Abstract

The taxonomic position of strain LMG 13590, originally isolated from dog faeces and classified as in the BCCM/LMG Bacteria Catalogue, was reinvestigated. This strain and 12 recent isolates from faecal samples of healthy dogs occupied a clearly separate position when investigated with multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) of the genes encoding the alpha subunit of ATP synthase (), RNA polymerase alpha subunit () and phenylalanyl-tRNA synthase alpha subunit (). The 16S rRNA gene sequence of one representative strain showed highest similarities of 98–99 % with LMG 13521, LMG 12316 and LMG 18727. A further polyphasic taxonomic study based on whole-cell protein fingerprinting, DNA–DNA hybridization and biochemical features demonstrated that the 13 enterococcal dog faecal strains represent a single, novel species for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is LMG 13590 (=CCM 7285).
