Abstract

Strain GAM6-1 is a novel, strictly anaerobic, non-spore-forming, Gram-stain-positive bacterium that was isolated from the faeces of a healthy individual. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain GAM6-1 was most closely related to ATCC 27340 (95.7 % sequence similarity), in the family . Strain GAM6-1 did not exhibit catalase or oxidase activity. The strain’s cellular fatty acids were of the straight-chain saturated and mono-unsaturated types, with C (24.10 %), C (19.09 %) and C dimethylacetal (14.35 %) predominant. Strain GAM6-1 was able to produce acid from various carbohydrates. Glucose fermentation produced acetic acid as the major short-chain fatty acid. The genomic DNA G+C content of strain GAM6-1 was 35.6 mol%. Based on phenotypic, genotypic and phylogenetic evidence, strain GAM6-1 ( = KCTC 5981  = JCM 17204) is considered to represent a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
