Abstract

16S rRNA gene sequencing was performed on the species Lactobacillus minutus, Lactobacillus rimae and Streptococcus parvulus in order to clarify their taxonomic position. Based on comparative sequence analyses these organisms represent a hitherto unknown line of descent within the lactic acid group of bacteria for which a new genus, Atopobium gen. nov., is proposed.
