Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus is a Gram-positive bacterium that can cause opportunistic infections in many animal species, including horses, cattle, swine, sheep, goats, chickens. Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus is considered a commensal and opportunistic pathogen of several warm-blooded hosts, including humans, horses, canines, and swine. It is a gram-positive, β-hemolytic coccus belonging to the Lancefield group C and can cause severe disease characterized by pneumonia, septicemia, and meningitis (1,2) Streptococcus equi subsp. zooepidemicus (S. zooepidemicus) is considered a commensal and opportunistic pathogen of several warm-blooded hosts, including humans, horses, different canines and swine. It can cause severe disease characterized by pneumonia, septicemia and meningitis (1, 2) Josh Slater, in Equine Respiratory Medicine and Surgery, 2007. Pathogenesis. Streptococcus zooepidemicus colonizes the nasopharynx (and other mucosal sites) in normal horses and is part of the respiratory tract's resident flora. The transition from commensal to disease-causing states is associated with colonization more distally along the trachea from the nasopharynx (Anzai et al 2002)
The sensitivity to hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2) of growth and hyaluronic acid (HA) production by Streptococcus zooepidemicus ATCC 39920 was studied under various conditions.In sheep blood agar‐plates, no detectable zone was observed even when the concentration of H 2 O 2 was increased to 0.15 mM. With brain heart infusion‐agar and chemically defined medium‐agar plates, a profound zone was. Streptococcus is a genus of gram-positive coccus (plural cocci) or spherical bacteria that belongs to the family Streptococcaceae, within the order Lactobacillales (lactic acid bacteria), in the phylum Firmicutes. Cell division in streptococci occurs along a single axis, so as they grow, they tend to form pairs or chains that may appear bent or twisted Streptococcus zooepidemicus. Streptococcus zooepidemicus.

Our case highlights the importance of an epidemiological history and molecular diagnostics in ascertaining insights into transmission, pathogenesis, and optimal management Hyaluronic acid is one of the biopolymers most commonly used by the pharmaceutical industry. Thus, there is an increasing number of recent works that deal with the production of microbial hyaluronic acid. Different properties and characteristics of the fermentation process have been extensively optimised; however, new carbon and protein sources obtained from by-products or cheap substrates.

S. zooepidemicus is found on mucus membranes of healthy horses, but can cause acute and chronic endometritis. Recently S. zooepidemicus was found able to reside in the endometrium for prolonged periods of time. Thus, we hypothesized that an intracellular phase may be. On March 17, 2016, Public Health—Seattle & King County in Washington was notified of two persons who received a diagnosis of Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus (S. zooepidemicus) infections.S. zooepidemicus is a zoonotic pathogen that rarely causes human illness and is usually associated with consuming unpasteurized dairy products or with direct horse contact (1) Biosynthesis of polysaccharide hyaluoronic acid (HA) by Streptococcus zooepidemicus is a carbon-intensive process. The carbon flux and factor(s) restricting HA yield were not well understood.
