Abstract

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacterium (strain CCUG 43427A) was isolated from a patient suffering from endophthalmitis and its taxonomic position was studied. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that this strain was a member of the genus Strain CCUG 43427A was most closely related to the type strains of (97.4 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity) and (97.2 %); levels of similarity to the type strains of all other recognized species were below 97.0 %. Chemotaxonomic data [Q-8 as major ubiquinone; phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol and diphosphatidylglycerol as major polar lipids; and summed feature 3 (Cω7 and/or iso-C 2-OH), C, Cω7, C and C 3-OH as major fatty acids] supported the affiliation of the isolate to the genus . Levels of DNA–DNA relatedness of strain CCUG 43427A with CCUG 45783 and AP13 were 60.6 % (reciprocal, 55.8 %) and 58.1 % (reciprocal, 34.0 %), respectively. Strain CCUG 43427A could be differentiated from its closest phylogenetic neighbours based on a range of phenotypic characteristics. Strain CCUG 43427A is therefore considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CCUG 43427A ( = CCM 7900).
