|Description:||Under the low-power magnification of 10X of a digital Keyence scope , this photograph depicts the colonial growth displayed by Gram-negative Oligella ureolytica bacteria, which were cultured on Thayer-Martin (TM) agar medium, for a 24 hour time period, at a temperature of 37°C.|
Oligella ureolytica was previously referred to as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) group IVe, and is only rarely a human pathogen. O. ureolytica is a motile bacterium, achieving its motility by way of peritrichous flagella, which project from its cell wall in all directions. This organism is a commensal bacterium, normally found in the human urethra, and urinary tract.
