Streptococcus is a genus of Gram-positive coccus (plural cocci) or spherical bacteria that belongs to the family Streptococcaceae, within the order Lactobacillales (lactic acid bacteria), in the phylum Firmicutes. Cell division in streptococci occurs along a single axis, so as they grow, they tend to form pairs or chains that may appear bent or twisted.. (Contrast with that of staphylococci Class: Bacilli. Noninfectious respiratory disease is a common, performance-limiting condition that affects adult horses of various ages. Inflammatory airway disease is characterized by excessive tracheal mucus, airway hyperreactivity, and poor exercise performance in young horses. The etiology is unclear, but viral respiratory infection (EHV-2), allergy, and environmental factors may play a role in the.
Detection and typing of bovine mastitis pathogens are currently limited by time-consuming and culture-based techniques. In this work, a novel genus-specific DNA marker for Streptococcus and species-specific DNA markers for the prevalent mastitis pathogens Streptococcus agalactiae and Streptococcus uberis were designed and assessed. In order to enable further discrimination of these Cited by: Start studying Equine upper respiratory tract infections.

Notes from the Field. Fatal Infection Associated with Equine Exposure — King County, Washington, Streptococcus equinus is a Gram-positive, nonhemolytic, nonpathogenic, lactic acid bacterium of the genus Streptococcus.
It is the principal Streptococcus found in the alimentary canal of a horse, and makes up the majority of the bacterial flora in horse feces. equinus is seldom found in humans.
Equivalence with Streptococcus bovis has been : Bacilli. Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus (S. zooepidemicus) is a zoonotic pathogen for persons in contact with horses, S. zooepidemicus is an opportunistic pathogen, but human infections associated with S.

Molecular typing methods showed that human and equine isolates were identical or closely related. These results emphasize that S. zooepidemicus transmitted from horses can lead to severe infections in humans. As leisure and professional equine sports continue to grow, this infection should be recognized as an emerging by: Streptococcus agalactiae is an emerging pathogen of nonpregnant human adults worldwide and a reemerging pathogen of dairy cattle in parts of Europe.
To learn more about interspecies transmission of this bacterium, we compared contemporaneously collected isolates from humans and cattle in Finland and Sweden.

Although members of the normal flora, they are considered the most important β-hemolytic streptococci involved in lesions in pigs, and these agents were judged to be of etiologic significance in autopsy reports.
These streptococci are common in nasal and throat. Streptococcus pyogenes is a rare agent of mastitis in cattle and lymphangitis in foals but is an important human pathogen causing serious respiratory and soft tissue infections. These include necrotizing fasciitis and toxic shock-like syndrome.

Clinical and epidemiological investigation of chronic upper respiratory diseases caused by beta-haemolytic streptococci in horses.
Other less common, largely sporadic, streptococcal infections are summarized as follows. Sporadic infections occasionally are caused by Streptococcus equisimilis. This beta-hemolytic streptococcus and a few others sometimes cause arthritis, septicemia or meningitis in young pigs, complicate other disease processes, or may contribute to cases of.
Bacterial infections typically cause a fever and lethargy. Cleanliness practices around the barn are key to keeping bacteria from spreading.
It is a good idea for each horse to have their own supplies and grooming tools to prevent spreading germs in stables where many horses from different owners are living together.

Virulence of 10 human and 10 bovine isolates (5 type II and 5 type III of each origin) of group B streptococci (GBS) was measured in two experimental mouse models.
In the first model, mice were intraperitoneally (i.p.) infected, and the 50% lethal doses (LD50) were significantly lower for human isolates than for bovine isolates. In the second model, abortion and lethality were recorded for Author: Bernard Poutrel, Pascal Rainard, Yannick Lautrou.

equi (S. equi) is the causative agent of the highly contagious upper respiratory disease “strangles” in. Equine Herpes Virus.
This is a highly contagious equine virus that affects horses of all ages. Better known as the Equine Rhinopneumonitis the disease is caused by the equine herpes virus type-1 (EHV-1).
The Equine Herpes Virus causes problems with the respiratory and neurological system and may even lead to abortions in pregnant mares. Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus (S.
zooepidemicus) is a [beta]-hemolytic, Lancefield group C streptococcal bacterium. S. zooepidemicus is considered an opportunistic commensal in horses (), but it may also cause infections in other domestic animals such as cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, dogs, and cats ().
