Abstract

is a Gram-stain-positive bacterium with eight subspecies. One of these subspecies is subsp. , which causes bacterial canker disease in tomato. Bacterial strains showing very similar canker disease symptoms to those of a strain originally classified as have been isolated from pepper. In this paper, we reclassified strains isolated from pepper. On the basis of phylogenetic analysis with 16S rRNA gene sequences, the strains isolated from pepper were grouped in a separate clade from other subspecies of . Biochemical, physiological and genetic characteristics of strain PF008, which is the representative strain of the isolates from pepper, were examined in this study. Based on multi-locus sequence typing and other biochemical and physiological features including colony color, utilization of carbon sources and enzyme activities, strain PF008 was categorically differentiated from eight subspecies of . Moreover, genome analysis showed that the DNA G+C content of strain PF008 is 73.2 %. These results indicate that PF008 is distinct from other known subspecies of . Therefore, we propose a novel subspecies, subsp. causing bacterial canker disease in pepper, with a type strain of PF008 (=KACC 18448=LMG 29047).
