Lamar University’s BIOL 2420Microbiology Laboratory In a culture media, the addition of which of the following will neutralize acidity? Salts and sugars help to preserve foods by forming a gel-like substance. The word facultative anaerobes refers to an organism that either utilizes oxygen or develops in the absence of oxygen, which is a disadvantage of the conventional plate count. Cells may group together to create aggregates. It is necessary to allow for incubation time. The medium and incubation conditions dictate the chemical and physical needs.

It counts the number of dead cells.

It is necessary to have a large number of cells Metabolic activity is measured using this method.

CO2 produced by the Krebs cycleNO2- produced by the electron transport chain CO2 produced by the Krebs cycleNO2- produced by the electron transport chain Reduced concentrations of dissolved oxygen A normal plate count revealed that 36 colonies developed in nutrient agar from 1ml of undiluted material in a nutrient agar plate.

  • The pH of a culture medium on which only gram-positive organisms grow and a yellow halo surrounds Staphylococcus aureus colonies is optimal for the growth of the majority of bacteria.
  • At 0 degrees Celsius, growth occurs.
  • Temperatures of 15 degrees Celsius promote growth.
  • The time it takes for a cell to divide is measured in minutes.

Counting through direct microscopic observation Plates are counted in accordance with industry standards FiltrationMPNMost likely to ruin freshwater fish that has been kept in salt A metabolic activity that may be used to quantify microbial development is, for example, which of the following: An experiment began with four cells and finished with one hundred and eighty-two cells.

  • Inoculating three cells into a culture medium with a generation time of 30 minutes results in the formation of three colonies.
  • What organism is responsible for the production of catalase and superoxide dismutase?
  • A media used to select for a nitrogen-fixing chemoheterotroph should not contain any of the elements listed below.
  • Afterwards, you infected 200 mL of nutrient broth with 100 cells from the same species.

After 24 hours of incubation, you should be able to harvest The number of cells in both is the same. The source of nutrients in nutrition agar is the same. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is used as a carbon source and as an energy source by producers at hydrothermal vents on the ocean’s surface.

Nutrient broths (also known as liquid nutrient medium) and lysogeny broth medium are the most often used growth media for microorganisms. Liquid media are frequently combined with agarose and dispensed onto Petri plates using a sterile media dispenser to solidify. These agar plates serve as a solid culture medium for microorganisms to grow and multiply. They remain solid because only a few number of bacteria are capable of decomposing agar (the exception being some species in the genera:Cytophaga,Flavobacterium,Bacillus,Pseudomonas, andAlcaligenes).

It is important to understand the difference between growth media used for cell culture and growth media used for microbiological culture because cells derived from whole organisms and grown in culture frequently cannot grow without the addition of growth factors or hormones that normally occur in vivo.

  • Microorganisms, on the other hand, are frequently unicellular organisms, therefore there are no such restrictions on their growth.
  • This is another significant distinction from animal cells raised in the wild.
  • The difference between defined and undefined growth media is a significant distinction between the two forms of growth media.
  • It consists of giving trace elements and vitamins that are necessary by the bacterium, as well as specifically defined carbon and nitrogen sources.
  • Some complex compounds, such as yeast extractor casein hydrolysate, are found in an undefined medium.
  • In some cases, undefined media are chosen based on price, while in others, they are used out of necessity – for example, some bacteria have never been cultivated on defined media.
  • The wort has all of the nutrients necessary for yeast development, and when fermented in an anaerobic environment, it produces alcohol.
  • The most common kinds are as follows:
  • Media that is cultural
  • Minimum media
  • Selective media
  • Differential media
  • Transit media
  • Indicator media

Culture media

Culture media include all of the nutrients and growth factors that most bacteria require to thrive, and because they are non-selective, they are employed for the general growing and maintenance of bacteria in laboratory cultures collections.

