Abstract

The name Enterobacter gergoviae sp. nov. is proposed for a group of organisms isolated from various clinical sources in France, Africa, and the United States and from environmental sources. deoxyribonucleic acid contains 60% guanine plus cytosine. Deoxyribonucleic acid relatedness studies showed strains to be very highly related, as is characteristic of strains of a single species. The biochemical profiles of strains were extremely similar. Phenotypically, belongs to the family and is most similar to is distinguishable from by its positive urea reaction and negative reactions for KCN, sorbitol, mucate, and gelatinase. Strain CIP 76.01 (= ATCC 33028 = CDC 604-77) is the type strain of this new species.
