A coryneform strain, 06-1773OT (=WAL 19168T), derived from a groin abscess sample was characterized using phenotypic and molecular taxonomic methods. Comparative analyses revealed more than 3% divergence of the 16S rRNA gene sequence and about 10% divergence of the partial rpoB gene sequence from the type strain of Corynebacterium glucuronolyticum. The strain could also be differentiated from C. glucuronolyticum by a set of phenotypic properties. A DNA-DNA relatedness study between strain WAL 19168T and C. glucuronolyticum CCUG 35055T showed a relatedness value of 13.3% (13.7% on repeat analysis). The genotypic and phenotypic data show that the strain merits classification within a novel species of Corynebacterium. We propose the name Corynebacterium pyruviciproducens sp. nov. for the novel species. The type strain is 06-1773OT (=WAL 19168T =CCUG 57046T =ATCC BAA-1742T). © 2010 IUMS. Source

The partial 16S rRNA, rpoB, and cpn60 genes congruently allow this study to identify all the eight isolates as the species Campylobacter showae. To our knowledge, this is the first report to reveal the interspecies and intraspecies sequence variations present in the three genes of the C. showae isolates. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. Source
