  25. Kochs Postulates
    • Suspected causative agent must be found in every case of the disease and be absent from healthy hosts
    • Agent must be isolated and grown outside the host
    • When agent is introduced into a healthy, susceptible host, the host must get the disease

  72. Glycocalyces Structure
    Slime layer, then capsule, then glycocalyx, cell wall, then cell membrane
  73. Glycocalyx
    Thin layer fully adherent to the bacterial cell wall. Not visible with light microscopy. Always present in all bacterial cells and the primary function is attachment
  74. Capsule
    • Visible with light microscopy and is much more abundant then the glycocalyx. The capsule is not present all the time. Formed if excess nutrients are present.
    • Has the ability to cause disease, is cytotoxic, decreases microphage migration and resists digestion by microphage
  75. Slime Layer
    Similar composition to the capsule, but is more loosely attached to the cell wall and can be easily removed by washing. Functions os facilitate attachment

  78. Fimbriae
    • Recognize receptors in tissues and decides what to bind to.
    • Attach to tissue and they hang out where the receptors are
    • Used for bacteria to attach, when they attach then you can cause disease

    • Bacillus

  96. Cytoskeleton
    Forming the cells basic shape
  97. The Vast Majority of microorganisms cannot cultured or grown in lab. T/F
    True, cuz we don't know what conditions are to grow them
  98. Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID)
    Come from new species or strains

    • HIV
    • SARS
    • Influenza
    • West Nile Virus
