Strains resembling B. cepacia may belong to the B. cepacia complex, to otherBurkholderia species (for instance, Burkholderia gladioli), or to species from other genera (for instance,Ralstonia pickettii) that share some phenotypic or genotypic similarities with the B. cepacia complex.
Populations susceptible to B. cepacia infection.
The name B. cepacia will relate only to B. cepacia genomovar I. (2008).
The Burkholderia Genome Database: facilitating flexible queries and comparative analyses. Group: Burkholderia cepacia complex Species: Burkholderia cepacia Strain: Burkholderia cepacia AMMD. Bacteria of the Burkholderia cepacia complex consist of five discrete genomic species, including genomovars I and III and three new species: Burkholderia multivorans (formerly genomovar II), Burkholderia stabilis (formerly genomovar IV), and Burkholderia vietnamiensis (formerly genomovar V). Despite considerable interest in studying Burkholderia cepacia complex in the environment, we still do not have efficient methods to detect, isolate, and screen large numbers of B. cepacia isolates. They are noted for their environmental versatility and ability to cause disease in cystic fibrosis patients and individuals with compromised immune systems. individual species to human health. B. cepacia poses If you have used this database, please ensure that you acknowledge the Burkholderia Genome Database publication rather than just the website URL. The Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) is a group of Gram-negative, non-spore-forming bacilli that comprises at least nine species 1.Originally identified as … The Burkholderia cepacia complex consists of nine genomic species called genomovars: B. cepacia, B. multivorans, B. cenocepacia, B. vietnamiensis, B. stabilis, B. ambifaria, B. dolosa, B. anthina, and B. pyrrocinia.. MICROBIOLOGY.
The taxonomy of Burkholderia (formerly Pseudomonas) cepacia complex currently consists of 18 distinct bacterial species with a wide environmental distribution in soil and plants, especially the underground stem (rhizome) () (63, 73) . Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) bacteria can adapt to the lung environment of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients resulting in the emergence of a very difficult to eradicate heterogeneous population leading to chronic infections associated with rapid lung function loss and increased mortality. Pseudomonas cepacia (ex Burkholder, 1950) Palleroni and Holmes, 1981 Synonyms . B. cepacia bacteria are often resistant to common antibiotics.
Burkholderia cepacia complex bacteria: opportunistic pathogens with important natural biology E. Mahenthiralingam1, A. Baldwin2 and C.G. The main outcome of this analysis was that all strains were typeable and that strains of Burkholderia gladioli and of each species of the B. cepacia complex, including B. multivorans, B. stabilis, and B. vietnamiensis, were effectively discriminated.
Dowson2 1 Cardiff School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, Main Building, Cardiff, UK 2 Department of Biological Sciences, Warwick University, Coventry, UK … B. cepaciacomplex species are obligate aerobic gram-negative rods that do not ferment glucose and are catalase positive. Name . The name B. cepacia will relate only to B. cepacia genomovar I. Description and significance.
Burkholderia cepacia [burk-hōld–er–ee-uh si–pay–shee–uh] (also called B. cepacia) is the name for a group or “complex” of bacteria that can be found in soil and water. Winsor GL, Khaira B, Van Rossum T, Lo R, Whiteside MD, Brinkman FS. The Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) consists of a group of genetically distinct Gram-negative bacteria that exhibit a number of similar observable physical traits. Furthermore, … Thank you! Strains resembling B. cepacia may belong to the B. cepacia complex, to other Burkholderia species (for instance, Burkholderia gladioli), or to species from other genera (for instance, Ralstonia pickettii) that share some phenotypic or genotypic similarities with the B. cepacia complex.
