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.

Subject: NC_007350:692041 Staphylococcus saprophyticus subsp. saprophyticus ATCC 15305,

Lineage: Staphylococcus saprophyticus; Staphylococcus; Staphylococcaceae; Bacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: The original ATCC isolate was from a human urine specimen. Commensal Staphylococcal species that can cause acute urinary tract infections. 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, normally a commensal on human skin and mucous membranes, is now the second most common cause of acute urinary tract infections after Escherichia coli. It often causes uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI) in female outpatients.
