Abstract

A new species, for which we propose the name was isolated from subgingival plaque from an adult with periodontal disease. The morphological characteristics, differential biochemical characteristics, and protein profiles on sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis gels of this organism are described. The guanine-plus-cytosine content of the DNA of is 51 mol%. The levels of DNA-DNA relatedness of the new species to other species, including , , , , and , are less than 30%. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA sequences distinguished the new strain from strains belonging to previously described species. The type strain of is strain G7201.
