Abstract

Summary: All of 43 strains of . 75 strains of and 10 strains of when grown in an acid-hydrolysed casein or nutrient broth medium produced butylamine and two other amines tentatively identified as amylamine and -methylbutylamine. These amines were not produced by any of 239 strains representative of other species in the family Enterobacteriaceae grown under the same conditions. This character is sufficiently constant to be included in the generic description. Ten strains of did not produce these amines, and for this and other reasons it is proposed that this species be excluded from the genus .
