facultative aerobe  n.

p. 546

It turns out that it is the most abundant facultative aerobe (i.e., it grows in the presence or absence of oxygen; chapter 6).

fecal transplantation  n.

p. 548

Indeed, fecal transplantations with stools from healthy individuals have been used successfully to reestablish the "healthy" gut microbiome in affected patients and prevent C. difficile disease.

female sex bias  n.

p. 595-596

Wolbachia endosymbionts bias the sex of their hosts' offspring, often introducing a female bias (Fig. 21.9). [...] FIGURE 21.9 Wolbachia and its female sex bias.

FlgM  n.

p. 527

Thus, excess flagellins do not accumulate or spontaneously assemble in the cytoplasm. E. coli, for example, makes an inhibitor molecule (FlgM) that blocks the synthesis of flagellins.

flippase  n.

p. 246

We do know that newly formed phospholipid molecules appear first in the inner leaflet of the cell membrane, and some are then transferred to the external leaflet by membrane proteins such as flippases.

fluorescent stain  n.

p. 29

Fluorescent stains can also be used with light microscopy. The technique relies on the fluorescence emitted from chemicals called fluorochromes when exposed to incident light of a shorter wavelenght.

FtsA  n.

p. 103

But the story doesn't end there: FtsZ is also a prokaryotic homolog of the eukaryotic cytoskeletal protein tubulin (chapter 2), and FtsA is homologous to another eukaryotic cyoskeletal protein, actin.

ftsZ gene  n.

p. 103

Interestingly, ftsZ is but one of the many genes that, when mutated, exhibit the same filament-forming phenotype. Indeed, there are over a dozen fts genes.

fungal pathogen  n.

p. 426
