what gram negative coc? - (Mar/28/2009 )

Pages: 1 2 Next

Hello,

I did some tests on a bacteria and i don't have a Bergey's manual to find out what bacteria I have. I already know it's NOT neisseria.Could someone help me to find out what gram-negative coc this ? (sorry for my bad english)

1. morphological properties

shape: coc
Position : disorder
Gram : G-
KOH: visceus + G-
Aminopeptidase: +  G-

2. culture characteristics

view on SBA
Diameter: 2-3 mm
Shape: round
Hoogte: flat
Rand: intact
Oppervlak: shiny
Lijnenting op SBA: even at the growth line
Steekenting in SBG: growth
Steekenting in SBG: no run (still intact...)
Motility: +-, not really agile
Citraat: Koser-citraat: - Koser is more important then simmons => citraat -
Simmons-citraat: +
Malonaat: -


3. Biochemical characteristics

could it be Veillonella?
are you from Holland, Belgium or Suriname since you speak dutch?

Ja , ik ben van BelgiŽ :D
Volgende week heb ik waarschijnlijk een Bergey's manual ter beschikking en ga ik daar even in rondneuzen. Alvast bedankt voor de tip, ik zal er eerst eens speciaal op letten als mijn testjes overeen lijken te komen met Veillonella. :lol:

edit: ik veronderstel dat er zo geen online versie bestaat van de Bergey's manual? (ik vind toch niet direct iets ;) )

Indeed there is no Bergeys online manual.
There is however a flow chart that is online and you can get it here:
flowcharts, this is also how I got the Veillonella, I did not have time really to check Bergey's and I do not have acces to it at the moment.

It does seem strange that you are able to do so many labtests, but have no acces to Bergeys.
Are you working at a university or?

PS. I know dutch and understand you, but the others here dont :P

Yes i'm still going to highschool. I need to find it untill next week. And i know it's a gramnegative coc just from thursday. So I don't have alot of time and I never used Bergey's manual, so i put it here. I thought i could get some hints for bacteria, so I can directly look in Bergey's manual if they match. ;)

update: i did my gramtest again and it looks like it are NO cocs. So it looks that i have a facultatively anaerobic gramn-negative rod.
I searched in my papers and it looks like I have Klebsiella ozaenae. Only the urease test should be negative (i have positif) and dulcitol should be negative and mine is positif. Is this negligible?

grtz

Klebsiella species do produce urease if I am not mistaken, so your test should be positive like you said.

Maybe you need to do a H2S test, Klebsiella ozaenae produces H2S

hmm my manual says its H2S negative, just like my K. ozaenae. Everything matches exept the dulcitol test (is positive, should be negative). :)

Yes I was wrong, K. species does NOT produce H2S.
I ment to say: test it, and it if does not produce H2S its K. ozaenae.


However Klebsiella is urease positive, wich you have so thats ok.

are you sure the dulcitol test needs to be negative?

Check the attachement. I havent had time to read it in depth, but it might help you.

Think klebsiella may be your bug.

note - all the enterics produce H2S - it's a matter of amount that is used to differentiate among them.
