||About 2 species have been described within genus Glaesserella, but the relationship between members within the closely related genera Actinobacillus, Glaesserella, Haemophilus, Mannheimia and Pasteurella is very uncertain since only few of these genera forms monophyletic clusters.
Note that the name of this bacterium is still Haemophilus parasuis in the phylogenetic tree.
|Comment:||The V-factor is required for growth, but not the X-factor.|

For a long time, Rhodococcus hoagii was referred to Rhodococcus equi on VetBact, because we experienced some resistance to the name that is now considered to be the correct one, i.e. Rhodococcus hoagii. Now you can find the bacterium in question under the correct name in VetBact, but you can also find the bacterium when searching for the old name.Published 2021-10-10. Read more...
