteria has been currently progressing and researchers are beginning to link the causes to the overuse of antibiotics. Studies of antibiotic overuse are few and as a result concrete information on antibiotic use in the U.S. is lacking. The problem with the low studies of antibiotics is that a full research on antibiotic prescription in the U.S. has not been

  • The Bacteria Escherichia Coli ( E. Coli )

    793 Words  | 4 Pages

    Question 1 In the past scientist have used the bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) in Synthetic Biology to allow the bacterial species to recognise and respond to light frequencies providing greater knowledge of complex biological systems (Levskaya et al. 2005). E. coli is a suitable chassis to express Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) as the bacteria’s plasmid helps to establish GFP (Chavshin et al. 2013). The bacterial plasmid is a maltose-binding protein that helps E. coli and GFP fuse together
