(redirected from Pseudomonas gladioli)

Burkholderia gladioli

An aerobic Pseudomonas-like gram-negative bacterium found in the environment—e.g., plants, fungi—which may colonise the respiratory tract of patients with cystic fibrosis, and can be mistaken for Burkholderia cepacia complex bacteria.

Clinical findings
B gladioli is an opportunistic infection which causes severe pneumonia in patients with cystic fibrosis, chronic granulomatous disease and lung transplants.

Burkholderia gladioli

A species of multiply drug-resistant bacteria that may cause ocular infections, pneumonia (esp. in patients with cystic fibrosis), skin abscesses, and other infections.

Cadwallader et al, [8] obtained a d-limonene-degrading Pseudomonas gladioli strain by selective enrichment medium, and observed the transient accumulation of perillic acid (probably as a pathway intermediate), and the formation of [alpha]-terpineol and an unidentified compound as dead-end products.
Limonene can be transformed into [alpha]-terpineol by different bacterial strains, such as: Pseudomonas gladioli [8,38], Escherichia coli, [39] and Sphingobium spp.
