TaxonomyTAX: 388919
    LineageBacteria; Firmicutes; Bacilli; Lactobacillales; Streptococcaceae; Streptococcus
Data sourceRefSeq (Assembly: GCF_000014205.1)
BioProject: 58381
KeywordsHuman pathogen
DiseaseH00334 Bacterial endocarditis
H01443 Viridans group streptococcal infection
CommentProduces alpha-hemolysis on blood agar, a characteristic linked to the ability of viridans streptococci to oxidize hemoglobin in erythrocytes by secretion of H2O2.
Possesses a remarkable abundance of putative surface proteins, which may permit it to be a primary colonizer of the oral cavity and agent of streptococcal endocarditis and infection in neutropenic patients.
Isolated from human dental plaque.
