Actinobacillus

 [ak″tĭ-no-bah-sil´us]
a genus of gram-negative, nonmotile, coccoid or rod-shaped bacteria that are part of the normal microflora of mammals. The organisms are capable of infecting cattle and other domestic animals and, rarely, are associated with human infection; A. ligniere´sii is the causative agent of actinobacillosis.

Actinobacillus

(ak'tin-ō-bă-sil'lŭs),
A genus of small, nonmotile, non-spore-forming, aerobic, facultatively anaerobic bacteria containing gram-negative rods interspersed with coccal elements. The metabolism of these bacteria is fermentative. They are pathogenic to animals. The type species is Actinobacillus lignieresii.
[actino- + L. bacillus, a little rod]

Actinobacillus

/Ac·ti·no·bac·il·lus/ (-bah-sil´us) a genus of potentially pathogenic schizomycetes (family Pasteurellaceae), causing granulomatous lesions.

Actinobacillus

[ak′tinōbasil′əs]
a genus of small, gram-negative bacillus, with members that are pathogenic for humans and other animals. The species Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans is the cause of actinomycosis in humans.

(ak'tin-ō-bă-sil'ŭs)
A genus of nonmotile, non-spore-forming, aerobic, facultatively anaerobic bacteria (family Brucellaceae) containing gram-negative rods interspersed with coccal elements. The metabolism of these bacteria is fermentative. They are pathogenic to animals. The type species is A. lignieresii.
