Abstract

Fourteen strains were isolated from the oral cavity and genital tract of asymptomatic dogs. Isolates had been preliminarily identified by conventional serological testing as , but in 16S–23S rRNA intergenic spacer PCR-RFLP assays the isolates exhibited an RFLP pattern distinct from PG11. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene placed a representative of the isolates (strain 1642) in the subcluster of the cluster of mycoplasmas, with the highest sequence similarities to ST-6 (96.4 %), PG11 (96.3 %) and 852 (96.2 %). 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities almost equidistant from three recognized species and results obtained by sequence analysis of the 16S–23S rRNA intergenic spacer region, polar lipid profiles and serological reactions indicated that this organism represents a novel species of the genus for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with strain 1642 ( = ATCC BAA-1895  = DSM 22457) as the type strain.
