Abstract

Pa.ra.scar.do’vi.a. N.L. fem. n. Parascardovia named after Vittorio Scardovi, an Italian microbiologist who has made many contributions to our knowledge of bifidobacteria Gram-positive, non-acid-fast. non-spore-forming. non-motile small, slender rods of variable shape. Anaerobic. Saccharoclastic. Glucose is degraded exclusively and characteristically by the fructose-6-phosphate (F6PPK-EC 4.1.2.22) shunt (see Bifidobacterium genus description) The fermentation products from glucose are acetic acid and L-(+)-lactic acid at the molar ratio of 2: 1. Dextran is fermented. Found in human dental caries and plaque. 16S rRNA and HSP60 gene sequence analyses showed that Parascardovia represented a new genus in the family Bifidobacteriaceae. The type and only species is Parascardovia denticolens. The mol % of G + C of the DNA is: 55 ± 1 (Tm). Type species: Parascardovia denticolens (Crociani, Biavati, Alessandrini, Chiarini and Scardovi 1996, 564VP) Jian and Dong 2002, 809VP
