The results of a study comparing the chemotaxonomic characteristics and phylogenetic positions of members of the genus Arcanobacterium indicated that the genus was not monophyletic and, therefore, was in need of taxonomic revision. Phylogenetically, the genus Arcanobacterium consisted of two distinct lines; a group comprising the species Arcanobacterium(More)
A novel Gram-positive, aerobic, catalase-positive, filamentous micro-organism, designated strain IMMIB L-1269(T), originating from sputum was characterized using phenotypic and molecular taxonomic methods. It showed cell-wall chemotype III, phospholipid type PII (with phosphatidylethanolamine as the diagnostic phospholipid) and contained an unsaturated(More)
We describe a new genus of mesophilic actinomycetes, for which we propose the name Lentzea. The strains of this genus form abundant aerial hyphae that fragment into rod-shaped elements. Whole-cell hydrolysates contain the meso isomer of diaminopimelic acid and no characteristic sugar (wall chemotype III). The phospholipid pattern type is type PII(More)
The taxonomic status of a bacterium isolated from a perianal swab of a patient with a bone marrow transplant was characterized using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Chemotaxonomic investigations revealed the presence of cell wall chemotype IV, short chain mycolic acids that co-migrated with those extracted from members of the genus Dietzia, and a(More)
Data from chemotaxonomic and 16S ribosomal DNA sequence analyses of an isolate obtained from the sputum of a kidney transplant patient identified the isolate as a member of the genus Nocardiopsis. DNA-DNA hybridization data, as well as physiological characteristics, indicated that the isolate represents a new species of the genus Nocardiopsis, designated(More)
A bacterial isolate obtained from soil from a municipal landfill site in India was characterized using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The colonies of the isolate were found to be yellow and highly mucoid. Comparative analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that this isolate constitutes a distinct phyletic line within the genus Lysobacter, displaying(More)
A channel-forming protein was identified in cell wall extracts of the Gram-positive, strictly aerobic bacterium Nocardia farcinica. The cell wall porin was purified to homogeneity and had an apparent molecular mass of about 87 kDa on tricine-containing SDS-PAGE. When the 87 kDa protein was boiled for a longer time in sodium dodecylsulphate (SDS) it(More)
Four Gram-negative bacterial strains, recovered from clay soils cultivated with different crops in the Netherland, were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study in order to clarify their taxonomic status. Comparative analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that they belong to the genus Lysobacter and to be highly related to the type strains of L.(More)
A lipophilic coryneform bacterium isolated from a blood culture from a patient with signs of septicaemia was characterized by means of phenotypic and molecular taxonomic methods. Chemotaxonomic investigations revealed the presence of cell-wall chemotype IV and short-chain mycolic acids, which are consistent with the genus Corynebacterium. The isolate was(More)
Chemotaxonomic and 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses of four bacterial strains isolated from clinical material clearly demonstrated that these bacteria belong to the genus Nocardia. DNA-DNA hybridization data as well as the physiological characteristics of the isolates indicated that they are closely related and belong to a single species that differs from(More)
