EtymologyEdit

Acinetobacter is a compound word from scientific Greek [ α + κίνητο + βακτηρ(ία)], meaning 'nonmotile rod'. The first element acineto- is a somewhat baroque rendering of the Greek morpheme ακίνητο-; the more common transliteration in English is akineto-, as in akinetic.

Proper nounEdit

Acinetobacter m

  1. A taxonomic genus within the family Moraxellaceae — Gram-negative bacteria found in soil.
