Why does OJ need to be refigerated?

Many grocery stores have only Orange Juice in the refrigerated section, while the other juices sit on an un-refrigerated shelf. What's the deal with that? Why can't the OJ sit on the shelf like every other juice?

I'm looking for an answer more complete than vague references to bacteria and such, which is all I could turn up using Google. Why can't OJ be pasturized like other juices? Or is it pasturized and there's some other issue?
