Abstract

Three independent strains of a rapidly growing, non-chromogenic member of the genus were isolated from lymph nodes of French cattle. Identification of the isolates was carried out using a polyphasic approach. The nearly complete SSU rRNA gene sequences (>1200 bp) of the strains MLB-A23, MLB-A30 and MLB-A84 were identical. A phylogenetic analysis of these unique SSU rRNA gene sequences showed that these strains were most closely related to . Further phylogenetic analysis based on concatenated sequences (2854 bp) of four housekeeping genes (, , and ), the transfer–messenger RNA (tmRNA) and SSU rRNA genes indicated that these three strains represented a distinct species that shares a common ancestor with . Phylogenetic and phenotypic data strongly indicate that the strains MLB-A23, MLB-A30 and MLB-A84 belong to a novel mycobacterial species for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is MLB-A84 ( = CIP 110557 = DSM 45746).
