Animal hosts of F tularensis holarctica are lagomorphs, beaver, muskrat, voles, and sheep. Ticks, flies, fleas, and exposure to contaminated water sources are all associated with transmission of this subspecies, which has also been found to persist naturally in a water-associated amoeba.

In Europe, two major basal clades of F. tularensis subsp. holarctica exist, with a distinct geographical distribution. Basal clade B.6 is primarily found in Western Europe, while basal clade B.12 occurs predominantly in the central and eastern parts of Europe.

This case demonstrates the well-recognized features of F. tularensis ssp. holarctica infection as described from the Northern Hemisphere. The mode of transmission, incubation period, clinical syndrome, lack of response to β-lactam antimicrobial drugs, and response to aminoglycoside therapy are all characteristic of type B tularemia ( 6 ). ClpB mutants of Francisella tularensis subspecies 2018-7-27 · A DeltaclpB mutant of Francisella tularensis subspecies holarctica strain, FSC200, is a more effective live vaccine than F. tularensis LVS in a mouse respiratory challenge model of tularemia.

Francisella tularensis, the etiological agent of the zoonotic disease tularaemia, is a Gram-negative coccobacillus.At present, F. tularensis is divided into four subspecies (F. tularensis subsp. tularensis, F. tularensis subsp. holarctica, F. tularensis subsp. novicida and F. tularensis subsp. mediasiatica) [1, 2].However, the taxonomic boundaries of Francisella novicida have recently been
Francisella tularensis is a pathogenic species of Gram-negative coccobacillus, an aerobic bacterium. It is nonspore-forming, nonmotile, and the causative agent of tularemia, the pneumonic form of which is often lethal without treatment. This case demonstrates the well-recognized features of F. tularensis ssp. holarctica infection as described from the Northern Hemisphere. The mode of transmission, incubation period, clinical syndrome, lack of response to β-lactam antimicrobial drugs, and response to aminoglycoside therapy are all characteristic of type B tularemia ( 6 ). F. tularensis took 2 to 7 days to appear on the CGBA, while F. novicida took only 24 hours to appear. F. novicida grows much more rapidly on CGBA than F. tularensis. Another difference between the two is the virulence of F. novicida was lower. F. tularensis was highly virulent in F. tularensis may be identified through direct examination of secretions, exudates, or biopsy specimens using Gram stain, direct fluorescent antibody, or immunohistochemical stains. It can be grown from pharyngeal washings, sputum specimens, and even fasting gastric aspirates in a high proportion of patients with inhalational tularemia. There are four subspecies of F. tularensis, and all are capable of causing disease in humans (F. tularensis, F. holarctica, F. mediasiatica, and F. novicida). The subspecies tularensis and holarctica are the most common causes of tularemia in humans. The type of tularemia depends on which subspecies is involved and how the organism was acquired.
