Abstract

Three heterofermentative lactic acid bacteria, obtained from Greek and Belgian artisanal wheat sourdoughs, were preliminarily identified as -like after screening using whole-cell protein fingerprinting and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis. The three sourdough isolates showed nearly identical sequences (>99·7 % sequence similarity), and highest similarities of 98·2 and 97·6 % were obtained to the species and , respectively. Growth characteristics, biochemical features, amplified fragment length polymorphism fingerprinting, DNA–DNA hybridizations and DNA G+C contents demonstrated that the isolates represent two novel species. The names sp. nov. and sp. nov. are proposed and the type strains are LMG 22200 (=R-19065=CCM 7240) and LMG 22198 (=R-18615=CCM 7241), respectively.
