Abstract

To reinvestigate the taxonomy of [] , 474 strains, mainly from mice and rats, were characterized by phenotype and 130 strains selected for genotypic characterization by 16S rRNA and partial gene sequencing. The type strain was further investigated by whole-genome sequencing. Phylogenetic analysis of the DNA sequences showed one monophyletic group with intragroup similarities of 96.7 and 97.2 % for the 16S rRNA and genes, respectively. The highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to a taxon with a validly published name outside the group was 95.9 %, to the type strain of [Pasteurella] The closest related taxon based on sequence comparison was ‘’, with 88.4 % similarity. A new genus and a new combination, gen. nov., comb. nov., are proposed based on a distinct phylogenetic position based on 16S rRNA and gene sequence comparisons, with major divergence from the existing genera of the family . The new genus has the characteristics of with the emendation that acid formation from ( − )--mannitol and hydrolysis of aesculin are variable, while the α-glucosidase test is positive. There is no requirement for exogenously supplied NAD (V factor) for the majority of strains investigated; however, one strain was found to require NAD. The major fatty acids of the type strain of were C, C 3-OH/iso-C I, Cω7 and C, which is in line with most genera of the . The type strain of is CCUG 16938 ( = NCTC 12432 = ATCC 49577).
