Campylobacter jejuni is a small genome pathogen that is incapable of growing strictly anaerobically due to its dependence on an oxygen-requiring ribonucleotide reductase for DNA synthesis. Nevertheless, it has a complex branched respiratory chain, which allows the use of several alternative electron acceptors for growth under oxygen-limited conditions. C. jejuni is equipped with both nitrate reductase (Nap) and nitrite reductase (Nrf) located in the periplasm, each predicted to receive… CONTINUE READING
