    This theory can be further expanded as specific eukaryote cells underwent secondary symbiosis, a process by which the larger host cell engulfs a eukaryote that has previously undergone primary endosymbiosis (McFadden,2001). It is speculated that this phenomenon occurred widely among species,ultimately resulting in the product of many unique and complex organisms present today (McFadden, 2001). Therefore the development and evolution of many species can be attributed to the endosymbiosis between a prokaryote and its host,as it provides the basis for many forms of life present today. Although not all symbioses result in evolution,many symbiotic relationships are highly essentialin maintaining life .Mutualism refers to a symbiotic relationship…

    Normal flora is the colonisation of human tissues by a diverse mixture of microorganisms. This colonisation begins at birth with pioneer species, depending on physiochemical factors. The normal flora inhibits the skin, oral cavity, upper respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, urogenital and conjunctival membranes. They are commensal bacteria; getting shelter and nourishment from the host without causing harm (Gould, 2012). To a healthy individual, most normal flora is harmless, however some…

    What is the relationship between oral and gut microbiome and arthritis disease? The term microbiome or microbiota is defined by Joshua Lederberg (scientist worked in genetic microbiome); these organisms are found in the skin or mucus membrane. They have the ability to extract the necessary energy to stay live. The host utilizes them for digestion, production of nutrients, removal of toxins, attacks on pathogens and to strengthen the immune system (Scher and Abramson, 2011). The Human…

He decided to use this procedure on mice and he found that the Roux-en-Y caused the composition of the gut microbiome to change. Dr. Nicholson believes this explains the sudden disappearance of type 2 diabetes in people. He suspects that part of the web is regulated by the microbiome in a similar way to the formic acid role in the high blood pressure case. He concludes that the intestinal will…
