RANK: Genus

TAXONOMY: cellular organisms -> Bacteria -> Fusobacteria -> Fusobacteriia -> Fusobacteriales -> Fusobacteriaceae -> Fusobacterium

OVERVIEW:

Nonsporeforming rods that are Gram-stain-negative and obligately anaerobic. Metabolize peptone or carbohydrates in PY-glucose to produce butyrate, often with acetate and lower levels of lactate, propionate, succinate, and formate. DNA G+C content (mol%): 26–34.Type species: Fusobacterium nucleatum

This genus contains microbial species that can reside in the human gastrointestinal tract. [PMC 4262072]
