Aeromonas

 [a″er-o-mo´nas]
a genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria. A. hydro´phila causes cellulitis, wound infections, diarrhea, septicemia, and urinary tract infections. A. ca´viae and A. so´bia are found in fresh water and sewage and on fish, and cause gastroenteritis and wound infections in humans.

Aeromonas

(ār-ō-mō'năs),
A genus of gram-negative, oxidase-positive, aerobic, facultatively anaerobic bacteria (family Vibrionaceae) containing rod-shaped to coccoid cells; motile cells ordinarily possess a single, polar flagellum; some species are nonmotile. The metabolism of these organisms is both respiratory and fermentative; nutritional requirements are not stringent. These bacteria are found in water and sewage; some are pathogenic to freshwater and marine animals, and to humans. Effects in humans include cellulitis; wound infections; acute diarrhea (especially caused by Aeromonas sobria); septicemia; urinary tract infection; hepatobiliary, meningeal, and auricular infections; and endocarditis. The type species is Aeromonas hydrophila.

Aeromonas

A genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, non-spore-forming bacilli, which have been isolated from various foods, including dairy products, meats and vegetables; Aeromonas spp may contaminate skin wounds and cause intestinal and extra-intestinal infections, including meningitis and sepsis in immunocompromised hosts.

Aer·o·mo·nas

(ār-ō-mō'năs)
A genus of aerobic, facultatively anaerobic bacteria (family Aeromondaccae) containing gram-negative, rod-shaped coccoid cells that occur singly or in pairs or in clumps of chains; motile cells ordinarily possess a single, polar flagellum; some species are nonmotile. The metabolism of these organisms is both respiratory and fermentative. These bacteria are found in water and sewage; some are pathogenic to fresh water and marine animals. The type species is A. hydrophila.

Aer·o·mo·nas

(ār-ō-mō'năs)
Genus of water-borne bacteria also found in sewage.

As study results reflects that more than 50% isolates were Salmonella while Aeromonas were very less prevalent which is only 2.5%, Actually Aeromonas has a number of virulence factors and isolated as a single enteropathogen from 80% diarrheal and 20% asymptomatic cases 17 so may be this was the reason of less prevalence of Aeromonas.
The results suggest that MetaChi18A is moderately thermophilic, as it would be expected since it is similar to Aeromonas chitinases.
