Tazato et al. 2015.
Gram-negative coccobacilli, 0.7-0.8 x 1.0-1.2 μm. Non-spore-forming. Non-motile.
Colonies are smooth, convex, entire, opaque, glistening and pale yellow, 2-3 mm in
diameter on nutrient agar after 48 h of incubation at 30 ºC. No growth factor is required.
Can grow at pH 5.0-10.0 (optimum 7.0-8.0). Strictly aerobic. Growth temperature 10-37
ºC (optimum 25-30 ºC). Can grow on MacConkey agar, but not on Simmons' citrate
agar. Water-soluble brown pigment on heart infusion agar containing tyrosine is not
produced.
Isolated from a black stain on the forehead of one of the ‘Asuka beauties’ (Asuka Bijin) inside the stone chamber of Takamatsuzuka
tumulus in Asuka village, Nara Prefecture, Japan.
Undetermined.

beta-galactosidase, beta-glucuronidase, alpha- and beta-glucosidase, N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase, alpha-mannosidase,
alpha-fucosidase, indole production, urease, valine arylamidase, cystine arylamidase, trypsin, alpha-chymotrypsin, acid production
from glucose.
