Kluyvera

Kluyvera

 [kli´ver-ah]
a genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that are occasional opportunistic pathogens and cause respiratory and urinary infections.

Kluyvera

(klū'ē-ver'ă),
Genus in family Enterobacteriaceae; organisms are motile, lactose fermenting, and differentiated from other genera by specific phenotypic profiles and DNA-DNA hybridization parameters; some species have been associated with human infection; the type species is Kluyvera ascorbata.

Kluyvera

(klī′vĕr-ă)
A genus of bacteria in the family Enterobacteriaceae whose members are all motile, gram-negative rods.

The filed and blackened teeth behind the loose lips added the last touch of hideousness to this terrible countenance.
Several genera of the family Enterobacteriaceae were obtained (Citrobacter, Enterobacter, Escherichia, Klebsiella, Kluyvera, Morganella, Proteus, Providencia and Salmonella) and a morphologically similar genus of Gram-negative bacterium (Aeromonas).
A total of 12 bacterial species have been isolated and added to this thesaurus: Citrobacter werkmanii, Kluyvera cryocrescens, Lactobacillus brevis, Streptococcus pluranimalium, Paenibacillus peoriae, Rhodotorula minuta, Cronobacter malonaticus, Paenibacillus durus, Rhodotorula mucilaginosa, Rhizobium radiobacter, Buttiauxella agrestis, and Plesiomonas shigelloides.
coli isolates exhibiting the remaining four reaction types were identified to be Enterobacter asburiae (E19), Kluyvera georgiana (E3), Pantoea agglomerans (E 30) and Phytobacter diazotrophicus (2ss1B3) all belonginng to the Enterobacteriaceae family and their 16S rRNA sequences were submitted in the GenBank with accession numbers KT804411, KT804412, KT804413 and KU240006 respectively.
Antagonistic activity in liquid cultures was determined by the method of diffusion into agar of the test cultures isolated from milk and flush from the udder skin surface: Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus intermedium, Staphylococcus hyicus, Cedecia species, Esherichia coli, Kluyvera ascorbata, Klebsiella oxytoca, Enterobacter intermedius, and Serratia liquefaeciens.
The analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequence of fifteen isolates revealed the presence of other bacterial genera such as Staphylococcus, Serratia, Microbacterium, Kluyvera, Arthrobacter, Stenotrophomonas, Exiguobacterium, Micrococcus, Klebsiella, Massilia, Erwinia, Brevibacterium halotolerans, and Uncultured bacterium (table 1).
Asi mismo, es muy importante la correlacion clinica ante el aislamiento de Cedecea, ya que en algunos casos no ha sido claro su papel etiologico y es clasificada dentro de los nuevos generos de enterobacterias oportunistas, junto a cepas como Tatumella, Rahnella, Kluyvera y Ewingella, y es fundamental definir un manejo antibiotico adecuado por su alto perfil de resistencia a multiples antibioticos.
Serratia, Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Kluyvera, Providencia, and Stenotrophomponas have been isolated from nematocerous dipterans (Luz-Alves et al.
Kluyvera is a relatively newly described member of the Enterobacteriaceae family that rarely causes infections in humans.
Other ubiquitous or cosmopolitan species found are the bacteria Kluyvera sp.
Transfer of resistance genes may occur through horizontal gene transfer (HGT) from commensal bacteria to opportunistic pathogens, as previously described CTX-M extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) resistance genes, which originate from Kluyvera sp.
