Description:This photograph depicts the colonial morphology displayed by Gram-negative, Bordetella bronchiseptica bacteria, which was grown on a medium of sheep’s blood agar (SBA), for a 24 hour time period, at a temperature of 37°C. See PHIL 12395 and 12396 for views of these bacterial colonies after 48 hours of growth.
As a whole, members of the genus Bordetella are known human and animal pathogens. Though an uncommon pathogen in the case of humans, B. bronchiseptica does cause illnesses in various animal populations including dogs (tracheobronchitis), pigs (atrophic rhinitis), rabbits (snuffles), and cats (various respiratory diseases).
