Lineage: Bacteria[8876]; Actinobacteria[1378]; Actinobacteria[1304]; Propionibacteriales[43]; Propionibacteriaceae[20]; Propionibacterium[12]; Propionibacterium acnes[1]
Propionibacterium acnes. This bacterium is the most common gram-positive, non-spore forming, anaerobic rod encountered in clinical specimens. The causative agent of acne, it typically grows as an obligate anaerobe. Some strains are aerotolerant, but still show better growth as an anaerobe. It has the ability to produce propionic acid, More...
