    (Yaeger RG, 1996). My reasoning behind this is that it had already been proven to work (when using mascara) in the UK experiment and that it is a larger size than Blepharisma japonicum - which would make it easier to see and therefore easier to tell how a product affects it, since ciliates move very quickly and can be hard to count. In fact, they can be so difficult to track that it is nearly impossible to count them without slowing them down, which is why I will be adding drops of Protoslo (a clear, colorless solution that slows the movement of protozoa) into the petri dishes to make it easier to count them. (Mr. Hessler brought this wonderful product. It should be praised for all eternity for its ease of…

    organelles. Taxonomically, Eukaryotes belong to the taxon Eukarya. The three types of eukaryotic microbes are fungi, protozoa, and algae. Because the three types of eukaryotic microbes are all composed of eukaryotic cells, they have basic similarities in cellular structure, including the presence of a nucleus. However, these types of microbes do differ in many significant ways as well. There are many similarities among Eukaryotes but what must be stressed is that these similarities are broad…

    Physiological vaginal discharge does not need medical intervention. However discharge associated with increased quantity, pruritus, and foul smell, with changes in its colour or with blood seeks medical treatment (Panda et al, 2013).There are different types of pathogens causing vaginal discharge and their identification is challenging. Vaginitis caused by bacteria, fungi or protozoa can be associated with altered vaginal discharge and odor (Kataria et al, 2015). Vulval irritation, or pruritus…

    are bacteria, archaea, fungi, protozoa, algae, and viruses. This essay aims to analyse micro-organisms and disease. First the key features of the main categories of micro-organisms and the roles of commensals, and pathogens will be explained respectively. Then mode of transmission, portals of entries and exits of microbes are explained. How our body defence mechanisms prevent from the infections will be discussed after the logical sequence of events that occur from the entry of a micro-organism…

    In terms of nursing diagnosis, the risk of infection is defined as "the state in which an individual is at risk to be invaded by an opportunistic or pathogenic agent (virus, fungus, bacteria, protozoa, or other parasite) from endogenous or exogenous sources" and was approved by NANDA in 1986. The risk of infection could be from any kind of pathogen and the level of infection might also very form patient to patient, based on the type of infection. According to the nursing diagnosis, elevated risk…

    and branching threads. Ranges in diameter between (0.5- 1) µm and in length between (2-4) µm however, they are either a parasite or live independently they are found in all living things and in all environments. Some bacteria in drinking water can cause disease such as salmonella, total coliform (including fecal coliform and E.coli), Shigella, Legionella, and Campylobacter and “their presence indicates that the water may be contaminated by human or animal wastes”. Some bacteria break down…

    proper ratio of microbes are present in the rumen and finally the optimum level of nutrients in the feed must be present. In the rumen fermentation, the microbes (bacteria, 40-50%; protozoa, 40-50% and fungi, 3-4% of total microbial biomass) act synergistically to degrade feed, while archaea and bacteriophages might help indirectly in the fermentation of feed (Kamra, 2005). This synergism might be due to a distinctly different mode of attack on fibrous feeds, therefore these microbial groups do…

    response. The process of evasion also includes endocytosis of VSG-antibody complexes, allowing them to escape detection by the antibodies responsible for complement-mediated killing.2 Antigenic variation prolongs the time that trypanosomes spend within the host, thus allowing for further proliferation and transmission to other hosts via the tsetse vector. This process also allows trypanosomes to infect hosts that already recognize VSGs from prior infections. When the infection proceeds to the…
