Abstract
A slowly growing microaerophilic Helicobacter strain was isolated from the ceca and fecal pellets of Korean wild mice (Mus musculus molossinus). This bacterial strain possessed a pair of nonsheathed bipolar flagella, was positive for urease, catalase and oxidase, and reduced nitrate to nitrite. It proved susceptible to nalidixic acid and resistant to cephalodine, and did not hydrolyze hippurate. On the basis of phenotypic characteristics and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, the isolate represents a new species of the genus Helicobacter, for which the name Helicobacter muricola sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain of the new species is w-06T (GenBank accession number AF264783).
