Two strains of a Brevibacterium-like bacterium originating from bumble-foot lesions of domestic fowls were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. The phenotypic characteristics of the bacterium were consistent with its assignment to the genus Brevibacterium although comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing showed that the organism represents a distinct subline within the genus. Chromosomal DNA-DNA pairing studies confirmed that the unidentified bacterium was genomically distinct and worthy of… CONTINUE READING
