Abstract

A strain of a previously undescribed non-lipophilic coryneform bacterium was isolated from pleural fluids of a patient with chronic renal failure, stroke and pneumonia. Slow fermentative acid production from glucose, maltose and sucrose, and strong N-acetyl-β-glucosaminidase activity were the most characteristic features of the bacterium. Chemotaxonomic characterization unambiguously indicated that the organism belonged to the genus . The results of comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the isolate represented a new species within the genus, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is DSM 44276.
