  • Achromobacter veterisilvae sp nov from a mixed hydrogen oxidizing bacteria enrichment reactor for microbial protein production
    International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology, 2020
    Co-Authors: Charles Dumolin, Charlotte Peeters, Margo Cnockaert, Elham Ehsani, Guillaume Tahon, Evelien De Canck, Nico Boon, Peter Vandamme
    Abstract:

    Strain LMG 30378(T) was isolated from a hydrogen-oxidizing bacteria enrichment reactor inoculated with forest soil. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that this strain belonged to the genus Achromobacter. Multilocus sequence analysis combined with sequence analysis of a 765 bp nrdA gene fragment both showed Achromobacter agilis LMG 3411(T) and Achromobacter denitrificans LMG 1231(T) to be the closest-related neighbours to strain LMG 30378(T). Genome sequence analysis revealed a draft genome of 6.81 Mb with a G+C content of 67.2 mol%. In silico DNA-DNA hybridization with A. denitrificans LMG 1231(T) and A. agilis LMG 3411(T) showed 42.7 and 42.5% similarity, respectively, confirming that strain LMG 30378(T) represented a novel Achromobacter species. Phenotypic and metabolic characterization revealed acid phosphatase activity and the absence of phosphoamidase activity as distinctive features. The draft genome composes all necessary metabolic components to fix carbon dioxide and to oxidize molecular hydrogen, suggesting that strain LMG 30378(T) is a key organism in the enrichment reactor. Together, these data demonstrate that strain LMG 30378(T) represents a novel species of the genus Achromobacter, for which the name Achromobacter veterisilvae sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is LMG 30378T (=CCUG 71558(T)).

    Abstract:

    The phenotypic and genotypic characteristics of a historical collection of strains identified as Achromobacter denitrificanswere examined. Sequence analysis of a 765 bp nrdA gene fragment revealed that eight of these strains belonged to the recently described Achromobacter aegrifaciens, Achromobacter mucicolens, and Achromobacter insolitus, and that one strain belonged to Achromobacter xylosoxidans. The analysis also suggested the presence of four novel species of the genus Achromobacter among the remaining strains. The latter was confirmed by multilocus sequence analysis of concatenated nusA, eno, rpoB, gltB, lepA, nuoL andnrdA gene fragments and extensive genotypic and phenotypic characterization. We propose to name these novel species as Achromobacter agilis sp. nov., nom. rev. (type strain LMG 3411T=CCUG 62454T), Achromobacter pestifer sp. nov., nom. rev. (type strain LMG 3431T=CCUG 61959T) , Achromobacter kerstersii sp. nov. (type strain LMG 3441T=CCUG 62449T) and Achromobacter deleyi sp. nov. (type strain LMG 3458T=CCUG 62433T).

  • Reclassification of Achromobacter spiritinus vandamme et al. 2013 as a later heterotypic synonym of Achromobacter marplatensis Gomila et al. 2011
    International journal of systematic and evolutionary microbiology, 2016
    Co-Authors: Peter Vandamme, Margarita Gomila, Charlotte Peeters, Margo Cnockaert, Theodore Spilker, Edward R. B. Moore, John J. Lipuma
    Abstract:

    A repeat multi-locus sequence analysis (MLSA) of concatenated nusA, eno, rpoB, gltB, lepA, nuoL and nrdA sequences of strains classified as Achromobacter marplatensis was performed. The results revealed that earlier reported sequence data of the proposed type strain were erroneous, and that the corrected concatenated sequence divergence between the A. marplatensis LMG 26219T (=CCUG 56371T) sequence type and that of strains of Achromobacter spiritinus was well below the 2.1% threshold value that delineates species of the genus Achromobacter. These results therefore demonstrated that strains which were classified as A. spiritinus should be reclassified as A. marplatensis and that the name Achromobacter spiritinus should no longer be used. An emendation of the description of Achromobacter marplatensis is warranted.

  • Classification of Achromobacter genogroups 2, 5, 7 and 14 as Achromobacter insuavis sp. nov., Achromobacter aegrifaciens sp. nov., Achromobacter anxifer sp. nov. and Achromobacter dolens sp. nov., respectively
    Systematic and applied microbiology, 2013
    Co-Authors: Peter Vandamme, Liselott Svensson-stadler, Charlotte Peeters, Margo Cnockaert, Kurt Houf, Theodore Spilker, Edward R. B. Moore, John J. Lipuma
    Abstract:

    The phenotypic and genotypic characteristics of seventeen Achromobacter strains representing MLST genogroups 2, 5, 7 and 14 were examined. Although genogroup 2 and 14 strains shared a DNA-DNA hybridization level of about 70%, the type strains of both genogroups differed in numerous biochemical characteristics and all genogroup 2 and 14 strains could by distinguished by nitrite reduction, denitrification and growth on acetamide. Given the MLST sequence divergence which identified genogroups 2 and 14 as clearly distinct populations, the availability of nrdA sequence analysis as a single locus identification tool for all Achromobacter species and genogroups, and the differential phenotypic characteristics, we propose to formally classify Achromobacter genogroups 2, 5, 7 and 14 as four novel Achromobacter species for which we propose the names Achromobacter insuavis sp. nov. (with strain LMG 26845(T) [=CCUG 62426(T)] as the type strain), Achromobacter aegrifaciens sp. nov. (with strain LMG 26852(T) [=CCUG 62438(T)] as the type strain), Achromobacter anxifer sp. nov. (with strain LMG 26857(T) [=CCUG 62444(T)] as the type strain), and Achromobacter dolens sp. nov. (with strain LMG 26840(T) [=CCUG 62421(T)] as the type strain).

  • Genotypic and Phenotypic Applications for the Differentiation and Species-Level Identification of Achromobacter for Clinical Diagnoses
    , 2014

    Abstract:

    The Achromobacter is a genus in the family Alcaligenaceae, comprising fifteen species isolated from different sources, including clinical samples. The ability to detect and correctly identify Achromobacter species, particularly A. xylosoxidans, and differentiate them from other phenotypically similar and genotypically related Gram-negative, aerobic, non-fermenting species is important for patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), as well as for nosocomial and other opportunistic infections. Traditional phenotypic profile-based analyses have been demonstrated to be inadequate for reliable identifications of isolates of Achromobacter species and genotypic-based assays, relying upon comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses are not able to insure definitive identifications of Achromobacter species, due to the inherently conserved nature of the gene. The uses of alternative methodologies to enable high-resolution differentiation between the species in the genus are needed. A comparative multi-locus sequence analysis (MLSA) of four selected ‘house-keeping’ genes (atpD, gyrB, recA, and rpoB) assessed the individual gene sequences for their potential in developing a reliable, rapid and cost-effective diagnostic protocol for Achromobacter species identifications. The analysis of the type strains of the species of the genus and 46 strains of Achromobacter species showed congruence between the cluster analyses derived from the individual genes. The MLSA gene sequences exhibited different levels of resolution in delineating the validly published Achromobacter species and elucidated strains that represent new genotypes and probable new species of the genus. Our results also suggested that the recently described A. spritinus is a later heterotypic synonym of A. marplatensis. Strains were analyzed, using whole-cell Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time-Of-Flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS), as an alternative phenotypic profile-based method with the potential to support the identifications determined by the genotypic DNA sequence-based MLSA. The MALDI-TOF MS data showed good accordance in strain groupings and identifications by the MLSA data.
