A non-lipophilic, coryneform bacterium, isolated from a patient's wound obtained from a dog bite, was characterized by phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and molecular genetic methods. Chemotaxonomic features suggested assignment of the unknown bacterium to the genus Corynebacterium. The isolate exhibited the following peculiar features which made it possible to differentiate it phenotypically from all other medically relevant corynebacteria: older colonies exhibited a 'spoke-wheel' macroscopic… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Corynebacterium canis sp. nov., isolated from a wound infection caused by a dog bite.
TLDR
It is proposed that the isolate isolated from a patient's wound caused by a dog bite should be classified as a novel species, Corynebacterium canis sp.
Corynebacterium mustelae sp. nov., isolated from a ferret with lethal sepsis.
TLDR
It is proposed that the ferret isolate should be classified within a novel species, Corynebacterium mustelae sp.
Corynebacterium hadale sp. nov. isolated from hadopelagic water of the New Britain Trench.
TLDR
The combined genotypic and phenotypic data indicated that strain NBT06-6T represents a novel species of the genus Corynebacterium, for which the name CoryneBacterium hadale sp.
Non Diphtheritic Corynebacteria (NDC) and Their Clinical Significance: Clinical Microbiologist’s Perspective
TLDR
The potential pathogenic nature of NDC, which warrants their identification and prompt reporting when isolated from human clinical specimens, is examined.
Corynebacterium marinum sp. nov. isolated from coastal sediment.
TLDR
A taxonomic study was performed on strain D7015T, which was isolated from coastal sediment close to a coal-fired power station in Qingdao, China, and was sufficiently different from recognized species of the genus Corynebacterium to be considered to represent a novel species.
Complete Genome Sequence of the Type Strain Corynebacterium epidermidicanis DSM 45586, Isolated from the Skin of a Dog Suffering from Pruritus
TLDR
The annotation revealed 2,466 protein-coding regions, including genes for surface-anchored proteins with Cna B-type or bacterial Ig-like domains and for an adhesive SpaABC-type pilus with similarity to fimbrial subunits of Corynebacterium resistens DSM 45100.
Genome-Based Taxonomic Classification of the Phylum Actinobacteria
TLDR
Good congruence was found between the discontinuous distribution of phenotypic properties and taxa delineated in the phylogenetic trees though diverse non-monophyletic taxa appeared to be based on the use of plesiomorphic character states as diagnostic features, underline the pitfalls inherent in phylogenies based upon single gene sequences.
12 The Family Corynebacteriaceae
TLDR
Members of the family Corynebacteriaceae are found in diverse environments and some species are used in industrial applications and food production, whereas other species are serious pathogens of humans or domestic animals.

TLDR
A lipophilic coryneform bacterium isolated from a blood culture from a patient with signs of septicaemia was characterized by means of phenotypic and molecular taxonomic methods and it was demonstrated that the isolate belonged phylogenetically to the genus Corynebacterium.
Corynebacterium ciconiae sp. nov., isolated from the trachea of black storks (Ciconia nigra).
TLDR
It is proposed that the unknown isolates from black storks represent a novel species within the genus Corynebacterium, for which the CoryneBacterium ciconiae sp.
Phenotypic and Phylogenetic Characterization of a New Corynebacterium Species from Dogs: Description ofCorynebacterium auriscanis sp. nov
TLDR
It is proposed that the unknown bacterium isolated from clinical specimens from dogs be classified as a new species, Corynebacterium auriscanis, which is close to but distinct from C. falsenii, C. jeikeium, and C. urealyticum.
Corynebacterium caspium sp. nov., from a Caspian seal (Phoca caspica).
TLDR
It is proposed that the unknown bacterium isolated from a Caspian seal should be classified as the type strain of a novel species of the genus Corynebacterium, CoryneBacterium caspium sp.
Corynebacterium durum sp. nov., from human clinical specimens.
TLDR
The analysis of the nearly complete 16S rRNA gene sequence of IBS G15036T indicated that this new species represents a distinct taxon within the genus Corynebacterium, and can be identified on the basis of its colony morphology, fermentation of sugars, and enzymatic activities.
Corynebacterium thomssenii sp. nov., a Corynebacterium with N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase activity from human clinical specimens.
TLDR
A strain of a previously undescribed non-lipophilic coryneform bacterium isolated from pleural fluids of a patient with chronic renal failure, stroke and pneumonia represented a new species within the genus Corynebacterium, for which the name CoryneBacterium thomssenii sp.
Corynebacterium testudinoris sp. nov., from a tortoise, and Corynebacterium felinum sp. nov., from a Scottish wild cat.
TLDR
Two unknown gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria isolated from a tortoise and a Scottish wild cat were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic analysis and it was confirmed that the unknown isolates were members of the genus Corynebacterium.
Coryneform Gram-Positive Rods
TLDR
The 16S rRNA gene sequencing data demonstrate that the genera Corynebacterium and Turicella are more closely related to the partially acid-fast bacteria and to the genus Mycobacterium than to the other coryneform organisms covered in the chapter.
Characteristics of CDC group 1 and group 1-like coryneform bacteria isolated from clinical specimens
TLDR
Gas-liquid chromatography of volatile and nonvolatile fatty acids as well as cellular fatty acid patterns and the composition of cell wall components suggest that CDC group 1 and group 1-like coryneform bacteria do not belong to the genus Corynebacterium but possibly to the species Actinomyces or Arcanobacterium.
Diversity within Reference Strains of Corynebacterium matruchotii Includes Corynebacterium durum and a Novel Organism
TLDR
Analysis of seven strains procured from the American Type Culture Collection revealed that three types of organisms have been deposited in the ATCC as C. matruchotii, which indicates that the colonial morphology and biochemical reactions of the C. durum strains are more diverse than originally reported.
