Marfan's syndrome is a genetic disorder of the connective tissue that causes excessively tall stature and long extremities. It is carried by the gene FBN1, which encodes the connective protein fibrillin-1, and is a dominant trait. The human genetic makeup contains a pair of FBN1 genes, so because of its dominance, inheriting one affected FBN1 gene from either parent will result in Marfan's syndrome. It effects both males and females, and has no ethnic bias. It was named after Antoine Marfan,...
Yersinia enterocolitica is a species of gram-negative coccobacillus-shaped bacterium, belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Infection from Yersinia enterocolitica causes the zoonotic disease yersiniosis. Most infected animals recover from the disease and become asymptomatic carriers. Acute infections lead to mild self-limiting entero-colitis or terminal ileitis in humans. Symptoms include watery or bloody diarrhea and fever. After oral uptake it replicates in the terminal ileum and...
Helicobacter pylori is a Gram-negative, microaerophilic bacterium that can inhabit various areas of the stomach, particularly the antrum. It causes low-level inflammation of the stomach lining and is linked to gastric ulcers and stomach cancer. Out of those infected, 80%, are asymptomatic. It was initially named Campyloacter pyloridis and then renamed C. pylori to correct the Latin grammar error. It was later placed in the genus, Helicobacter. Over 50% of the population has H. pylori in...
Clostridium perfringens (formerly known as C. welchii) is a Gram-positive, rod-shaped, anaerobic, spore-forming bacterium of the genus Clostridium. It is always present in nature and is a normal component of decaying vegetation, marine sediment, the intestinal tract of humans, other vertebrates, insects, and soil. It can be a human pathogen and also harmlessly ingested. Commonly it is encountered in infections as a component of the normal flora where it takes a minor role in the disease....
Zucchini Yellow Mosaic Virus (ZYMV) is an aphid-borne potyvirus and is regarded as a major pathogen of cucurbits. It affects pumpkins, squashes, vegetable marrows, courgettes, melons, watermelons, cucumbers, gherkins, and various gourds especially zucchinis. The effects are severe leaf mosaic, yellowing and eventually the leaves show "shoestring" symptoms. Fruits can become stunted, twisted and deformed by raised protuberances, which make them unmarketable. Infection may be spread through...
