Abstract

Six strains of anaerobic, Gram-negative coccobacilli isolated from the root canals of patients with endodontic infections (five strains) and from a deep periodontal pocket (one strain) were subjected to a comprehensive range of phenotypic and genetic tests and were found to comprise a homogeneous group. Following 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, they were found to be most closely related to , with 93 % sequence similarity between the two taxa. A novel species, sp. nov., is proposed. Biochemically, the species is largely unreactive and is asaccharolytic, with only traces of acetate and propionate detected as metabolic end-products. The G+C content of the DNA of strains is 45–46 mol%. The type strain is E7.25 (=CCUG 47026=DSM 15470).
