Abstract

Phenotypic and genotypic studies revealed new tools for differentiating genomovar VI from and other -complex species. Hence, the name sp. nov. is proposed, with LMG 18943 (=CCUG 47727) as the type strain. can be differentiated from other -complex bacteria by its inability to assimilate tryptamine, azelaic acid and salicin and by its failure to grow on the -selective medium PCAT. Both 16S rDNA and RFLP analysis revealed unique restriction patterns. In addition, new 16S rDNA- and -based PCR assays allowed its specific identification.
