Abstract
Two strains of Acetobacter sp., LTH 2460Tand LTH 2458T, have been isolated from running red wine and cider vinegar fermentations, respectively. Taxonomic characteristics of the isolates were investigated. Comparative analysis of the 16S rRNA sequences revealed > 99% similarity between strain LTH 2460Tand the type strains of the related species Acetobacter europaeus and Acetobacter xylinus and between strain LTH 2458Tand Acetobacter pasteurianus. On the other hand, low levels of DNA relatedness (< 34%) were determined in DNA-DNA similarity studies. This relatedness below the species level was consistent with specific physiological characteristics permitting clear...
