Abstract

Two bacterial strains (B18BM42 and B18NM6) were recovered during a study of bacterial diversity on wine grapes ( L.) from the Nemea region in Greece. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences placed the two strains within the genus , and found them to be most closely related to NRIC 1625 followed by NRIC 1536 (99.1 and 98.9 % sequence similarity, respectively). The level of DNA–DNA relatedness between strains B18NM42 and NRIC 1625 or NRIC 1536 was 31.9 and 35.0 %, respectively. The two novel strains could be genetically differentiated from their closest relatives by REA-PFGE (restriction enzyme analysis-pulse field gel electrophoresis), RAPD (randomly amplified polymorphic DNA) and rep-PC R analyses (repetitive sequence-based PCR). Physiological examination showed that the novel strains can be distinguished from phylogenetically related species by their ability to grow at 42 °C and by certain carbohydrate fermentations. Based on the evidence above, the affiliation of the two strains to a novel species with the proposed name sp. nov. is suggested. The type strain is B18NM42 ( = DSM 28060 = NCCB 100484).
