Diseases that constantly present in a local population
Infectious diseases that attack many people at the same time in the same geographic area.
Surface protein used for invasion
Type of disease where the pathogen attaches to alveolar macrophages, prevents phagosome-lysosome fusion, and cause lysis of phagocytes.
Binds to external region of T cell receptor and the MHC II on macrophage resulting in nonspecific interaction and massive release of cytokines.
Cell wall components freed when cells die and break up.
Type of symbiosis where it is beneficial to one partner while the other is unaffected
Soluble proteins released by living bacterial cells.
Blocks release of acetylcholine from peripheral nerves. Prevents contraction.
Bacteria that forms pores on host cells.
Thick gray exudate formed from inflammatory reaction caused by diphteria.
Bacteria that causes hyperactivation and increase in adenylate cyclase. This results in increased cAMP and patient loses water and have diarrhea.
Gram negative bacteria that triggers surface ruffles.
Bacteria that causes inhibition of protein synthesis by inactivation of elongation factor-2.
Direct injection of toxins through the flagella or pilus into host cells.
Bacteria that causes enzymatic lysis of host cells resulting in Gas Gangrene.
Worldwide occurrence of disease.
Blocks release of inhibitory neurotransmitters. Causes constant contraction.
