Bifidobacteria

Bifidobacteria

Obligately anaerobic, non-acid-fast, non-spore-forming, non-motile, Gram-positive bacteria which are highly pleomorphic and may exhibit branching bulbs (bifids), clubs, coccoid, coryneform, Y and V forms. They are all catalase-negative and ferment lactose (except the three insect species; B. asteroides, B. indicum and B. coryneforme). Bifidobacteria are a very numerous group of bacteria in the faeces of warmblooded animals and humans.
