Description of Acinetobacter ihumii sp. nov., Microbacterium ihumii sp. nov., and Gulosibacter massiliensis sp. nov., three new bacteria isolated from human blood

Abstract : Abstract Blood is precious tissue that is normally sterile. With the aim of diagnosing the cause of bacteremia, three bacterial strains were isolated from three different individuals. Strains Marseille-P7157T and Marseille-Q2854T are Gram-stain positive, non-spore-forming rod-shaped bacteria, while strain Marseille-P8049T is a Gram-stain negative, motile, non-spore-forming and rod-shaped bacterium. The major fatty acids found (>30%) were hexadecanoic acid for strain Marseille-P8049T and 12-methyl tetradecanoic acid for both strains Marseille-P7157T and Marseille-P2854T. The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis shows that strains Marseille-P8049 and Marseille-Q2854T have sequence similarity of 96.8%, 99.04%, and 98.3% with Acinetobacter ursingii strain LUH3792 (NR_025392.1), Gulosibacter faecalis strain B187 (NR_041812.1), and Schaalia canis strain CCUG 41706 (NR_025366.1), respectively. In addition, strains Marseille-Q2854T, Marseille-P8049T and Marseille-P7157T shared with their closely related species cited above the following DDH values: 19.5%, 24.4%, and 20.2%, respectively. Based on these phenotypic and genomic findings, we consider that strains Marseille-P8049T (= CSUR P8049 = CECT 30350), Marseille-P2854T ( = CSUR Q2854 = CECT 30120) and Marseille-P7157T ( = CSUR P7157 = CECT 30048) are new bacterial species, for which the names Acinetobacter ihumii sp. nov., Microbacterium ihumii sp. nov., and Gulosibacter massiliensis sp. nov., are proposed.
