At a depth of almost 11,000 feet literally lined the bottom "carpet" of microorganisms. Clue to the origin of life on Earth, and probably beyond can be hidden in the deepest spot on the planet - the Mariana Trench. Explore a unique video footage and samples obtained during the March mission deep Hollywood director James Cameron, the scientists discovered bizarre forms of life. For example, at a depth of nearly 11,000 feet literally lined the bottom of "carpet" of microorganisms.
On closer inspection, you can see that "litter" is, as it were of the strange whisker Read more [...]
Clue to the origin of life on Earth, and probably beyond can be hidden in the deepest spot on the planet - the Mariana Trench, scientists say.Explore a unique video footage and samples obtained during the March mission deep Hollywood director James Cameron, the scientists discovered bizarre forms of life. For example, at a depth of nearly 11,000 feet literally lined the bottom of "carpet" of microorganisms.
According to scientists, this is so-called "bedding" consists of filamentary "bush" on underwater rocks, which seem to provide these microorganisms "chemical" Read more [...]
In the upper troposphere (6 to 10 miles) is home to many microorganisms. Their composition varies especially in tropical storms, soobshayut NASA specialists and Georgia Institute of Technology in an article published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Microorganisms play an important role in the life of the atmosphere - they, in particular, influence the formation of clouds and precipitation. At altitudes lower than 5 kilometers of microbial cells up to 3 microns comparable to the number of ice particles of the same size. Living cells can "work" condensation nuclei Read more [...]
on December 29. Unusual foam storm in England.
The foam consists of proteins and fat molecules formed by the surf from marine microorganisms. These microorganisms are known as phaeocystis, form large colonies in the water that are kept together in the form of a gelatinous mass. The foam is formed when the wind sweeps away the decaying remains of these colonies, and submits them to the shore.
Cm. also: Cappuccino-Cape town - ocean foam on the shore Read more [...]
Modern conventional medicine today U.S. terminology may be defined as "allopathic medicine". This means that patients diagnosed with these or other disorders and diseases are issued special synthetic chemicals - antibiotics, they have to destroy microorganisms that cause this particular ailment. Modern antibiotics are working quite well and generally cope with the intended purpose - to deliver the leadership in the body, the native cells from the invading parasites. So most of us can easily take antibiotics without any ulterior motives.
However, in our body are also useful and even Read more [...]
In dental practice it is very difficult to diagnose chronic inflammation of the parotid glands (GA Zedgenidze, 1953 JF Romacheva, 1953 VS Kovalenko, 1969; Rauch, 1959).
In this paper, we set a goal - to determine the nature of the microbial flora of the seeded secret glands, explore its cultural and pathogenic properties and explore the cellular composition of secretions of glands involved in the pathological process to diagnose chronic parotitis.
In the maxillofacial department Poltava Regional Hospital examined 25 patients with chronic parotitis. Among them were 10 men and 15 women. Patients Read more [...]
Living organisms in the soil are a group of unicellular (bacteria, fungi, actinomycetes, viruses, protozoa). They are involved in the cycle of matter in nature. The main criterion of group membership is the ability to thrive in the soil. Specific functions of individual groups identified (nitrogen-fixing bacteria, nitrifying, cellulose, etc.). The number of microorganisms in the soil in the hundreds of millions and billions of dollars in one gram of soil, and the total mass of bacteria on 1 hectare up to 7 tons largest number of micro-organisms at a depth of 50 cm (in the root systems of higher Read more [...]
Pathogenicity - A sign of microorganism species, manifested in its ability to cause disease in the host's host - in natural and experimental conditions. Pathogens seem to have occurred in the evolution of the relationship of saprophytic microbes and macro by selecting and long adaptation (adaptation) saprophytic to a parasitic way of life in a living organism. Many pathogenic microbes in their morphological and cultural properties are very close to the saprophytic members of the same family.
Pathogenicity (From the Greek. Pathos - disease and gennao - generators), pathogens - their ability Read more [...]
Infectious or contagious, disease caused by pathogenic microorganisms. Their main property is the ability to spread from person to person with a tendency to a high incidence in the population.
Disease, or pathogenic micro-organisms, is the causative agent of infectious diseases, are a tiny creature, visible only through a microscope at very high magnification.
World of microbes that live on our planet, it is extremely large and diverse. Among the vast kingdom of these tiny organisms are useful for many people: they contribute to soil fertility, cause fermentation and decay of dead organisms (and Read more [...]
Inflammatory process in the periodontium is a local manifestation of the response of periodontal tissue complex damaging agents.
In turn, the ability to cause damage to the causative agent, the intensity of the inflammatory response and the nature of its course determined by the state of defense mechanisms of tissue-retaining device supporting the teeth, which are closely linked to the state of protection factors (reactivity) of the organism as a whole.
Etiologic role of microbial factors in the development of inflammatory periodontal disease is well recognized.
Even with clinically intact periodontium Read more [...]
Bacterial dust (Correct - microbial dust). Dust particles often carry the bacteria. In cases where these microorganisms are pathogenic bacterial penetration of dust can lead to disease (airborne infection). Infection can also occur by ingestion of particles on the surface of the wound.
A significant number of dust particles suspended in the air (1-5 microns) may be there for a long time and reach with a jet of air inhaled terminal bronchioles, and, possibly, the alveoli. As dust particles can persist even such labile microorganisms, such as the influenza virus. The possibility of contamination Read more [...]
Antibiotics - microbial substances, animal or plant origin, which selectively inhibit the viability of microorganisms. Most antibiotics used in medical practice, derived from actinomycetes (ray fungi).
Antibiotics are very effective in the treatment of many infectious diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, protozoa, spirochetes, rickettsia, major viruses. The doctrine of antibiotics is closely linked with the problem of the antagonism of various microbial species. Currently, more than 2,000 described antibiotics studied in whole or in part the structure of more than 600, of which a number of synthesized. Read more [...]
Aerobe - Microbes, grows well only with free access of oxygen, and growing, as a rule, on the surface of culture media (sartsiny, Vibrio, Pseudomonas, hay, anthrax bacillus, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, etc.). Distinguish among aerobes as microaerophilic, needing only a small amount of oxygen, and optional aerobes, that can grow without air. See also Bacteria.
Aerobes [from Greek. aer - air and b (ios) - Life] - organisms that have the type of aerobic respiration, that is, the ability to live and grow only in the presence of free oxygen in the air. Aerobes used as a source for the life of the Read more [...]
Developed methods of biological degradation of toxic substances are [10, 17], aerobic and anaerobic processes, both in enzymes and natural strains of microorganisms, recombinant and mutant strains. This method is able to provide a complete destruction of both the agents and their neutralization products, giving as the final product water, methane and carbon dioxide - is harmless substances.
Noted  that in addition to a high degree of degradation of the substance and specificity biotechnology destruction of chemical agents and their neutralization products favorably with the physical and chemical Read more [...]
