About Science Prof Online PowerPoint Resources Science Prof Online (SPO) is a free science education website that provides fully-developed Virtual Science Classrooms, science-related PowerPoints, articles and images. The site is designed to be a helpful resource for students, educators, and anyone interested in learning about science. The SPO Virtual Classrooms offer many educational resources, including practice test questions, review questions, lecture PowerPoints, video tutorials, sample assignments and course syllabi. New materials are continually being developed, so check back frequently, or follow us on Facebook (Science Prof Online) or Twitter (ScienceProfSPO) for updates. Many SPO PowerPoints are available in a variety of formats, such as fully editable PowerPoint files, as well as uneditable versions in smaller file sizes, such as PowerPoint Shows and Portable Document Format (.pdf), for ease of printing. Images used on this resource, and on the SPO website are, wherever possible, credited and linked to their source. Any words underlined and appearing in blue are links that can be clicked on for more information. PowerPoints must be viewed in slide show mode to use the hyperlinks directly.
Several helpful links to fun and interactive learning tools are included throughout the PPT and on the Smart Links slide, near the end of each presentation. You must be in slide show mode to utilize hyperlinks and animations.

Genus of rod-shaped, acid-fast bacteria. Mycolic acid in cell wall gives Mycobacteria many characteristics that defy medical treatment, including: increased resistance to chemical damage & dehydration allows the bacterium to grow inside macrophages, hiding it from host's immune
system Acid-fast stain M. tuberculosis doubles population every 18-24 hours, while M. leprae doubles population about every 14 days. Extremely long generation time; contributes to the chronic nature of both diseases.

Obligate ____________ Die in presence of oxygen. It is poisonous to them. Anaerobic respiration = break down food into useable energy without the use of O2. _____________ Anaerobes Not strict aerobes or anaerobes. Many yeasts and enteric bacteriaEscherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. O2 ________________ bacteria Require oxygen levels lower that that found under normal atmospheric conditions (Helicobacter pilori found in stomach). ________________ Anaerobes Dont use oxygen, but are not killed by it. (Lactobacilli - This genus will make pickles from cucumbers and cheese from milk.) From the Virtual Microbiology Classroom on ScienceProfOnline.com
Microbes & Oxygen Aerobic and anaerobic bacteria can be identified by growing them in liquid culture: 1: Obligate aerobic bacteria gather at top of test tube to absorb maximal amount of oxygen. 2: Obligate anaerobic bacteria gather at bottom to avoid oxygen. 3: Facultative anaerobes gather mostly at the top, since aerobic respiration is most beneficial; but as lack of oxygen does not hurt them, they can be found all along the test tube. 4: Microaerophiles gather at upper part of test tube, not at top. Require O 2, but at low concentration. Image: Microbial oxygen requirements, Pixie From the Virtual Microbiology Classroom on ScienceProfOnline.com Microbes & Oxygen Using oxygen (1/2 O2) in metabolism creates toxic waste. Microbes that are able to use aerobic respiration produce enzymes to detoxify oxygen: Catalase: H2O2 --- H20 and 02 Superoxide dismutase (SOD): oxygen radical --- H20 and O2 Microbes that dont make these enzymes cannot exist in the presence of oxygen.

Microaerophilic bacterium. Campylobacter infections are ____________. Commonly found in animal feces. We catch this from animals, particularly birds. Causes food poisoning. One of the most common causes of human gastroenteritis in the world. 2 4 million cases in US per year, peaking in summer months. Usually not life-threatening. Resolves within 24 hours one week. Problem with C. jejuni being antibiotic resistant, because we put antibiotics in animal feed.

L. monocytogenes is widely distributed; found in soil, water, animals, birds, insects. Responsible for disease listeriosis. Rarely pathogenic in healthy adults (mild flu-like symptoms). Can be lethal in pregnant women, fetuses, newborns, elderly and immune compromised, causing meningitis or bacterimia. Transmitted from environment (contaminated food an water) to human, except in the case of pregnant woman passing on to
fetus. In vulnerable populations can have a case fatality rate of 25%. Facultative intracellular pathogen. Triggers its own phagocytosis. Listeria are very hardy. Can grow in temperatures ranging from 39F (refrigerator) to 99F. Q: What microbes have we discussed in previous lecture that are Tat the other end of the temperature spectrum?

All illnesses started on or after July 31, 2011. Twenty-one deaths have been reported:

Meet the Microbe! Gram-negative, microaerophilic, and acidophilic bacterium. Can thrive in the stomach and upper
small intestines and cause ulcers. ________________ Obligate acidophiles have to live in an acidic environment. Most fungi & some bacteria grow best in acid niches.

From the Virtual Microbiology Classroom on ScienceProfOnline.com Microbes & Water: Osmotic Pressure H2O important reactant in many metabolic reactions. Most cells die in absence of water. - Some have cell walls that retain water. Q: What genus comes to mind? - Endospores and cysts can cease most metabolic activity for years. Q: What organisms make endospores? Which make cysts? Cell walls of bacteria prevent them from exploding in a hypotonic environment, but most bacteria are vulnerable in hypertonic environments. Many bacteria can be plasmolyzed by high
concentrations of solutes.

One type of glycocalyx is called a _____ ____ glycoproteins loosely associated with the cell wall. cause bacteria to adhere to solid surfaces and help prevent the cell from drying out Meet the Microbe!
