Fusobacterium periodonticum

RANK: Species

TAXONOMY: Bacteria -> Fusobacteria -> Fusobacteriia -> Fusobacteriales -> Fusobacteriaceae -> Fusobacterium -> Fusobacterium periodonticum


Note: The taxonomy and phylogeny of the Fusobacterium nucleatum subspecies and related Fusobacterium periodontium and Fusobacterium naviforme is not well defined. The 16S rRNA sequence information is probably not reliable for putting strains into valid Fusobacterium nucleatum subspecies.Identified as a constituent of the oral microbiome by Human Oral Microbiome Database.

This species has been identified as a resident in the human gastrointestinal tract based on the phylogenetic framework of its small subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences.[PMC 4262072]
