The genus Bordetella comprises one environmental isolate and several human and animal pathogens. Bordetella petrii (strain ATCC BAA-461 / DSM 12804 / CCUG 43448), the only facultatively anerobic Bordetella, was isolated from an anaerobic, dechlorinating bioreactor culture enriched from river sediment in Germany. It was isolated from the dechlorinating mixed culture due to its ability to anaerobically reduce selenate to elemental selenium. B.petrii strains have also been isolated from cystic fibrosis patients, from patients with degenerative bone disease as well as from marine sponges and a grass root consortium. Compared to other Bordetellae, B.petrii DSM 12804 has many mobile genetic elements (22% of its genome) including 7 laterally acquired genomic islands. All of these genomic island are still mobile within the DSM 12804 population. It has the ability to degrade a remarkable variety of aromatic compounds, which explains the large variety of niches from which it has been isolated. It encodes various virulence factors, but lacks all known toxins found in pathogenic Bordetella (adapted from PubMed 18826580).
