Abstract

The genus Pontibacter is a recent addition to the family Cytophagaceae, phylum Bacteroidetes. Previous reports of its cultivation and molecular detection are from a variety of environmental sources, including marine and desert habitats. We report the first description of a Pontibacter sp., which was initially identified as Elizabethkingia meningoseptica, isolated from a human clinical specimen. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence, unique mass spectral profile and phenotypic characterization, this isolate represents a novel species within the genus Pontibacter that has been named Pontibacter altruii, sp. nov., strain Grand Forks.
