Lineage: Bifidobacterium longum; Bifidobacterium; Bifidobacteriaceae; Bifidobacteriales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria

General Information: This organism is found in adult humans and formula fed infants as a normal component of gut flora. Representatives of this genus naturally colonize the human gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and are important for establishing and maintaining homeostasis of the intestinal ecosystem to allow for normal digestion. Their presence has been associated with beneficial health effects, such as prevention of diarrhea, amelioration of lactose intolerance, or immunomodulation. The stabilizing effect on GIT microflora is attributed to the capacity of bifidobacteria to produce bacteriocins, which are bacteriostatic agents with a broad spectrum of action, and to their pH-reducing activity. Most of the ~30 known species of bifidobacteria have been isolated from the mammalian GIT, and some from the vaginal and oral cavity. All are obligate anaerobes belonging to the Actinomycetales, branch of Gram-positive bacteria with high GC content that also includes Corynebacteria, Mycobacteria, and Streptomycetes.

Lineage: Lactococcus garvieae; Lactococcus; Streptococcaceae; Lactobacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Lactococcus garviae is responsible for mastitis in cows and buffalos, and it has been isolated from clinical specimens of human blood, urine, and skin. Lactococcus garvieae is also a well recognized bacterial fish pathogen. L. garvieae as the etiological agent of a hemorrhagic septicemia in farmed trout that was characterized by bilateral exophthalmos, darkening of the skin, congestion of the intestine, liver, kidney, spleen, and brain.
