Klebsiella pneumoniae is a Gram-negative, non-motile, encapsulated, lactose fermenting, facultative anaerobic, rod shaped bacterium found in the normal flora of the mouth, skin, and intestines. It is the most important member of the Klebsiella genus of Enterobacteriaceae. It is naturally occurring in soil and about 30% of strains can fix nitrogen in anaerobic conditions. Hans Christian Gram developed the technique now known as Gram staining in 1884 to discriminate between K. pneumoniae and...

Escherichia coli is a Gram-negative rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms. Most strains are harmless; however, some such as O157:H7 can cause food poisoning in humans and are often responsible for product recalls. The normal flora of the gut normally contains the harmless strains and often provide K2 to the body. They are not always confined to the intestine and have the ability to survive briefly outside of the body. It grows easily...
