The phylogenetic position and physiology of strain KoTa2T (T = type strain), which was previously classified as a Ruminococcus pasteurii strain, were studied. A determination of the 16S ribosomal DNA sequence of this taxon revealed its position within the radiation of the gram-positive lactic acid bacteria having low DNA G+C contents and that it is closely related to the genus Carnobacterium. L-Lactic acid was produced from glucose by a fructose-1,6-bisphosphate-activated lactate dehydrogenase… CONTINUE READING
