Streptococcus pyogenes and streptococcal disease

Streptococcus pyogenes and streptococcal disease

The group A streptococcus bacterium (Streptococcus pyogenes, or GAS) is a form of β-hemolytic Streptococcus bacteria responsible for most cases of streptococcal illness. Other types (B, C, D, and G) may also cause infection. Several virulence factors contribute to the pathogenesis of GAS, such as M protein, hemolysins, and extracellular enzymes.

Beta hemolysis will appear as a clearing in the sheep blood agar. This is a characteristic of Streptococcus pyogenes the agent of Strep throat.
