Microbes and disease name

  1. 1. Microbes and DiseaseName:_________<br />List 6 methods by which pathogens are transmitted and gain entry to the body <br />How are some of these diseases transmitted? <br />Athlete´s Foot:<br />Cholera:<br />Measles:<br />Malaria:<br />Syphilis:<br />Tetnus:<br />Case Study: Streptecoccus <br />Extracellular bacteria <br /><ul><li>damages tissues form outside cells</li></ul>Presence produces antibodies known as opsonins <br />Produce acute diseases <br /> -begin rapidly<br /> -last a short time<br /> -distinct symptoms<br />Virulence of Streptococcus <br /><ul><li>G +ve
  2. 2. Strep-throat, tonsilitis, rheumatic fever, scarlet fever
  3. 3. Produces virulence factors </li></ul> -producd by plasmids<br /> -cause pathogenicity <br />Case Study: Chlamydia <br />Intracellular bacteria<br /> -replicate in phagocytes or epithelial cells<br />Causes chronic disease<br /> -persists for a long time <br />Developmental lifecycle of Chlamydia <br />Toxins <br />Chemicals released by pathogen especially bacteria<br />2 types<br /> -exotoxins e.g. Salmonella <br /> -enterotoxins e.g. Clostridium tetani <br />More about exotoxins <br /><ul><li>main types</li></ul>1. Toxins that act upon connective tissue<br /> -allows further spread of bacteria and therefore infection of underlying tissues<br /> -Staphylococcus aureus produces hyaluronidase <br /><ul><li> Toxins that act as enzymes</li></ul> -enter cells and affect their metabolism<br /> -Diptheria exotoxin <br /><ul><li> Membrane damaging toxins</li></ul>-puncture cell membrane killing cells<br /> -C. perfringens produces phospholipase that digests the plasma membrane <br />
