Background Spirosoma linguale has been isolated from soil and fresh water. This yellow bacterium is very pleomorphic with a cell shape appearing as filaments, helices, coils, rings and horseshoes. Strain DSM 74 was originally isolated from a laboratory water bath in Germany, possibly in 1894. It is positive for respiratory type of metabolism, motility by gliding, oxidase, catalase, b-galactosidase and alkaline phosphatase activities. It can use mannose and sucrose, is susceptible to ampicillin, carbenicillin and doxycycline and resistant to benzylpenicillin, chloramphenicol, gentamicin, neomycin and polymyxin B (adapted from PMID 16403892).
