shell capsid made of envelope phospholipid capsomers bilayer o Bacteriophagebacteria 0 Common virus can still have n uenza herpes complex form etc 0Virus Genome Diversity DNA and RNA viruses 0 Not limited to doublestranded DNA 0Require living cell for replication 0 Lysis DESTRUCTION breaking of cell membrane 0 Burst size of viruses released from one infected cell Virus life 1Vira genome enters

Free particles transmitted to new host g Temperate lysogenic viruses 0 AKA the sneaky ones 0 Maintained in latent stage dormantquiescent 0 Viral genome integrates into host cell DNA prophage so each time cell divides copies of viral genome are made 0 Then triggered by stress exits DNA and continues in lytic cycle 0 Called latency animal viruses or lysogeny bacterial 0 Possible outcomes of viral infection in animals o Lysis 0 Cancer 0 Persistent infection slow release without actually killing the cell 0 Latent infection present but not replicating triggered by stimulus then enters lytic

Dilute aqueous environment Feral with few solutes lots of water H399 y Cell 39 concentrated Turgor pressure is great water 0 0 High pressure 0 environment 0 If you put a cell in a dilute aqueous environment the cell would expand and lysis ow of water molecules go from the dilute lots of water environment to the highly concentrated little water cell Possible solutions 0 Pump water out 0 Have a cell wall most common 0 Live in isotonic environments 0 Cell Wall in Bacteria 0 Made of peptidoglycan o GramStain correlates with cell wall structure Grampositive staining bacteria stain purple because of thick peptidoglycan layer outside of cytoplasmic membrane Gramnegative staining bacteria stain pink because have outer membrane on top of having a thinner peptidoglycan layer 0 Peptidoglycan Single molecule Elastic strong ONLY BACTERIA Porous Provides protection from lysis shape involved in cell division Main components 0 M N acetylmuramic acid sugars make carbon backbone G N acetylglucosamine peptide bridges connect them How is it assembled Everythinginside cell but is built outside in cytoplasm Makes one building block one G one M one peptide inside hook it to lipid carrier bactoprenol and diffuses across membrane Transglycosylases and transpeptidases break existing peptidoglycan so can add the new subunits When we want to stop the spread of bacteriawe target peptidoglycan Lysozyme enzyme in our ears skin saliva etc degrades peptidoglycan o Grampositive cell envelope Thicker layer of peptidoglycan Dyes purple with gram stain Glycopolymers Teichoic acids important for cell shape cell division pathogenesis and antibiotic resistance 2 types lipoteichoic lipids and wall teichoic Linking proteins 0 Attached to cell wall involves enzymes called sortases that connect them to peptidoglycan o Gramnegative cell envelope More complex than gramnegative bacteria Thinner peptidoglycan layer Dyes pink with gram stain Have extra membrane Outer Membrane which is structurally and compositionally different than cytoplasmic membrane 0 Inner half typical phospholipids Outer half different molecule lipospolysaccharide Permeability barrier tend to be more resistant to antibiotics than gramneg bacteria 0 Contains porins channel proteins hollow tubes nutrients Periplasm additional space between membranes because of extra outer membrane 0 Lipopolysaccharide endotoxinLPS Great structural diversity o Ospecific polysaccharide core polysaccharide Lipid A o KDO Detodeoxyoctanoic Acid only found in LPS in the core Can be toxic to animals 0 Summary 0 Peptidoglycan generally thin if thicker layer then the o bacteria grampositive 0 Outer Membrane contains LPS and porins o Periplasm uniaue compartment with peptidoalvcan Not all bacteria have a cell wall 0 Mycoplasma lack cell wall restricted to living within animals some are human pathogens 0 0 Outside the Cell oPili and Fimbrae 0 Protein laments 0 Movement 0 Attachment help bacteria attachother cells 0 Protection 0Capsules aka slime glycocalyx 0 Usually polysaccharide Hydration Protection from phagocytosis Attachment May allow some bacteriabe diseases 0 Hydrophilic Flagellum o Motility rotary motoruses protons to drive rotation 0 Larger than pili 0 Attachment 0 Made of basal body connects freemoving Different bacteria different uses of agellum Ex some use all agellum grouped together in counter clockwise motion 0 Some use agellum individually in clockwise motion Liquid swimming Solid swarming often hyper agellated Without agella gliding or twitching pili Taxis directed movement Bacteria move towards light oxygenproducing cell etc to cell hook lament O 0000 0 Commercial Uses of Polvsaccharides Xanthum gum 0 Highly viscous even at low concentration and tolerant to variations in pH temperature electrolytes etc 0 Food industry use jams sauces icings 0 Industrial use explosives textiles paints o Pharmaceuticals and cosmetic use gt Produced by naturally occurring bacteria 0 0 Comparison Archaea and Bacteria Structurally similar prokaryotic cell structure organelles Some archaea have histones package DNA vs bacteria have histonelike proteins Archaea cell membranes have etherlinked lipids vs bacteria have esther bonded lipids Most archaea have cell wall but never peptidoglycan vs bacteria have peptidoglycan Archaea have several different cell wall types 0 0 Differences between Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic Cells Nucleus membranebound in eukaryotes Volume 0 Eukaryotes bigger advantage have more stuff but then have to move a lot too Organelles and internal membrane systems Trafficking inside cell via cytoskeleton External structures fungalplant cell wall and animal extracellular matrix 0 0 Recognition of Microbial Structures PRP Pattern Recognition Protein MAMP Microbe associated molecular pattern Cells phagocytes have PRP to recognize bacteria structures We have different proteins for different recognition of microbes Microbes can vary MAMPs to avoid recognition by immune system
