Characterization of Propionispira arboris gen. nov. sp. nov., a nitrogen-fixing anaerobe common to wetwoods of living trees

Journal of General Microbiology 128(11): 2771-2779

Characterization of Propionispira arboris gen. nov. sp. nov., a nitrogen-fixing anaerobe common to wetwoods of living trees

A new species in the family Bacteroidaceae is described, isolated from alkaline wetwoods of poplar trees. It was a Gram-negative, non-sporing, curved rod that formed long spiral filaments, especially when grown with N2 as the sole nitrogen source. This obligate anaerobe had peritrichous flagellation and an outer-wall membranous layer. The DNA G + C content was 36.7 plus or minus 1.0 mol %.
