Brevibacterium

(brev'ē-bak-tēr'ē-um),
A bacterial genus of nonmotile, non-spore-forming, gram-positive rods found as normal human skin flora and in raw milk and on the surface of cheeses; some species, recovered from patients with septicemia and from the peritoneum of patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis, appear to be opportunistic human pathogens.

Isolation, Identification and Use of a Brevibacterium linens Strain, to Prepare Cheese
Muchos microorganismos han sido utilizados como fermentos secundarios en la elaboracion de quesos madurados, entre ellos se encuentran bacterias como Brevibacterium linens [24, 28, 31, 40].
En el presente trabajo se plantea el aislamiento e identificacion de una cepa de Brevibacterium linens y su influencia como fermento secundario, en la elaboracion de un queso de Pasta Suave y Concha Lavada.
De los resultados obtenidos en las pruebas arriba descritas y tomando en cuenta los reportes de otros investigadores, podemos suponer que la cepa Ap es Brevibacterium linens. Un resumen sobre las caracteristicas utilizadas para la identificacion de esta cepa como B.
