Ontology: Aeromonas hydrophila (C0085491)

Definition (NCI) A species of aerobic or anaerobic, Gram negative, rod shaped bacteria assigned to the phylum Proteobacteria. This bacteria is motile by polar flagella, oxidase positive, produces Aerolysin Cytotoxic Enterotoxin, hydrolyzes esculin and is beta hemolytic. A. hydrophila is found in freshwater and marine environments and is pathogenic to fish, amphibians, and mammals.
Definition (NCI_CDISC) Any bacterial organism that can be assigned to the species Aeromonas hydrophila.
