Streptococcus rubneri sp. nov., isolated from the human throat

Author

Abstract
Novel, Gram-positive, ovoid lactic acid bacterial isolates LMG 27205, LMG 27206, LMG 27207T and MRI-F 18 were obtained from throat samples of healthy humans. 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses indicated that these isolates belong to the genus Streptococcus, specifically the Streptococcus mitis group, with Streptococcus australis and Streptococcus mitis as nearest neighbours (99.45% and 98.56% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, respectively). Genotypic fingerprinting by AFLP and PFGE, DNA-DNA hybridisations, comparative sequence analysis of pheS, rpoA, atpA and physiological and biochemical tests revealed that these bacteria formed a taxon well-separated from its nearest neighbours and other established Streptococcus species and therefore represent a new species, for which the name Streptococcus rubneri sp. nov. is proposed (with LMG 27207T = DSM 26920T) as type strain.
