A pale-pink strain (CCUG 53370(T)) from water was investigated by a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The cells stained Gram-positive and were rod-shaped and non-spore-forming. Analyses using the 16S rRNA gene sequence of the isolate showed that the organism belongs to the genus Deinococcus, with the highest sequence similarities to the type strains of(More)
A pale-pink strain (CC-FR2-10T) from the rhizosphere of the sacred tree Ficus religiosa L. in Taiwan was investigated by using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The cells were Gram-positive, rod-shaped and non-spore-forming. Phylogenetic analyses using the 16S rRNA gene sequence of the isolate indicated that the organism belongs to the genus Deinococcus, the(More)
A Gram-negative, non-motile, non-spore-forming coccoid bacterium (strain BO1(T)) was isolated recently from a breast implant infection of a 71-year-old female patient with clinical signs of brucellosis. Affiliation of strain BO1(T) to the genus Brucella was confirmed by means of polyamine pattern, polar lipid profile, fatty acid profile, quinone system,(More)
A polyphasic study was undertaken to clarify the taxonomic position of endospore-forming strains 433-D9, 433-E17 and 121-X1. BOX-PCR-generated fingerprints indicated that they may be members of a single species. 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity demonstrated that a representative of this group, 433-D9, is affiliated closely with Bacillus arvi DSM 16317(T)(More)
A Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium (CC-JY-1(T)) was isolated on nutrient agar from a soil sample collected from an oil-contaminated site located in Chyai county, Taiwan. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis demonstrated that this isolate is unique, showing 96.7 % sequence similarity to the type strain of Arenimonas donghaensis and similarities of 93.0-93.8 %(More)
Two Gram-negative, non-motile, non-spore-forming, coccoid bacteria (strains CCM 4915(T) and CCM 4916), isolated from clinical specimens of the common vole Microtus arvalis during an epizootic in the Czech Republic in 2001, were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. On the basis of 16S rRNA (rrs) and recA gene sequence similarities, both isolates were(More)
A denitrifying bacterium, designated strain FS(T), was isolated from anoxic digested sludge on oestradiol [17beta-oestra-1,3,5(10)-triene-3,17-diol] or testosterone (17beta-hydroxyandrost-4-en-3-one) as the sole source of carbon and energy with nitrate as the electron acceptor. Strain FS(T) represents the first known bacterium to grow anaerobically on both(More)
Two Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacteria, PR17(T) and DSM 7216(T), isolated from the potato rhizosphere and an industrial environment, respectively, were studied for their taxonomic allocation. By rrs (16S rRNA) gene sequencing, these strains were shown to belong to the Alphaproteobacteria, most closely related to Ochrobactrum(More)
Strain FhSp1T, isolated from human blood in Spain in 2003, was studied for its taxonomic allocation. By 16S rRNA and recA gene sequencing, the strain was shown to belong to the genus Francisella. In the 16S rRNA gene sequence, Francisella sp. FhSp1T shared similarity of more than 99% with strains of Francisella tularensis subspecies and Francisella novicida(More)
In the course of this study, examinations were carried out to develop a PCR-based test which allows discrimination of Brucella species and biovars not targeted by the currently established gel-based PCR assays. Appropriate primers were designed based on specific deletions and insertions in the different Brucella genomes as determined by RAPD-PCR and(More)
