Segatella copri T
Six strains (CB7T, CB18, CB23, CB26, CB28 and CB35T) were isolated from human faeces. Based on phylogenetic analysis, phenotypic characteristics, cellular fatty acid profiles and menaquinone profiles, these strains could be included within the genusPrevotellaand made up two clusters. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that five strains were most closely related toPrevotella veroralis, sharing about 92 % sequence similarity; the remaining strain was most closely related toPrevotella shahii
