Respiratory infectious diseases are the third cause of worldwide death. The nasopharynx is the portal of entry and the ecological niche of many microorganisms, of which some are pathogenic to humans, such as Neisseria meningitidis and Moraxella catarrhalis. These microbes possess several surface str Moraxella catarrhalis enters the nasopharynx and can invade numerous cell types, including bronchial epithelium, small airway epithelium, and type II alveolar pneumocytes. It can migrate to the middle ear after it enters the nasopharnyx. It forms a biofilm in vitro, but it is not clear what the function of this biofilm is Curved, straight or bean-shaped: bacilli come in many variants and are widely spread. Moraxella catarrhalis is an aerobic, Gram-negative coccobacillus - previously also referred to as Neisseria catarrhalis or Micrococcus catarrhalis. It belongs to the Moraxellaceae family and is a human mucosal pathogen Moraxella catarrhalis is a small gram-negative diplococcus that resembles the cocci of the genus Neisseria. The genus Moraxella is one of the several in the family Neisseriaceae; other medically important genera are Neisseria, Kingella, and Acinetobacter spp). Gram stain morphology of diplococcus separates Moraxella catarrhalis from other. Moraxella catarrhalis (gram reaction, cell shape, cell arrangement) it distinguishes two cells visually via the stain color (purple or pink) Why is the Gram stain considered a differential stain? G+ cells have a thick layer of PG in their cell wall, which traps the purple stain
Moraxella catarrhalis is the most commonly isolated species and is responsible for cases of acute otitis media (in children older than 3 months old), chronic and serious otitis media (fever, acute ear pain, irritability, and can escalate to sepsis and CNS infection), acute and chronic sinusitis (occasional fever, nasal or postnasal discharge. Moraxella catarrhalis is a ubiquitous human-specific bacterium commonly associated with upper and lower respiratory tract infections, including otitis media, sinusitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

SUMMARY Moraxella catarrhalis (formerly known as Branhamella catarrhalis) has emerged as a significant bacterial pathogen of humans over the past two decades. During this period, microbiological and molecular diagnostic techniques have been developed and improved for M. catarrhalis, allowing the adequate determination and taxonomic positioning of this pathogen. Over the same period, studies. Abstract. Moraxella catarrhalis is an exclusively human pathogen and is a common cause of otitis media in infants and children, causing 15%-20% of acute otitis media episodes.M. catarrhalis causes an estimated 2-4 million exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in adults annually in the United States.M. catarrhalis resembles commensal Neisseria species in culture and, thus. Microbiology. During the 1960s and early 1970s Moraxella catarrhalis was classified as Neisseria catarrhalis--a nonpathogenic inhabitant of the upper respiratory tract. In 1970, Neisseria catarrhalis was reclassified as a member of the genus Branhamella. A heightened appreciation for Branhamella catarrhalis as a true pathogen occurred during the 1970s
. Like some of the other diplococci bacteria, Moraxella catarrhalis is a Gram-negative diplococcus bacterium. It's also fastidious and non-motile and the causative agent for several infections in different parts of the body This arrangement results when two bacterial cells occur as a pair (joined together). Some of the cells in this arrangement might remain spherical while some might appear flattened, elongated, or bean-shaped. Examples: Streptococcus pneumonia, Moraxella catarrhalis, Enterococcus spp, Neisseria gonorrhea Proteobacteria / Gammaproteobacteria / Pseudomonadales / Moraxellaceae / Moraxella. Rods or cocci. The rods are often very short and plump, frequently approaching a coccus shape (1.0-1.5 × 1.5-2.5 µm); they usually occur in pairs and short chains (one plane of division). Variation in cell size, shape, and filament or chain formation is. Moraxella catarrhalis is a Gram negative diplococcus that causes ear infections in children, upper respiratory system infections, endocarditis, and meningitis ram negative coccobacillus bacteria have bacterial shapes that are in between spherical and rod shaped

If there was documented species variability, either the most common species (second choice for shape) or well known species (third choice for shape) is shown. Corynebacterium: pleomorphic bacilli Shapes of Bacteria: Bacteriology (study of bacteria) is a major part in Microbiology.The prokaryotic kingdom consists of unicellular microscopic microorganisms called bacteria.. Bacteria or a bacterium (sing.) are simple single-celled organisms that lack organized nucleus and any chlorophyll pigments but they possess a rigid cell wall.The rigidity of its cell wall determines the shape of a. Cocci bacteria definition states that a diplococcus (plural diplococci) is a coccus (round bacterium) that usually appears as two joined cells. Neisseria spp. and Moraxella catarrhalis are examples of gram-negative diplococci whereas Streptococcus pneumoniae and Enterococcus spp. are representatives of gram-positive diplococci Shape and Arrangement Morphologically, bacteria are microscopic single-celled organisms that are small in size and lack membrane bound organelles.A majority of these organisms also have a cell wall and capsule that protects the inner contents of the cell where the nucleoid, ribosome, plasmid, and cytoplasm are found. While a majority of bacteria share these characteristics, they vary in shape.
The shapes of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells are determined by their external cover (the cell walls or cell membrane). Prokaryotic cell shapes The main organisms classified as prokaryotes are the bacteria. Diplococci are paired cocci, example are: Neisseria gonorrhoceae, Moraxella catarrhalis, and. Cell shape: CB/R a: Moraxella catarrhalis is an opportunistic pathogen that often targets young children, the elderly, and immunocompromised individuals. It can cause a wide range of infections. In adults it tends to cause pneumonia, bronchitis, sinusitis, and can lead to sepsis. In young children, it can cause otitis media Moraxella catarrhalis is a Gram-negative diplococcus, which means it's a spherical-shaped bacteria that usually hangs out in pairs of two..
