Characterisation of anaerobic curved rods (Mobiluncus spp.) isolated from the urogenital tract.

Abstract

Thirty-two strains of anaerobic curved rods isolated from vaginal secretions and one isolated from seminal fluid were examined. Growth of all strains on solid media was superior to growth in liquid media, and at 37 degrees C they grew both anaerobically and in O2 5% in N2; they also grew anaerobically at 33 degrees C but not at 42 degrees C. No growth… (More)
