Abstract

Three Gram-positive-staining strains isolated from fermented stinky tofu brine were rod-shaped, non-motile, asporogenous, facultatively anaerobic, heterofermentative and did not exhibit catalase activity. Comparative analyses of 16S rRNA, and gene sequences demonstrated that the novel strains were members of the genus . On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, the type strains of (98.6 %), (98.6 %) and (99.6 %) were the closest neighbours. However, DNA–DNA reassociation values with these strains were less than 10 %. The phenotypic and genotypic features demonstrated that these isolates represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is YIT 11304 (=JCM 15043 =BCRC 17810 =DSM 19909).
