4 Lipid and Cell-Wall Analysis in Bacterial Systematics
Progress in the biochemistry of microorganisms have revealed that cell-component analysis can be effectively applied to bacterial systematics, providing the basis of chemotaxonomy, and DNA homology data contribute to the clarification, not only of the relatedness of two organisms, but also of the evaluation of phenotypic characteristics.

Evaluation of a microplate DNA : DNA hybridization method compared with the initial renaturation method
It is concluded that the microplate method can be used as a reliable taxonomic tool and in very good correlation with the initial renaturation method. Expand
Candidatus Methanogranum caenicola: a Novel Methanogen from the Anaerobic Digested Sludge, and Proposal of Methanomassiliicoccaceae fam. nov. and Methanomassiliicoccales ord. nov., for a Methanogenic
The provisional taxonomic assignment is proposed, named Candidatus Methanogranum caenicola, for the enriched archaeon Kjm51a belonging to Group E2, and the methanogenic lineage of the class Thermoplasmata is placed in a novel order, Methanomassiliicoccales ord. nov. Expand
Ruegeria mobilis sp. nov., a member of the Alphaproteobacteria isolated in Japan and Palau.
The taxonomic positions of two bacterial strains isolated from marine environments of Japan and Palau, respectively, were determined by using a polyphasic approach and were considered to represent a novel species of the genus Ruegeria, for which the name Ruegersia mobilis sp. Expand
Chemotaxonomic characterization of a radiotolerant bacterium, Arthrobacter radiotolerans: Description of Rubrobacter radiotolerans gen. nov., comb. nov
On the basis of chemical characteristics it is suggested that Arthrobacter radiotolerans be reclassified in a new genus Rubrobacter, as Rubrobacteria radiotoleranceans comb. Expand
Vulcanisaeta distributa gen. nov., sp. nov., and Vulcanisaeta souniana sp. nov., novel hyperthermophilic, rod-shaped crenarchaeotes isolated from hot springs in Japan.
Seventeen strains of rod-shaped, heterotrophic, anaerobic, hyperthermophilic crenarchaeotes were isolated from several hot spring areas in eastern Japan, and eight representative strains were characterized further, revealing that they represented an independent lineage in the family Thermoproteaceae.

A new genus of the family Micromonosporaceae, Polymorphospora gen. nov., with description of Polymorphospora rubra sp. nov.
Two actinomycete strains were isolated from soil surrounding mangrove roots and showed chemical and phenotypic properties that were different from members of all of the other genera of this family. Expand
Transfer of pseudomonas plantarii and Pseudomonas glumae to Burkholderia as Burkholderia spp. and description of Burkholderia vandii sp. nov
Plant-associated bacteria were characterized and are discussed in relation to authentic members of the genus Pseudomonas sensu stricto and it is proposed that Pseudomanas plantarii and Pseudoms glumae should be transferred to the genus Burkholderia. Expand
Suprageneric classification of peptidoglycan group B actinomycetes by nucleotide sequencing of 5S ribosomal RNA
The sequencing and associated chemotaxonomic data provide compelling grounds for classifying actinomycetes with a group B type peptidoglycan in a single family of Microbacteriaceae fam. Expand
Hydrogenobacter acidophilus sp. nov., a Thermoacidophilic, Aerobic, Hydrogen-Oxidizing Bacterium Requiring Elemental Sulfur for Growth
A thermoacidophilic, obligately chemolithoautotrophic, aerobic, hydrogen-oxidizing bacterium, strain 3H-1T(T = type strain), was isolated from a solfataric field in Tsumagoi, Japan. This strain is aExpand
