Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Mucoid strains of Moraxella nonliquefaciens were recovered from the sputa of three indigenous Australians with chronic lung disease. These atypical strains failed to reduce nitrate, and one strain produced beta-lactamase. While the mucoid phenotype of M. nonliquefaciens has rarely been reported, the mucoid nitrate-negative biovar has never been previously reported.
