Abstract

An equol-producing bacterium, strain DZE, which was isolated from human faeces, was characterized by morphological, biochemical and molecular methods. The isolate was Gram-positive, obligately anaerobic, non-spore-forming, asaccharolytic and rod-shaped. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed 92.8, 91.0, 91.1 and 90.6 % similarities with , , and , respectively. Based on these data, we propose a novel species of the genus , sp. nov. The major cellular fatty acids are C, C 9 and C 9 DMA (dimethyl acetal). The DNA G+C content of the strain is 60.8 mol%. The type strain of . sp. nov. is DZE (=JCM 16059 =CCUG 58231).
