Abstract

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacterial strain, designated LMG 2337, was isolated from the blood of a patient with endocarditis and characterized. The strain was affiliated with the alphaproteobacterial genus , with LMG 2089 (98.3 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity) and KSL-145 (97.5 %) as its closest relatives. This affiliation was supported by chemotaxonomic data: the G+C content was 66.3 mol %, the major polar lipids were phosphatidyl diacylglycerol, sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerol and phosphatidyl glucopyranosyl diacylglycerol and the major fatty acids were summed feature 7 (one or more of C 7, C 9 and C 12) and C. Strain LMG 2337 displayed an unusually broad substrate spectrum. The results from DNA–DNA hybridization and physiological and biochemical tests allowed the genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain LMG 2337 from all of the type strains of hitherto-described species. The strain therefore represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with type strain LMG 2337 (=CCUG 1797 =ATCC 14736).
