Two isolates of a Gram-positive, non-motile, coccoid or oval-shaped anaerobic bacterium, designated strains N6H1-15 and YH1_16, were isolated from faecal samples obtained from a mature dog. Analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the isolates belonged to the Blautia coccoidesrRNA gene group (cluster XIVa) and were closely related to Blautia hansenii KCTC 5951, Blautia stercoris KCTC 5981, Blautia producta producta KCTC 3695 and B. coccoides DSM 15327, with 96.7, 94.4, 94.2 and 93.9 % sequence similarity, respectively. The two isolates contained m-diaminopimelic acid within their peptidoglycans. The major polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylglycerol, and the major fatty acids were C16 : 0 (18.5 %), C16 : 0 (18.0 %) and C18 : 1cis 9 (16.2 %). The predominant metabolic end products of glucose fermentation were acetic and lactic acids, and the G+C content was 44.2 mol%. Thus, the polyphasic data suggest that the two new isolates represent a new species, proposed as Blautia argi sp. nov. The type strain is N6H1-15 (=KCTC 15426=JCM 31394).

A species of gram-negative, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria originally classified within the BACTEROIDES genus. This bacterium produces a cell-bound, oxygen-sensitive collagenase and is isolated from the human mouth.
A species of gram-negative, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria originally classified within the BACTEROIDES genus. This bacterium is a common commensal in the gingival crevice and is often isolated from cases of gingivitis and other purulent lesions related to the mouth.
A species of gram-negative, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria originally classified within the BACTEROIDES genus. This bacterium has been isolated from the mouth, urine, feces, and infections of the mouth, soft tissue, respiratory tract, urogenital tract, and intestinal tract. It is pathogenic, but usually in association with other kinds of organisms.
A genus of gram-negative, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria capable of reducing sulfur compounds to hydrogen sulfide. Organisms are isolated from anaerobic mud of fresh and salt water, animal intestines, manure, and feces.
The phenomenon by which a temperate phage incorporates itself into the DNA of a bacterial host, establishing a kind of symbiotic relation between PROPHAGE and bacterium which results in the perpetuation of the prophage in all the descendants of the bacterium. Upon induction (VIRUS ACTIVATION) by various agents, such as ultraviolet radiation, the phage is released, which then becomes virulent and lyses the bacterium.
