A Gram-stain-positive, endospore-forming rod, designated CCUG 53201(T), was isolated from a human blood sample of a 75-year-old woman. 16S rRNA gene sequence-based phylogenetic analysis showed that strain CCUG 53201(T) clustered with the type strains of species of the genus Ornithinibacillus. Strain CCUG 53201(T) was most closely related to(More)
Two Gram-negative, non-fermentative, non-denitrifying, non-pigmented, rod-shaped bacteria that were motile by means of polar flagella, designated strains KMM 330(T) and KMM 331, were isolated from a deep-sea sponge specimen and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. The new isolates exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of 99.9 %, and their mean(More)
A polyphasic taxonomic study was performed on a group of isolates tentatively identified as Burkholderia cepacia, Ralstonia pickettii or Ralstonia paucula (formerly known as CDC group IVc-2). The isolates were mainly cultured from sputum of cystic fibrosis patients or from soil. SDS-PAGE of whole-cell proteins and AFLP fingerprinting distinguished at least(More)
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 polyphasic taxonomic study that included DNA-DNA hybridizations, DNA base ratio determinations, 16S rDNA sequence analyses, whole-cell protein and fatty acid analyses and an extensive biochemical characterization was performed on 16 strains isolated from the environment, animals and human clinical samples. The isolates belonged to the genus Burkholderia,(More)
[Pseudomonas] rubrisubalbicans, a mild plant pathogen. Herbaspirillum seropedicae, and EF group 1 strains (clustered by an immunological method) were investigated by a polyphasic approach with DNA-rRNA and DNA-DNA hybridizations and auxanography on 147 substrates. Our results show that they all belong to the genus Herbaspirillum. In addition to H.(More)
Pseudomonas facilis and Pseudomonas delafieldii are inappropriately assigned to the genus Pseudomonas. They belong to the acidovorans rRNA complex in rRNA superfamily III (i.e., the beta subclass of the Proteobacteria). The taxonomic relationships of both of these species, two groups of clinical isolates (E. Falsen [EF] group 13 and EF group 16), and(More)
A polyphasic taxonomic study including DNA-DNA reassociation experiments and an extensive biochemical characterization was performed on 14 Burkholderia isolates from moss gametophytes of nutrient-poor plant communities on the southern Baltic Sea coast in northern Germany. The strains were classified within two novel species, for which the names Burkholderia(More)
An unknown, Gram-positive, ovoid-shaped bacterium isolated from the nose of a mouse was subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic analysis. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing demonstrated that the unknown organism was a member of the family Micrococcaceae and possessed a specific phylogenetic association with Rothia dentocariosa and Stomatococcus mucilaginosus.(More)
Six novel gliding, heterotrophic, Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, aerobic, oxidase- and catalase-positive bacteria were isolated from the green alga Ulva fenestrata, sea water and a bottom sediment sample collected in the Gulf of Peter the Great, Sea of Japan. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the strains studied were members of the family(More)
