Names Aggregatibacter aphrophilus NJ8700
Accession numbers NC_012913
Background Aggregatibacter aphrophilus (strain NJ8700) (formerly Haemophilus aphrophilus) is Gram-negative bacterium isolated from the oral flora of a healthy individual. It is an etiologic agent in infectious endocarditis caused by Gram-negative bacteria. Most often, it is found as a nonpathogenic, commensal resident of dental plaque and the oropharyngeal flora. A. aphrophilus contains genes encoding a type VI secretion system and several factors that may participate in host colonization. (Adapted from PMID: 19447908). (EBI Integr8)
