Tree Number:   B03.440.400
Definition English:   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. 
Indexing Annotation English:   GEN: avoid; prefer specifics; do not use as a routine coord for a gram-negative aerobic bact; infection: coord IM with GRAM-NEGATIVE BACTERIAL INFECTIONS (IM); DF: GRAM NEG AEROBIC BACT
