Query: NC_016630:864601 Filifactor alocis ATCC 35896 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Filifactor alocis; Filifactor; Peptostreptococcaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria General Information: Filifactor alocis, originally known as Fusobacterium alocis, was first isolated in1985 from the human gingival crevice, and has since been discovered in patients suffering from chronic periodontitis, generalized aggressive, periodontitis and endodontic infections. It has also been isolated from feline soft tissue infections. It is a fastidious, Gram-positive obligately anaerobic rod. Bacteria in periodontal pockets develop complex sessile communities that attach to the tooth surface.

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.
