If all your samples are, say, E,coli K12 MG1655, there will be very little difference between the published sequence and what you have. If you have another strain of E.coli, you can't count on there being no indels at all between the two strains.

But cyanobacteria do not seem to use polysaccharides in the same way as plant cells do (building materials, for example) The Calvin-Benson cycle produces glucose which is the starting material for a lot of biosynthetic pathways including that of the nucleotides (ribose from the pentose-phosphate pathway). Glycolytic intermediates are also involved in ...

Why do you think that the only benefit from photosynthesis is polysaccharide synthesis? Photosynthesis allows an organism to convert photons into chemical energy. That chemical energy can be stored as polysaccharides and used as a building material, but it can also just be converted into some other compound, or just used to run the organisms metabolism, ...

To begin answering your question, Does drinking alcohol in reasonable amount by healthy individual (nonalcoholic) having UTI helps to kill bacteria in the urinary tract (in order to get rid of them quicker)?

Since this phenomenon has not been studied much, so it is difficult to give a definite answer. But still, I will post a possible explanation for this. I use the equation $S_2O_3^{2-} +2H^+ + 2e^- \to HS^- + HSO_3^{-}$ as you give in your question. From this wikipedia article, I can say that SRB need to convert $S_2O_3^{2-}$ to $SO_4^{2-}$ before using it ...

After using soap, the pathogens that were previously present in hands are removed by the soap and water.

Also if we wipe our hands to cloth after washing, the bacteria that ...

The word antibiotic refers to metabolic products (chemical compounds) of one microorganism that has detrimental or inhibitory effect to another microorganism.

There can be many reasons to why BBB-like barrier is not present in all the capillaries of the body. Let's talk about them one at a time. Source Blood-brain barrier has its own side effects. Some major side effects are cerebral edema (accumulation of excess water in the extracellular space of the brain, which can result when hypoxia causes the ...

Do bacteria from the water attach themselves to our hands again? Yes if the water does contain bacteria. Also, the chance that your hands will get contaminated is directly dependent on the concentration of bacteria in the water. If we wipe our hands to cloth after washing our hands, do bacteria from the cloth also attach to our hands? Same as with the ...
