Proteus Mirabilis Unknown Report

Proteus mirabilis The genus Proteus, according to Bergey’s Manual of Determinative Bacteriology, is a group of straight rod Gram negative bacteria around 0.4-0.8 μm in diameter and 1-3 μm in length. In the microscopic test done, it was seen that the unknown culture contained rods that are on the shorter side, thus was identified as bacteria that appear to be coccobacilli. Because of the presence of peritrichous flagella, species included this genus are motile and most strains swarm in periodic...

Proteus Mirabilis

Proteus Mirabilis Proteus mirabilis is part of the Enterobacteriaceae family. It is a small gram-negative Rod, and a facultative anaerobe, lastly, it is a Prokaryote. Furthermore, Proteus mirabilis is characterized by its swarming motility, its ability to ferment maltose, and its inability to ferment lactose. P. mirabilis has the ability to elongate itself and secrete a polysaccharide when in contact with solid surfaces, making it extremely motile on items such as medical equipment (catheters)...
