Genomic description and characterization of Nigeribacterium massiliense gen. nov., sp. nov., isolate
#taxonomy #genomics #microbiology
Strain Marseille-P1302 was isolated from the stool of a 2-year-old Nigerian boy suffering from Kwashiorkor, a form of severe acute malnutrition. The strain grows in aerobic atmosphere and bacterial cells are Gram-positive cocci ranging in diameter from 0.8 to 1 μm. Strain Marseille-P1302 exhibits a 16S rRNA sequence similarity of 94.97% with Brevilactibacter flavus strain VG341T, but phylogenetically-closest species with standing in nomenclature is Brevilactibacter sinopodophylli strains KCTC 33808Twith the sequence similarity of 93.41%. The draft genome of strain Marseille-P1302 is 2,934,258bp-long with a 70.38% G+C content, and contains 2,704 protein-coding genes and 55 RNAs that includes 9 rRNA genes. On the basis of these data, we propose the creation of the new genus Nigeribacterium gen. nov., with strain Marseille-P1302T (= CSUR P1302 = DSM 29084) being the type strain of new species Nigeribacterium. massiliense gen. nov., sp. nov.