An indefinite media (also known as a base medium or a complicated medium) has the following components:

  • The following ingredients are required: a carbon source such as glucose, water, different salts, a supply of amino acids and nitrogen (for example, beef, yeast extract)

A medium with no specified composition is created by combining amino acids from various sources, the exact composition of which is not known at the time of writing. When you work in a specified medium, you are working in an environment that has been chemically defined or synthesized.

  • Each and every one of the compounds employed is well-known
  • There is no evidence of yeast, animal, or plant tissue.

The following are examples of nutritional media:

  • Nutrient agar, plate count agar, trypticase soy agar, and other agars are used.

The term “minimal media” refers to a specified medium that contains just the components necessary to enable development. When growing microorganisms in a minimum medium, the quantity of components that must be added varies greatly depending on the microbe being cultivated. Minimal media are those that contain the very minimum of nutrients necessary for colony formation, and are often devoid of amino acids. They are frequently employed by microbiologists and geneticists to cultivate “wild-type” microorganisms in their laboratories.

The following are typical components of minimal medium:

  • A carbon source, which can be either a sugar such as glucose or a less energy-dense source such as succinate
  • Various salts, which can vary depending on the bacteria species and growing conditions
  • These generally provide essential elements such as magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur to allow the bacteria to synthesize protein and nucleic acids
  • Water
  • And a nitrogen source.

The term “supplemental minimum media” refers to minimal media that also include a single specified chemical, which is often an amino acid or a sugar. This supplementation enables the cultivation of specific lines of auxotrophic recombinants in the laboratory.

Selective media

Campylobacter isolates were obtained using a blood-free, charcoal-based selective medium agar (CSM). Blood agar plates are frequently used in the diagnosis of infectious diseases. A positiveStaphylococcusculture is shown on the right, while a positiveStreptococcusculture is shown on the left. Selective media are used to promote the development of just specific microorganisms in a laboratory setting. Suppose a microbe develops resistance to a certain antibiotic, such as ampicillin or tetracycline.

  1. The use of media missing an amino acid, such as proline, in combination with E.
  2. Selection media are also utilized in the cell culture process in order to guarantee the survival or multiplication of cells that possess certain characteristics, such as antibiotic resistance or the ability to produce a specific metabolite.
  3. In such instances, the gene is referred to as a marker.
  4. Gancycloviris an exception to the norm, since it is used to precisely destroy cells that have the Herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase, which is a marker for the virus in question.

Four distinct types of agar plates were used to demonstrate how bacterial metabolism might influence growth. Examples of selective media include the following:

  • Eosin methylene blue is a dye that is harmful to Gram-positive bacteria because it includes dyes that are toxic to them. This medium is used to selectively and differentially isolate coliforms. The pH of YM (yeast extract, malt extractagar) is low, which inhibits bacterial growth. Gram-negative bacteria are cultured in MacConkey agaris. Hektoen enteric agar is a bacterial agar that is selective for Gram-negative bacteria. Known as HIS-selective media, this is a form of cell culture medium that does not include the amino acid histidine. In addition to being selective for gram-positive bacteria, mannitol salt agar is also differential for mannitol. Xylose lysine deoxycholate is a Gram-negative bacteria-selective antibiotic. Buffered charcoal yeast extract agar is a gram-negative bacteria selectivity agar that is particularly effective against Legionella pneumophila In the case of gram-positive staphylococci, Baird–Parker agaris is used. In part, this is owing to the low pH (5.6) and high glucose content (3–4 percent) of Sabouraud’s agar, which makes it particularly attractive to some fungus. In food testing, DRBC (dichloran rose bengal chloramphenicol agar) is a selective medium that may be used to count the number of moulds and yeasts present. Inhibitors of mould colony growth such as dichloran and rose bengal help to prevent an increase in the number of luxuriant species while also aiding in the precise counting of colonies.

Differential media

Media that identify one species of microbe from another that is growing on the same medium are referred to as differential or indicator media. To visually identify the defining characteristics of a microorganism, this type of media employs the biochemical characteristics of a microorganism growing in the presence of specific nutrients or indicators (such as neutral red, phenol red, eosin y, ormethylene blue) that have been added to the medium. These media are used by microbiologists to detect microorganisms, and by molecular biologists to identify recombinant strains of bacteria in a variety of settings.

