Pediococcus argentinicus sp. nov. from Argentinean fermented wheat flour and identification of Pediococcus species by pheS, rpoA and atpA sequence analysis.


A Gram-positive, small coccus-shaped lactic acid bacterium, strain LMG 23999(T), was isolated from Argentinean wheat flour. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the phylogenetic position of the novel strain was within the genus Pediococcus, with Pediococcus stilesii, Pediococcus pentosaceus and Pediococcus acidilactici as its closest relatives (97… (More)
