prokaryotes
Prokaryotes

Identified by their

• Shapes

• Chemical nature

of their cell walls

• The ways they

move

• The ways they

obtain energy

slide3
Basic Structure

Cell wall – protects the cell & gives it shape.

Outer membrane – protects the cell against some anibiotics (only present in gram-negative)

Cell membrane – regulates movement of materials into & out of the cell; contains

enzymes important to cellular respiration.

Plasmid – circular piece of DNA that contains some genes obtained through genetic recombination.

Capsule & Slime layer – protect the cell & assist in attaching the cell to other surfaces.

3 basic shapes
3 basic shapes

Bacillus

Coccus

Spirilla

slide5

• Cell Arrangements

– Diplo – cells are paired

– Staphylo – cells are in

grape-like clusters

– Strepto – cells are in

long chains

slide6

Cell Wall• Two different types of cell walls are found in eubacteria• Gram staining helps to tell them apart using two different types of dye– Violet - primary stain– Red - counterstain

slide7

• Gram positive– Bacteria cells containing peptidoglycan absorb only the violet dye – Appear purple in the microscope• Gram negative – Bacteria with a second(outer) layer of lipid and carbohydrate molecules – Extra layer absorbs only the red stain – Appear pink in the microscope

slide8

Gram Staining Bacteria

• Gram Positive – stains purple

• Gram Negative – stains pink

growth and reproduction
Growth and Reproduction
  • Binary Fission: bacterium doubles in size, it replicates its DNA and divides in half.
  • Is this sexual or asexual reproduction?
growth reproduction conjugation
Growth & Reproduction- Conjugation
  • the process by which two living bacteriabind together and one bacterium transfers genetic information to the other.

Sex pili

growth and reproduction12
Growth and Reproduction…
  • Endospore – protects the cell against harsh

environmental conditions, such as heat and drought.

  • May allow the bacterium to survive for thousands of years.
bacillus cereus14
Bacillus cereus
  • (found in soil)
    • straight rods, arranged singly or in pairs
    • cells stain Gram-positive (blue-violet)
aquaspirillum serpens16
Aquaspirillumserpens
    • (found in fresh water)
  • -spiral shaped, arranged singly
  • -cells stain Gram-negative (red)
escherichia coli
Escherichia coli
  • (digest food in your intestines)
    • straight rods, arranged singly or in pairs
    • cells stain Gram-negative (pink)
staphylococcus epidermidis20
Staphylococcus Epidermidis
  • epidermis (found normally on skin)
    • spherical shape
    • cells stain Gram-positive (blue-violet)
