Streptococcus

Examples:
Streptococcus faecalis and faecium (Enterococci): Intestinal bacteria, but lives also on plants. Indicator of insufficient hygiene (together with E. coli indicates presence of fecal material).
Streptococcus pyogenes: Systemic in respiratory tract, cause of infectious diseases (e.g. scarlet fever).
Streptococcus salivarius subsp. thermophilus: For yogurt production (together with Lactobacillus bulgaricus).

Streptococci are grouped by tree types of hemolysis (alpha, beta, gamma). This reaction can be seen on blood agar plates.

Alpha-Hemolytic Streptococci
Alpha hemolysis means the red blood cells are intact, but the hemoglobin is converted to biliverdin. This causes a greening of the blood agar plate around the colonies.

- Pneumococci (e.g. S. pneumoniae)
- Viridans and Others (e.g. S. mutans, S. viridans, Streptococcus salivarius, S. salivarius subsp. thermophilus)

Beta-Hemolytic Streptococci
Beta hemolysis is a true hemolysis of erythrocyte by the enzyme hemolysin. Clear zones will appear around the colonies on the blood agar plate.
Beta-Hemolytic streptococci are subdivided into serological groups by antibodies that recognize surface carbohydrate antigens (e.g. group A,B,C,D).
- Group A (e.g. S. pyogenes, S. dysgalactiae subsp. equisimilis, S. anginosus strains)
- Group B (e.g. S. agalactiae)
- Group C (e.g. S. equi, S. zooepidemicus:)
- Group D (Enterococci: S. bovis and S. suis)

Non-Hemolytic or Gamma-Hemolytic Streptococci

Gamma hemolysis is a misnomer, there is actually no hemolysis. Non-hemolytic or gamma-hemolytic streptococci rarely cause disease.
