Presence of one linear and one circular chromosome in the Agrobacterium tumefaciens C58 genome.
Analysis of the entire Agrobacterium tumefaciens C58 genome by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) reveals four replicons: two large molecules of 3,000 and 2,100 kb, the 450-kb cryptic plasmid,Expand

Description of 'Synergistetes' phyl. nov. and emended description of the phylum 'Deferribacteres' and of the family Syntrophomonadaceae, phylum 'Firmicutes'.
The number of bacterial phyla has greatly increased in the past decade. Among them, a candidate division named 'Synergistes' was proposed in a phylogenetic study on the global diversity of bacteria.Expand

Chromosome-Encoded Class D β-Lactamase OXA-23 in Proteus mirabilis
ABSTRACT Ten nonrepetitive Proteus mirabilis isolates, which were collected over 4 years (1996 to 1999) at the teaching hospital of Clermont-Ferrand, France, produced class D carbapenemase OXA-23.Expand

Differences in chromosome number and genome rearrangements in the genus Brucella
We have studied the genomic structure and constructed the SpeI, PacI and I‐CeuI restriction maps of the four biovars of the pathogenic bacterium Brucella suis. B. suis biovar 1 has two chromosomes ofExpand
