Veterinary bacteriology: information about important bacteria
|Etymology:||Genus name: peptone loving. |
Species epithet: indol producing.
|Significance:||[Of minor importance]|
|Alternative Species Name(s):||Peptostreptococcus indolicus|
|Type Strain:||ATCC 29427.|
||Small (0.5-1.0 mm), grayish colonies. Most strains give no hemolysis.|
|Micromorphology:||Cocci (0.5-0.6 µm in diameter), which appear single, in pairs, short chains or small clusters.|
|Gram +/Gram -:||G+|
|Other Enzymes:||Coagulase + (most strains), tryptophanase (+), urease -.|
|Fermentation of carbohydrates:||Peptoniphilus spp. do not ferment carbohydrates.|
|Disease:||Bovine summer mastitis (in combination with Trueperella pyogenes).
|16S rRNA Seq.:|
||About 50 species have been described within the genus Peptoniphilus and this genus belong to the order Clostridiales. However, P. indolicus is not that closely related to clostridia.|
|New names of bacterial phyla|
The taxonomic category phylum was previously not regulated by the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes (ICNP), but now this has changed and it was decided to revise the names of bacterial phyla. All phyla must be written in italics (which has been done on VetBact also before) and have the ending -ota.Published 2023-03-01. Read more...
|The taxonomy of chlamydias|
Species within the family Chlamydiaceae were previously divided into two genera Chlamydia and Chlamydophila. However, the differences between these two genera were not that great and many research groups have not accepted this division. Therefore, the genus Chlamydophila has been returned to the genus Chlamydia and this change has now been incorporated in VetBactPublished 2023-03-15. Read more...
