6 Size varies Shape varies Mobility varies Figure 28-13 Page 578 SmallLargeCompare relative sizesSize variesThe sizes of bacteria and archaea vary. Mycoplasmacells (left) are about 0.5 µm in diameter, while Thiomargaritanamibiensis cells (right) are about 150 µm in diameter.Shape variesThe shapes of bacteria and archaea vary fromrods such as Bacillus anthracis (left) and spheresto filaments or spirals such as Rhodospirillum.In some species, such as Streptococcus faecalis(right), cells attach to one another and form chains.Mobility variesA wide variety of bacteria and archaea use flagella (left)to power swimming movements. These cyanobacterialcells (right) move by gliding across a substrate.
7 Biology: What is Life? life study of Properties of Life Cellular Structure: the unit of life, one or manyMetabolism: photosynthesis, respiration, fermentation, digestion, gas exchange, secretion, excretion, circulation –processing materials and energyGrowth: cell enlargement, cell numberMovement: intracellular, movement, locomotionReproduction: avoid extinction at deathBehavior: short term response to stimuliEvolution: long term adaptation
8 Homeostasis - metabolism Nutrition ModeEnergy SourceCarbon SourcePhotoautotrophLightCO2ChemoautotrophInorganic chemPhotoheterotrophOrganic chemChemoheterotrophAll of these nutritional modes are found among prokaryotes!Eukaryotes are not as diverse in their nutritional modes.
9 Photoautotrophs - photosynthesis Ancient pathway, but not universalCyanobacteria, Algae, PlantslightCO2 + H2O O2 + CH2OchlorophyllPurple-sulfur bacteriaCO2 + H2S S2 + CH2O

11 Artificial coloration of TEM image But thylakoids shown as green would be natural!The location of bacteriochlorophyll!For the light reactions…In a light microscope image:Thylakoids would not be visible, so green color would appear throughout cytosol with the nucleoid region lighter in color.
13 Chemoautotrophs - N metabolism Cyanobacteria, Rhizobium - N2 fixationH+ + ATP + N2 NH4+Nitrosomonas - nitrification (forms nitrite)2 CO2 + NH4+ NO CH2OPseudomonas - denitrification2 CH2O + 2 NO2- N2 + 2 CO2 + 2 H2O√Which of these processes is demonstratingchemoautotrophism?
14 Nitrosomonas -internal membranes use NH4+ electrons in an ETS to produce ATPATP and protons used to reduce CO2 to CH2O
15 N O=O Rhizobium needs anaerobic conditions to convert N2 into NH4+ Legumes produce heme based molecules and rapid respiration to eliminate oxygen from root nodules that house the bacterium“symbiosis.”O=ONChemical similarity between these two molecules results in competitive inhibition of nitrogen fixation by oxygen.
17 Chemoheterotrophs - common! Escherichia coli and most eukaryotes…even plants!CH2O + O2 CO2 + H2O + ATPCarbohydrate, etc. provides boththe energy sourceandthe carbon sourceWhat is another chemoheterotrophic organism? Give the complete Latin binomial!
18 Chemoheterotrophy Aerobic Respiration CH2O + O2 CO2 + H2O Glycolysis carbohydrate to pyruvate (in cytosol!)Citric Acid Cycle pyruvate to carbon dioxide (in cytosol or matrix)Electron Transport and Oxidative Phosphorylation (in mesosomes or cristae)CH2O + O2 CO2 + H2OAnaerobic FermentationGlycolysis to pyruvate (in cytosol)Fermentive step(s) to return NAD+ to glycolysis (in cytosol)C6H12O6 C3H3O3- C2H5OH + CO2C6H12O6 C3H3O3- H3CCHOHCOO-Notice how fermentation can produce gas or acids…These are just a few of the fermentive possibilities!

33 How do Archaea tolerate the heat? Proteins stabilized by more ionic bridges between amino acid r-groups and more-hydrophobic core amino acidsHeat shock protein (chaperonins) refold denatured proteins…Pyrococcus 121°C for 1 hour!DNA depurination reduced by presence of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate.DNA supercoiling by reverse gyrase reduces denaturationSac7d in Sulfolobus is a minor groove protein increases the DNA melting temperature by 40°CHistone-like proteins help stabilize DNA as wellHeat-resistant di-bi-phytanyl diether lipid membranes (monolayer) prevent delamination of membrane
