Part Descriptions

LP30923-4   Yersinia pestis
Yersinia pestis is a Gram-negative bacterium belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae. The infectious agent of bubonic plague, it can also cause pneumonic and septicemic plague. All three forms have been responsible for high mortality rates in epidemics throughout human history, for example, the Great Plague and the Black Death, the latter of which accounted for the death of approximately one third of the European population in 1347 to 1353. The role of Y. pestis in the Black Death is debated among historians; some have suggested that the Black Death spread far too rapidly to be caused by Y. pestis. DNA from Y. pestis has been found in the teeth of those who died from the Black Death, however, and medieval corpses who died from other causes did not test positive for Y. pestis. , This suggests that Y. pestis was, at the very least, a contributing factor in some (though possibly not all of) the European plagues.