  • It is utilized in strep tests because it includes bovine heart blood that turns translucent in the presence of -hemolytic organisms such as Streptococcus pyogenes andStaphylococcus aureus. Lactose fermentation is aided by the use of eosin methylene blue
  • Nevertheless, This medium is selective and differential for Streptococcus agalactiae (group B streptococcus), which develops as characteristic red colonies on the surface of the culture media. Lactose fermentation is facilitated by MacConkey agaris differential
  • Agar containing mannitol salt has a difference effect on mannitol fermentation, and X-galplates have a differential effect on lac operonmutants.

Transport media

The following requirements should be met by transportation media:

  • The temporary storage of specimens while they are being transferred to the laboratory for culture
  • Maintain the viability of all organisms present in the specimen without affecting their concentration
  • And. Only buffers and salt are used in this formulation. Lack of carbon, nitrogen, and organic growth factors, which prevents microbial reproduction
  • Lack of organic growth nutrients. In order to isolate anaerobes, the transport media utilized in the isolation process must be devoid of molecular oxygen.

Examples of transportation media include:

  • In the case of strictanaerobes, thioglycolate broth is used. Stuart transfer medium is a non-nutritional soft agar gel that contains a reducing chemical to avoid oxidation as well as charcoal to neutralize the environment. Gonococci are treated with specific bacterial inhibitors, while enteric bacilli are treated with buffered glycerol saline. For V. cholerae, the Venkataraman Ramakrishna (VR) medium is employed.

Enriched media

Increased nutrient availability provides the nutrients necessary to sustain the growth of a wide range of species, including some of the more finicky organisms. They are typically used to collect as many distinct types of bacteria from a specimen as there are germs present in it. Blood agar is an enhanced media in which nutritionally dense whole blood replenishes the basic nutrients in the presence of other nutrients. It is made up of dark chocolate agaris that have been heat-treated to 40–45 degrees Celsius (104–113 degrees Fahrenheit), which turns brown and provides the medium its name-giving hue.

Physiological relevance

In tissue culture investigations, the choice of culture media can have an impact on the physiological significance of the findings, which is especially true for metabolic research. Furthermore, it was shown that the kind of media used can influence the dependency of a cell line on a metabolic gene. When doing a study with several cell lines, using a homogeneous culture medium for all of the cell lines may help to limit the amount of bias in the datasets that are created. Increased physiological relevance of in vitro research can be achieved by using a growth medium that more accurately replicates physiological amounts of nutrients.

Phasing changes in a cell culture environment may have a significant impact on practically every biological activity, including metabolism, cell proliferation, and membrane potential, among others. Extracellular pH is slightly alkaline, ranging between 7.3 and 7.4, whereas intracellular pH is somewhat lower, ranging between 7.2 and 7.2, respectively. Many organelles, such as mitochondria, maintain a pH that is somewhat different from the cytoplasmic pH, but if the variations between the two pHs become too significant, the organelles’ ability to operate is severely compromised.

pH BuffersHow pH Buffered Culture Media Works

In its most basic definition, a buffer is a solution that contains a weak acid or weak base and its conjugate base or acid. They function by neutralizing any extra acid (H +ions) or base (OH –ions) in order to maintain the optimum pH level in the solution.

A pH buffer functions as either a weak acid or a weak base, depending on the situation, to guarantee that the media is relatively resistant to pH changes. As a result of the buffer’s ability to donate or take hydrogen ions, which are responsible for setting pH, this method works.

Acid + Base⇌Conjugate Base + Conjugate Acid

The sodium bicarbonate buffer is the most often used buffer in mammalian cell culture. The sodium bicarbonate buffered medium becomes sensitive to the formation of carbonic acid as a result of the presence of CO 2. The pH of the medium may be maintained as long as the level of CO 2 in the solution is kept under control. By and large, only certain types of biological activities may take place when the pH is within a specific range, and the appropriate buffer must have a pKa that is near to the ideal pH of the target cells.

