EXAM 2 Study Guide Chapter 12 Microbial Evolution and Systematics Origin of Life 0 Likely occurred at hydrothermal vents on the sea oor O Lipid bilayers eventually replaced mineral compartments in these vents 0 Environment was originally anoxic cells likely used CO2 and H2 to power metabolism Sulfur would have been produced as a byproduct C First cells were simple 0 RNA was likely the first selfreplicating systems and would have been available when the first forms of life originated Metabolic Diversification O Oxygenic Photosynthesis evolved in cyanobacteria approx 35 BYA 0 Lead to Great Oxidation Event I Increased Oxygen content in atmosphere I Created Ozone 8 made Earth habitable 0 Many other methods of Metabolism evolved between first cells and photosynthetic cells will be discussed more in Chapter 13 Origin of Eukaryotes O Endosymbiotic Hypothesis 0 Larger cell engulfed a smaller cell this cell was the ancestor of mitochondriachloroplasts 0 Hydrogen Hypothesis 0 Larger cell engulfed a smaller H2 producing cell that eventually formed a nucleus Phylogenetic Trees ROOTED UNROOTED Chapter 13 Metabolic Diversity of Microorganisms Main Types of Metabolism Phototrophy Chemolithotrophy Fermentations Anaerobic Respiration and Hydrocarbon Metabolism 1 Photosynthesis O Converts light energy into chemical energy 0 Phototrophs organisms that do photosynthesis 0 Can be autotrophs as well capable of using CO2 as their sole C source photoautotrophy O Requires 1 ATP production 2 CO2 reduction to cell material 0 Can also use organic carbon as source photoheterotrophy

Oxidation 0 Reduced Sulfur Oxidation O Fe2 Oxidation O Nitrification 8 Anammox 3 Fermentation 0 Organic compounds are catabolized by fermentation when anoxic environments don39t have SO4392 N03 and Fe3 0 Uses substratelevel phosphorylation to make ATP 0 Substrate is both the e39 donor and acceptor Ull ll kE EHEFEHDH 0 Includes 0 Lactic Acid and MixedAcid Fermentations O Stickland Rxn 4 Anaerobic Respiration O ETC with use of final e39 acceptor other than 02 there are many options 0 Includes 0 Sulfate Reduction 0 Acetogenesis O Methanogenesis 5 Hydrocarbon Metabolism O Hydrocarbons widely used as e39 donors 0 Can be aerobic or anaerobic Basic Rxn Hydrocarbon gt Alcohol gt Aldehyde gt Acid Other noteworthy stuff 0 Bioremediation use of microorganisms to remove detoxify harmful chemicals in an environment 0 Waste product of one organism can be Substrate of another SUMMARY Photosynthesis generates ATP from light then is consumed in reduction of C02 In Oxygenic photosynthesis O2 is produced while in Anoxygenic it is not Chlorophylls 8 bacteriophylls reside in membranes where light rxns are carried out Antenna chlorophylls transfer light energy to rxn centers Autotrophy is usually done by the Calvin cycle which utilizes the RubisCO enzyme Carboxysomes store RubisCO and CO2 Reverse citric acid and hydroxypropionate cycles are autotrophic pathways in green sulfur and green nonsulfur bacteria Chemolithotrophs conserve energy by oxidizing inorganic electron donors generate proton motive force can usually grow autotrophically Chapter 14 Functional Diversity of Bacteria Phototrophic Bacteria All phototrophic bacteria have chlorophylllike pigments 8 accessory pigments to collect light energy and transfer it to a membranebound rxn center use this energy to drive 6 transfer rxns gt produces ATP Many phototrophic bacteria also pair light energy and carbon fixation through various methods Cyanobacteria Purple Sulfur Purple Green Sulfur Green Nonsulfur

dormant Heterocysts do nitrogen fixation protects Nitrogenases from O2 Carotenoids pigment that helps bacteriochlorophyll absorb more light Sulfur Bacteria Sulfur metabolism is main pathway

HZS gt S0 gt 803392 gt SO4392 Very diverse group Live in marine sediments sulfur springs hydrothermal systems and some terrestrial habitats Nitrogen Bacteria Nitrogen Fixers Diazotrophs turn N2 into NH3 that is then assimilated as a Nitrogen source for the cell Often live symbiotically Carbohydrate N2 Amino Acids gt NH3 C02 LUCA probably used this version of metabolism Nitrifying Organisms done by a pairing of ammonia oxidizers and nitrite oxidizers Basically does the opposite of Nitrogen Fixers Denitrifiers grow by anaerobic respiration of N0339 or N0239 to NO N20 and N2 remove nitrogen from fertilizers 8 generate greenhouse gases Dissimilative IronReducing and IronOxidizing Bacteria Iron Reducers 8 Iron Oxidizers note complications arise since e39 acceptor is an insoluble solid material IronReducing Bacteria couple oxidation of H2 or organic compounds to the reduction of Fe3 or Mn6 Hydrogen Metabolizing Bacteria H2 is a great e39 donor since it39s so electronegative Many bacteria use H2 as donor and 02 as acceptor Use hydrogenases to bind H2 H2 12o2 a H20 Methanotrophs grow using organic compounds lacking CC bonds as e39 donors 8 C sources Are often obligate aerobes but can be anaerobic as well Predatory Bacteria Consume other bacteria via several different methods Can attach to surface of prey 8 acquire nutrients from cytoplasmperiplasm Can invade and replicate
