Aerobic BacteriaBacteria that grow in the presence of O2, which are the most common causes of clinical infection.
Examples Myobacterium tuberculosis, Nocardia spp, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Aerobic bacteria types
• Obligate aerobes require O2 for cellular respiration to oxidise substrates—e.g., sugars and fats to obtain energy.
• Facultative anaerobes can use O2 but can metabolise without O2.
• Microaerophiles require minimal O2.
• Aerotolerant organisms are functionally anaerobic, as they don’t have a terminal O2 acceptor, but can function in the presence of O2.
