Abstract

We define two new species in the genus Staphylococcus that are phenotypically similar to and have near identical 16S rRNA sequences to S. aureus. However, compared to S. aureus and each other, S. argenteus sp. nov. (type strain MSHR1132T =DSM 28299T, =SSI 89.005T) and S. schweitzeri sp. nov. (type strain FSA084T =DSM 28300T, =SSI 89.004T) demonstrate: 1) at a whole genome level considerable phylogenetic distance, lack of admixture, average nucleotide identity < 95%, and inferred DNA-DNA hybridization <70%; 2) different profiles as determined by MALDI-TOF MS; 3) a non-pigmented phenotype for S. argenteus sp. nov.; 4) S. schweitzeri sp. nov. is not detected by standard nucA PCR; 5) distinct peptidoglycan types compared to S. aureus; 6) a separate ecological niche for S. schweitzeri sp. nov.; and 7) a distinct clinical disease profile for S. argenteus sp. nov. compared to S. aureus.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 10. 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 05 April 2022.
All research outputs
#2,753,020
of 21,055,026 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology
#1,309
of 8,419 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#44,854
of 341,852 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology
#2
of 136 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,055,026 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 86th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,419 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 5.0. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its peers.
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 341,852 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 136 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% of its contemporaries.
