Host Lineage: Treponema denticola; Treponema; Spirochaetaceae; Spirochaetales; Spirochaetes; Bacteria
General Information: Treponema denticola ATCC 35405 was isolated from a human periodontal pocket. Associated with periodontal disease. This organism is a member of the spirochaetales and is a motile, slender, helically shaped flexible organism. Obligately anaerobic growth occurs at 30-42°C, with a pH of 6.5-8.0. The bacterium is commonly found in the oral cavity of humans and often associated with periodontal disease, an inflammation of the gum tissue that frequently precedes bone resorbtion and subsequent tooth loss.
