Abstract A novel succinic acid-producing bacterium was isolated from bovine rumen. The bacterium is a non-motile, non-spore-forming, mesophilic and capnophilic gram-negative rod or coccobacillus. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA sequence and physiological analysis indicated that the strain belongs to the recently reclassified genus Mannheimia as a novel species, and has been named Mannheimia succiniciproducens MBEL55E. Under 100\% CO(2) conditions, it grows well in the pH range of 6.0-7.5 and produces succinic acid, acetic acid and formic acid at a constant ratio of 2:1:1. When M. succiniciproducensMBEL55E was cultured anaerobically in medium containing 20 g l(-1) glucose as carbon source, 13.5 g l(-1) of succinic acid was produced.
