Proteus occurs primarily in fecal matter and in putrefying materials. P. mirabilis is found in putrid meat, infusions, and abscesses; also reported to be a cause of gastro-enteritis. P. rettgeri is found in chicken cholera and human gastro-enteritis.

Proteus vulgaris an essentially saprophytic species that may produce urinary tract infections.
Proteus mirabilis major agent in human infection of urinary tract.
Proteus mirabilis, a common cause of bacteriuria and the most frequently described cause of
infection-induced urinary tract and kidney stones, produces a urease that is inducible with urea. This
enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of urea to CO2, and NH3, initiating formation of struvite
(MgNH4PO46H2O) or carbonate-apatite (Ca10(PO4CO3OH)6(OH)) stones.
Proteus mirabilis expresses a number of proteins besides urease that have been correlated with
virulence in the urinary tract.

It is now being realized that prolonged nerve strain is a factor in the production of duodenal ulcer, and in the  Proteus  proving, this is also to be found.
