However, should the cell suffer a long-term stress, it becomes an aerotolerant anaerobe (6,7) and continues to live through a process called fermentation even if oxygen is present.
The LAB belong to a group of Gram-positive, low guanine-cytosine (G+C) containing, nonmotile, nonspore-forming, aerotolerant bacteria that ferment hexoses to lactic acid [15].
It is an anaerobic organism but is aerotolerant, even expressing the ability to employ oxidative phosphorylation for energy conservation.
Anaerobic actinomycetes are fastidious and aerotolerant species that grow slowly on rich media and provide pinpoint colonies after a 1-week culture period; they are also difficult to identify by using phenotypic methods.
Clostridium septicum is a large, Gram-positive, aerotolerant, gas-producing bacillus with subterminal spores.
Biochemical screening indicates that this isolate represents a novel organism distinct from previously described aerotolerant species of the genus Clostridium.
We propose a testable hypothesis: cilia and other undulipodia evolved from aerotolerant, sulfide-oxidizing, RB-forming free-living mud spirochetes (approximately 0.
can be differentiated from other Campylobacter-like bacteria by two distinctive features: They grow at 15[degrees]C, and they are aerotolerant (Wesley 1997).
faecalis is an aerotolerant anaerobe, which survives and grows in air in the presence of oxygen, but metabolizes carbohydrates by employing fermentation rather than respiration, the explanation for the ROS-sensitivity of cells kept in water within a brass vessel must lie with the second of these two possibilities.
Using the terminology of Chapman and Gest (1983), these models generally assume that the host was anaerobic, but may have been aerotolerant.
The disease is caused by a common bacterium, Streptococcus pneumoniae, or pneumococcus, a gram-positive, alpha-hemolytic, bile soluble aerotolerant anaerobe, which can attack different parts of the body.
These cells become aerotolerant cells, as they make energy without oxygen, and unlike obligate anaerobes, they are not poisoned by oxygen.
