Facultative anaerobe producing small (<0.5 mm diameter) colonies after two days aerobic growth on Blood Agar plates. It is reported that anaerobic incubation may be required for growth on initial isolation but that strains become aerotolerant on subsequent subcultures. Gram positive cocci found in pairs or short chains. Weakly fermentative and generally unreactive in commonly used biochemical and physiological tests and thus difficult to definitively identify by phenotypic means; molecular identification is recommended [1]. Found in dental plaque on the tongue and has been isolated from periodontal pockets in periodontitis and exudate from pericoronitis associated with erupting third molars Although found as part of the normal microbiota of the mouth and gastrointestinal orogenital tracts Gemella morbillorum is capable of causing a wide range of infections. Most of these can be attributed to spread via the bloodstream and thus infective endocarditis is the commonest. Other infections include meningitis brain liver and lung abscess osteomyelitis and septic thrombophlebitis. 534 Bacteria Firmicutes Bacilli Lactobacillales Carnobacteriaceae Granulicatella adiacens Named Oral 0 D50540 Abiotrophia adiacens | Abiotrophia adjacens | Streptococcus adjacens 46124 55 626 3846 SEQF1605 555 Bacteria Firmicutes Bacilli Bacillales Gemellaceae Gemella bergeri Named Oral 0 AY005050 Gemella bergeri | Gemella bergeriae 84136 7 290 3067 SEQF2460 596 Bacteria Firmicutes Bacilli Lactobacillales Carnobacteriaceae Granulicatella elegans Named Oral 0 Y15408 Abiotrophia elegans 137732 20 176 3119 SEQF1608 626 Bacteria Firmicutes Bacilli Bacillales Gemellaceae Gemella haemolysans Named Oral 0 L14326 Neisseria haemolysans 1379 90 769 7234 SEQF1019 | SEQF2070 757 Bacteria Firmicutes Bacilli Bacillales Gemellaceae Gemella sanguinis Named Oral 0 AY005051 84135 13 193 4756 SEQF2071 829 Bacteria Actinobacteria Actinomycetia Bifidobacteriales Bifidobacteriaceae Gardnerella vaginalis Named Vaginal 0 EF194095 Corynebacterium vaginale | Haemophilus hemolyticus | Haemophilus vaginalis 2702 1326 8998 79879 SEQF1577 | SEQF1757 | SEQF2049 | SEQF2068 | SEQF2280 | SEQF2282 | SEQF2491 | SEQF2492 871 Bacteria Gracilibacteria_(GN02) Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[C-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[O-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[F-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[G-1] bacterium_HMT_871 Phylotype Oral 0 1226338 0 0 0 872 Bacteria Gracilibacteria_(GN02) Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[C-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[O-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[F-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[G-1] bacterium_HMT_872 Phylotype Oral 0 1226339 0 0 0 873 Bacteria Gracilibacteria_(GN02) Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[C-2] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[O-2] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[F-2] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[G-2] bacterium_HMT_873 Phylotype Oral 0 1226340 0 0 0 928 Bacteria Firmicutes Bacilli Bacillales Gemellaceae Gemella sp._HMT_928 Unnamed Oral 0 1785995 0 0 0 SEQF2783 996 Bacteria Gracilibacteria_(GN02) Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[C-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[O-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[F-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[G-3] bacterium_HMT_996 NonOralRef NonOralRef 0 363464 0 0 0 SEQF2724 997 Bacteria Gracilibacteria_(GN02) Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[C-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[O-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[F-1] Gracilibacteria_(GN02)_[G-4] bacterium_HMT_997 NonOralRef NonOralRef 0 363464 0 0 0 SEQF2725
