Streptococcus gordonii ATCC 10558(T) was isolated from a patient with infective endocarditis in 1946 and announced as a type strain in 1989. Here, we report the 2,154,510-bp draft genome sequence of S. gordonii ATCC 10558(T). This sequence will contribute to knowledge about the pathogenesis of infective endocarditis.
When repetitive infective endocarditis episodes occur in the same patient, accurate species identification is essential for differentiating relapse and a new episode. We report a case, which has had four episodes of IE within 2 years: episode 1 due to Enterococcus faecalis, episode 2 due to Mitis group Streptococcus, Episodes 3 and 4 due to Salivarius group… (More)
Arcobacter spp. have in recent years received increasing interest as potential emerging enteropathogens and zoonotic agents. They are associated with various animals including poultry and can be isolated from meat products. The possibilities of persistence and cross-contamination in slaughterhouses during meat processing are not well established. We have… (More)
Identification of Mitis group streptococci (MGS) to the species level is challenging for routine microbiology laboratories. Correct identification is crucial for the diagnosis of infective endocarditis, identification of treatment failure, and/or infection relapse. Eighty MGS from Danish patients with infective endocarditis were whole genome sequenced. We… (More)
