  1. antibiotics
    microorganism that inhibits other microorganisms
  2. antimicrobial drugs
    chemical used internally
  3. MIC
    (minimum inhibitory concentration) to test bacteria growth in dilution of antibiotic in nutrient growth
  4. bacteriostatic
    bacteria growth
  5. bacteriocidal
    no growth
  6. carbohydrates
    chemical reaction that releases energy from decomposition
  7. catabolism
    molecule that contains carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen
  8. hydrolytic enzymes
    leaves the cell and breaks down, by adding h2o
  9. differentiate oxidative catabolism and fermentative catabolism.
    • oxidative catabolism=oxygen is presence. 
    • fermentative catabolism= doesnt require oxygen, but may occur in its presence
  10. fermentation
    an anaerobic (w/o oxygen) cellular process in which organic foods are converted into simpler compounds, and chemical energy is made.

    • clear
    • dark blue
  12. OF-Glucose:

    ________ color = uses glucose aerobically.
    ________ color = ferments glucose
    ________ color = doesnt use glucose
    • yellow top

  14. protein hydrolysis: (gelatin hydrolysis)

    to liquify
    warm water at 50 degree C
  15. protein hydrolysis: (gelatin hydrolysis)

    to solidify

    • cherry red
  22. respiration reduction
    electron passed from one molecule to another (one gaining e- = reduce; losing e- = oxidised)
  23. aerobic respiration
    requires oxygen in order to generate energy
  24. anaerobic respiration
    oxygen is absent/scarce
  25. respiration: (nitrate reduction)

    if gas is obscured, it is __________.
  26. in Catalase test, bubble indicate _______.
    positive catalase
