Abstract/Summary

Unusual Gram-negative, catalase- and oxidase-positive, coccus-shaped bacteria isolated from the lungs of two lambs were characterized by phenotypic and molecular-genetic methods. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies demonstrated that the unknown isolates were genealogically highly related to each other (99.8% sequence similarity) and represent a novel subline within the genus Psychrobacter. The unknown bacterium was phylogenetically closely related to, but distinct from, Psychrobacter phenylpyruvicus, Psychrobacter immobilis, Psychrobacter glacincola and Psychrobacter urativorans. The novel Psychrobacter isolates were readily distinguished from all other Psychrobacter species and other Gram-negative, oxidase-positive bacteria usually responsible for lung infections in sheep by physiological and biochemical tests. Based on molecular-genetic and phenotypic evidence, it is proposed that the unknown Psychrobacter isolates from lambs be classified as Psychrobacterpulmonis sp. nov. The type strain is strain S-606(T) (= CECT 5989(T) = CCUG 46240(T)).
