Streptococcus oralis subsp._dentisani_clade_058 (HMT-058)
Taxon Description:
2017-09-08 (TC) This species was suggested to merge with Streptococcus oralis subsp. dentisani (HOT398) based on the published genomic study by Jensen et. al. (2016). http://ijs.microbiologyresearch.org/content/journal/ijsem/10.1099/ijsem.0.001433. However since the 16S rRNA sequences AY005042 AY005043 AY005044 AY278632 that represent HOT058 form a distinct clade significantly away from that of HOT398 on the 16S rRNA phylogenetic tree these sequences may represent a distinct strain for the species. We retained this HOT but changed the name to 'Streptococcus oralis subsp. dentisani clade 058' so that future sequencing study can distinguish these sequences from others of this species.
species/Corncobs_unpublished-forHOMD.jpg Corncob structures in dental plaque with a "cob" formed by Corynebacterium matruchotii (magenta) and "kernels" formed by Streptococcus cristatus or the S. mitis/oralis group (green) and Porphyromonas species (blue). The orange cells surrounding the streptococci are Aggregatibacter or Haemophilus spp.
