Part 2

Streptomyces- An important bacteria that we use to create antibiotics and it has linear chromosome
E.Coli bacteria Used to created strains of protein like insulin
Pseudomonas a very pathogenic bacteria that helps clean industrial contaminates specifically Toluene
Why do researches study bacteria is it because they are cheap and reproduce quickly? The main reason we study bacteria is because they are composed on on chromosome and one gene and if you manipulate the gene you change the phenotype
Strain (def?) A strain is a genetically different cell that may have different phenotype
Growth of bacteria is related to The number of bacteria not size
Salmonella gives us food-borne illness and is pathogenic
Colony of cells (def?) A group of cells coming from a single mother cell
Who answer the question- Do bacteria Strain exchange genetic information, is there genetic recombination? The question was answer by Lederberg's experiment, where used auxotrophic E.Coli bacteria, he proved that is was due to genetic exchange that auxotrophic bacteria grew not only because of genetic reversion
Auxotrophic mutant A mutational strain of a microorganism that requires additional nutritional requirements in addition to the those of the normal, wild, or prototrophic strain
Prototrophic strain the un-mutated, normal, or wild strain the does not need any additional requirements in the medium
A bacterial medium is composed of what elements? Carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus
Mutation (def?) Change in the genetic material
Genetic reversion rate (def?) A genetic reversion is a point mutation which changes the mutated nucleotide back to its original state
What is the genetic reversion rate for one mutation in a 10^8 medium? 10^-6 to 10^-7, around 10 to 100 cells in the medium
What is the genetic reversion rate for two mutation in a 10^8 medium? 10^-12 to 10^-14
What is the genetic reversion rate for three mutation in a 10^8 medium? 10^-18 to 10^-21
What did Lederberg use to disprove the argument that dead cells in the medium where not giving the gene to the auxotrophic bacteria Lederberge used cell lysate which removed all the dead cells

Allies (def?) result of a phenotypic change due to a mutation in a gene, allele means morph of another from

Phenotypic screening we used two duplicate plates- one where it contains a full nutritional support ad the other which lacks a nutrient, now the colony that grows in the support plate but doesnt grow in the partial support plate is a mutant
Replia Plating used to screen phenotypes hat can be identified fro phenotypic selections, similar to coping the colony onto different mediums
Lenski's experiment Showed that mutations are not aways bad or slow, he created 12 cultures of E.coli cells and had them in a glucose medium and experimented for around 5 years where he had 10,000 generations and stored bacteria every 75 days
Relative fitness ratio of mutant to prototrophic cells
Lenski's relative fitness in the cell helped in what? the mutations resulted in fitness gain in cellular stress response

Restriction enzymes they are like molecular scissors that cut DNA in a recognized place and usually cuts it into 4,6, or 8 base pairs
Cohesive or sticky endes short, single strand overhangs that if they want to be ligated by DNA ligase they had needed to be cut by the same Restriction enzyme
Blunt ends like a blunt, flat and could be ligated to different blunt ends that were not cut by the same restriction enzymes
DNA ligase attaches the 5' phosphate groups to the 3' hydroxyl end and reforms the phosphodiester bond b

Origin of replication there are three types:1-ones that have replication sites but make one copy 2- ones that make multiple copies with only one restriction site 3- ones that have no restriction site but are able to combine to the bacterial genome
selective marker gene as stated in the term: it is a selectable marker which select for cells that have successfully taken up the plasmid for the purpose of expressing the insert and it allows us to see which bacteria has the plasmid
multiple cloning sites (MCS) a plasmid with multiple restriction site that has a larger number of restriction enzymes that are able to cut the plasmid
small size we want a small size where we could place a large piece of DNA of interest
high copy number a trait we want due to our interest in having many copies

Phage vectors As presented in the name phages which means viruses,
One set back that we had to fix with phage vectors is what Phage usually integrate into the bacterial genome as a result we had to remove the integration excision gene to stop it from integrating
Does removing the integration excision gene affect viral replication it does not, one it is cut out we place our gene of interest and have it replicate

How does the Botulin toxin inhibit the release of neurotransmitters like actyl colin Once the B subunit binds to the axon and gets into the endosome A subunit goes and binds to SNAP 25 protein and breaks it so it cant attach to synaptobrevin
How does the Tetnas toxin inhibit the release of Glycine and GABA like actyl colin GABA and glycine are inhibitory molecule that inhibit the release of acytlo colin a neurotransmitter by after the B subunit get to the cell the A sub unit goes to the CNS and transfers to the inhibitory neuron and binds to synaptobrevin and breaks it

When the receptor complex between antigen presenting cell and the helper T cell how many helper t cells are activated Only 0.001% of helper T cells are activated and little are proliferated and they undergo cytokine reproduction
What is cytokin and why do helper T cell secret them Cytokins are small peptides that are not able to enter the bilayer or the cytoplasm of a cell and they induce an inflammatory response
Why is inflammation a good thing inflammation brings different types of cells to the infected area and localize the infect in that place so it does not spread
Why are so different about superantigens superantigens are able to produce T cells without the CD4 binding complex to the major histocompatibility complex and allows different T cells to be activated

Could we have endotoxin and superantigen activated at the same time what is the term called its called Synergistic effect , and For sure, superantigens activate many helper T cell one of which has the unique receptor and co receptor that could bind to CD14 and the endotoxins could be activated
Is both a superantigen and endotoxin are both activated what is the percentage of the two toxins MUCH greater than the sum of both of them combined
