Citrobacter freundii

Wikipedia Abstract

Citrobacter freundii is a species of facultative anaerobic gram-negative bacteria of the Enterobacteriaceae family. The bacteria are long bacterial rods with a typical length of 1–5 μm. Most C. freundii cells generally have several flagella used for locomotion, but some do not and are non-motile. C. freundii is a soil organism, but can also be found in water, sewage, food and in the intestinal tracts of animals and humans. The Citrobacter genus was discovered in 1932 by Werkman and Gillen. Cultures of C. freundii were isolated and identified in the same year from soil extracts.
