|Etymology:||Genus name: a helix shaped rod. |
Species epithet: named after the German scientist Hugo Salomon, who was one of the first workers to describe three spiral shaped, but morphologically distinct bacteria from the canine gastric mucosa.
|Significance:||[Of minor importance]|
|Type Strain:||Inkinen = CCUG 37845|
|Micromorphology:||Loosely helical or curved rods(0.8-1.2 x 5-7 µm) that have 10-23 bipolar flagella.|
|Gram +/Gram -:||G-|
|Other Enzymes:||Urease +|
|Fermentation of carbohydrates:||Helicobacter spp. can neither ferment nor oxidize carbohydrates. Exception: H. pylori, which can oxidize glucose to acetate.|
|Disease:||H. salomonis has been isolated from the gastric mucosa of healthy dogs. Pathogenicity not known.
|16S rRNA Seq.:|
||About 35 species have been described within the genus Helicobacter, and this genus is most closely related to Campylobacter, Arcobacter and Sulfurospirillum. H. salomonis is closely related to H. felis and H. bizzozeroni.|
