Globicatella sanguis gen.nov., sp.nov., a new gram-positive catalase-negative bacterium from human sources.

Author information

Department of Microbiology, Reading Laboratory, UK.


Phylogenetic studies were performed on some Gram-positive catalase-negative cocci from human clinical sources of uncertain taxonomic position. 16S rRNA sequence analysis demonstrated that the isolates represent a hitherto unknown line of descent within the low G+C Gram-positive bacteria for which the name Globicatella sanguis gen.nov., sp.nov. is proposed.
