Abstract

Almost the entire 16S rRNA gene sequences of some strains of CDC group 1 and group 1-like coryneform bacteria, isolated from human sources, were determined. Comparative analysis of the rRNA sequence data revealed that both groups of coryneforms belong to the genus . On the basis of the present molecular findings and previous biochemical studies, we propose a new species, sp. nov., containing subsp. subsp. nov. for CDC group 1 coryneform bacteria and subsp. subsp. nov. for CDC group 1-like coryneform bacteria.
