32.) pasteurization climinative pathogenic microbes in milk
33.) filtration passage of a liquid or gas through a screenlike material with pores small enough to retain microorganisms
34.) why do microorganisms die in high salt or sugar concentrations? high concentrations of these substances create a hypertonic environment that cause water to leave the microbial cell *this process resembles preservation by desiccation in that both methods deny the cell the moisture it needs for growth
35.) the types of radiation and what they do to cells *ionizing radiation-high energy radiation with a wave length less than 1nm; causes ionization, xrays and gamma rays are ex: *non ionizing radiation-short-wavelength radiation that does not cause ionization; ultraviolet radiation is an example...

36.) disinfectant and antiseptic bacteria disinfectant-any treatment used to inanimate objects or kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms antiseptic-a chemical method for disinfection of the skin or mucous membranes
37.) how do phenols affect bacteria? (carbonic acid) phenolics increase its antibacterial activity in combination with a soap or detergent. phenolics exert antimicrobial activity by injuring lipid-containing plasma membranes which result in leakage of cellular contents
38.) what are bisphenols commonly used in? hexachlorphene-ingredient of a prescription lotion, pH isottex (used for surgical and hospital microbial control procedures)
39.) how does alcohol affect bacteria? usually protein denaturation, but alcohol can also disrupt membranes and dissolve many lipids, including the lipid component of enveloped viruses
40.) which heavy metals can affect bacteria? silver, mercury, copper *otigodynamic action-ability of very small amounts of heavy metals, especially silver and copper to exert antimircobial activity
41.) what do soaps and detergents do? important function in the mechanical removal of microbes through scrubbing *soap breaks the oily films into tiny droplets
42.) quats most widely used surface-active agents are the cationic detergents especially the quaternary ammonium compounds (quats)
43.) what are nitrates and and nitrites used for? added to many meat products as a substitute for oxygen under anaerobic conditions
44.) how do aldehydes affect bacteria? (45.) most resistant to disinfectants-gram negative) (46.) most resistant structures/organisms to disinfection-psuedomonas, burkholdeia, mycobacrterium) (47 next slide) used extensively to preserve biological specimens and inactive bacteria and viruses in vaccines
48.) repressible genes (47.) structure of the bacterial chromosome-single long continuous frequently circularly arrange threads of dbl stranded DNA) mechanism that exhibits gene expression and decreases the synthesis in enzymes
49.) inducible genes process that turns on the transcription of a gene or genes
50.) operon the operator and promoter sites and structural genes they control
51/52.) types of mutations 1.) base substitution-most common type of mutation involving single base pairs (point mutation). (a single base at one point in the DNA sequence is replaced with a different base)
continued... 2.)missense mutation-change in DNA where the base substitution results in amino acid substitution the synthesized protein 3.) nonsense mutations-a base substitution resulting a nonsense codon
