Characterization and emended description of Lactobacillus kunkeei as a fructophilic lactic acid bacterium.
TLDR
On the basis of the evidence gathered in this study, the type strain of L. kunkeei is recognized as a member of the 'obligately' fructophilic lactic acid bacteria.
Weissella oryzae sp. nov., isolated from fermented rice grains.
TLDR
A taxonomic study was conducted on two Gram-reaction-positive, catalase-negative, irregular short-rod-shaped or coccoid lactic acid bacteria that were isolated from grains of fermented Japanese rice, finding that strains SG25(T) and SG23 represent a single novel species in the genus Weissella.
Detection and Genomic Characterization of Motility in Lactobacillus curvatus: Confirmation of Motility in a Species outside the Lactobacillus salivarius Clade
TLDR
Novel phenotypic, genetic, and phylogenetic insights are provided into flagellum-mediated motility in lactobacilli and recent horizontal transfer between members of two distinct Lactobacillus clades are suggested.
Lactobacillus hokkaidonensis sp. nov., isolated from subarctic timothy grass (Phleum pratense L.) silage.
TLDR
Four strains of Gram-positive, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped, catalase-negative and non-motile lactic acid bacteria were isolated from timothy grass silage produced in Hokkaido, a subarctic region of Japan, indicating the psychrotolerant nature of these strains.
Description of Lactobacillus iwatensis sp. nov., isolated from orchardgrass (Dactylis glomerata L.) silage, and Lactobacillus backii sp. nov.
TLDR
Genotypic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic analyses confirmed that these novel strains occupy a unique taxonomic position and suggest that 'L. backi' does represent a novel Lactobacillus species.
Fructobacillus tropaeoli sp. nov., a fructophilic lactic acid bacterium isolated from a flower.
TLDR
DNA-DNA hybridization studies showed that strain F214-1(T) was phylogenetically distinct from its closest relatives and represents a novel species of fructophilic bacteria in the genus Fructobacillus, for which the name FructOBacillus tropaeoli sp.
Comparison of Components and Synthesis Genes of Cell Wall Teichoic Acid among Lactobacillus plantarum Strains
TLDR
It is proposed that the genes in the lp_1816–tagB2 region were tarI, tarJ, tarK, and tarL, which are involved in the synthesis of the ribitol-type backbone of L. plantarum.
Lactobacillus sucicola sp. nov., a motile lactic acid bacterium isolated from oak tree (Quercus sp.) sap.
TLDR
It is concluded that the three new isolates from sap obtained from two different oak trees on Awashima Island represent a novel species, for which the name Lactobacillus sucicola sp.
Lactobacillus faecis sp. nov., isolated from animal faeces.
TLDR
It is concluded that the three lactic acid bacteria isolated from faeces of a jackal and raccoons represent a novel species of the genus Lactobacillus, for which the name LactOBacillus faecis sp.
