Bacteria electrifying modern life

Batteries made with microbes could help generate power by cleaning up organic waste at the same time.

Sewage is loaded with energy-rich sugars that researchers have struggled for years to convert into useful power. To do so, investigators have experimented with nature's experts on breaking down waste — bacteria.

Scientists have experimented with a variety of bacteria, but there is one kind looks very promising and which is naturally found in many soils and sediments. Geobacter grows by breaking down organic materials and transferring electrons pretty much onto anything that looks like iron. When attacking environmental pollutants such as aromatic hydrocarbons, Geobacter can break down some 90 percent. All in all, systems incorporating Geobacter can recover up to nearly all the electrons within sewage.

Still, all the energy that bacteria could generate from wastewater could help power the considerable needs of wastewater treatment. For instances, in the United States, roughly 33 billion gallons of wastewater are treated daily for an annual cost of more than $25 billion, and some 1.5 percent of the electricity produced every year goes into wastewater treatment alone.

Aside from wastewater, another potentially vast source of energy that bacteria could exploit are the organic chemicals in ocean mud. Although humanity already taps into some of this fuel in the form of petroleum, most of this energy reservoir remains beyond reach because it is not nearly as easy to extract and use as oil.

Organic matter keeps on raining down onto marine sediments as organisms die, so the idea is that marine sediments could basically be a perpetual system for powering electronic devices.

In terms of advancing these microbial systems further, scientists have experimented with bacteria in terms of genetic engineering. So far they have managed to double power output.

How Bacteria Become Drug Resistant

Once in every several hundred million cell divisions a mutation makes a bacterium immune to an antibiotic drug. The mutation alters the bacterium's genetic code and thus its ability to use certain chemicals for its life activities. Mutations can be caused by the radiations from outer space that stream into the Earth's atmosphere, as well as by some atmospheric chemicals. As a result of the mutation, all bacteria that stem from the immune germ will be resistant to the drug unless any of them undergoes a mutation that makes the strain susceptible again. Hence, whenever a new antibiotic is developed, there will be a chance that bacteria will develop an immunity against it. But because mutations are fairly rare, doctors have a good chance of fighting a bacterial disease with the new drug before future strains become resistant.

Some members of a bacterial strain are resistant to certain drugs naturally. In the course of time they can eventually become selected through evolutionary forces to become the dominant drug-resistant forms of a pathogenic strain.

More importantly, some bacteria can pass on their drug resistance to bacteria of another strain by “infection.” Since the passing of resistance factors does not depend upon the lengthy process of mutation, it poses a much greater problem of drug immunity. As a consequence, doctors often must prescribe more than one antibiotic to fight certain diseases in the hope that this will slow bacterial resistance.

Бакте́рии— группа (царство) прокариотных (безъядерных) микроорганизмов, чаще всего одноклеточных. К настоящему времени описано около десяти тысяч видов бактерий и предполагается, что их существует свыше миллиона.

Впервые бактерий увидел в оптический микроскоп и описал голландский натуралист Антони ван Левенгук в 1676 году. Как и всех микроскопических существ он назвал их «анималькули». Название «бактерии» ввёл в употребление Христиан Эренберг в 1828.

Луи Пастер в 1850-е положил начало изучению физиологии и метаболизма бактерий, а также открыл их болезнетворные свойства. Дальнейшее развитие медицинская микробиология получила в трудах Роберта Коха, которым были сформулированы общие принципы определения возбудителя болезни.

Подавляющее большинство бактерий одноклеточны. По форме клеток они могут быть шаровидными (кокки), палочковидными (бациллы), извитыми (вибрионы), реже — звездчатыми, тетраэдрическими, кубическими, C- или O-образными. Формой определяются такие способности бактерий, как прикрепление к поверхности, подвижность, поглощение питательных веществ.

Из обязательных клеточных структур выделяют три:



цитоплазматическая мембрана (ЦПМ).

С внешней стороны от ЦПМ находятся несколько слоёв (клеточная стенка, капсула, слизистый чехол), называемых клеточной оболочкой, а также поверхностные структуры (жгутики, ворсинки(villi)). ЦПМ и цитоплазму объединяют вместе в понятие протопласт.

Вся необходимая для жизнедеятельности бактерий генетическая информация содержится в одной ДНК (бактериальная хромосома), Она в одной точке прикреплена к ЦПМ и помещается в структуре, обособленной, но не отделённой мембраной от цитоплазмы, и называемой нуклеоид. ДНК в развёрнутом состоянии имеет длину более 1 мм.

