24. Bacillus subtilis produces Proteolytic Enzymes (G= breaks[-up] proteins) that are used in Laundry Detergents. Such Laundry Detergent Enzymes account for about 30% of the total Worldwide Enzyme Production and represent one of the largest and most successful Applications of modern Industrial Biotechnology. These Enzymes function optimally at Temperatures of 20°C to 60°C and within the pH range of pH 8.0 to 10.5 of a typical Wash Cycle. Bacillus subtilis is a(n) -- A. Acidophile B. Alkalophile. C. Osmophile. D. Halophile. 25. While on a Backpacking Vacation in the Jura Mountains in Southeastern France your Swedish Lab Assistant takes a Spill when climbing some Scree, resulting in a serious Abrasion extending from Hand to Elbow. This Wound clearly requires a Bandage but -- ¡Canasta! ¡Crayola! ¡Cheezy Grits! -- you have no Bandages in your Backpack. Instead, you set-up your Primus, use your Swiss Army Knife to cut Strips of Cloth from your Le Coq Sportif™ Shirt (Brand New!!!), and boil these Strips in Water for 10 Minutes to make what you sincerely hope might be a Sterile Bandage. Which of the following Pathogens might still be a Mischief-Maker within the Bandage, even after this 10 Minute Boiling Step?

MIC 101 Exam 1 Page 15 26. All this Work of setting-up your Primus to boil Strips of your favorite Shirt has made you incredibly Thirsty. A nice, cold Stella Artois would be great right now but instead you add one of your Potable Aqua™ Tablets (Tetraglycine Iodine) to a Liter of Water melted from Snowpack. This melted Snowpack Water is clear so it only takes 15 Minutes to disinfect the Water (but if the Snowpack Water had been cloudy with Organics you would have allowed 30 Minutes). Potable Aqua™ Tablets disinfect Water by -- 27. Most Labs sterilize Glassware via Dry Heat Sterilization, which involves -- 28. US Nuclear Submarines and Aircraft Carries have multiple Continental Refrigerator™ Deep Freeze Units on board. Since US Naval Forces may be away from any friendly Supply Base for as long as a Year it is extremely important that these Units maintain Frozen Food at -- A. -20°C (20°C below 0°C), at which Temperature only Psychrophiles and Facultative Psychrophiles can grow. B. -20° C (20°C below 0°C), at which Temperature only Extreme Psychrophiles can grow. C. -60° C (60°C below 0°C), at which Temperature only Extreme Psychrophiles can grow. D. -60° C (60°C below 0°C), at which Temperature no Bacteria can grow.” STOP! Please perform a Self-Diagnosis for Anal-Cranial Inversion.

    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.
