A number of nutritional and biochemical properties of more than 100 strains of the oxidase-negative moraxellas (the Mima-Herellea-Acinetobacter group of bacteria) were studied. These properties included the range of carbon sources that can support growth, the utilization of nitrate, the production of proteolytic and lipolytic enzymes, and the reactions involved in the oxidation of sugars and of aromatic compounds. No evidence could be obtained for the accumulation of either poly… Expand
Characterization of the oxidase-negative, gram-negative coccobacilli (theAchromobacter-Acinetobacter group)
  • G. Gilardi
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Antonie van Leeuwenhoek
  • 2005
TLDR
The subdivision of these bacteria is discussed in terms of glucolytic activity in a modified infusion medium, production of gelatinase, hemolysis of blood agar, growth on SS Agar, and utilization of selected organic compounds as the sole source of carbon and energy. Expand
Taxonomy of Acinetobacter: the usefulness of beta-D-xyloside xylohydrolase for strain differentiation.
TLDR
This test proved to be of value for separating strains able to form acid from carbohydrates from the non-oxidative strains and the genetic relationship of all strains tested warrants further study before Acinetobacters are grouped into clearly defined species. Expand
Taxonomy of Marine Bacteria: the Genus Beneckea
TLDR
Nine groups which had deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) containing 45 to 48 moles per cent guanine plus cytosine (GC) were assigned to a redefined genus Beneckea, and all of the strains in this genus, when grown in liquid medium, had a single, polar flagellum. Expand
Description of Acinetobacter venetianus ex Di Cello et al. 1997 sp. nov.
TLDR
Five strains were examined to corroborate the delineation of this taxon by means of phenotypic characterization, DNA-DNA hybridization, selective restriction fragment amplification (AFLP), amplified rDNA restriction analysis (ARDRA), rpoB gene sequence analysis and tRNA intergenic spacer length polymorphism analysis (tDNA-PCR). Expand
Energy Reserves in Acinetobacter
TLDR
The biochemistry and molecular biology of energy reserves in Acinetobacter has not been extensively studied and so this review will attempt to relate this area to what is known of the general biochemistry of bacterial energy reserves. Expand
Rapid method for identification of gram-negative, nonfermentative bacilli
TLDR
A rapid system (OA), based on oxidative attack of substrates, was developed for identification of gram-negative, nonfermentative bacillia (NFB) and results are presented, as well as tables showing the most useful tests for identification. Expand
Acinetobactercelticus sp. nov., a psychrotolerant species widespread in natural soil and water ecosystems.
TLDR
A novel, taxonomically unique group of six strains of the genus Acinetobacter was discovered during an exploratory study on strains culturable from soil and water natural ecosystems in the Bohemian part of the Czech Republic, and all six strains exhibited a unique phenotype, characterized by psychrotolerance. Expand
Additional characteristics of the polyphosphate-accumulating Acinetobacter strain 210A and its identification as Acinetobaccter johnsonii
TLDR
The strain was unambiguously identified as Acinetobacter johnsonii, using a combination of biochemical and genetic properties, and was able to synthesize polyphosphate as well as poly-β-hydroxybutyric acid during growth in batch cultures. Expand
Acinetobacter: a tale of two genera.
  • E. Juni
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Basic life sciences
  • 1982
TLDR
Both groups of acinetobacters contain members that can be manipulated genetically and each will be considered in this discussion. Expand
The Genus Psychrobacter
TLDR
In early studies, all saprophytic, nonpigmented Gram-negative rods were classified together in the genus Achromobacter, but later studies resulted in classification of only the oxidase-negative organisms as strains of Acinetobacter. Expand

Adansonian analysis of 31 Acinetobacter lwoffii and 8 A. anitratus strains found that Bordetella bronchiseptica is closely related to A. faecalis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Aeromonas liquefaciens link with the former groups at a much lower level. Expand
