Bacterial vaginalis is a simple infection of a women’s pH balance being off. This is due to a women having more harmful bacteria than good bacteria in her vagina [4]. A woman’s body is known to fight off certain bacteria especially in areas such as the vagina. With this, a woman’s normal balance is off due to the bacteria. Bacterial vaginosis is normally found in women around the ages of 15-44 [4]. Statistics shows that one of three women in the United States end up having bacterial vaginosis [7]. Bacterial vaginosis is where lactobacilli is absent from the vaginal area which have an overgrowth of gram negative bacteria and…

    within the genome. When the F plasmid is integrated into the genome, the host cell has a high frequency of recombination (Hfr). The donor (F+) transfers DNA to the recipient (F-) and is integrated by homologous recombination but remains F-. Cavalli-Sforza and Lederberg showed that the even though the F- and Hfr had a high recombination frequency, it remained F- (Jayaraman, 2011). Bernard Davis performed a U-tube experiment that determined that physical contact between two cells was needed to…

    stationary phase and even death phase. Looking at the second graph which compared the absorbance in the Spec 20 related to time, there was a linear increase at 37° but not as much of an increase in absorbance at 30°. At 37°, the absorbance went from .075 to .140 which shows a doubling of bacterium colonies that formed. At 30 degrees, there is less of steady increase of growth because at 30 minutes the absorbance value was .14 and at 60 minutes the absorbance value was .13 which was unusual…

    bacteria, and under what circumstance the bacteria could be resistant to that particular drug. (5 pts) As the name implies 50s subunit protein synthesis inhibitors such as erythromycin inhibit protein synthesis by binding to the 50S subunit of the 23S rRNA molecule of the bacterial ribosome. This ultimately acts to block the exit of the growing peptide chain. It should be noted that gram+ bacteria more effectively accumulate erythromycin than gram negative bacteria thereby making it more…

    When trying to figure out the cellular morphology and arrangement the T-streak method is used to get isolated colonies from a sample of a bacteria. To begin the process a petri plate which has a layer of agar is divided into three sections in a T form. When preforming an experiment aseptic techniques are used between each step, therefore you flame the loop before and after every step. A sample is taken from a culture with an inoculated loop, then is spread in the top section of the plate in…
