Differences and Similarities Between Bacteria and Fungi

Differences and Similarities Between Bacteria and Fungi

Bacteria and fungi are both microscopic organism but the main difference is bacteria are prokaryotes and fungi are eukaryotes.

Difference between DNA and RNA

Difference between DNA and RNA

Thymine is present in DNA but it's replaced by Uracil in the RNA. As the name suggests oxygen is absent in the carbon-2 of deoxyribose sugar.

T Dependent Antigen, T Independent Antigen

T Dependent Antigen, T Independent Antigen

B-cell response to T-dependent Ag requires assistance from helper T-cells but T-independent Ag can activate B cells without that help.

Innate Immunity vs. Acquired Immunity

Innate Immunity vs. Acquired Immunity

Innate Immunity is present right from the birth but acquired or adaptive immunity is acquired during the course of life.

Primary vs. Secondary Immune Response

Primary vs. Secondary Immune Response

Primary immune response to Ag occurs on the first occasion. Subsequent encounter of B and T cells with same Ag leads to secondary response.

SEM vs. TEM Electron Microscopy

SEM vs. TEM Electron Microscopy

SEM provides detailed images of the surfaces of cells whereas TEM provides details about internal composition, morphology, crystallization.

MHC Class I vs. MHC Class II Protein

MHC Class I vs. MHC Class II Protein

MHC molecules bind peptide fragments derived from pathogens and display them on the cell surface for recognition by the appropriate T cells.

Amoebic dysentery vs. Bacillary dysentery

Amoebic dysentery vs. Bacillary dysentery

Bacillary dysentery also known as shigellosis is a bacterial disease whereas Amoebic dysentery (also known as amoebiasis) is caused by a invasive protozoan parasite.

Taenia solium vs. Taenia saginata 

Taenia solium vs. Taenia saginata 

Taeniasis is caused by both Taenia solium and Taenia saginata but only infections with Taenia solium may cause cysticercosis. Find out why

Neisseria gonorrhoeae vs. Neisseria meningitidis

Neisseria meningitidis is capsulated and ferment maltose (MM), whereas Neisseria gonorrhoeae is non-capsulated and do not ferment maltose.

Difference Between Prokaryotic Cell and Eukaryotic Cell

Difference Between Prokaryotic Cell and Eukaryotic Cell

Eukaryotic cells contain a nucleus with a nuclear membrane enclosing multiple chromosomes, while prokaryotic cells have a single chromosome.

Staphylococcus vs. Streptococcus

Staphylococcus vs. Streptococcus

Staphylococci are catalase positive, gram positive cocci in clusters but Streptococci are catalase negative and may appear in pairs or chains.

Gram-Positive vs. Gram-Negative Bacteria

Gram-Positive vs. Gram-Negative Bacteria

Gram positive bacteria appear purple and gram-negative bacteria appear pink when stained by Gram-staining methods.

Differences between Exotoxins and Endotoxins

Differences between Exotoxins and Endotoxins

Bacterial toxins are broadly divided into two general categories: exotoxins (secreted outside the cell) and endotoxins (LPS).
