Query: NC_012815:1092795 Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis DSM 10140, complete genome Lineage: Bifidobacterium animalis; Bifidobacterium; Bifidobacteriaceae; Bifidobacteriales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis (strain DSM 10140 / JCM 10602 / LMG 18314) is an anaerobic Gram-positive lactic acid bacterium commonly found in the guts of healthy humans and has been identified in the infant gut biota, particularly in ileal, fecal, and mucosal samples. Some strains of B. animalis subsp. lactis are able to survive in the GIT, to adhere to human epithelial cells in vitro, to modify fecal flora, to modulate the host immune response, or to prevent microbial gastroenteritis and colitis.

General Information: This strain was isolated from an infected infant in Germany in 1993. Causes respiratory illness in humans and sheep. This group of organisms is capable of invading the respiratory tract of animals and causing severe diseases. They express a number of virulence factors in order to do this including filamentous hemagglutins for attachment, cytotoxins, and proteins that form a type III secretion system for transport of effector molecules into host cells. Bordetella parapertussis can infect humans and sheep and it is unable to persist in the environment. This organism causes a respiratory disease similar to, but less severe than, Bordetella pertussis in humans and a chronic pneumonia in sheep.
