Sebaldella termitidis is a rare fastidious microorganism of the Leptotrichiaceae family. A variety of closely related species are associated with severe and even life-threatening disease in humans and animals, such as Streptobacillus moniliformis, the etiological organism of rat-bite fever as well as members of Leptotrichia spp. and Sneathia sanguinegens, which have been reported from cases of septicaemia. In contrast, since its description some 50 years ago, S. ermitidis has so far never been… 

Phylogenetic and comparative genomics of the family Leptotrichiaceae and introduction of a novel fingerprinting MLVA for Streptobacillus moniliformis

Analysis of 47 genomes from 20 different member species of the Leptotrichiaceae provides a novel and reliable basis of support for previously established phylogeny from this group and gives a deeper insight into characteristics of genome structure and gene functions.

Streptobacillus sp. isolated from a cat with pneumonia

This is the first evidence for clinical disease caused by a streptobacillary infection in a domestic cat, and it differed from nine reference strains of StrePTobacillus moniliformis isolated from various sources and host species.

Bacterial Vaginosis–Associated Bacteria in Men: Association of Leptotrichia/Sneathia spp. With Nongonococcal Urethritis

Doxycycline may be more effective than azithromycin for clinical cure of men with Leptotrichia/Sneathia spp and 5 newly described BV-associated bacteria (BVAB) in women.

Trueperella pyogenes as cause of a facial abscess in a grey slender loris (Loris lydekkerianus nordicus)--a case report.

A Trueperella (T.) pyogenes strain isolated from an abscess on the left side of the face of a six year old grey slender loris could successfully be identified phenotypically, by MALDI-TOF MS analysis and genotypically using T.pyogenes 16S-23S rDNA intergenic spacer region specific oligonucleotide primers.

Genomic sequence analysis and characterization of Sneathia amnii sp. nov

Elucidation of the physiology and identification of genes putatively involved in the metabolism and virulence of S. amnii may lead to a better understanding of the role of this potential pathogen in bacterial vaginosis, preterm birth, and other issues associated with vaginal and reproductive health.

A case of cavitary pneumonia caused by leptotrichia species in an immunocompetent host is reported.

Seasonally variable intestinal metagenomes of the red palm weevil (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus)

It is found that the RPW gut microbiota degrades polysaccharides and sucrose with hydrolases and that different active bacterial species in November and July are responsible for the symbiotic relationship between the microbiota and the host.

Phenotypic and Genotypic Characteristics of Members of the Genus Streptobacillus

Spectroscopic methods facilitated differentiation of S. moniliformis, S. hongkongensis and S. felis as well as one divergent isolate and revealed only little intraspecific variability, but generally proved suitable for interspecies discrimination between all three taxa and two groups of divergent isolates.

Uric Acid-Degrading Bacteria in Guts of Termites [Reticulitermes flavipes (Kollar)]

Uricolytic bacteria were present in guts of Reticulitermes flavipes in populations up to 6 × 104 cells per gut. Of 82 strains isolated under strict anaerobic conditions, most were group N

Niabella hirudinis and Niabella drilacis sp. nov., isolated from the medicinal leech Hirudo verbana.

Two Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria, strains E96(T) and E90(T), were isolated from medicinal leeches and characterized by a polyphasic taxonomic approach and are proposed as two novel species of the genus Niabella, Niabella hirudinis sp.

Identification of Yersinia enterocolitica at the Species and Subspecies Levels by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy

Yersinia enterocolitica and other Yersinia species, such as Y. bercovieri, Y. intermedia, and Y. rohdei strains, were differentiated using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy combined with artificial neural network analysis, marking the first example of the identification of specific pathogenicity using FT-IR.
