Abstract [en]

During a study of the prevalence of Campylobacter jejuni in black-headed gulls (Larus ridibundus) in Sweden, three isolates were initially identified as Campylobacter lari. Further characterization by both AFLP and whole-cell protein SDS-PAGE analysis revealed that they formed a distinct group in the Campylobacter genus. This unique position was confirmed by phenotypic characterization, 16S rRNA and hsp60 gene sequence analysis, and DNA-DNA hybridisations. The combined data confirm that these isolates represent a novel species within the genus Campylobacter, for which the name Campylobacter volucris sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is LMG 24380T (=CCUG 57498T).
