  Proteus vulgaris
Proteus OX19 has the same o-polysaccharides as the pathogenic bacteria Rickettsia prowazekii.
There, infection by Proteus OX19, a non-pathogenic bacteria, causes the same immune response as infection by Rickettsia, a highly pathogenic and contagious bacteria that causes typhus.

Proteus species are most commonly found in the human intestinal tract as part of normal human intestinal flora, along with Escherichia coli and Klebsiella species, of which E coli is the predominant resident.
Proteus vulgaris and Proteus penneri are easily isolated from individuals in long-term care facilities and hospitals and from patients with underlying diseases or compromised immune systems.

  Proteus vulgaris   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
It covers the pathogenic bacterium Proteus vulgaris and a method for rapid identification of bacteria from clinical specimens.
The genus Proteus is classified in the enteric bacteria, together with Escherichia coli, Salmonella, Shigella, Enterobacter and Serratia.
Swarming gives rise to a very thin film of bacteria on the agar surface, but swarming periods are interspersed with periods when the cells stop and undergo a cycle of growth and division so that the colony has a distinct zonation, clearly seen in Fig.

 Whatever dissolves your crystals
In this experiment, the unknown was determined to be Proteus vulgaris.
vulgaris is a chemoheterotroph, which means it uses carbon sources like glucose for energy and carbon (1); as a chemoheterotroph, it ferments glucose but not lactose or mannitol (2).
However, because it is a facultative anaerobe, the glucose fermentation only occurs in anaerobic conditions; if placed in non-ideal, aerobic conditions, the microbe will use a variety of organic molecules to survive (8).

 LECTURE 35   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Urease production by all species of Proteus and Morganella and some species of Providencia is an exclusive property within the Enterobacteriaceae.
Although each of the three genera cause essentially the same types of infections, namely, infections of the urinary tract, blood stream and soft tissues, Proteus species are more frequently isolated.
Proteus species are highly motile and exhibit swarming (confluent growth) on ordinary agar plates making isolation of mixed cultures difficult.

During the first trial, the flasks of Proteus vulgaris and Proteus mirablis, failed to show turbidity after 16hrs of stationary incubation at 30(C. Therefore, the results from the first trial reflect use of only Eschirechia coli (A+) and Enterobacter as donors.
This time only the Proteus vulgaris and Proteus mirablis grew, and 24hrs after attempted recombination the colonies appeared only on 10-4 Streptomyocin plates.
The Proteus mirablis grew 3 colonies, and the Proteus vulgaris grew 6 colonies.
