Cell wall of Gram negative bacteria Cell wall of Gram negative bacteria is more rigid and thick then Gram postive bacteria. It is made up of two layers 1. Peptidoglycan 2. Outer cell wall layer 1. Peptidoglycan It is present in between outer wall layer and cell membrane. The structure is similar as gram positive… Read More

Basics of Medical Microbiology Medical microbiology deals with studying the relationship between host and parasite and understanding the causative agent of disease. In our daily life, human beings are constantly exposed to micro-organisms. The interaction between human and micro-organisms may be useful or harmful interaction. Parasitism can be explained a condition in which microbial population… Read More

Neisseria Gonorrhoeae Disease Neisseria gonorrhoeae (Gonococci) Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a venereal disease 1. Morphological characters They are gram negative,non-sporeforming diplococci with concave adjacent side. It appear like a shape of a kidney. It contains pili that provide adhesion to mucosal surface and inhibit phagocytosis. 2. Cultural characters These gonococci cells grow aerobically as well as anaerobically. These organism can… Read More

 Neisseria meningitidis. Introduction It is a gram negative, non-motile cocci arranged in pairs called as diplococci. Neisseria are aerobic, non-sporulating, oxidase positive cocci. Neisseria meningitidis causes cerebrospinal fever that is Meningococcal meningitis. 1. Morphological characters They are gram negative,spherical shape cocci with flattened adjacent side. Its size ranges from 0.6-0.8 micrometer. Its size,shape and staining… Read More
