11] The main aetiologic agent of Cutaneous tuberculosis is Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) that belongs to the class Schizomycetes, order Actinomycetales
, family Mycobacteriaceae and genus Mycobacterium.
Actinobacteria consisted primarily of the Class Actinobacteria (>70% within this phylum; data not shown) and the Order Actinomycetales
(>99% within the Class Actinobacteria; data not shown).
Streptomyces, gram -positive bacteria in the order Actinomycetales
are able to produce extracellular secretions with different properties such as antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, nematicidal, antitumor, and enzyme inhibitory activities (7,8).
The bacteria belong to the order Actinomycetales
, family Nocardiacea and the main species that affect domestic animals are N.
Dermatophilosis (also known as streptothrichosis, or in sheep as 'lumpy wool disease') is caused by bacterium Dermatophilus congolensis, the type species of genus Dermatophilus, which is a member of the order Actinomycetales
(Stewart, 1972 and Msami et al.
The two groups are the eumyces, or true fungi, and the actinomyces, filamentous bacteria of the order Actinomycetales
The order Actinomycetales
includes the families Mycobacteriaceae and Nocardiaceae, among others.
are aerobic, gram-positive bacteria of the order Actinomycetales
, known for their ability to produce antimicrobial molecules such as streptomycin.
