The growth of gram-negative anaerobes requires the complete absence of oxygen (≤0.001%), and is usually treated in an anaerobic chamber.However, this traditional method is costly and time consuming.In this study, we describe a new, rapid method for the culture of anaerobic bacteria, such as P. gingivalis, and P. endodontalis, in a rotary shaker under anaerobic conditions, by sealing the bacteria growth media from oxygen exposure using a mineral oil overlay. By using these cells, we found P. gingivalis or P. endodontalis mediated different signaling pathways in RAW264.7 cells.
