Names Streptobacillus moniliformis DSM 12112
Accession numbers NC_013515, NC_013516
Background Streptobacillus moniliformis (strain ATCC 14647 / DSM 12112 / NCTC 10651 / 9901) is an aerobic Gram-positive bacterium isolated from a case of rat bite fever. This systemic illness is characterized by fever, chills, and joint pain which can progress to endocarditis, meningitis or pneumonia if left untreated. Although infection is usually associated with a rodent bite, this disease can be caused by ingestion of contaminated food or water. S. moniliformis is the causative agent of rat bite fever in North and South America while a different organism, Spirillum minus, is primarily responsible for this disease in Asia and other countries.
