Even though viruses like the deadly Ebola virus pictured above, are despised, they are fascinating when seen under a microscope.

The Ebola virus and it’s close relative the Marburg virus are members of the Filoviridae family. These viruses are the causative agents of severe hemorrhagic fever, a disease with a fatality rate of up to 90%. The Ebola virus infects mainly the capillary endothelium and several types of immune ce...

Inner ear hair cells. Colored scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of sensory hair cells from the organ of corti, in the cochlea of the inner ear. These cells are surrounded by a fluid called the endolymph. As sound enters the ear it causes waves to form in the endolymph, which in turn cause these hairs to move. The movement is converted into an electrical signal, which is passed to the brain. Courtesy SPL / Photo Researchers, Inc.

The cochlea in our inner ear have 15,000 tiny, hair-like structures called “stereocilia”, or hair cells. There are 2 types: auditory and vestibular, responsible for hearing and balance respectively. Auditory hair cells function by bending in response to sound, and their movements are transmitted as electrical signals to the brain, which interprets them as sound. When hair cells are damaged or killed, it can cause permanent hearing loss.

Inner ear hair cells.

The science behind hearing loss The cochlea in our inner ear contains 15,000 tiny, hair-like structures called “stereocilia”, or hair cells. There are two types: auditory and vestibular, responsible for hearing and balance respectively. Auditory hair cells function by bending in response to sound, and their movements are transmitted as electrical signals to the brain, which interprets them as sound. When these hair cells are damaged or killed, it can cause permanent hearing loss—and although hearing aids can be used as a kind of “hearing band-aid”, the cells cannot be regenerated. Birds and many amphibians have the natural ability to recover their hearing by regenerating hair cells, and researchers are currently studying them in hopes of artificially mimicking their regeneration process. They have also recently found that the zebrafish uses hair cells on its body to sense its surroundings, and these work in similar ways to humans’, presenting an opportunity for experimentation to screen helpful chemicals and treatments. Researchers have managed to identify protective chemicals by dyeing the fish’s hair cells, administering the chemicals, then exposing the fish to another chemical known to kill hair cells. The surviving hairs remain dyed, signifying that the protective chemical worked. These chemicals are now being tested on rodents, but there’s been no human testing yet, and it’s estimated that a cure for hearing loss is still 20 years away.

Hearing Loss Cures: Regrowing Inner Ear Hair Cells Research

Scientists say by re-growing inner ear hair cells we can restore hearing. This breakthrough could lead to significant advances towards curing deafness and hearing loss in the future.

They depicted the proteins in just two basic colors: Gray equals host, orange equals virus.

This human immunodeficiency virus model summarizes the results from more than 100 of the latest scientific publications in the fields of virology, X-ray analysis and NMR spectroscopy. The depicted spatial configurations of 17 different viral and cellular proteins found in the HIV particle are in strict accordance with known 3D structures. The viral membrane in the model includes 160,000 lipid molecules of 8 different types in the proportion found in the HIV particle

a coherent image of a 100-nanometer HIV particle. They depicted the proteins in just two basic colors: Gray equals host, orange equals virus. HIV breaks into immune cells and hijacks their genes. The orange proteins on the outside bind to the immune cell, letting the viral core slip inside. Once in, it fuses with the cell membrane (gray shell), turns its viral RNA into DNA, and integrates into the cell nucleus. The host cell then starts making viral proteins, turning into a virus factory.

Medical illustration of Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

pseudomonas aeruginosa Miscellaneous info- Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates may produce three colony types. Natural isolates produce a small, rough colony. Clinical samples typically have either a fried-egg appearance or a mucoid appearance.

pseudomonas aeruginosa Human health and disease - Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen of great concern in hopital settings. Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection is a serious problem in patients with cancer, cystic fibrosis, and burns. The case fatality rate in these patients is 50 percent.

pseudomonas aeruginosas negative gram stain basically equates to a class of bacteria that don't retain the crystaled violet stain used in the Gram staining method.

pseudomonas aeruginosa is contracted through warm moist environments. It can be contracted through tubs, soil, contact with an infected person, and through hospitalization over a week.

pseudomonas aeruginosa is a motile bacterium. It's means of movement and mobility involves just a single flagella. This bacterium only having a single flagella makes it fairly slow in movement.

pseudomonas aeruginosa has a biohazard level 2, meaning that the bacterium is mildly harmful to the environment animals and humans.

pseudomonas aeruginosa Aerobic means - that an organism can survive in oxygenated conditions.

pseudomonas aeruginosa is a bacterium with a biohazard level of 2.
