Burkholderia pseudomallei is a Gram-negative, bipolar, aerobic, motile rod-shaped bacterium. It causes the disease melioidosis in humans and animals and is also capable of infecting plants. The bacteria can from in a number of artificial environments. Optimal temperature is around 40Â°C in pH-neutral or slightly acidic environments. Most strains can ferment sugars without gas formation. The bacteria produces both exo and endo toxins although the role of these toxins has not been fully...
Burkholderia mallei is a gram-negative bipolar aerobic bacterium. The human and animal pathogen causes Glanders. The Latin name of this disease gave name to the causative agent species. It is related to B. pseudomallei although the bacterium is nonmotile. The bacterium can be eliminated through numerous disinfectants including benzalkonium chloride, iodine, mercuric chloride, potassium permanganate, and ethanol. It can also be destroyed by heating or UV. Antibiotics have also been reported...
Burkholderia cepacia complex (BCC), is a group of catalase-producing, non-lactose-fermenting Gram-negative bacteria composed of at least nine different species. It is an important human pathogen that often causes pneumonia in immunocompromised individuals with underlying lung disease. They are typically found in water and soil and can survive for prolonged periods in moist environments. Spread between people occurs often in hospitals, clinics, and camps. Infected hosts are often treated in...
Bordetella pertussis is a Gram-negative, aerobic coccobacillus of the genus Bordetella. It is the causative agent of pertussis or whooping cough and it is non-motile. There is no zoonotic reservoir thus humans are the only hosts. Bacterium is spread by coughing and by nasal dripping after an incubation period of 7 to 14 days. Pertussis is an infection of the respiratory system and characterized by a "whooping" sound when the person breathes in. Before the vaccine was developed there were...
Bordetella bronchiseptica is a small, gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium of the genus Bordetella. It can cause bronchitis although it rarely infects humans. It is closely related to pertussis which causes whooping cough and B. bronchiseptica can persist in the environment for extended periods. Humans are not natural carriers of B. bronchiseptica, which normally infects the respiratory tracts of smaller mammals. It does not express pertussis toxin although it has the genes to do so which...
