Transcript of Aquificae

Bacteria: The Unseen Kingdom
by Myranda
2,474 species
largest phyulm of Bacteria
causes many diseases
by Maxwell

1,644 species
Don't affect humans directly, but may aid other creatures.
Bio luminescence is caused by proteobacteria
What makes proteobacteria different All proteobacteria are gram-negative, with an outer membrane mainly composed of , lipopolysaccharides. Many move about using flagella, but some are non-motile or rely on bacterial gliding.

. Tetanus
This disease is caused when bacteria gets into an open wound, had caused many deaths but now has a cure.
Its a common worldwide bacterial disease transmitted by the ingestion of food or water contaminated with the feces of an infected person, which contain the bacterium.
Cholera is an infection of the small intestine caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae.
of Bacteria
Plaque Plague is caused by Yersinia pestis. The black plague broke out in Europe in 1347, when a boat coming from Crimea docked at Medina, Sicily. Besides its load, the ship transported the pest, which soon spread throughout Italy. It killed 1/3 of europes population.
Syphilis, caused by the bacterium Treponema pallida, is the most severe sexually transmitted bacterial infection. It triggers, skin eruptions, fever, hair loss and, genital condilloma.
Environments of Aquificae Bacteria
Aquificae are known for living in harsh environments. These special bacteria live in places such as deep ocean vents, deep parts of the Earth's crust, radioactive materials and substances, and hot springs.
Characteristics of DNA

About Its Cells
Gonorrhea is triggered by the Neisseria bacteria and it is transmitted sexually. 62 million people, aged mainly 15 to 29, are affected worldwide, especially in urban areas and of low socioeconomic level. The incubation lasts 3 days, and in men, gonorrhea produces urinary incontinence, urethra pain, reddening, penis burning sensation and testicle inflammation. It can be cured by antibiotics.
Tuberculosis is caused by the Koch bacterium, some symptoms are prolonged coughing, fever, shivering, bloody expectoration, weight loss, sweating, tiredness, and glossy eyes. Antibiotics only cure 50% of people the first time.
.Legionnaire's disease . It causes symptoms similar to flue or pneumonia, accompanied by renal failure. It requires hospitalization and treatment with antibiotics.
Pneumonia effects 1% of all of the worlds population by bacteria (like Aeromonas hydrophila) or viruses.
Aquificae has thermophilic and hyperthermophilic growth characteristics. Aquificae make their own food using chemosynthesis. They are rod shaped and are thought to be some of the oldest bacteria.Aquificae produce their own energy from the reaction of inorganic sources. These bacteria are Gram Negative.
. Anthrax is most famous for its role in bioterrorism war. this disease is very hard to cure. Anthrax reproduces by spores that can live 70 years in soil. It causes internal bleeding and destroys tissue.
Firmicutes are mostly Gram positive bacteria, however there are a few species that stain gram negative.These bacteria produce endospores, which can be resistant to dessication and can survive in extreme conditions. Firmicutes play a large role in the fermentation of wine, cider, and beer.
They have round cells or rod like forms. Their cells walls are gram positive.
This means the cell walls are very strong, its name in Latin translates to firmus = strong, and cutis = skin so they have strong skin!
