Arcobacter cibarius sp. nov., isolated from broiler carcasses.
TLDR
Data demonstrate that the 20 isolates represent a single novel Arcobacter species, for which the nameArcobacter cibarius sp.
Helicobacter pullorum in Chickens, Belgium
TLDR
Helicobacter pullorum is present in approximately one third of the chickens in Belgium and has an important role in egg establishment and growth.
Extended Multilocus Sequence Typing System for Campylobacter coli, C. lari, C. upsaliensis, and C. helveticus
TLDR
The expanded MLST method will prove useful in differentiating strains of five Campylobacter species, identifying mixed Campyloblacter cultures, and detecting genetic exchange within the genus.
Recommended minimal standards for describing new species of the genus Helicobacter.
TLDR
Minimum requirements for the description of new species of the genus Helicobacter must be based on examination of at least five strains in order to provide a measure of phenotypic and genotypic variation.
First multi-locus sequence typing scheme for Arcobacter spp.
TLDR
The first Arcobacter multilocus sequence typing (MLST) method for A. butzleri, A. cryaerophilus and A. cibarius is described, indicating that this MLST method will prove useful in both Arcobacteria strain discrimination and in epidemiological studies of sporadicArcobacter-related gastroenteritis.
Arcobacter halophilus sp. nov., the first obligate halophile in the genus Arcobacter.
TLDR
A Gram-negative bacterium, designated LA31B(T), was isolated from water collected from a hypersaline lagoon on Laysan Atoll in the north-western Hawaiian Islands and was found to be an obligate halophile, a hitherto undescribed feature among recognized Arcobacter species.
Arcobacter trophiarum sp. nov., isolated from fattening pigs.
In the course of a longitudinal study elucidating the dynamics of Arcobacter populations in pigs, 16 isolates of Gram-reaction-negative, rod-shaped, slightly curved, non-spore-forming bacteria were
Mucispirillum schaedleri gen. nov., sp. nov., a spiral-shaped bacterium colonizing the mucus layer of the gastrointestinal tract of laboratory rodents.
TLDR
Examination of 110 bacterial isolates cultivated from the gastrointestinal tract of 23 mice revealed the presence of a subgroup of 30 isolates that did not correspond genetically with genera commonly associated with this site, i.e. members of the epsilon-Proteobacteria such as Helicobacter and Campylobacter species.
Novel Campylobacter lari-like bacteria from humans and molluscs: description of Campylobacter peloridis sp. nov., Campylobacter lari subsp. concheus subsp. nov. and Campylobacter lari subsp. lari
TLDR
A polyphasic study was undertaken to clarify the taxonomic position of Campylobacter lari-like strains isolated from shellfish and humans, revealing the existence of two clusters distinct from C. lari and other Campyloblacter species.
