Arcanobacterium

(ar-kā'nō-bac-tēr'ē-um),
A genus of nonmotile, facultatively anaerobic bacteria containing gram-positive slender irregular rods, sometimes showing clubbed ends that may be in "V" formation with no filaments. These microorganisms are obligate parasites of the pharynx in farm animals and humans. AArcanobacterium haemolyticum occasionally causes lesions of the pharynx or skin.

(ahr-kā'nō-bak-tēr'ē-ŭm)
A genus of nonmotile, facultatively anaerobic bacteria containing gram-positive slender irregular rods, sometimes showing clubbed ends. These organisms are obligate parasites of the pharynx in farm animals and humans, occasionally causing lesions on the pharynx or skin. The type species is A. haemolyticum.

The species was originally known as Corynebacterium pyogenes and Actinomyces pyogenes and then as Arcanobacterium pyogenes. Based on the 16S rRNA signature nucleotide comparisons and menaquinone and phospholipid compositions, the genus was divided into Arcanobacterium and Trueperella gen.
