corynebacterium mooreparkense sp. nov. and corynebacterium casei sp. nov., isolated from the surface of a smear-ripened cheese.ten isolates each of two different bacterial species isolated from the surface of a smear-ripened cheese were found to exhibit many characteristics of the genus corynebacterium. the isolates were gram-positive, catalase-positive, non-spore-forming rods that did not undergo a rod/coccus transformation when grown on complex media. chemotaxonomic investigation revealed that the strains belonged unambiguously to the genus corynebacterium. their cell walls contained arabinose, galactose and short-cha ...200111411705
biodiversity of the bacterial flora on the surface of a smear cheese.the bacteria on the surface of a farmhouse smear-ripened cheese at four stages of ripening (4, 16, 23, and 37 days) from inoculated (i.e., deliberately inoculated with brevibacterium linens bl2) and noninoculated (not deliberately inoculated with b. linens bl2) cheese were investigated. the results show that, contrary to accepted belief, b. linens is not a significant member of the surface flora of smear cheese and no microbial succession of species occurred during the ripening of the cheeses. o ...200211823224
bifidobacterium psychraerophilum sp. nov. and aeriscardovia aeriphila gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from a porcine a previous study that was based primarily on 16s rdna sequencing, two groups of bifidobacteria that had been recovered from a pig caecum were proposed to belong to two novel species, termed 'bifidobacterium pyschroaerophilum' and 'bifidobacterium aerophilum'. in this study, based on dna g+c content and partial heat-shock protein 60 (hsp60) gene sequences, the assignment of 'b. pyschroaerophilum', corrected to bifidobacterium pyschraerophilum, to the genus bifidobacterium was confirmed. the dn ...200415023951
corynebacterium mooreparkense, a later heterotypic synonym of corynebacterium variabile.strains of a gram-positive bacterium were isolated from the irish smear-ripened cheese gubbeen, and assigned to a new species, corynebacterium mooreparkense, in 2001. during a further study on the same cheese, no additional isolates from this species could be found. instead, multiple isolates of its nearest phylogenetic neighbour, corynebacterium variabile, were found. a first screening with rep-pcr and sds-page pointed to a similarity between c. mooreparkense and c. variabile. following this pe ...200515879244
alloscardovia omnicolens gen. nov., sp. nov., from human clinical samples.the taxonomic position of 12 isolates tentatively assigned to the genus bifidobacterium on the basis of a limited phenotypic characterization was examined. the isolates were collected between 1978 and 2005 in belgium, sweden and norway, and originated from various human clinical samples, including urine, blood, urethra, oral cavity, tonsil, and abscesses of lung and aortic valve. on the basis of band number and clustering analysis, repetitive dna element-based pcr fingerprinting using the boxa1r ...200717625172
bifidobacterium bombi sp. nov., from the bumblebee digestive tract.gram-positive-staining, anaerobic, non-spore-forming, lactate- and acetate-producing bacterial strains were isolated from the digestive tracts of different bumblebee species (bombus lucorum, bombus pascuorum and bombus lapidarius). all of the isolates produced fructose-6-phosphate phosphoketolase activity. a representative strain, bluci/tpt, was characterized further. cells of strain bluci/tpt showed occasional bifurcation and irregular constrictions. the bacterium utilized a wide range of carbo ...200919567560
a comprehensive microbial insight into two-stage anaerobic digestion of food waste-recycling wastewater.microbial community structures were assessed in a two-stage anaerobic digestion system treating food waste-recycling wastewater. the reactors were operated for 390 d at 10 different hydraulic retention times (hrts) ranging from 25 to 4 d. stable operation was achieved with the overall chemical oxygen demand (cod) removal efficiency of 73.0-85.9% at organic loading rate of up to 35.6 g cod/l·d. performance of the acidogenic reactors, however, changed significantly during operation. this change co ...201020678786
bombiscardovia coagulans gen. nov., sp. nov., a new member of the family bifidobacteriaceae isolated from the digestive tract of hundred and eighty-seven fructose-6-phosphate phosphoketolase positive strains were isolated from the digestive tract of three different bumblebee species. analyses of the partial 16s rrna gene sequences of the representative strains showed only 92.8% and 92.5% similarity to bifidobacterium coryneforme yit 4092(t) and bifidobacterium indicum jcm 1302(t), 92.2% similarity to alloscardovia omnicolens ccug 18650 and slightly reduced similarity of 91% to other members of the family bifidobacteri ...201020950979
