|16S rRNA Seq.:|
||About 2 species have been described within genus Glaesserella, but the relationship between members within the closely related genera Actinobacillus, Glaesserella, Haemophilus, Mannheimia and Pasteurella is very uncertain since only few of these genera forms monophyletic clusters.
Note that the name of this bacterium is still Haemophilus parasuis in the phylogenetic tree.
|Comment:||The V-factor is required for growth, but not the X-factor.|
|New families introduced within the order Enterobacterales|
The order Enterobacterales (formerly called Enterobacteriales) previously consisted of bacteria with different properties and phylogenetically, these bacteria were far apart. In order for the taxonomy to be more in line with phylogeny, some of these bacteria have, therefore, been sorted into 6 new families.Published 2022-04-13. Read more...
