Lentzea kentuckyensis sp. nov., of equine origin.
PMID : 17684256 DOI : 10.1099/ijs.0.64245-0
A novel actinomycete, designated strain LDDC 2876-05(T), was isolated from an equine placenta during the course of routine diagnostic tests for nocardioform placentitis. In a preliminary study, the strain was observed to be phylogenetically distinct from the genera Crossiella and Amycolatopsis and probably a member of the genus Lentzea. A polyphasic study of strain LDDC 2876-05(T) confirmed its identification as a member of Lentzea on the basis of its chemotaxonomic and morphological similarity to all of the known species of the genus. Moreover, the strain could be distinguished from other species with validly published names on the basis of its phylogenetic and physiological characteristics and its fatty acid profile. Therefore strain LDDC 2876-05(T) represents a novel species of the genus Lentzea, for which the name Lentzea kentuckyensis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is LDDC 2876-05(T) (=NRRL B-24416(T) =DSM 44909(T)).
