streptococci


Streptococci (sci. classification streptococcaceae) belong to the family of lactic-acid bacteria populating the intestine (like lactobacilli and enterococci) and are Gram-positive, anaerobic but aerotolerant pathogens arranged in chains. Like staphylococci, they exhibit very little UVC resistance.

amino acid


Amino acids are organic compounds of amine (-NH2) and carboxylic acid (-COOH) with specific side-chains (-R) which join together in long chains to form proteins, neurotransmitters, and transport. Amino acids primarily contain hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon; they form one of the basic building blocks of life.

amorphous


Amorphous material contains atoms in an irregular shape rather than an ordered structure. An amorphous state is generated via rapid heating or cooling. The opposite of an amorphous structure is a crystalline structure.

aspergillus


Aspergillus is a microorganism which belongs to the thermotolerant moulds. Aspergillus niger (black mould), Aspergillus amstelodami and Aspergillus fumigatus are the known members of this genus. They grow best at high temperature, and a number of these aspergillus species form metabolic products that are toxic for humans (mycotoxins) by causing foo [..]
