Abstract

A polyphasic taxonomic study that included DNA-rRNA hybridizations, DNA-DNA hybridizations, DNA base ratio measurements, whole-cell protein and fatty acid analyses, and an examination of classical phenotypic characteristics was used to classify human and veterinary isolates that resemble Bordetella avium.
12 poultry isolates and 2 human isolates were assigned to a new species, for which the name Bordetella hinzii is proposed. The position of this organism in the family Alcaligenaceae and various genotypic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics are described.
