Burkholderia sabiae sp. nov., isolated from root nodules of Mimosa caesalpiniifolia

Abstract : Two rhizobial strains, Br3407 T and Br3405, were isolated from nitrogen-fixing nodules on the roots of Mimosa caesalpiniifolia, a legume tree native to Brazil. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities, both strains were shown previously to belong to the genus Burkholderia. A polyphasic approach, including DNA–DNA hybridizations, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of whole-genome DNA profiles, whole-cell protein analyses, fatty acid methyl ester analysis and extensive biochemical characterization, was used to clarify the taxonomic position of these strains further; the strains are here classified within a novel species, for which the name Burkholderia sabiae sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is strain Br3407 T (5LMG 24235 T 5BCRC 17587 T).