Does Temperature Play a Role in pH?

Temperature can have an impact on pH in a significant yet nonlinear way. Temperature increases are associated with a reduction in pH levels. The easiest way to explain this is to use the example of water. When water is heated, the pH of the water decreases. In fact, the pH is closer to 6.14 than it is to 7.00 when heated to 100°C. Technically, the new neutral pH at 100°C is more acidic than the old neutral pH, but the constituents remain same. Water is always simply hydrogen and oxygen, regardless of the temperature at which it exists.

As a result of this consideration, a buffer that delivers ideal capacity and range at a single temperature may not be the best choice for tests conducted at many temperatures.

pH Buffer Capacity and Range

There is a specified effective capacity and range for each buffer. The buffering capacity of a solution is the quantity of acid or base that can be added before the pH begins to vary significantly. Alternative definitions include the amount of acid or base that must be added to one liter of solution in order to raise or lower the pH by one pH unit. Thus, the pH buffering capacity (pKa) is equal to the negative logarithm of the acid dissociation constant (Ka). At this moment, equilibration has been achieved and equal amounts of acid and conjugate base are present in solution.

The pH range of a buffer is the range of pH values within which a buffer may efficiently neutralize additional acids and bases while keeping a reasonably constant pH.


Acid buffers have a pH less than 7.0 and are composed of a weak acid and one of the acid’s conjugates as the active ingredient. The pH of the acidic buffers that are most usually employed is around 4.75. Change the pH of the buffer solution by altering the ratio of acid to salt in the solution.


Alkaline buffer solutions have a pH greater than 7.0 and are used to buffer acidic solutions. They are made up of a weak base and one of its conjugates, and they are quite strong.

When ammonia and ammonium chloride are combined in equal molar amounts, the pH of the solution is 9.25, making it the most often used alkaline buffer. Change the pH of this solution by altering the ratio of base to salt in the solution.


Neutral buffers are exactly what they sound like: they are neutral buffers. They have a pH near to or at 7.0 and are utilized for a number of purposes, the most common of which is to keep cells within the physiological range of mammalian cells. zwitterionic solutions contain an equal amount of positively and negatively charged ions, as seen in the diagram. HEPES is the most often used buffer in cell culture because it is more effective at preserving physiological pH than bicarbonate buffers and may be generated at pH values ranging from 6.8 to 8.2.

What is Breaking the Buffer?

When the whole base and its conjugate acid (or vice versa) are consumed in the process of neutralization, the buffer is regarded to be broken (adding acid or base.) The addition of any more acid or base at this stage will cause the pH to change fast, and in many cases drastically. Even when the barrier has been breached, all hope is not lost. It simply indicates that the capacity has been reached and that pH regulation is now a much more hands-on process. Every cell culture expert believes that keeping a steady pH is critical for cell development, regardless of which buffer you use or how the pH is measured.

Which is the best acid or base neutralization?

They can be as simple as a bag of citric acid or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) or as sophisticated as a solidifier and a neutralizer that are used in conjunction. Safeguarding one’s health and safety (mixing chemicals is always a potentially dangerous operation), as well as cost and convenience, are all important factors when selecting the optimal technique of neutralization.

What is the pH of a neutral acid?

Strong acids are defined as chemicals having a pH ranging from 0 to 3. Strong bases are defined as chemicals having a pH ranging from 12 to 14. A chemical must have a pH value of 7 in order to be called neutral. Acids are often characterized by a sour taste and a pH of less than seven.

Which is the best way to determine the acidity of a substance?

When determining whether a material is acidic or basic, the pH of the material is the best method to use.

This can be performed by the use of pH paper, chemical indicators, or pH meters, among other methods. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 on a scale of 1 to 14. Strong acids are defined as chemicals having a pH ranging from 0 to 3.

How can you tell when an acid spill has been neutralized?

