Eukaryotes and Viruses

Chapters 12 and 13


Fungi
Fungi

Heterotrophic, Mainly Opportunistic Pathogens


Distinguishing characteristics of fungi
Distinguishing Characteristics of Fungi

  • Chemoheterotrophic

  • Cells walls composed of Chitin

  • Diverse Metabolic Capabilities for Complex Carbohydrates

  • Xerophilic

  • Aerobic/Facultative Anaerobes

  • Prefer Low pH


Vegetative growth
Vegetative Growth

  • Filamentous Fungi

  • Yeasts

  • Dimorphic Fungi


Filamentous fungi
Filamentous Fungi

  • Hyphae (individual strands)

    • Septate

    • Coenocytic

  • Mycelium (mass of hyphae)

  • Aerial Hyphae

  • Mass of Conidia


Yeast
Yeast

  • Bud

  • Bud Scar

  • Pseudohyphae


Dimorphic fungi
Dimorphic Fungi

  • Medically very important

  • Hyphae in the Environment, Yeast in the host

  • Temperature and CO2 are common triggers


Fungal lifecycle
Fungal Lifecycle

  • Haplodiplontic Lifecycles

  • Asexual Cycle

  • Sexual Cycle


Haplodiplontic life cycle
Haplodiplontic Life Cycle

Gametophyte

(n)

Haploid

Egg

Spores

Sperm

Zygote

Sporocyte

Sporophyte

(2n)

Embryo

Sporangia

Diploid


Asexual spores
Asexual Spores

  • Genetically Identical to the parent

  • Genetically Haploid

  • Several Types

    • Conidia

    • Blastoconidia

    • Arthroconidia

    • Chlamydoconidia

    • Sporangiospores


Sexual spores
Sexual Spores

  • Haploid Spores Arising from a Diploid Cell

  • Genetic Recombination of compatible mating types

  • Fungi are classified on the basis of their sexual cycles.


Medically important phyla
Medically Important Phyla

  • Zygomycota

  • Ascomycota

  • Basidiomycota

  • Deuteromycota (Asexual Fungi)


Zygomycota
Zygomycota

  • Coenocytic Hyphae

  • Not a phylogentically distinct group.

  • Sporoangiospores and Zygospores

  • Rhizopus is a common genus.


Ascomycota
Ascomycota

  • Septate Hyphae and Yeasts

  • Largest group of classified fungi

  • Most Deuteromycota are classified in this group by Genetics

  • Ascospores(in an ascus) and Conidia


Basidiomycota
Basidiomycota

  • Septate Hyphae

  • Basidiospores produced on Basidium, some produce conidia (though this is crude terminology)


Deuteromycota
Deuteromycota

  • Depreciated, though still used Taxon

  • Holding Phyla with no observed sexual state

  • Most have been reclassified as Ascomycota based on Genetics

  • Leads to confusion over nomenclature

    • Telomorph : Sexual State (preferred name)

    • Anamorph : Asexual State (common name)


Fungal disease
Fungal Disease

  • Mycoses are not common but difficult to treat.

  • Mycoses are defined by the depth of tissue affected.

  • Most fungi are either superficial or opportunistic pathogens… though overt pathogens exist.



Protozoa
Protozoa

Diverse Unicellular Eukarya Pathogens


Protozoans
Protozoans

  • Phylogenetically, a diverse and ill-defined group.

  • Medically we are worried about the heterotrophs, not the photosynthetic phyla

  • Complex lifecycles with unique stages

    • Trophozoite

    • Schizogony

    • Cyst


Protists are not monophyletic
Protists Are NOT Monophyletic


Archaezoa
Archaezoa

  • Lack Mitochondria, but possess relics called mitosomes.

  • Move by means of Flagella

  • Possess two nuclei.

Giardia intestinalis


Microspora
Microspora

  • No mitochondria

  • No microtubules

  • Obligate intra-cellular pathogens

  • Common in AIDS


Amoebozoa
Amoebozoa

  • Phylogenetically these organisms are not linked to a definite clade.

  • Movement through pseudopods


Apicomplexa
Apicomplexa

  • Named for the Apical complex, an organelle used for cell penetration.

  • Complex Lifecycles with both a definitive and intermediate host


Plasmodium species
Plasmodium species


Eugelnozoa
Eugelnozoa

  • Hemoflagellates, more appropriately called Kinetoplastids, are the pathogenic members.

  • Possess unique single mitochondrion called kinetoplasts.

  • Many are Parasitic


Helminths
Helminths

The Worms


Characteristics of pathogens
Characteristics of Pathogens

  • They may lack a digestive system

  • They have a reduced nervous system

  • Lacking or atrophied movement systems

  • Complex reproductive systems

  • May be dioecious or monoecious


Platyhelminthes
Platyhelminthes

  • Flatworms, so called for overall flat body plan.

  • Actually the Subphylum Neodermata

  • All have a Neodermis (also called a cuticle) to protect them from the host and lack adaptations such as eyepores (found in free-living flatworms)


Trematodes
Trematodes

  • Flukes

  • Ventral and Oral Sucker to attach to host tissue.

  • Life Cycles involve more than a single host and mutiple developmental stages


Schistosoma life cycle
Schistosoma Life Cycle


Cestodes
Cestodes

  • Tapeworms

  • Three body sections, scolex, neck and proglottids

  • No digestive system

  • Mature proglottids are released through feces of host.


Phylum nematoda
Phylum Nematoda

  • Roundworms, due to the circular body cross-section.

  • Not to be confused with Phylum Annileda, the segmented worms (i.e. Earthworms)

  • Complete digestive systems

  • Sexually dimorphic

  • Numerous through out the environment
