|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 names of taxa within the classification category phylum|
During October 2021, an article was published by A. Oren och G.M. Garrity, in which new names are proposed for a number of taxa within the classification category phylum. This has resulted in many discussions in social media about whether it was really necessary to make these changes, which have created confusion among microbiologists and other professionals who come into contact with bacteriology.Published 2022-09-28.
