Sheep blood (5%), chocolate, and MacConkey agar plates were inoculated for the isolation of aerobic organisms. The plates were incubated at 37[degrees] C aerobically (MacConkey agar) and under 5% carbon dioxide (blood and chocolate agar), and examined at 24 and 48 hours.
Energy transfer in organisms that cannot use atmospheric oxygen, the anaerobic organisms, is relatively inefficient; organisms that do use atmospheric oxygen, aerobic organisms, transfer that energy with far greater efficiency.
Antibiotic susceptibility testing was done by Kirby Bauer disc diffusion method for all the aerobic organisms [5].
Hundred pus samples were collected from foot ulcers of diabetic patients and assessed for the growth of aerobic organisms. Out of the hundred samples 90 yielded aerobic bacterial growth.
primarily utilized culture-dependent techniques, which favor identification of aerobic organisms over anaerobes (Pryor, G.
The organisms involved differ from those implicated in acute otitis media and include aerobic organisms, predominantly Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Proteus spp.
To accelerate ATP-synthesis, aerobic organisms harness the potential of an electrochemical concentration gradient across the cell, created by "pumping" protons out using energy from an oxygen reduction reaction.
Instead, biocides mostly kill circulating aerobic organisms upsetting the population balance in favor of sequestered, unreachable anaerobes.
The results do not, however, run contrary to existing theories on life's journey from anaerobic to aerobic organisms. The results quantify the nature of gas molecules containing carbon, hydrogen, and sulfur in the earliest atmosphere, but they shed no light on the much later rise of free oxygen in the air.
This will ensure that there is at least an inch of space between the water's surface and the top of the lid, to allow for adequate air exchange, since paramecia are aerobic organisms. A glass or plastic container will work; just ensure that a lid can be placed on the container.
Fortunately, aerobic organisms such as humans have elaborately developed circulatory and respiratory systems available to continuously deliver oxygen to the cells.
In a detailed bacteriologic study of peritonsillar abscess, Jousimies-Somer et al found aerobic organisms in approximately 86% of cases and anaerobic organisms in approximately 82%.
Like wastewater treatment, fermentation requires the presence of aerobic organisms. DO meters can also be used to calculate chemical oxygen demand (COD) and biological oxygen demand (BOD), although titrators and respirometers are also often used for these applications.
Some biomarkers of environmental conditions, like those related to the rise of oxygen starting about 2.4 billion years ago and the subsequent changes towards an aerobic metabolism, have global significance and therefore it could be anticipated they appearance in all aerobic organisms at specific developmental stage according their phylogenetic trajectory.
Some biomarkers of environmental conditions, such as those related to the rise of [O.sub.2] starting about 2.4 billion years ago and subsequent changes toward an aerobic metabolism, have global significance and therefore might be expected to be evident in all aerobic organisms at specific developmental stage(s) according to their phylogenetic trajectory.
