Abstract

Three novel Gram-negative, non-fermenting aerobic bacilli were isolated from human clinical samples. They shared more than 99.8 % of the 16S rRNA gene nucleotide positions. The strains were related to with about 97.48 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity. In 16S rRNA gene-, - and -based phylogenies, the strains were grouped in a lineage that was distinct from other species in the family . Fatty acid composition, polar lipids, quinone system, DNA–DNA relatedness, genome organization, and physiological and biochemical data differentiated these isolates from recognized species of the genus . The three clinical strains therefore represent a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov., is proposed. The type strain is ADV31 (=CIP 109116=DSM 17490). The DNA G+C content of strain ADV31 was 54.5 mol%.
