  • species
  • Pseudomonas is a genus of Gram-negative, Gammaproteobacteria, belonging to the family Pseudomonadaceae and containing 191 validly described species. (wikipedia.org)
  • The generic name Pseudomonas created for these organisms was defined in rather vague terms by Walter Migula in 1894 and 1900 as a genus of Gram-negative, rod-shaped and polar-flagellated bacteria with some sporulating species, the latter statement was later proved incorrect and was due to refractive granules of reserve materials. (wikipedia.org)
  • Members of the genus display these defining characteristics: Rod-shaped Gram-negative Flagellum one or more, providing motility Aerobic Non-spore forming Catalase-positive Oxidase-positive Other characteristics that tend to be associated with Pseudomonas species (with some exceptions) include secretion of pyoverdine, a fluorescent yellow-green siderophore under iron-limiting conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pseudomonas species also typically give a positive result to the oxidase test, the absence of gas formation from glucose, glucose is oxidised in oxidation/fermentation test using Hugh and Leifson O/F test, beta hemolytic (on blood agar), indole negative, methyl red negative, Voges-Proskauer test negative, and citrate positive. (wikipedia.org)
  • All species and strains of Pseudomonas have historically been classified as strict aerobes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pseudomonas infection refers to a disease caused by one of the species of the genus Pseudomonas. (wikipedia.org)
  • Due to their hemolytic activity, even non-pathogenic species of Pseudomonas can occasionally become a problem in clinical settings, where they have been known to infect blood transfusions. (wikipedia.org)

  • Can anybody tell me about the use of pseudomonas cepacia against nematodes and/or fungi. (bio.net)

  • common
  • Pseudomonas may be the most common nucleator of ice crystals in clouds, thereby being of utmost importance to the formation of snow and rain around the world. (wikipedia.org)
  • conditions
  • In the current project, "Control of Na+ and H+ transport in bacterial adaptation," researchers will seek to understand how transport proteins that move hydrogen and sodium cations through the cell membrane allow Pseudomonas to adjust its metabolism to different environmental conditions.

  • Specific
  • Specific choice of antibiotic must be based upon the history of pseudomonas sensitivity to the particular drug in the community and, if the organism is cultured, its specific sensitivity. (healthcentral.com)