Размеры бактерий в среднем составляют 0,5-5 мкм. В то же время к бактериям относятся самые мелкие из имеющих клеточное строение организмов. Mycoplasma mycoides имеет размеры 0,1-0,25 мкм, что соответствует размеру крупных вирусов, например, табачной мозаики или гриппа.

Многие бактерии подвижны. Имеется несколько принципиально различных типов движения бактерий. Наиболее распространено движение при помощи жгутиков: одиночных бактерий . Другим типом движения является скольжение бактерий, не имеющих жгутиков, по поверхности твёрдых сред. Наконец, бактерии могут всплывать и погружаться в жидкости, меняя свою плотность, наполняя газами или опустошая аэросомы.

Часть из них может синтезировать все необходимые им органические молекулы из неорганических соединений (автотрофы), другие же требуют готовых органических соединений, которые они способны лишь трансформировать (гетеротрофы).

Температура тела амфибий зависит от температуры и влажности окружающей среды; они отличаются ограниченными возможностями распространения, передвижения и ориентации на суше. Примитивность амфибий как наземных животных особенно ярко выражена в том, что их яйца лишены оболочек, защищающих их от высыхания, и, как правило, не могут развиваться вне воды. В связи с этим у земноводных развивается личинка, обитающая в воде. Развитие протекает с превращением (метаморфоз), в результате которого водная личинка превращается в животное, обитающее на суше. Земноводные — самый малочисленный класс позвоночных, включающий лишь около 2100 современных видов, представленных тремя отрядами: хвостатых, безногих и бесхвостых.

Class Amphibia


An amphibian - any member of the class Amphibia, vertebrates distinguished by their ability to exploit both aquatic and terrestrial habitats. The name, derived from the Greek amphibios meaning “living a double life,” reflects this dual life strategy. Despite this distinction, however, some species are permanent land dwellers, while other species have a completely aquatic mode of existence.


Members of the three living orders of amphibians, Anura ( frogs and toads), Caudata (salamanders and newts), and Apoda ( caecilians), differ in their structural appearance. Frogs and toads are tailless, somewhat squat amphibians with long, powerful hind limbs modified for leaping. Salamanders and newts have tails and two pairs of limbs of roughly the same size and have less-specialized structures than the other two orders. Caecilians are limbless, wormlike, and highly adapted for a burrowing existence.


Most amphibians have a biphasic life cycle involving aquatic eggs and larvae that metamorphose into terrestrial adults. They deposit large numbers of eggs in water; clutches may exceed 5,000 eggs in the tiger salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum) and 45,000 eggs in large bullfrogs (Rana catesbeiana). Egg size and water temperature influence the length of time required by embryos to develop in the egg before hatching;


Adult amphibians consume a wide variety of foods. Earthworms are the main diet of burrowing caecilians, anurans feed primarily on insects and other arthropods, and large salamanders and some large anurans eat small vertebrates, including birds and mammals. Most anurans and salamanders locate prey by sight, although some use their sense of smell.


Toad any squat, rough-skinned, tailless amphibian of the order Anura, and especially a member of the family Bufonidae. The true toads (Bufo), with more than 300 species, are found worldwide except in Australasia, Madagascar, polar regions, and Polynesia.

True toads, of which the American toad and the European toad are representative, are stout-bodied with short legs that limit them to the characteristic walking or hopping gait. Their size ranges from about 2 to 25 cm. The thick, dry, often warty skin on the back is generally brown. Poison-secreting glands are located on the back and in the warts but are most concentrated in two prominent raised areas behind the eyes, the parotid glands.

True toads are mainly terrestrial and nocturnal. They frequently remain in fairly small areas, feeding on whatever insects or small animals they can catch with their sticky tongues. Most remain in their burrows in winter and during drought. They breed in water and may migrate 1.5 km or more to a suitable breeding pond. The eggs (600 to over 30,000, depending on species) are laid (spawn) in two long jelly tubes. The tadpoles hatch in a few days and transform into adults in one to three months.


The poison, which is secreted or ejected when the toad is disturbed, irritates the eyes and mucous membranes of many, though not all, predators. The poisons of the Colorado River toad and the giant toad affect animals as large as dogs, in some instances causing temporary paralysis or even death. The Chinese have long used dried toad poison to treat various ailments. Contrary to popular belief, toads do not cause warts.


In many parts of the world, freezing temperatures are common. Aquatic animals in these climates must be able to survive when temperatures fall below freezing. It is well documented that wood frogs actually freeze solid in winter! The lenses of their eyes turn white when they freeze. But when spring arrives, these same frogs thaw out and hop away to get on with their lives! How do they avoid the damage that freezing causes for most creatures? Their cells concentrate sugars, which lowers the freezing point for the cytoplasm and prevents freezing.
