Abstract

Morphological, biochemical and molecular genetic studies were carried out on an unknown non-spore-forming, Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacterium that was isolated from dog faeces. The bacterium grew under strictly anaerobic conditions, was asaccharolytic, and possessed a relatively high G + C content of 61 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing showed that the unidentified bacterium was a member of the family Coriobacteriaceae and represents a hitherto unknown subline within the genus Slackia. Based on the presented findings, a novel species, Slackia faecicanis sp. nov., is described. The type strain of Slackia faecicanis is 5WC12(T) (= CCUG 48399(T) = CIP 108281(T)).
