Pseudomonas acidophila is a Gram-negative soil bacterium that produces the beta-lactam antibiotic, sulfazecin,[1] as well as bulgecins.[2] It was first isolated in Japan. Because this organism is patented,[3] it is not officially recognized as a legitimate Pseudomonas species, and therefore has no type strain. It is available, however, through the American Type Culture Collection[1].
