The rash first appears on the wrist and the ankles then spreads in either directions up or down the legs and arms. Other symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain that mimics appendicitis, deep muscle pain, lack of appetite, or red eyes. RMSF is transmitted to humans by a bite of a tick infected with the disease. When an infected tick bites and attaches itself to a human host for at least six to ten hours, transmission of the bacteria may occur. Destroying a tick with your fingers may also transmit the bacteria.
Unknown Lab Report Mikee Lianne Gonzales Biol 351- 1005 Holly Martin Unknown: # 76 Abstract This report is about identifying the respective genus of the given unknown organism. The goal is to show and prove the student’s understanding of microbiology and laboratory learned experimental techniques.
Ringworm (Tinea) The disease is primarily known as Ringworm but it can also identified as Tinea or Dermatophytosis. Ringworm can spread by coming in contact with people who already have Ringworm or even animals. It is also spread through sharing dirty items such as combs, towels etc. It could also be developed if you come in contact with any of the fungi which are trichophyton, microsporum and epidermophyton they normally live as spores in soil.
The bacteria stated prior, Borrelia Burgdorferi, is the cause of the disease and the stem of the problem. The bacteria cannot survive alone for longer than a few hours so it finds a “host” to survive inside of (MD). The most common hosts are ticks, mice, and other small mammals (MD). The bacteria has a reproduction cycle of 28-30 days, almost identical to the moon cycle (TOL). The bacteria has been known to align itself with the moon cycle, causing its victims to have noticeably worsening symptoms during full moons cycle.
Rough Mountain spotted fever is a standout amongst the most generally known tick-borne sicknesses to influence pooches. It has a place with a class of illnesses known as Rickettsia; bar molded microorganisms that take after microbes, yet which act like infections, duplicating just inside living cells. Rickettsia rickettsii is the creature in charge of Rocky Mountain spotted fever lives parasitically in ticks and is transmitted by chomp to vertebrate hosts. Certain breeds will probably add to a serious response to the R. rickettsii life form than others; these incorporate thoroughbred pooches and German shepherds. The signs and indications of Rocky Mountain spotted fever change as per the kind of ailment the puppy has.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. The disease is spread through the bite of a deer tick. The ticks are carried by several different animals that live in wooded areas. They range from deer, raccoons, skunks, to chipmunks and squirrels. (WebMD).
Unknown Lab Report Unknown # 25 By: Jenna Riordan March 19, 2018 Bio 2843 1. Introduction Microbiology is the study of microorganisms found in all different environments throughout Earth, from the hot thermal vents at the bottom of the ocean to the ice at the top of a mountain.
Lyme disease Lyme disease is an infection transmitted by deer ticks and black-legged ticks. Individuals usually come in contact with this disease is in wooded or grassy areas that is very prominent in the united states and 60 other countries. It is estimated that in the united states there are more than 300,000 cases per year, but Lyme disease is a very hard infection to diagnose some cases are not accounted for. The symptoms of Lyme disease mimic many other diseases and that is why it can be misdiagnosed most of the time for fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s, ALS, alzheimers, or multiple sclerosis. Lyme disease can affect people of all ages but it is most common in people who spend extended periods of time outside or are in
covers up rather than kills the ticks. "Lyme Borreliosis also called Lyme disease, which comes from the deer tick, can cause stiffness, lameness, swollen joints, loss of appetite, fever and fatigue"(canine tick borne disease). Your dog may not show signs right away but signs can start to appear months after the dog has been infected of the disease. The highest risk seasons for Lyme disease is late spring and early fall. Lyme disease is an acute disease which means it's a short but rapid course.
This plague is bacterial, which means that it is easily treated with antibiotics. The key to being able to survive this plague is being able to recognize the symptoms early on, so you can get treated. If any person were to experience any symptoms of this disease, they should immediately seek treatment. If anyone starts to see signs of this disease after they visit the Yosemite National Park, I urge that they seek medical treatment immediately. Many of the symptoms related to this disease are chills, nausea, fever, swollen lymph nodes, headaches and weakness.
After incubation, a gram stain was performed one the colonies that were isolated. First, the organism was smeared onto a slide with a loop full of distilled water. The smear was heat fixed to provide the bacteria to stick to surface. Next, the staining started by using crystal violet for 60 seconds, rinsed with distilled water. Then iodine for 60 seconds, rinsed with
The first symptom was swelling in the groin and armpits ("Black Death"). These swellings were painful and they seeped blood and pus ("Black Death"). Some other symptoms that would begin after the swelling were fever, chills, vomiting, diarrhea, and aches and pains
After a gram stain was done unknown #257 was identified as a gram positive organism because when observed under the microscope the organism appeared purple with cocci in clusters. The organism was also catalase positive which means that it produced enzyme catalase and bubbled when hydrogen peroxide was added to it.
Prokaryotic organisms normally have a cytoplasmic membrane, cell wall, and sometimes a capsule. Bacterial cells are most commonly either coccus or bacillus in shape. The cell wall is either Gram positive or Gram negative. When the cell is Gram negative, the cell has an extra layer of lipopolysaccharides. The Gram positive has a thick layer of peptidoglycan. Bacteria usually have capsules, but archaea rarely have one. Inside the prokaryote is cytoplasm and a nucleoid. The nucleus is not enclosed inside of a membrane in prokaryotes. The cell may have appendages to adhere to certain surfaces or for motility. The prokaryotic cell is smaller than the eukaryotic cell and has different qualities that make the cell less complex than a eukaryotic cell.
