Bacterial pathogens
enterobacteria, E. coli, heliobacter pylori
1 of 18
Intracellular pathogens
mycobacterium tuberculosis
2 of 18
Arthropod transmitted pathogens
borrelia burgdorfii
3 of 18
Viruses
most composed of nucleic acid and a few proteins, acellular and do not metabolize energy, do not produce ATP, conduct fermentation, respiration or photosynthesis, can reproduce only in systems that do perform these functions, unaffected by antibiotic
4 of 18
Viroids
simplest infective agents made up of only genetic material
5 of 18
Virions
individual viral particles outside the cell, either DNA or RNA, generally surrounded by capsid/protein coat
6 of 18
Arboviruses
infect insects and vertebrates, passes from arthropod to vertebrate via insect bite
7 of 18
Vector
carrier of virus
8 of 18
Prions
protein only infectious agent, scrapie, BSE, Creuz-feld Jakob Disease
9 of 18
Protozoa/protists
eukaryotic pathogens
10 of 18
Giardia lamlia
parasitic diplomonad, contaminates water supplies and causes giardiasis
11 of 18
Trichomonas vaginalis
parabasilid responsible for STD
12 of 18
Kinetoplastids
unicellular, parasitic flagellates, one large mitochondrion which contains a kinetoplast housing multiple circular DNA molecules and proteins
13 of 18
Trypanosomes
human pathogens, cause sleeping sickness and Chagas' disease
14 of 18
Apicomplexans
exclusively parasitic, cause of malaria (plasmodium) enters human circulatory system by Anopheles mosquito
15 of 18
Apical complex
mass of organelles contained within apical end of their spores, help apicomplexan spore invade host tissue
16 of 18
Extracellular parasite
when in insect vector
17 of 18
Intracellular parasite
when in human host
