Taxonomic dissection of the genus Micrococcus: Kocuria gen. nov., Nesterenkonia gen. nov., Kytococcus gen. nov., Dermacoccus gen. nov., and Micrococcus Cohn 1872 gen. emend.
The results of a phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic analysis of the genus Micrococcus indicated that it is significantly heterogeneous and that the only species that remain in the genus are the closely related phylogenetically but differ in some chemotAXonomic properties.
Gracilibacillus gen. nov., with description of Gracilibacillus halotolerans gen. nov., sp. nov.; transfer of Bacillus dipsosauri to Gracilibacillus dipsosauri comb. nov., and Bacillus salexigens to
On the basis of the 16S rDNA data, chemotaxonomy and the physiology of strain NNT, it is proposed that this organism is a member of a new species, within a new genus, for which the name Gracilibacillus halotolerans is proposed.
Agrococcus jenensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a new genus of actinomycetes with diaminobutyric acid in the cell wall.
Two strains of a new gram-positive coryneform bacterium isolated from soil and from a sandstone surface are described and it is revealed that this strain represents a new genus belonging to the group of actinomycetes that have diaminobutyric acid in their peptidoglycans.
Roseovarius tolerans gen. nov., sp. nov., a budding bacterium with variable bacteriochlorophyll a production from hypersaline Ekho Lake.
Morphological, physiological and genotypic differences to these previously described and distinct genera support the description of a new genus and a new species, Roseovarius tolerans gen. nov, based on isolates from Ekho Lake.
Demetria terragena gen. nov., sp. nov., a new genus of actinomycetes isolated from compost soil.
It is suggested that strain HKI 0089 should be classified in a new genus and species, for which the name Demetria terragena is proposed, on the basis of the results of taxonomically and phylogenetically studied.
Staleya guttiformis gen. nov., sp. nov. and Sulfitobacter brevis sp. nov., alpha-3-Proteobacteria from hypersaline, heliothermal and meromictic antarctic Ekho Lake.
Morphological, physiological and genotypic differences from related, thus far known genera support the description of Staleya guttiformis gen. nov. with the type strain EL-162T (= DSM 11443T).
Aurantimonas coralicida gen. nov., sp. nov., the causative agent of white plague type II on Caribbean scleractinian corals.
To accommodate this emerging coral pathogen, the creation of a new genus and species is proposed, Aurantimonas coralicida gen. nov., sp.
Verrucosispora gifhornensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a new member of the actinobacterial family Micromonosporaceae.
A new genus, Verrucosispora gen. nov, is proposed based on the unique combination of morphological, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic properties of the isolated strain HR1-2T, which was isolated from a peat bog near Gifhorn, Lower Saxony, Germany.
Chryseobacterium hispalense sp. nov., a plant-growth-promoting bacterium isolated from a rainwater pond in an olive plant nursery, and emended descriptions of Chryseobacterium defluvii,
A novel non-motile, Gram-staining-negative, yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated AG13(T), isolated from a rain water pond at a plant nursery in Spain and characterized as a plant-growth-promoting
Deinococcus frigens sp. nov., Deinococcus saxicola sp. nov., and Deinococcus marmoris sp. nov., low temperature and draught-tolerating, UV-resistant bacteria from continental Antarctica.
Six Gram-positive, non-motile, UV- and draught-tolerant bacteria were isolated from antarctic soil and rock samples and Phenotypic properties supported the description of three new species which were different from the eight known Deinococcus species and particularly from D. radiopugnans.
