Remarks: The 16S rRNA gene sequences of 30 strains representing 23 validated Corynebacterium species and 7 currently non-valid Corynebacterium species were determined. These sequences were aligned with the sequences of other Corynebacterium species and related actinomycete taxa. A comparative sequence analysis revealed that there is considerable phylogenetic depth and internal structure in the genus Corynebacterium. Turicella otitidis and the amycolate species Corynebacterium amycolatum were located at the periphery of the genus Corynebacterium. It was evident that the species of the genus Corynebacterium form a monophyletic association and, together with other chemotype IV and mycolic acid-containing taxa (including the genera Dietzia, Gordona, Mycobacterium, Nocardia, Rhodococcus, and Tsukamurella), form a natural suprageneric group.

Title: Taxonomic characterization of nine strains isolated from clinical and environmental specimens, and proposal of Corynebacterium tuberculostearicum sp. nov

Remarks: Nine unidentified Gram-positive, lipophilic corynebacteria were isolated from clinical and food samples and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic analysis. The bacteria were distinguished from Corynebacterium species with validly published names by biochemical tests, fatty acid content and whole-cell protein analysis. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis demonstrated unambiguously that the nine strains were related phylogenetically to the species 'Corynebacterium tuberculostearicum' and represented a distinct subline within the genus Corynebacterium. On the basis of both phenotypic and phylogenetic evidence, the formal description of Corynebacterium tuberculostearicum sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of C. tuberculostearicum is Medalle XT (=LDC-20T=CIP 107291T=CCUG 45418T=ATCC 35529T).

Note:

The Culture Collections hold cell cultures, bacteria, fungi and virus strains from worldwide sources. Our scientists ensure that the identification of the cultures is correct and they remain unchanged from when they are first deposited with the Collection. Nevertheless, some of the data we provide about the cultures is supplied by the person depositing the strains and, although we have multiple checking procedures in place, we cannot always verify all their data. Please note that the Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data provided by the depositors.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are to be used as controls for microbiology testing and for research purposes only. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.
