LECTURE 10 MICROBIAL EVOLUTION amp Classification HgJOJ4 SUmmnd a Fossilized photosynthetic microbial mats The earliest organisms probably did not have any DNA They consisted of RNA and just a few if any proteins When selfreplicating RNA molecules became enclosed in membranes they became the rst cellular life forms Soon proteins become main cellular enzymes Using DNA as the genome likely resulted from the need to store genetic information in a more stable form What is the origin of eukaryotes Many theories eg 1 Archaealike cells evolved a nucleus endomemhranes and cytosketeton 2 Endosymhiotic

energy is used to reduce 602 Photosynthesis is the conversion of light energy to chemical energy usually using only 602 as a carbon source Photosynthesis exists in all 3 domains of life although eukaryotes are photosynthetic only Via the presence of symbiotic organelles Phototrophy is wide spread in bacteria and appears to be a very ancient trait fossil stromatolites in rock over 3 billion years old show photosynthetic prokaryotes Fig 1014 Modem day smmzmliles in Au 392 Photosynthesis is perhaps the most important biological process on the planet Produces most organic carbon on Earth These organisms completely transformed the planet The earliest photosynthesis was anoxygenic did not produce 02 gas Oxygenic photosynthesis created our atmosphere including the ozone layer which

on staining someone asked about the role of iodine in the Gram stain I said it is a mordant a chemical that helps fix dye on or in a cell which is true the iodine reacts with the crystal violet making a larger compound that cannot escape through the pores in the peptidoglycan layer of Gram Bacteria Also the decolorization step is thought to shrink the pores in the peptidoglycan layerthus further

infection Other defenses The In ammatory Response removes invaders H N DJ from an injured area via one or more of the following dilation of capillaries allows more phagocytes to get to the invaders release of chemotactic factors attracts phagocytes to the area increased permeability of capillary walls allows phagocytes to get into damaged tissues clot formation blocks further invasion in large wounds See figure 1510 The Immune Response just enough immunology so that we can understand the basics of how the immune system responds to microbes and viruses some concepts and terminology Antigens molecules to which the immune system responds Common antigens are found on the outside of cells or viruses eg polysaccharide portion of the LPS of gram bacteria Other antigens include pili agella porin proteins and exotoxins Outer proteins of viruses are also good antigens Almost an protein greater than 1000 daltons in size can be an antigen but most 10000 daltons Antigens from body g erator substances that elicit an immune response Epitopes or antigenic determinants specific molecular sites that antibodies bind to on antigens Fig 163 Antibodies belong to the immunoglobulin superfamily of molecules Table 161 shows the main types of immunoglobulins These molecules function as the feelers that detect and bind to antigens Don39t memorize all the different types of immunoglobulins Fig 163

vectors and often reservoirs main reservoirs are wild birds and mammals see Figure 613 eg West Nile Virus an emerging disease Middle East to New York in 1999 and has now spread all the way to

compared to 2003 This is because the birds reservoirs either died from the disease or became immune s the reservoir of the disease greatly decreased this is why the disease spreads in a wavelike

Treatment via GRAVITY Raw sewage is passed through series of screens The sewage is allowed to settle in the sedimentation tank yielding sludge This process typically removes 50 of the solids and 25 of the BOD Sewage trmlment Other secondary treatment processes Lagoons Sewage is channeled into shallow ponds Algae and cyanobacteria provide 02 for the aerobic organisms in the pond to degrade the sewage Artificial Wetlands Similar to lagoons except they provide a habitat for birds and other wildlife Figure 313 Sewage trmlment Tertia treatment of Effluent o Nitrates removed by denitrification

Secondary treatment Treatment via MICROBIAL ACTIVITY Naturally occurring and inoculated microbes oxidize organic material into CO2 Aerobic conditions must be maintained via mixing in an aerator Oxidation is greatly enhanced by formation of bio lms Bio lmsFlocsMicroorganisms living in communities suspended in liquidish environments attached to surfacs sometims gravel This process can remove
