Abstract

Three strains of a hitherto-unknown, Gram-stain-positive coccus were recovered from the milk of three non-related healthy women. The isolates shared 99 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with sequences from uncultured members of the and . The closest sequence corresponding to a defined species was that of GTC 848, with a similarity of 98 %. A partial sequence (488 bp) of the gene also showed 97 % similarity with that of CCUG 39814. The combined 16S rRNA/-based phylogeny revealed that all the isolates grouped in a statistically well-supported cluster separate from . Enzyme activity profiles as well as fermentation patterns differentiated the novel bacteria from other members of the group. Finally, phenotypic, genotypic and phylogenetic data supported the proposal of a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is MV1 ( = CECT 7613  = DSM 23027).
