Abstract

A taxonomic study was performed on 15 bacterial isolates from the caeca of gnotobiotic mice that had been fed with thermophile-fermented compost. The 15 isolates were thermophilic, Gram-stain-positive, facultatively anaerobic, endospore-forming bacteria, and were most closely related to CNCM I-1378. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain N-11, selected as representative of this new group, showed a similarity of 99.4 % with CNCM I-1378, 94.7 % with R-6488, and 94.4 % with MO-04. The isolates were then classified into two distinct groups based on a (GTG)-fingerprint analysis. Two isolates, N-11 and N-21, were the representatives of these two groups, respectively.` The N-11 and N-21 isolates showed 66–71 % DNA–DNA relatedness with one other, but had less than 37 % DNA–DNA relatedness with LMG 18084. The other 13 isolates showed DNA–DNA relatedness values above 74 % with the N-11 isolate. All 15 isolates grew at 25–60 °C (optimum 50 °C), pH 6–8 (optimum pH 7) and were capable of growing on a medium containing 6 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum 0.5 %). The 15 isolates could be distinguished from LMG 18084 because they showed Tween 80 hydrolysis activity and did not produce acid from melibiose. The major fatty acids were anteiso-C, C, iso-C, iso-C and iso-C. The major polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol and several unidentified phospholipids. The diagnostic diamino acid in the cell-wall peptidoglycan was -diaminopimelic acid. The menaquinone was MK-7. The DNA G+C content was 37.9 mol%. Based on the phenotypic properties, the 15 strains represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is N-11 ( = NRBC 110226 = LMG 28201).
