Abstract

Most bacteria have a respiratory chain,* i.e., a system of spatially organized dehydrogenases and cytochromes which carry out the transfer of electrons from the substrate. The main difference between aerobic bacteria and facultative anaerobes is in the terminal electron acceptor: in aerobic bacteria this is oxygen, while in facultative anaerobes it may be either oxygen or an acceptor of the nitrate or sulfate type.
