The genera , , , , and belong to the family Alcaligenaceae (order in the β subclass of the ). The genus was proposed for a set of strains phenotypically resembling that were classified as or as belonging to at least one other species. Virulence factors of bordetellae can be classified as adhesins, autotransporters (i.e., filamentous hemagglutinin [FHA], fimbriae [FIM], and pertactin [PRN]), and toxins (i.e., pertussis toxin [PT], adenylate cyclase toxin, and lipopolysaccharide [LPS]). For other bordetellae, normal microbiological transport media seem to be suitable for transport. Similarly, , , , and species can survive in a wide range of environments and at various temperatures. Commercial multiplex PCRs for the detection of various respiratory agents, including bordetellae, are available. Members of the genus can be separated from related species by their inability to assimilate phenyl acetate. and are susceptible in vitro to a range of antibiotics, including penicillins, macrolides, ketolides, quinolones, and other antibiotics, including tetracyclines, chloramphenicol, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, whereas they are resistant to most oral cephalosporins. Antimicrobial sensitivity testing of the isolates should be interpreted in accordance with criteria for other infrequently isolated and fastidious nonfermentative gram-negative rods.
