Abstract

A novel Gram-stain-negative and strictly anaerobic bacterial strain, designated KGMB02408, was isolated from faeces of a healthy human in the Republic of Korea. The isolate was characterized as non-motile, non-spore-forming and rod-shaped (variable in length). The results of phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain KGMB02408 belonged to the genus and was most closely related to JCM 17102 (=KCTC 15666; 96.5 %). Based on its whole-genome sequence, the DNA G+C content of the isolate was 39.5 mol%. The average nucleotide identity value between strain KGMB02408 and related species, JCM 17102, was 93.8 %. The major cellular fatty acids (>10 %) of the isolate were anteiso-C, iso-C-OH, summed feature 11 (iso-C-OH and/or C DMA) and C. Menaquinone-8 (28.6 %) and menaquinone-10 (47.1 %) were detected as the major respiratory quinones in the isolate. The major end products of glucose fermentation produced by strain KGMB02408 were lactic acid, acetic acid and formic acid. Based on its phylogenetic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics, strain KGMB02408 represents a novel species of the genus in the family . The type strain is KGMB02408 (=KCTC 15687=DSM 107828).
