Abstract

Abstract

Chemotaxonomic and 16S ribosomal DNA sequence analyses of four bacterial isolates from blood cultures from patients with cardiac pacemaker implants and sputa of patients with chronic lung infections clearly demonstrated that these bacteria belong to the genus DNA-DNA hybridization data, as well as the physiological characteristics of the isolates, indicate that they are closely related and belong to a single species that differs from previously described members of the genus The name sp. nov. is proposed for these isolates, and the new species is represented by strain IMMIB (= DSM 44234). Strain IMMIB D-1397 exhibits 53.4, 53.5, and 54.7% DNA-DNA relatedness to DSM 20162, DSM 44067, and DSM 441 respectively.
