Intrageneric relationships among Micromonospora species deduced from gyrB-based phylogeny and DNA relatedness.
The phylogenetic structure of genus Micromonospora within actinomycetes was examined by analysing the gyrB sequences of 15 validly described species and four subspecies. All but one of theExpand

Differentiation of Phylogenetically Related Slowly Growing Mycobacteria by Their gyrB Sequences
ABSTRACT The conventional methods for identifying mycobacterial species are based on their phenotypic characterization. Since some problematic species are slow growers, their taxonomy takes severalExpand

Molecular characterization of long direct repeat (LDR) sequences expressing a stable mRNA encoding for a 35‐amino‐acid cell‐killing peptide and a cis‐encoded small antisense RNA in Escherichia coli
Genome sequence analyses of Escherichia coli K‐12 revealed four copies of long repetitive elements. These sequences are designated as long direct repeat (LDR) sequences. Three of the repeats (LDR‐A,Expand

Alicyclobacillus pomorum sp. nov., a novel thermo-acidophilic, endospore-forming bacterium that does not possess omega-alicyclic fatty acids, and emended description of the genus Alicyclobacillus.
A thermo-acidophilic endospore-forming bacterium was isolated from a mixed fruit juice. The organism, strain 3A(T), was rod-shaped, grew aerobically at 30-60 degrees C (optimum 45-50 degrees C), pHExpand

Ruegeria mobilis sp. nov., a member of the Alphaproteobacteria isolated in Japan and Palau.
The taxonomic positions of two bacterial strains, MBIC01146(T) and MBIC01099, isolated from marine environments of Japan and Palau, respectively, were determined by using a polyphasic approach. TheExpand

Comparison of gyrB gene sequences, 16S rRNA gene sequences and DNA-DNA hybridization in the Bacillus subtilis group.
The Bacillus subtilis group comprises eight closely related species that are indistinguishable from one another by 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis. Therefore, the gyrB gene, which encodes the subunitExpand
