Abstract

Five strains of actinomyces isolated from dental plaque of cattle formed a homogeneous group on the basis of Gram staining, colonial and cellular morphology, fermentation reactions, acid end products of metabolism, sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis patterns of polypeptides, cell wall carbohydrates, and peptidoglycan and deoxyribonucleic acid mean base compositions. These organisms were closely related, as determined by deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid homology, which distinguishes them from strains of , and . A new taxon, , is proposed for these isolates. The type strains of is strain NCTC 11923.
