Exam 1 Study Guide Important contributions: o Leeuwenhoek: 1674; discovered bacteria Microbiology as a science was created Observed the bacteria in lake water through a magnifying glass o Jenner: 1796; vaccination for cow pox The first vaccination o Koch: Koch Postulates Four techniques that showed that specific microorganisms are linked to specific diseases Gold standard in medical microbiology 1881 introduced pure cultures in the lab 1882: discovers tuberculosis o Pasteur: Refuted Spontaneous Generation Considered to be father of modern microbiology 1861 performed experiments disproving spontaneous generation swannecked flask microorganisms in the air o Lister: Aseptic technique Medical microbiology Clean and sterile environment to decrease post surgery infection o Fleming: 1929: discovery of penicillin o Griffith: 1928: Genetic transformation in bacteria Using rats o Ames: Ames Test: a method that uses bacteria to determine whether a chemical can cause mutations in DNA Microscopy: o Total magnification: ocular x objective lens o Refractive index: the ratio of the velocity to its velocity in a specified medium Microscope: going from glass to liquid o Resolution: quality of lens/ illuminating source Shorter wavelength: better resolution o Application of various microscopes: Light Microscope BrightField: dark images against a brighter background DarkField: light is scattered by the sample Visible objects are below the resolution Unstained preparations Fluorescence: Absorb UV (short wavelength) and emit lower energy light (long wavelength) Differential Intereference: 3 beams of lights and prism to view image Image: seen using refractive indexes and thickness 3D image Scanner Laser: sends laser through sections of an organism Computer constructs a 3D image Details of the internal structure of the organism Electron Microscope: electromagnetic lenses/ electrons/ fluorescent screen Electrons have high frequent and short wavelengths Great Resolution TEM: Fixed Sample, very thin, and stained with a metal SEM: Observe surface details, coated with a heavy metal, no slices, only examines the surface o Staining techniques: chemical compounds used to view organisms under a microscope Acid or base stains Acid: negatively charged and stains the glass Base: positively charge and stains the organism Simple Stain: helps to determine size, shape, and arrangement Uses only one stain Gram stain: uses multiple stains, relying on peptidoglycan in the cell wall of bacteria Primary (crystal violet) mordant (Gram’s iodine) decolorizing (alcohol) counter stain (safarnin) Grampositive: purple Very thick layer of peptidoglycan Gram negative: pink Very thin layer of peptidoglycan Acid fast stain: resistance to decolonization by acids during staining procedures Heat decolorizing counterstain AcidFast: heavy waxy outer area NonAcid Fast: blue Capsule stain: Basic characteristics of bacteria, protists, fungi, virus, viroid, prion Prokaryotic cell structure and function (cell wall, cell membrane, ribosome, fimbriae, pili, flagella, endospores, nucleoid, plasmid) o Difference between G + and G bacterial cell wall Difference between prokaryotes and eukaryotes Microbial nutritional types o Classification based on carbon and energy sources o Classification based on environmental factors (temperature, pH, oxygen requirement, salt etc.) o Bacterial growth and calculation o Isolation and counting bacteria o Selective medium vs. differential medium Genetic information flow o Vertical vs. Horizontal gene transfer 1. DNA replication, transcription, translation 2. Transformation, conjugation, transduction, transposition o Mutation and Mutagens o Signal transduction, quorum sensing o Antibiotic resistance
