Bacteria:

What are BACTERIA?

What are bacteria?

Bacteria are . . .

•  Single-celled organisms found in all types of environments

•  Can only be seen through a microscope - measured in micrometer (one millionth of a meter)

•  Prokaryotes - they do not contain a nucleus

•  Grouped in families - having the same bacterial ancestors. E.g. Enterobacteriaceae

•  A family member is a genus - each genus having developed its own peculiar characteristics. E.g. Escherichia

•   A genus has different species E.g Escherichia Coli (E. Coli)

•  Different shapes, sizes and many other characteristics

Bacterial Purpose / Activities

Bacteria can be harmless, beneficial or harmful (pathogenic) . . .

Harmless

Do not affect humans

Beneficial

Beneficial Bacteria produce enzymes that:

•  Aid food digestion and production of some vitamins - break down complex food molecules into simpler materials (especially in ruminants); Responsible for production of vitamin K and some b vitamins

•  Are Involved in production of many foods eaten by humans - milk souring bacteria are used to produce yogurt, cottage cheese, and buttermilk; other bacteria used to produce vinegar and sauerkraut

•  Are the principal agents of putrefaction - the anaerobic decomposition of organic materials, especially protein (i.e. contains nitrogen); produces foul odors

•  Are the principal agents of decay - the gradual decomposition of organic matter exposed to air by bacteria and fungi.

Harmful (Pathogenic)

Pathogenic  bacteria cause disease by different mechanisms:

•  Directly attack tissues (in other life-forms) - E.g.Bacterial Leaf Spot caused by Pseudomonas cichorii
