Fatal Flu Case Study Gardner Yost November 23, 2008 Microbiology 1. The infection could be caused by a host of different organisms including: bacteria, viruses and fungi. Potential bacteria agents include Pseudomonas, Stapholococcus, streptococcus, moraxella, legionella, and Haemophilus. 2. A. The bacteria, and perhaps some of the large fungi could be seen in a gram stain, however no useful information regarding a fungal cell envelope can be determined from a gram stain. However, any viruses in a gram stain would be invisible due to their size since gram stains primarily reach no higher resolutions than 1000x. B. The typical bacterial cell is between 1-5 micrometers in length and/or diameter. The cells in these patients microscopies are much larger, aroung 10 micrometers, indicating that it is unlike these cells are bacteria. 3. When antibodies are tagged with florescence, they are sure to indentify only a specific cell, because the Fab bonding site will be unique to the antigen present on that cell.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
