Genotypic Description:
Phenotypic Characteristics: Strains are asaccharolytic and generally unreactive in biochemical tests. Gas is not produced. Metabolic end-products of metabolism are acetate propionate and isovalerate. The major cellular fatty acids are iso-C15:0 and C16:0. The mol % G+C content of the DNA is 59.4 [1].
Cultivability: Strains form small (c 0.5 mm in diameter) colonies on Columbia sheep blood agar after 5 days incubation [1].
