Alicyclobacillus hesperidum sp. nov. and a related genomic species from solfataric soils of São Miguel in the Azores.
On the basis of the phylogenetic analysis, physiological and biochemical characteristics, and fatty acid composition the name Alicyclobacillus hesperidum is proposed for the species represented by strains FR-11T and FR-1b; a formal name for the new genomic species represented in these organisms is not proposed at this time.
A Gene from the Mesophilic Bacterium Dehalococcoides ethenogenes Encodes a Novel Mannosylglycerate Synthase
The characterized mesophilic and bifunctional mannosylglycerate synthase encoded in the genome of the bacterium Dehalococcoides ethenogenes accumulated MG, confirming that this gene product can synthesize this compatible solute and arguing for a role in osmotic adjustment in the natural host.
Albidovulum inexpectatum gen. nov., sp. nov., a Nonphotosynthetic and Slightly Thermophilic Bacterium from a Marine Hot Spring That Is Very Closely Related to Members of the Photosynthetic Genus
It is proposed that strains FRR-10T andFRR-11 should be classified as a new species of a novel genus, Albidovulum inexpectatum, representing, at present, the most thermophilic organism within the α-3 subclass of the Proteobacteria.
