Query: NC_015558:1389369 Streptococcus parauberis KCTC 11537 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Streptococcus parauberis; Streptococcus; Streptococcaceae; Lactobacillales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Fish pathogen. Streptococcus parauberis is one of the species implicated in warm water streptococcosis in aquaculture fish. This organism causes a systemic disease with high mortality and significant economic impact. Isolated from the spleen of diseased olive flounder collected from an aquaculture farm in Jeju Island, South Korea, in 2006.

General Information: This strain is a serotype V clinical isolate and is the most common type amoung GBS-infected (group B streptococcal) non-pregnant adults. Causes meningitis and sepsis in newborns. 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. Serologic grouping is based on antigenic differences in cell wall carbohydrates, in cell wall pili-associated protein, and in the polysaccharide capsule in group B streptococci. This organism is the leading cause of meningitis and sepsis in newborns. Additionally this organism is the cause of serious infections in immunocompromised adults. Able to asymptomatically colonize human skin and mucous membranes. This organism is also implicated in cases of mastitis in cows.
