Description This small,straight Gram negative rod is motile by peritrichous flagella. Serratia rubidaea is a potential strain for lipase production by utilizing some of the cheapest substrates. The Subspecies burdigalensis,colindalensis and rubidaea of Serratia rubidaea were created in 1990 by Grimont et al.
Synonyms Serratia rubidaea (Stapp 1940) Ewing et al. 1973; Serratia marinorubra ZoBell and Upham 1944 (Approved Lists 1980); Serratia marinorubra.
Habitat/Source Rarely,it has been found in blood,the respiratory tract, wounds, and feces. It can be isolated infrequently from natural environments like fruits, vegetables, and ripe coconuts (Grimont et al.,1981c).
Pathogenicity Serratia rubidaea cause invasive human infection. Serratia rubidaea strain can cause spots on tomato fruits.(MH Abd-Alla et. al., Phytoparasitica, 2011) .