There are certain acid and base neutralizers that come with a built-in color indicator that will tell you when the spill has been neutralized. Others need you to verify the pH with pH paper or a pH meter to ensure that the neutralization procedure is proceeding as planned.

What Is Another Name For Amino Acids?

The twenty amino acids (as well as many more amino acids that are regularly discovered) have innocuous names such as Glycine (R = H), Alanine (R= methyl group), Valine (R= isopropyl group), and so on.

How Do You Combine Amino Acids?

Peptide bonds, which are formed when the amino or NH2 group of one amino acid links to the carboxyl (acid) or COOH group of another amino acid, are used to connect amino acids together to produce polypeptides and proteins.

Are Fatty Acids Amino Acids?

Is it true that fatty acids are amino acids? The most significant distinction between amino acids and fatty acids is that amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, whereas the three fatty acids are joined together to create a triglyceride, which is the primary ingredient of lipids. Amino acids and fatty acids are two types of macromolecule building components that can be found in the body.

Why Does Ninhydrin Stain Amino Acids?

The test is done as a result of the interaction between the amino group of free amino acid and ninhydrin, which occurs during the preparation of the sample. Ninhydrin, as you are aware, is a powerful oxidizing agent. As a result of its presence, the amino acid undergoes oxidative deamination, which results in the release of ammonia, and the production of ninhydrin is reduced.

What Is The Breakdown Of Fats Into Fatty Acids?

Currently, long chain fatty acids are broken down by a process known as oxidation (breakdown). This process occurs through the actions of the enzymes -oxidation and -oxidation. Acyl-CoA is the active 2-C unit that is produced as a result of the -oxidation process (CH3CO C0A).

Are Dna And Rna Nucleic Acids?

Nucleic acids include DNA and RNA, which are both instances. They are made up of a string of nucleotides that contain a phosphate group, a 5′ sugar, and a nitrogenous base, among other things. DNA and RNA molecules are polymers, as are other nucleic acids. DNA is double stranded, but RNA is single stranded, and this is the difference between the two.

Does Zinc React With All Acids?

Molecular nucleic acids include DNA and RNA, to name a few examples. Nucleotides with an added phosphate group, a 5′ sugar, and a nitrogenous base make up the strand of nucleotides in this kind of DNA. Molecular polymers such as DNA and RNA exist. While both DNA and RNA are double-stranded, DNA is the more common of the two.

What Protein Powder Has All 9 Amino Acids?

Hemp is a complete protein that is mostly made of the amino acids edestin and albumin. Edestin and albumin are proteins that aid in the absorption of all nine necessary amino acids by the body. Hemp is regarded as a complete protein since it includes all of the necessary amino acids required for human nutrition. Protein is made up of a chain of amino acids, and not all foods contain all of the amino acids in the chain.

How Are Peptide Bonds Formed Between Amino Acids?

In biochemistry, a peptide is a short polymer of amino acid monomers that are connected together by an amide bond.

Peptide bonds are chemical bonds created by connecting the carboxyl groups (the backbone) of two amino acids together (the backbone). During the creation of this connection, the water molecule (H 2 O) is released into the environment.

How Can Glucose Be Converted To Fatty Acids?

Over time, extra glucose can be stored in the liver as glycogen or transformed into fatty acids with the aid of insulin, which can then be transported to other regions of the body and stored as fat in adipose tissue. The accumulation of fat in the liver occurs when there is an excess of fatty acids present. What is the location of the amino acid conversion to glucose?

What Will Break An Ionic Bond Between Amino Acids?

Due to the fact that hydrolysis can break peptide bonds between amino acids and that high temperatures can break hydrogen bonds between amino acids, in the case of an enzyme, it’s tertiary structure can be disrupted, which changes the active site, making it impossible for enzyme substrate complexes to form. The pH of the solution will have an influence on the ionic bonding. What chemical process is responsible for the dissociation of amino acids?

How Many Nucleotides Are In 100 Amino Acids?

100 amino acids are required to code one gram of protein. A total of 100 codons are required, as well as one starting codon and one stopping codon.
