Anaerococcus urinimassiliensis sp. nov., a new bacterium isolated from human urine

Abstract : Abstract To date there are thirteen species validly assigned to the genus Anaerococcus . Most of the species in this genus are anaerobic and of human origin. Anaerococcus urinimassiliensis sp. nov., strain Marseille-P2143 T is member of family Peptoniphilaceae, which was isolated from the urine of a 17-year-old boy affected by autoimmune hepatitis and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis using the culturomic approach. In the current study, a taxono-genomics method was employed to describe this new species. The strain Marseille-P2143 T was gram positive cocci with translucent colonies on blood agar. Its genome was 2,189,509 bp long with a 33.5 mol% G + C content and exhibited 98.48% 16S rRNA similarity with Anaerococcus provencensis strain 9,402,080. When Anaerococcus urinomassiliensis strain Marseill-P2143 T is compared with closely related species, the values ranged from 71.23% with A . hydrogenalis strain DSM 7454 T (NZ_ABXA01000052.1) to 90.64% with A. provencensis strain 9402080 T (NZ_HG003688.1). This strain has implemented the repertoire of known bacteria of the human urinary tract.
