Abstract

Ten strains of an unknown Campylobacter species were isolated from the livers of spotty liver disease affected birds in Australia. They are Gram negative, microaerobic, catalase and oxidase positive and urease negative. Unlike most other species of the genus Campylobacter, most of the tested strains of this novel species hydrolyse hippurate and half of them could not reduce nitrate. All strains showed resistance, or intermediate resistance, to nalidixic acid and most of them were resistant to cephalothin. Examination of negatively stained cells under transmission electron microscopy revealed that they were S-shaped, with bipolar unsheathed flagella. Phylogenetic analyses based on the 16S rRNA gene and the heat shock protein 60 (hsp60) gene sequences indicated that the strains formed a robust clade that was clearly distinct from recognised Campylobacter species. Unusually, they have a mol% G+C of 27.9 %; lower than any previously described Campylobacter species and have less than 84% average nucleotide identity to the nearest sequenced species. Taken together, these data indicate that the strains belong to a novel Campylobacter species for which the name Campylobacter hepaticus sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain NCTC 13823T (=CIP111092T).

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 09 August 2016.
All research outputs
#10,002,941
of 15,769,522 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology
#5,877
of 7,061 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#149,484
of 267,476 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology
#89
of 145 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,769,522 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,061 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.6. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,476 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 145 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
