Abstract

Lactic acid bacteria were isolated from the crop and intestines of pigeons. One group of strains, showing similar genomic patterns after screening with tRNA intergenic spacer PCR, could not be identified to the species level. Sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene of one representative strain revealed about 96 % similarity to sequences from and . Determination of the DNA base composition, DNA–DNA hybridization experiments, SDS-PAGE of whole-cell proteins and biochemical testing confirmed that the seven strains studied constitute a single novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is strain KR3 (=LMG 20380 =CCUG 45722).
