Abstract

A gram-negative, oxidase-positive, rod-shaped bacterium isolated from the heart of a cotton-topped tamarin was characterized by 16S rDNA sequence analysis, SDS-PAGE of whole-cell proteins, fatty acid analysis and biochemical tests. Outer-membrane proteins, iron-regulated outer-membrane proteins, lipopolysaccharides and siderophore production were studied. On the basis of the results, the organism belongs to the beta-Proteobacteria where it forms a separate line of descent, for which a novel genus and species are proposed, Brackiella oedipodis (LMG 19451T = DSM 13743T = NCIMB 13739T). Nearest phylogenetic neighbours of the new genus are Taylorella, Pelistega, Bordetella, Alcaligenes and Achromobacter.
