Query: NC_010503:267924 Ureaplasma parvum serovar 3 str. ATCC 27815 chromosome, complete Lineage: Ureaplasma parvum; Ureaplasma; Mycoplasmataceae; Mycoplasmatales; Tenericutes; Bacteria General Information: This organism (Ureaplasma urealyticum biovar 1) is normally found as a commensal organism in the human genital tract. As an opportunistic pathogen, it can cause a sexually-transmitted disease and is recognized as causing non-chlamydial non-gonococcal urethritis. It can also cause obstetric complications in pregnant women, severe infections in infants, as well as meningitis. Like other Mollicutes, it is a wall-less bacterium and has undergone marked genome reduction. This organism appears to generate ATP through the hydrolysis of urea by the urease enzyme.

General Information: This strain is a strongly adherent, slime-producing, pathogenic strain isolated from a patient with intravascular catheter-associated sepsis. Common skin bacterium. Staphylcocci are generally found inhabiting the skin and mucous membranes of mammals and birds. Some members of this genus can be found as human commensals and these are generally believed to have the greatest pathogenic potential in opportunistic infections. This organism is the most prevalent and persistent Staphylococcus species on human skin. Has emerged as a common cause of nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections, including catheter-associated infections and septicemia, particularly in immunocompromised patients. Highly resistant to many antibiotics including penicillins and cephalosporins.
