General Information:
Strains form small (c 0.5 mm in diameter) colonies on Columbia sheep blood agar after 5 days incubation [1].
Phenotypic Characteristics:
Strains are asaccharolytic and generally unreactive in biochemical tests. Gas is not produced. Metabolic end-products of metabolism are acetate, propionate and isovalerate. The major cellular fatty acids are iso-C15:0 and C16:0. The mol % G+C content of the DNA is 59.4 [1].
Prevalence and Source:
Found in the human mouth
Disease Associations:
Has been isolated from an endodontic infection and clinical samples obtained from breast and pelvic abscesses, peritoneal fluid and a sebaceous cyst.
