Brachybacterium faecium DSM 4810

Names Brachybacterium faecium DSM 4810
Accession numbers NC_013172
Background Brachybacterium faecium (strain ATCC 43885 / DSM 4810 / NCIB 9860) is a free-living, nonmotile, Gram-positive bacterium, originally isolated from poultry deep litter. It is of phylogenetic interest because of its location in the Dermabacteraceae. B. faecium is known for its rod-coccus growth cycle and grows aerobically or weakly anaerobically. It is capable of degrading uric acid, and fermenting cellobiose, glucose, maltose, and mannose, but not cellulose, chitin, or gelatin. The optimal growth temperature is 25-30 degrees Celsius.
