Gram-Negative Aerobic Bacteria MeSH Descriptor Data 2022


MeSH Heading
Gram-Negative Aerobic Bacteria
Tree Number(s)
B03.440.400
Unique ID
D006088
RDF Unique Identifier

Annotation
general or unspecified; prefer specifics; do not use as a routine coordinate for a gram-negative aerobic bacterium; infection: coordinate with GRAM-NEGATIVE BACTERIAL INFECTIONS
Scope Note
A large group of aerobic bacteria which show up as pink (negative) when treated by the gram-staining method. This is because the cell walls of gram-negative bacteria are low in peptidoglycan and thus have low affinity for violet stain and high affinity for the pink dye safranine.
