Comment
Anaerobic, nonsporulating, nonmotile, chemoorganotrophic and mesophilic coccus.
Thrives mainly by glutamate fermentation via the 2-hydroxyglutarate pathway in the intestinal tract of homeothermic animals, utilizing glutamate, citrate, and trans-aconitate as sole energy sources, in the presence of sodium.
Ammonia, acetate, butyrate, and hydrogen are the main end products of growth.
Isolated from a pig alimentary tract.
