Abstract

Phylogenetic studies were performed on a group of novel Gram-stain-positive, anaerobic, non-sporulating rod-shaped bacteria isolated from a thermophilic biogas plant. The novel organisms were able to degrade crystalline cellulose. 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison indicated that the isolates SD1D, SD1G, SD1I and RK1P share 100 % sequence identity, and are most closely related to T3/55 with which they share a 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of 96.4 %. As a representative of the whole group of isolates, strain SD1D was further characterized. Strain SD1D was catalase-negative, indole-negative, and produced acetate, ethanol, butyric acid and hydrogen as major end-products during fermentative cellobiose utilization. Cells are rod-shaped, growing optimally at 40–65 °C and pH 6.5–8.5. The major cellular fatty acids (>10 %) were C 9,10 dimethyl acetal, C and C. The DNA G+C content was 35.1 mol%. Due to the genetic and phenotypic differences to the most closely affiliated species, the isolates represent a novel species of the genus within the family , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is SD1D(=DSM 100831=CECT 8959).
