|Etymology:||Genus name: named after the German microbiologist Walter Mannheim.|
Species epithet: of different origin (refers to the fact that this species has been isolated from pigs and ruminants).
|Significance:||[Of minor importance]|
|Type Strain:||177 = CCUG 38462|
|Macromorphology (smell):||Small, regular and greyish colonies (1-2 mm in diameter). Most strains give hemolysis on bovine blood agar.|
|Micromorphology:||Non-motile rods or coccoid rods (0.5 x 1.2 µm).|
|Gram +/Gram -:||G-|
|Other Enzymes:||Ornithine decarboxylase (+), tryptophanase -, urease -.|
|Biochemical Tests:||Citrate -, methyl red -, hydrogen sulphide (H2S) -.|
|Fermentation of carbohydrates:||
|Disease:||Pigs: septicemia, enteritis, pneumonia.
Cattle: septicemia, pneumonia, mastitis.
|16S rRNA Seq.:|
||Six 17 have been described within genus Mannheimia. The relationship between members within the closely related genera Actinobacillus, Haemophilus and Pasteurella is very uncertain since none of these genera forms monophyletic clusters.|
|The revised taxonomy of the mollicutes|
The revised taxonomy of mollicutes (mycoplasmas) has now been introduced on VetBact, which means that many of the species have been given new genus names or moved to another higher taxon.Published 2021-11-25. Read more...
