Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, motile, non-spore-forming, coccoid bacterium was isolated from a stool sample of a healthy human subject and formed cream colour colonies on tryptic soy agar. Almost full-length (1500 bp) small subunit rRNA (16S rRNA) gene sequences were generated and a similarity search was conducted by . The results of the similarity search indicated that the bacterium belongs to the class , family . It showed maximum sequence similarity (96.5 %) with CCUG 39967 followed by DSM 17166 (96.1 %) and LMG 19572 (95.3 %). The DNA G+C content of strain HM-7 was 42 mol%. Strain HM-7 contained C, C, C 3-OH and C as the dominant fatty acids. Morphological, physiological and biochemical data also indicated that strain HM-7 represents a member of the genus , but at the same time distinguished it from CCUG 39967, the only species of the genus with a validly published name. Based on polyphasic characterization we conclude that the bacterium represents a novel species of the genus and propose the name sp. nov., with strain HM-7 ( = MCC 2185 = DSM 27484) as the type strain of the species.
