Abstract

Twelve strains of homofermentative lactobacilli and two strains of heterofermentative lactobacilli were isolated from kefir grains by using R-CW agar medium. The physiological and biochemical characteristics, DNA guanine-plus-cytosine contents, and levels of DNA-DNA relatedness of these isolates and previously described lactobacilli were compared. Our results indicated that two new species, and , could be distinguished. The type strain of sp. nov. is GCL 1701 (= JCM 8572), and the type strain of sp. nov. is GCL 1731 (= JCM 8573).
