neisseria bacilliformis sp. nov. isolated from human infections.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 isolated from blood cultures. the 16s rrna gene sequences of these organisms, being homogenous or nearly ...200616455901
endocarditis due to neisseria bacilliformis in a patient with a bicuspid aortic valve.we report a case of endocarditis due to the rod-shaped neisseria species neisseria bacilliformis. the phenotypic characterization of this recently characterized bacteria is difficult, and the identification requires the sequencing of the 16s rrna gene. the resolution of the disease was complete after appropriate antibiotic therapy, and surgery was not required.200919386832
the class iii ribonucleotide reductase from neisseria bacilliformis can utilize thioredoxin as a reductant.the class iii anaerobic ribonucleotide reductases (rnrs) studied to date couple the reduction of ribonucleotides to deoxynucleotides with the oxidation of formate to co2. here we report the cloning and heterologous expression of the neisseria bacilliformis class iii rnr and show that it can catalyze nucleotide reduction using the ubiquitous thioredoxin/thioredoxin reductase/nadph system. we present a structural model based on a crystal structure of the homologous thermotoga maritima class iii rn ...201425157154
a rare case of neisseria bacilliformis native valve endocarditis.neisseria bacilliformis has most often been associated with infections of the oral cavity and the respiratory tract. we report a case of n. bacilliformis mitral valve endocarditis in a previously healthy adult which required valve replacement, thus confirming the opportunistic nature and pathogenic potential of this novel organism.201222673965
