  • Mycoplasma pneumoniae Essay

    677 Words  | 3 Pages

    Mycoplasma pneumoniae Background: Mycoplasma pneumoniae is unique because of its small genome and physical size. The bacterium contains only 500-2300 Kba in its genome that produces about 700 different proteins. Its reduced genome has been clearly mapped. M. pneumoniae size range from 0.2 to 0.8 micrometer and are capable of passing through most filters designed to remove bacteria. The bacterium is the smallest living organism capable of replicating itself. The bacterium lacks a cell wall but

    Mycoplasma Pneumonia is the most common pneumonia ranging in older kids and younger adults. This type of lung infection goes by many different names such as Walking Pneumonia, Eaton Agent Pneumonia and Primary Atypical Pneumonia. Mycoplasma Pneumoniae is one of the smallest living organisms that can reproduce outside of a cell but, prefers to have a host and to be parasitic. Mycoplasma pneumoniae likes to party in the late summer and early fall especially in communities but is still found in the

  • Mycoplasma Pneumoniae Lab Report

    489 Words  | 2 Pages

    Introduction: Mycoplasma pneumoniae is an atypical bacterium that may result in lung infection by causing damage in the lining of the respiratory tract. Researches revealed that 20% of cases of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) are caused by M.pneumoniae. 10% of these cases develop M.pneumoniae infections (URT diseases) and about 10% of infections remain asymptomatic. Patients that are immunocompromised, recovering from a respiratory sickness, or have asthma are more likely to develop M.pneumoniae

  • Bacillus, Mycoplasma, and Escherichia Essay

    Bacillus, Mycoplasma, and Escherichia In a clinical setting signs and symptoms can lead a care taker down a treatment path, but if a bacterial infection is suspected, a definitive answer from the “lab” is needed before prescribing medications. In this instance a yellow sputum was produced by the patient, which will be taken to the lab an analyzed under a microscope. There are three suspect bacteria, which are Bacillus, Mycoplasma, and Escherichia. A discussion of staining procedures, as well as

  • Mycoplasma Haemofelis: Feline Tiny Blood Parasite Essay

    951 Words  | 4 Pages

    Mycoplasma haemofelis is the most prevalent erythroparasite in felines (Reagan, 30). This tiny blood parasite is the cause of feline hemotropic mycoplasmosis (FHM), previously known as feline infectious anemia (FIA) (“New: IDEXX…”). Formerly known as Haemobartonella felis or Eperythrozoon felis, these hemoplasma were considered rickettsial organisms until the late 1990’s following 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequence analysis which revealed a closer pylogenetical relationship to the genus Mycoplasma
