Campylobacter fetus subsp. fetus 82-40

Names Campylobacter fetus subsp. fetus 82-40
Accession numbers NC_008599
Background Gram-negative, microaerophilic, flagellate, spiral bacterium, Campylobacter species are the leading cause of food-borne gastroenteritis in developed countries. Campylobacter fetus subsp. fetus causes abortion in sheep. On rare occasions it can cause disease in humans, especially immunocompromised patients. Campylobacter fetus subsp. fetus is transmitted by ingestion in cattle, sheep and goats. Animals can become infected after contact with feces, vaginal discharges, aborted fetuses and fetal membranes. This strain was isolated from the blood of a human patient who was having a renal transplant. (HAMAP: CAMFF)
