    Genetics and Molecular Biology of Streptococci, Lactococci, and Enterococci by Gary M.; Cleary, P. Patrick Dunny ISBN ISBN Hardcover. The genus Streptococcus includes important pathogens and commensals of mucosal membranes of the upper respiratory tract and, for some species, the intestines. The genus Enterococcus, which is also an intestinal commensal, is related to the other streptococci, but is classified separately.

    Bacteria belonging to the genus Streptococcus are the first inhabitants of the oral cavity, which can be acquired right after birth and thus play an important role in the assembly of the oral microbiota. In this article, we discuss the different oral environments inhabited by streptococci and the species that occupy each niche. Special attention is given to the taxonomy of Streptococcus Cited by: Streptococci other than Lancefield groups A or B can be associated with invasive disease in infants, children, adolescents, and adults. The principal clinical syndromes of groups C and G streptococci (most belong to the Streptococcus dysgalactiae group) are bacteremia, septicemia, upper and lower respiratory tract infections (eg, pharyngitis, sinusitis, and pneumonia), skin and soft tissue.

Bacterial genetics. Enterococci are among the vanguard of antibiotic-resistant bacteria both because they are intrinsically unaffected by antibiotics and because they have acquired resistance genes to counter the antibiotics that once were effective.

This new volume offers a comprehensive primary text on enterococci and covers the pathogenesis of infection, molecular biology, and antibiotic resistance.

Streptococci are metabolically active, attacking a variety of carbohydrates, proteins, and amino acids. Glucose fermentation yields mostly lactic acid. In contrast to staphylococci, streptococci are catalase-negative.

Various streptococci are important ecologically as part of the normal microbial flora of animals and humans; some can also cause diseases that range from subacute to acute or even chronic. Among the significant human diseases attributable to streptococci are scarlet fever, rheumatic heart disease, glomerulonephritis, and pneumococcal pneumonia.

Alpha refers to partial hemolysis with a green coloration (from production of an unidentified product of hemoglobin) seen around the colonies; beta refers to complete clearing (figure 5) and gamma means there is no lysis.

Group A and group B streptococci are beta hemolytic, whilst D. Over the past 30 years, multidrug resistant enterococci have emerged as leading causes of hospital acquired infection. With the acquisition of resistance to vancomycin in the mid ’s many of these infections became extremely difficult to treat.

To address this problem, researchers with an interest in various aspects of enterococcal biology have come together to consolidate much of what is. These and other key questions are addressed in this timely book which draws on the recent advances in streptococcal genomics to provide an up-to-date coherent picture of the molecular and cellular biology of : Hardcover.

Overview. Members of the genus Streptococcus and enterococci are all gram-positive cocci that grow in pairs or short to long chains (Figure 25–1) in contrast to the clusters seen with rmore, streptococci and enterococci are catalase negative, whereas staphylococci are catalase positive.

Streptococci and enterococci are classified principally based on their patterns. • Enterococci, formerly streptococci, established as separate species based on DNA homology studies. MID 6 Species of Streptococci Streptococ cal Species Sites of Colonizati on Sites of Infection S.

The diagnosis, antibiotherapy, and prevention of the streptococcal diseases have improved considerably. The streptococci are a diverse group of Gram-positive pathogenic cocci that cause clinical disease in humans and domestic animals. They are traditionally classified on the basis of serological reactions, particularly Lancefield grouping based on cell-wall carbohydrates, and haemolytic activity on blood agar.

Six groups can be defined by genetic analysis: pyogenic streptococci, milleri or. Molecular Biology of Streptococci - CRC Press Book The genus 'streptococcus' is huge and encompasses a large variety of human and animal pathogenic and commensal bacteria.

It is not known why some species are virulent and others not, and why even within one species, the virulence potential varies.

They typically occur singly, in pairs, short chains, and clusters,especially when taken off an agar culture for staining. Â Like the genus Streptococcus, the genus Enterococcus is catalase-negative.
