Hi: What is the smallest bacterium that fits all of the following categories?: 1. Not gram-negative 2. Free of lipopolysaccharide 3. Coagulase-negative 4. Relies solely on homolactate fermentation for energy and therefore does not generate any CO2. 5. Aerotolerant-anaerobic [can survive in oxygen but doesn't use it for respiration or otherwise require it]. 6. Hemolysin-negative 7. Free of super-antigens 8. Non-allergenic Please note this is not a homework question but simply a question of my genuine interest. Thanks a bunch, Green
