A strictly anaerobic, Gram-positive, short-rod/coccobacillus-shaped bacterial strain, designated 7-10-1-b(T), was isolated from the colon of a patient suffering from acute Crohn's disease. The isolate formed small, pale-white, semi-translucent colonies on solid cultivation media. The strain was catalase-positive and metabolized only a small number of carbon sources. Whole-cell fatty acids consisted predominantly of saturated fatty acids (89 %), of which 15 : 0 anteiso was the major component. The polar lipids phosphatidylglycerol and diphosphatidylglycerol as well as four glycolipids were identified. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the isolate represents a distinct lineage within the family Coriobacteriaceae and has 94.6 % identity to the type strain of [Eggerthella] hongkongensis, the phylogenetically closest bacterial species.
This species has been identified as a resident in the human gastrointestinal tract based on the phylogenetic framework of its small subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences.[PMC 4262072]
