• 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)
  • P. aeruginosa és l' espècie tipus del gènere Pseudomonas (Migula). (wikipedia.org)
  • Bacteremia without a detectable urinary focus, especially if due to Pseudomonas species other than aeruginosa, should raise the possibility of contaminated IV fluids, medication, or antiseptics used in placing the IV catheter. (healthcentral.com)
  • Pseudomonas is a genus of Gram-negative , Gammaproteobacteria , belonging to the family Pseudomonadaceae and containing 191 validly described species. (wikipedia.org)
  • Despite the vague description, the type species, Pseudomonas pyocyanea (basonym of Pseudomonas aeruginosa ), proved the best descriptor. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • All species and strains of Pseudomonas have historically been classified as strict aerobes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pseudomonas can be found occasionally in the axilla and anogenital areas of normal skin but rarely in the stools of adults unless antibiotics are given. (healthcentral.com)
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa lives in the environment and can be spread to people in healthcare settings when they are exposed to water or soil that is contaminated with these germs. (cdc.gov)
  • Healthcare facilities should have water management plans (see Reduce Risk from Water ) that help ensure water quality and reduce the risk of exposure to potentially harmful germs like Pseudomonas aeruginosa . (cdc.gov)
  • 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.

  • Pulmonary infection can occur in hospitalized patients in association with endotracheal intubation, tracheostomy, or IPPB treatment in which Pseudomonas has joined with other gram-negative rods in colonizing the oropharynx. (healthcentral.com)
