Abstract

An indole-, oxidase- and catalase-negative, non-motile bacterium, strain OGS16, was isolated from an oral swab of a feral black rat () in 2007 in Japan. It stained Gram-negative and had pleomorphic, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming cells. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses, strain OGS16 was assigned to the genus , with 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities of 99.3, 99.0, 98.6 and 95.5 % to the type strains of , , and , respectively. Strain OGS16 could also be differentiated clearly from other species of the genus by , and nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequence analysis. DNA–DNA relatedness as obtained by average nucleotide identity was 89.10 % between strain OGS16 and DSM 12112. Chemotaxonomic and physiological data for strain OGS16 were congruent with results for other closely related members of the family , represented by highly similar enzyme profiles and fatty acid patterns. MALDI-TOF MS analysis also proved suitable in discriminating strain OGS16 unequivocally from all currently described taxa of the genus . On the basis of these data, we propose the novel species sp. nov., with the type strain OGS16 ( = JCM 31098 = DSM 101843). The G+C content of the DNA of the type strain is 25.9 mol% and the genome size is 1.50 Mbp.
