Streptococcus faecalis

Streptococcus faecalis is a gram positive bacterium belonging to the lactic acid bacteria group. Streptococcus bacteria grow in pairs or chains because of their type of cellular division which is a division along a single axis. Streptococcus faecalis has been reclassified as Enterococcus faecalis. Streptococcus faecalis is found in the region from the upper to lower part of small intestines. On proliferation, it yields lactic acid with inhibition of growth of harmful bacteria.
