Abstract

Three strains, JCM 5343, JCM 5344 and JCM 1130, currently identified as Lactobacillus gasseri , were investigated using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Although these strains shared high 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities with L. gasseri ATCC 33323 (99.9 %), they formed a clade clearly distinct from ATCC 33323 based on whole-genome relatedness. The average nucleotide identity and in silico DNA–DNA hybridization values of these three strains compared to L. gasseri ATCC 33323 were 93.4–93.7 and 53.1–54.1 %, respectively, and both were less than the widely accepted threshold to distinguish two species (95 and 70 %, respectively). The three strains were Gram-stain positive, non-motile, non-spore-forming, catalase-negative and rod-shaped bacteria. They grew at 25–45 °C and in the presence of 2.0 % (w/v) NaCl. The major fatty acids of the three strains were C16 : 0 and C18 : 1 ω9c. Based on phylogenetic analyses of the phenylalanyl-tRNA synthase alpha subunit and RNA polymerase alpha subunit genes, and on phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics, strains JCM 5343, JCM 5344 and JCM 1130 represent a novel species distinct from L. gasseri , for which we propose the name Lactobacillus paragasseri sp. nov. In addition, a large portion of genomes currently labelled as L. gasseri in the public sequence database should be reclassified as L. paragasseri based on whole-genome relatedness.
