Describe what happens to an innate immune cell that encounters the pathogen.
Group 1 topics:
1-A) Microbiology is essential for a career in nursing and allied health. In the lecture, we learned about the importance of identifying microbes and subsequent steps in managing infections. Describe Kock’s postulate, pure cultures, and media we learned in class to help identify microbes.
1-B) Microorganisms are ubiquitous and diverse. They have different characteristics that place them in different taxonomic groups. An understanding of these groups supports infection management and informs the patient care plan. Describe the similarities (nucleic acid, cell membrane/lipid structure, protein/amino acids) and differences (cellular structures) among the different microorganisms (eg. prokaryotes vs. eukaryotes) we covered in class.
1-C) Enumerating microbe is an important method to determine treatment outcomes. Describe methods (dilutions, plating for CFU, and instruments) used to enumerate microbes.
Group 3 topics:
3-A) Understanding the host immune responses in essential in the treatment and care of patients. Pick a pathogen (virus or bacteria) and describe:
- What are the PAMPs that are associated with the pathogen.
- Describe what happens to an innate immune cell that encounters the pathogen.
- Describe what happens to an adaptive immune cell in response to the pathogen.
3-B) Describe the function of antibodies and the result of the pathogen for all of the following:
- Complement activation.
- •Write in cohesive sentences.
- Do not plagiarize! Use references to indicate your source.
- In your own words, show that you understand the topic.
Requirements: 2-3 paragraph
