How does staphylococcus move?

There are different types of staph infections the cause many illnesses. A mild case of the bacterial infection is passed along by personal contact causing skin infections. a more serious, but rare case, is when the bacteria enters the body through a break in the skin. It moves to the bloodstream infecting organs, joints or the nervous system.

Answer 2

Staphylococcus don't move as they lack flagella , they drift .

Does amoeba have chlorophyll?

No it does not have chlorophyll and so it can not carry out photosynthesis instead it feeds on micro-organisms.

How does an amoeba mate?

An amoeba dosen't technically mate.There is a type of asexual reproduction called binary fission where it duplicates its genetic material then splits to form to identical parts. It's a form of cloning.

What enzyme protein is used to copy DNA?

The enzyme DNA polymerase is what facilitates the replication of DNA, however there are multiple enzymes that aid the process of DNA replication such as helicase, ligase, and exonuclease.

Does blepharisma move with cilia?

Blepharisma is covered in tiny hairlike parts called cilia, which allows it to move through water - more slowly than vinegar eels, but faster than Volvox. Because of its cilia on all sides, Blepharisma can turn in any direction and often spins around. It spirals as well as spins in a circular motion. It can change direction very easily, which makes it somewhat difficult to keep in view on a microscope. They use their cillia as well as to sweep food into their buccal cavity (mouth).

Do mothballs also repel animals?

Mothballs ineffective Animal's arent "repeled" from mothballs, but they may avoid (step over) them, if they were just placed there. Naphthalene and Paradichlorobenzene sublimate quickly, so for extended periods of time in the outdoors the chemical's would be so dilute. I even doubt they would be so much as unpleasent to animal's unless you fertilze your lawn with them. My answer is pretty much no. PLUS, if you place them near your house (say, under your deck or in an attached shed), chances are excellent YOU will be repelled by the odor, and will be constantly compelled to think about long days spent in your elderly aunt's attic (which, unless she stashed the cash she bequeathed to you up there, is/was not a pleasant experience). Now, we need an answer on "how long do mothballs take to decay?"

Answer 2:

Mothballs DO repel some animals. When used as intended they repel or kill insects such as moths and silverfish. There is some evidence they repel snakes and keep away mice or other pests.

How does amoeba excretion work?

Amoeba possess a contractile vacuole for excretion and osmoregulation . Undigested food is excreted by exocytosis . Some wastes wastes, and CO2 are excreted through the plasma membrane by diffusion .

What is the difference in paramecium euglena and amoeba?

Euglena, Paramecium and Amoeba are all monocellular organisms. The major difference lies in their mode locomotion. The amoeba moves with the help of its pseudopodia, that are temporary protrusions of cytoplasm, giving leg like appearance. In paramecium, there are small outgrowths that are called as Cilia (Sing. Cilium). These cilia are thousands in number and are present all over the cells' surface. They act like an oar. Finally, Euglena have Flagellum (plur. flagella). A flagella beats like a whip to provide driving force for the movement.

Apart from this, both Euglena and Paramecium have a fixed body shape but amoeba continuously keeps on changing its shape . Amoeba and Paramecium are heterotrophic and lack chloroplast while Eugena has chloroplasts and could synthesise its own food. Amoeba and Euglena are monokaryotic ( One nucleus only) while paramecium has two nuclei and is dikaryotic.

What are characteristics of the kingdom protista?

  • They are eukaryotic, meaning they are not bacterias and contain a true nucleus.
  • They can be multicellular or unicellular.
  • Some are heterotrophic, others are autotrophic.
  • Some reproduces sexually and some reproduces asexually. Still others utilize both methods, asexual reproduction inside a host organism and sexual reproduction outside.
  • Many are parasitic and lives in ponds
  • The plant-like protists are thought to be the ancestors of modern plants.
  • The animal-like protists are thought to have been the ancestors of all animals.

Not animal, not plant, not fungus or prokaryote

Are all protists aquatic?

Yes and no. If you take some soil, place it in a Petri dish, and flood it with water, you will see in about 20 minutes a vast number of protists. Some would argue this would indicate that there are terrestrial protists. (Others would counter that these protists live in the thin film of water that exists around soil particles; therefore, they are still aquatic.

It also depends on what organisms you call protists. If you consider slime molds and oomycetes protists, then there are many terrestrial protists. Slime molds creep along in the leaf litter, and there are several plant pathogens among the oomycetes that attack the above ground portions of plants.
