Abstract

A secondary intracellular symbiotic bacterium was isolated from the haemolymph of the tsetse fly and cultured in cell line C6/36. Pure-culture isolation of this bacterium was achieved through the use of solid-phase culture under a microaerobic atmosphere. After isolation of strain M1, a range of tests was performed to determine the phenotypic properties of this bacterium. Considering the results of these tests, along with the phylogenetic position of this micro-organism, it is proposed that this intracellular symbiont from should be classified in a new genus gen. nov., as gen. nov., sp. nov. Strain M1is the type strain for this new species.
