Beneficial Prokaryote – Pseudomonas putida

Pseudomonas putida is a gram negative and non-pathogenic bacterium with rod shape. It is usually grow in soil and water which high in oxygen content at 25-30°C. It has mutlitrichious flagella for mobility and it is sensitive to environment changes. Pseudomonas putida has several important strains which are F1 and KT2440 and a few significant plasmids such as the TOL and OCT plasmid. Besides that, it has a circular genome where around eighty genes in oxidative reductase can be found. All these three components found in Pseudomonas putida are important in bioremediation such as degrade toluene and in the application to biotechnology. Pseudomonas putida plays an important role in degradation of pollutants in environment. It has the ability to produce Poly-3-hydroxyalkanoates (PHA) from aromatic hydrocarbon styrene, which is a major environment toxic pollutant produced from industries and is known causes spinal tract irritation, muscle weakness and narcosis in human and mammals. The PHA produced by Pseudomonas putida important in medical applications such as tissue engineering and also as antibiotics and vitamins. Furthermore, PHA can be used in making disposable items such as spoon, fork and other plastic utensils. In addition, it converts styrene oil into biodegradable plastic which is environmental friendly for us. Moreover, Pseudomonas putida is able tolerate to environment stresses due to its diverse control in protein such as protein modification and repair and protein folding and stabilization. This also enables it to function in biofilm production. Besides, Pseudomonas putida acts as an agent for plant growth and plant pest control. The complex interaction between Pseudomonas putida and Saccaromyces cerevisiae together regulate plant health. It is a mutualism between the prokaryotes and the plant. This is because prokaryotes produce sideospores such as pyoverdine and pyochelin to protect the plant from fungal

    What exactly is a prokaryote? Why are they so important in the scientific universe? To the amazement of many, prokaryotes are some of the most important organisms on Earth, and may have been the first to ever thrive on planet Earth. From what modern scientists know, prokaryotes were the first organisms on Earth, surviving millions of years on the treacherous terrain that was early Earth before humans ever came into existence. Prokaryotes are known for their incredible abilities to survive in the…

(Eukaryotes are either single-celled or multi-celled organisms such as animals, plants, fungi, and insects. Bacteria are an example of prokaryotes. Prokaryotic cells do not contain a nucleus.) Herbert proposed a four-kingdom…

    the division of labour. There are two main classes of cells- Prokaryotes which are cells without a nucleus, where the DNA is spread around the cytoplasm of the cell, an example of a prokaryote is a bacterium (See Figure 1). The other class is the Eukaryotes which are the cells of plants and animals, and example is a palisade cell (See Figure 2). Both have similarities and differences in their functions and structures. Both Prokaryote and Eukaryote cells consist of Cell wall, (however this is not…

    Introduction to Prokaryotes in Different Temperature Environments Angelina Orozco Biology 1108 Wednesday 7:30 am Abstract Prokaryotes are single-celled organisms that can survive in extreme environments. Bacteria is the more numerous type of prokaryotes. The group hypothesizes that the samples taken from different environments will all cultivate diverse morphology in fast growing rates in each environment. The aseptic technique was used to cultivate bacteria from different environments. The…

    Prokaryote Organelles: Nucleoid Region: The region in a prokaryotic cell consisting of a concentrated mass of DNA. (The “nucleus” of a prokaryotic cell) The nucleoid instructs all the organelles on what to do. Ribosome: A cell organelle consisting of RNA and protein organized into two subunits and functioning as the site of protein synthesis in the cytoplasm. The ribosomal subunits are constructed in the nucleolus. (Make proteins from amino acids) The nucleoid controls the ribsomes and specifies…
