When should a DDH experiment be mandatory in microbial taxonomy?
Whether or not, and in which situations, this threshold value might be too conservative, is investigated, which means up to half of the currently conducted DDH experiments could safely be omitted without a significant risk for wrongly differentiated species.
Chryseobacterium hispalense sp. nov., a plant-growth-promoting bacterium isolated from a rainwater pond in an olive plant nursery, and emended descriptions of Chryseobacterium defluvii,
A novel non-motile, Gram-staining-negative, yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated AG13(T), isolated from a rain water pond at a plant nursery in Spain and characterized as a plant-growth-promoting
Pedobacter cryoconitis sp. nov., a facultative psychrophile from alpine glacier cryoconite.
A facultatively psychrophilic, Gram-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped strain, A37(T), was isolated from alpine glacier cryoconite and showed activities of oxidase, catalase, DNase, protease (gelatin, casein), amylase, beta-glucosidase and beta-lactamase and degraded oil hydrocarbons.
The phylogenetic position of Serratia, Buttiauxella and some other genera of the family Enterobacteriaceae.
The phylogenetic relationships of the type strains of 38 species from 15 genera of the family Enterobacteriaceae were investigated by comparative 16S rDNA analysis, finding that Buttiauxella and Citrobacter share type strains greater than 99%.
Characterisation, genome size and genetic manipulation of the myxobacterium Sorangium cellulosum So ce56
S. cellulosum So ce56 was phenotypically and genotypically analysed in order to evaluate whether this strain can be used in a comprehensive genome project as a representative of the secondary metabolite-producing myxobacteria, and was found to have various advantageous features.
Characterization of Vibrio viscosus and Vibrio wodanis isolated at different geographical locations: a proposal for reclassification of Vibrio viscosus as Moritella viscosa comb. nov.
The results revealed that the V. viscosus and V. wodanis strains are heterogeneous genotypically and phenotypically, and a reclassification of Vibrio Viscosus as Moritella viscosa comb is proposed.
The correlation between morphological and phylogenetic classification of myxobacteria.
A phylogenetic analysis of 16S rDNAs performed on 54 myxobacterial strains confirmed the deep trifurcation of the order Myxococcales and confirmed the genus status of 'Corallococcus', previously 'Chondrococcus' within the family MyxOCoccaceae.
Reclassification of strain CCM 132, previously classified as Kocuria varians, as Kocuria carniphila sp. nov.
A Gram-positive actinobacterium, previously classified as Kocuria varians, was subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study and a novel species, KOCuria carniphila sp.
Kroppenstedtia eburnea gen. nov., sp. nov., a thermoactinomycete isolated by environmental screening, and emended description of the family Thermoactinomycetaceae Matsuo et al. 2006 emend. Yassin et
Based on the chemotaxonomic results and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, the isolate is proposed to represent a novel genus and species, Kroppenstedtia eburnea gen. sp.
Relationship of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens clades associated with strains DSM 7T and FZB42T: a proposal for Bacillus amyloliquefaciens subsp. amyloliquefaciens subsp. nov. and Bacillus
The ability of a group of Bacillus strains closely related to strain FZB42(T) to colonize Arabidopsis roots is demonstrated and two novel subspecies are proposed, designated B. amyloliquefaciens subsp.
