Microbial Growth and Nutrition Continued
ABC Transporters
ATP-Binding Cassette transports
Observed in bacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes
This type of transport is a group effort
ATP converts into ADP and then the nutrients (solute-binding protein)
enter the cell
Types of Microbiological Media
Referred to as “broth”
Components (example: nutrients) are dissolved in water and then
Semisolid Media
A medium to which has been added a gelling agent
Agar is most commonly used
Chemically Defined Media
Chemically defined media is when the exact chemical composition is
Example: when you use minimal media for bacterial genetics
Minimal media because we know the exact amounts of amino acids to
make growth but we only give the minimum amount needed to obtain
selective growth
Act like you’re putting it on a diet
Complex Media
The exact chemical composition is UNKNOWN
Often contain plant or animal extracts
Example: soybean meal, milk protein, etc.
Include most routine laboratory media
Example: tryptic soy broth
LOTS of nutrients so there is a wide variety of growth
Universal media because there is not selective growth like you have in
minimal media
Some Media Components
