I added the " - which is a factor of 19x more energy per sugar molecule than the typical anaerobic reaction." edit. Since I am not a chemist, I hope I did the correct calculation. This is such a dramatic difference, I thought it should be highlighted. FrankH 17:47, May 26, 2004 (UTC)

Cannot seem to figure out if there is a difference between facultative aerobes and facultative anaerobes, I think the mention on this page needs its own article or stub or else should be renamed anearobic and linked as such.Brallan 00:29, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Aerobic respiration in bacteria

How is aerobic respiration in bacteria achieved since they don't have mitochondria? The respective link in wikipedia links to aerobic respiration requiring mitochondria. If the cellular membrane is to be used instead, is the proton gradient achieved the same way as in mitochondria?

Section Blanked[edit]

I see this happened a year ago, but is there a good reason that this edit by blanked the "Types" section? I see that some types are sort of defined in the figure, but I don't see a good reason to take out this section. I will reinstate it in a week or so. See this: Wikipedia:Section blanking. -Slapmaster3000 (talk) 17:20, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

I added information to this section, today. The information. About the Pasteur effect. I think it would have been most appropriate in a place that discussed both facultative anaerobes AND aerotolerant organisms. This is the only place I found that meets that criteria, best. However, I also have a feeling that someone will want me to move the data onto the page for either "facultative anaerobes" or "aerotolerant". But it seems, to me, to fit best in a place that includes a description of all of the features in this section.

Lead Section[edit]

I added the sentence starting with "The ability to exhibit aerobic respiration" along with an associated citation, will likely tweak the wording in future and probably continue to find ways to slowly build this article up a bit, the lead section still feels slightly clunky to me.
