Neisseria is a genus of bacteria commonly present on mucosal surfaces. Several species exist, but only 2 are pathogenic to humans: N. gonorrhoeae and N. meningitidis.Neisseria species are non-motile, gram-negative diplococci most commonly isolated on modified Thayer-Martin (MTM) agar. These pathogens have many virulence factors, including fimbriae, lipooligosaccharide envelope proteins, a. Neisseria spp. The genus Neisseria consists of gram-negative, aerobic cocci. Two Neisseria species are pathogenic for humans Neisseria gonorrhoeae (commonly called gonococcus), the causal agent of gonorrhea and Neisseria meningitidis (commonly called meningococcus), a frequent cause of meningitis A brief review of the Neisseria spp. based on their carbohydrate utilization patterns.

Like other Neisseria spp., N. flava is an aerobic β-proteobacteria . The organism inhabits the upper respiratory tract of human  . There is no extensive study of N. flava and its host range, however, the organism has been identified in the oropharyngeal of rhesus macaques, which suggests that this species is not host. Neisseria is the only pathogenic gram negative cocci (precisely diplococci). Two species of Neisseria causes disease in humans; Neisseria meningitidis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae.. Human beings are only known hosts of N.gonorrhoeae. Neisseria gonorrhoeae (often called gonococcus) causes gonorrhoea, the second most common sexually transmitted disease (STDs) of worldwide importance (Chlamydial.

Nesseria is non-spore-forming, capable of moving using twitching motility, and an obligate aerobe (requires oxygen to grow). Of the 11 species of Neisseria that colonize humans, only two are pathogens Most Neisseria species are gram-negative cocci or diplococci; currently, N. elongata is the only species of human origin with a bacillary morphology. Here, we report isolation and characterization of eight strains of another bacillary Neisseria species from human infections. The organisms caused or contributed to either oral cavity-related or respiratory tract infections, and two strains were.

Other Neisseria spp. exist as normal inhabitants of the upper respiratory tract.Referred to as commensals,. saprophytes, or nonpathogens, these species are occasionally isolated from the genital tract.The commensal. Neisseria spp. rarely cause disease, but they have sporadically been implicated in meningitis, endocarditis, prosthetic valve infections. The only organisms that are Gram-negative diplococcus are Neisseria spp. and Moraxella catarrhalis. M. catarrhalis is a common cause of acute rhinosinusitis, but isn't known to cause major shock syndromes. Of the Neisseria spp., the two that are board relavent are: Neisseria gonorrheae and Neisseria meningitidis A fragment of chromosomal DNA encoding the lgtE gene of Neisseria gonorrhoeae strain F62 was amplified by PCR and cloned into the expression vector pET15b. Functional LgtE was purified and its biochemical properties were determined. The purified enzyme was maximally active in buffer containing manganese; minimal activity was obtained in buffer containing other divalent cations

Iron acquisition in vitro was studied in an agar diffusion assay employing the iron-binding protein conalbumin. The ability of various iron compounds to alter the growth-inhibitory effect of conalbumin was investigated
Neisseria meningitidis (the meningococcus) is a fastidious Gram-negative diplococcus that colonizes and invades only man. In genetic terms, its closest relative is the gonococcus, Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The entire genetic sequences of a serogroup A and a serogroup B meningococcus have been published The genus Neisseria currently consists of 28 species, most of which are commensals of mucous membranes of humans and animals. The two species most commonly associated with disease are Neisseria meningitidis and N. gonorrhoeae. N. meningitidis, also termed meningococcus, is spread by large-droplet oropharyngeal secretions and rarely causes invasive meningococcal disease (IMD), in the form of.
Neisseria sicca/subflava are sacharolytic species of the family Neisseriaceae that are commensal inhabitants of the human oropharynx. 1 These organisms have been occasionally reported as the cause of significant human infections in normal and immunocompromised patients. In this report, we describe an immunosuppressed pediatric patient who developed N. sicca/subflava bacteremia manifested by. Neisseria in 1972 (13). Since cryptic plasmids had no mea-surablephenotype,theyattractedlittle attention.

Neisseria spp. Potently Induce HIV-1 LTR Expression in a TLR5-Independent Manner. Because a wide variety of bacteria-derived components have the potential to elicit an innate response in mammalian cells, we first tested a spectrum of prototypical MAMPs for their ability to induce the HIV-1 LTR in the Jurkat 1G5 reporter cell line Neisseria spp. possess four genogroups of filamentous prophages, termed Nf1 to 4. A filamentous bacteriophage from the Nf1 genogroup termed meningococcal disease-associated phage (MDA φ) is associated with clonal complexes of Neisseria meningitidis that cause invasive meningococcal disease
Indeed, comparative genomics of commensal Neisseria spp. has revealed that these organisms share a large repertoire of virulence-associated alleles with meningococci and gonococci and also with other bacterial genera [130,389]. Moreover, amongst the commensal organisms, the largest set of virulence-associated alleles is found in N. lactamica Biochemical Test and Identification of Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
