Part Description

LP30498-7   Corynebacterium sp
Corynebacteria are catalase producing, gram positive bacilli or coccobacilli. In the past, the non-diphtherial corynebacteria were believed to be contaminants in cultures, but now are recognized as the cause of significant disease, especially as opportunistic infections in patients who are immunocompromised, who have prosthetic devices, or who spend extended periods of time in nursing homes or hospitals. The most significant species of Corynebacterium is C diphtheria which is the bacteria that causes diphtheria. Diphtheria has been eradicated from most developed countries due to the implementation of universal vaccination against the primary virulence factor of diphtheria which is the diphtheria toxin (DT). There are 88 species of Corynebacterium, 53 of which cause occasional or extremely rare disease in humans or are transmitted by zoonotic exposure. The remaining species have only been found in animals, birds, the environment, water, food, or synthetic material. They have numerous metabolic properties including being fermentative, oxidative, assimilative, or nonreactive. Corynebacterium can be identified by biochemical strips that compare chemical reactions to the chemical reactions of known organisms. Other methods used to identify Corynebacterium include using gene sequencing and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight (MALDI-TOF).[PMID:22837327] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
