these organisms canon use oxygen for growth, but tolerate oxygen fairly well

1 Answer

These organisms are called aerotolerant anaerobes. They do not use oxygen for growth, but they can tolerate its presence as they possess enzymes such as superoxide dismutase and catalase, which help to neutralize the toxic byproducts of oxygen metabolism.
