Selenomonas

(sĕ-lē'nō-mō'nas),
A genus of bacteria of uncertain taxonomic affiliation, containing curved to crescentic or helical, gram-negative, strictly anaerobic rods that are motile with an active tumbling motion. Several flagella are present in a tuft, often near the center of the concave side. The type species, Selenomonas sputigena, is found in the human buccal cavity.
[G. selēnē, moon, + monas, single (unit)]

(sĕ-lē'nō-mō'nas)
A genus of bacteria found in the human oral vestibule.

Estos compuestos podrian ser utilizados como sustrato por microorganismos ruminales tales como: Megasphaera elsdenii, Prevotella ruminicola, Selenomonas ruminantium, Dasytricha ruminantium y Entodinium caudatum (Coleman 1986), lo cual se traduciria en una mayor degradacion ruminal del almidon dietario.
When lactic acid is secondarily fermented in the rumen by lactate-utilizing bacteria such as Megasphaera elsdenii, Selenomonas ruminantium, Fusobacterium necrophorum, and Veillonellaparvula, propionate is generally produced [52,53].
The lack of the effects of SOTE on VFA profile can be caused by the resistance of, inter alia, propionate-producing bacteria, such as Selenomonas ruminantium, to the analyzed biologically active compounds.
Bacteria of the genera Bacteroides, Prevotella, Ruminobacter, Fibrobacter, Methanobrevibacter, Methanomicrobium and Clostridium (spores) are rod-shaped; Butyrovibrio, Selenomonas and Lachnospira are curved rod bacteria; cocci indicate the presence of Ruminococcus, Streptococcus and Megasphaera.
micros), que tienen la capacidad de adherirse a las celulas epiteliales; se encuentran ademas de los anteriores, anaerobios estrictos como, Fusubacterium nucleatum, Selenomonas noxia y Centipeda periodontii, anaerobios facultativos, como Campylobacter, Eikenella corrodens y Haemophilus.
In contrast, other species, such as Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Selenomonas noxia showed a trend to be detected in higher counts in genotype-positive and allele 2 carrier individuals.
La poblacion bacteriana se estudio utilizando metodos de hibridizacion de ADN "checker board" para identificar las especies; los resultados no mostraron diferencias significativas entre los brackets ceramicos y metalicos con respecto al conteo de las bacterias cariogenicas como Estreptococos Mutans y Lactobacilos acidofilos, pero se observaron altos conteos de Treponema denticola, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Estreptococos Vincentii, Estreptococcus anginosus, y Eubacterium nodatum en los brackets metalicos, mientras que otras bacterias como Eikenella corrodens, Campylobacter showae, y Selenomonas noxia presentaron altos niveles en brackets ceramicos (3).
