Abstract

Rod-shaped or pleomorphic cells that stain Gram-negative. Nonmotile. Nonsporeforming. Includes free-living micro-organisms in soil and symbionts of nematodes. Free-living organisms are aerobic and saccharolytic and use predominantly mono-, di-, and polysaccharides and their derivatives. Menaquinones are the only respiratory quinones detected, primarily MK-10 and MK-11.
