Host Lineage: Streptococcus uberis; Streptococcus; Streptococcaceae; Lactobacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria
General Information: This strain was isolated from a clinical bovine mastitis case. Streptococci are Gram-positive, nonmotile, nonsporeforming, catalase-negative cocci that occur in pairs or chains. Members of this genus vary widely in pathogenic potential. Most streptococci are facultative anaerobes, and some are obligate anaerobes. Streptococcus uberis is one of the causative agents of bovine mastitis, one of the most common infections of dairy cattle.
