Abstract

Several intermediate-growing, photochromogenic bacteria were isolated from sphagnum peat bogs in northern Minnesota, USA. Acid-fast staining and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis placed these environmental isolates in the genus , and colony morphologies and PCR restriction analysis patterns of the isolates were similar. Partial sequences of and from these isolates showed that ATCC BAA-1242 was the closest mycobacterial relative, and common biochemical characteristics and antibiotic susceptibilities existed between the isolates and ATCC BAA-1242. However, compared to nonchromogenic ATCC BAA-1242, the environmental isolates were photochromogenic, had a different mycolic acid profile and had reduced cell-surface hydrophobicity in liquid culture. The data reported here support the conclusion that the isolates are representatives of a novel mycobacterial species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is DL49 ( = DSM 45633 = JCM 17932 = NCCB 100399).
