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 bacterium is part of the normal bacterial flora in horses, however, it has also been isolated from a number of other mammals including humans. S. equi subsp. zooepidemicus is the cause of Inflammatory Airway Disease (IAD) in horses. This organism is also an opportunistic pathogen which can cause infections in the upper respiratory tract, uterus, umbilicus and in open wounds. Pathogenic in horses, goats and sheep. 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.
