Abstract

Urealytic strains of coryneform bacteria that are designated group D2 and are isolated from human urine are a cause of urinary tract infections. Cell wall and lipid analyses confirmed that these organisms are members of the genus but can be separated from other species in the genus on the basis of DNA base composition and DNA-DNA hybridization values. Biochemically, strains in this taxon can be distinguished from other spp. by their failure to produce acid from carbohydrates, by their failure to reduce nitrates, and by their ability to hydrolyze urea. We regard these bacteria as a new species of the genus and propose the name . The type strain is strain NCTC 12011 (= ATCC 43042).
