Abstract

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-DNA hybridization was performed with 10 strains belonging to the “ complex” by using the competition method on nitrocellulose filters. These strains exhibited more than 75% DNA binding to ATCC 14589 (T = type strain) and constitute DNA hybridization group 14589 (including strains ATCC 14589 and CDC 1429-71 from DNA hybridization group III [D. J. Brenner, G. R. Fanning, J. K. Leete Knutson, A. G. Steigerwalt, and M. J. Krichevsky, Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 34:45–55,1984]). The high level of genomic relatedness of these strains was confirmed by the similarities observed in their electrophoretic protein patterns. On the basis of our data, DNA hybridization group 14589 constitutes a discrete species within the family Its closest relative is DNA hybridization group 27155 (41 to 53% DNA relatedness), which was previously defined and includes the type strains, among others, of , , and (A. Beji, J. Mergaert, F. Gavini, D. Izard, K. Kersters, H. Leclerc, and J. De Ley, Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 38:77-88, 1988). We propose to unite DNA hybridization groups 14589 and 27155 in a single genus, gen. nov. (Beijerinck 1888) comb. nov. is proposed to contain most strains of DNA hybridization group 27155 (including DNA hybridization group XIII of Brenner et al.), and its type strain is strain ATCC 27155 (= NCTC 9381 = LMG 1286). sp. nov. is proposed to contain DNA hybridization group 14589, and its type strain is strain ATCC 14589 (= LMG 2603). Descriptions of the genus and its two species are given.
