Abstract

A novel species of the , sp. nov., is proposed based upon characterization of 27 isolates from valvular endocarditis in adult broiler parents. All isolates shared the same PFGE type after digestion of DNA with I and I. In addition, all isolates meet the phenotypic characters for the genus . Separation of the novel species from other species of was possible by means of tests for catalase, symbiotic growth, aerobic growth on agar, acid production from glycerol, xylitol, (+)--arabinose, (−)--mannitol, (−)--sorbitol, (−)--fucose, (+)--galactose, maltose, trehalose, raffinose and dextrin in addition to reactions with ONPG (-galactosidase) and PNPG (-glucosidase). The closest relationship was observed with which, however, can be separated from in acid production from (−)--mannitol, (−)--sorbitol and (−)--fucose. The highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity (98.4 %) was found to strain Modesto, belonging to serogroup C of . gene DNA sequence similarities corrected by the formula of Zeigler (2003) ( , 1893–1900) documented 85 % or less DNA sequence similarity between the type strain of and species of , confirming the separate species status of this taxon according to the multilocus sequence analysis method of Kuhnert & Korczak (2006) ( , 2537–2548). The type strain of sp. nov., strain 20186H4H1 (=CCUG 52860 =DSM 18224), was isolated from valvular endocarditis of a chicken in Denmark in 2004.
