TAXONOMY: Bacteria -> Terrabacteria group -> Firmicutes -> Bacilli -> Lactobacillales -> Carnobacteriaceae -> Granulicatella
Cocci that occur as single cells, in pairs, or in short chains. Gram-stain-positive. Nonmotile. Nonsporeforming. Facultatively anaerobic. Catalase- and oxidase-negative. Acid but not gas is produced from glucose. No growth at 10 or 45 °C. Pyrrolidonyl arylamidase and leucine arylamidase are produced. Alkaline phosphatase, α-galactosidase, β-galactosidase, and urease are not produced. Acetoin is not produced. Found as part of the normal oral flora of the human pharynx and the human urogenital and intestinal tracts.
DNA G+C content (mol%): 36–37.5.
Type species: Granulicatella adiacens
