LP14389-8   Burkholderia pseudomallei
Burkholderia pseudomallei (previously Pseudomonas pseudomallei, Malleomyces pseudomallei, Pfeiferella pseudomallei, Bacillus whitmori) aka Whitmore's bacillus is a Gram-negative, bipolar, aerobic, motile rod-shaped bacterium. A human and animal pathogen, B. pseudomallei causes melioidosis. B. pseudomallei measures 2-5 um in length and 0.4-0.8 um in diameter and are capable self-propulsion using flagellae. Endemic in soil and water of South-East Asia and North Australia, the two most important serovars clinically are (Type Iara+ and Type IIara-), corresponding to the above-mentioned geographic locations. Both serovars are roughly equal in pathogenicity and are distinguished by their ability to metabolize L-arabinose. The bacteria can grow in a number artficial nutrient environments, especially betaine - and arginine -containing. In vitro , optimal proliferation temperature is reported around 40°C in pH -neutral or slightly acidic environments (pH 6.8-7.0).
