Description of Comamonas

provided by BioPedia
Gram-negative, aerobic, nonpigmented, rod-shaped bacteria, which are motile by means of at least one polar tuft of flagella and have a nonfermentative chemoorganotrophic metabolism. They are quite ubiquitous in the environment and have been isolated from soil, mud and water. Comamonas strains have also been isolated from denitrifying activated sludge as well as from various clinical samples and from the hospital environment, but they are not seen as pathogenic to healthy humans.
