Anaerococcus prevotii DSM 20548

Names Anaerococcus prevotii DSM 20548
Accession numbers NC_013164, NC_013171
Background Anaerococcus prevotii, a Gram-positive, anaerobic, indole-negative coccus, is a common isolate of the normal flora of skin, the oral cavity and the gut and can also be isolated from human clinical specimens such as vaginal discharges and ovarian, peritoneal, sacral or lung abscesses. This strain PC1, the type strain, was isolated from human plasma in about 1948. Its current classification is under debate, and it has been known under many other names (including Micrococcus prevotii, Peptococcus prevotii and Peptostreptococcus prevotii). It can cause human opportunistic infections (adapted from 10.4056/sigs.24194). (EBI Integr8)
