Abstract

A Gram-positive-staining, aerobic, endospore-forming bacterium, isolated from a necrotic wound of a 35-year-old man was studied in detail to determine its taxonomic position. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity comparisons, strain CCUG 53270 was grouped into the genus , most closely related to the type strains of (97.2 %), (96.3 %) and (96.1 %). The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to strains of other species was ≤96 %. Chemotaxonomic characterization supported the allocation of the strain to the genus . The major menaquinones were MK-7 (85 %) and MK-6 (15 %). The polar lipid profile contained the major compounds diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylmonomethylethanolamine, phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylglycerol. The polyamine pattern contained predominantly spermidine. The major fatty acids were iso- and anteiso-branched fatty acids. The results of physiological and biochemical tests allowed phenotypic differentiation of strain CCUG 53270 from closely related species. Thus, strain CCUG 53270 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with CCUG 53270 ( = JCM 18268) as the type strain.
