Aerobic) • Listeria spp. (aerobic to facultative anaerobic) Most Gram-positive rods grow well on blood agar. However, selective media are available in some cases, for example, cycloserine–cefoxitin–fructose–egg yolk agar (CCFA) for C. difficile. CLOSTRIDIUM SPECIES Clostridia are anaerobic, spore-forming (sporogenous), Gram-positive rods. They are widely distributed in nature and many are common soil-borne bacteria. Their ability to produce spores enables them to survive under adverse environmental conditions and also affords them greater protection from chemical and physical agents.

Examples of cellular targets and effective antibiotics are the following: • Cell wall: Penicillins, cephalosporins, bacitracin, and vancomycin. • Protein synthesis: Mostly work by blocking 30S and 50S subunits of the microbial 70S ribosome. Examples include tetracyclines, chloramphenicol, aminoglycosides, and erythromycin. • DNA: There are several ways certain antibiotics can attack microbial DNA, either by directly damaging its integrity or by interfering with its replication. Examples include fluoroquinolones, rifampin, metronidazole, and sulfas.
