Numerical Analysis of Rapidly Growing, Scotochromogenic Mycobacteria, Including Mycobacterium obuense sp. nov., nom. rev., Mycobacterium rhodesiae sp. nov., nom. rev., Mycobacterium aichiense sp.
It is found that there are many species of rapidly growing, scotochromogenic mycobacteria, and it is believed that new species should be recognized and named on the basis of at least three strains. Expand
Mycobacterium obuense, a rapidly growing scotochromogenic mycobacterium capable of forming a black product from p-aminosalicylate and salicylate.
Five strains of rapidly growing scotochromogenic mycobacteria were shown to have a capacity to degrade p-aminosalicylate and salicylates, forming a black product(s), forming a new species of the genus Mycobacterium. Expand
Mycobacterium pulveris sp. nov., a Nonphotochromogenic Mycobacterium with an Intermediate Growth Rate
A group of nonphotochromogenic mycobacteria with intermediate growth rates were isolated from house dust and were considered to be members of a new species in the genus Mycobacterium. This organismExpand
Comprehensive Numerical Classification of 369 Strains of Mycobacterium, Rhodococcus, and Nocardia
A numerical analysis of 369 strains received as members of the genus Mycobacterium, Rhodococcus (formerly Gordona), Nocardia, or Corynebacterium was carried out using 88 characters and found four distinct clusters at a similarity level of 85%. Expand
Numerical analysis of relationships among rapidly growing, scotochromogenic mycobacteria.
Characters useful for differentiating the species were found inumerical analysis of the relationships among rapidly growing, scotochromogenic mycobacteria. Expand
Mycobacterium rhodesiae sp. nov. A new species of rapid-growing scotochromogenic mycobacteria.
A number of rapid-growing scotochromogenic mycobacteria were isolated from the sputum specimen of Rhodesian patients with pulmonary disease and recognized as a new species. This was given the nameExpand
Classification of rapidly growing mycobacteria.
Type or representative strains of rapidly growing mycobacteria were tested in respect to 97 characters and submitted to a numerical classification and revealed the following species be recognized: M. fortuitum, M. parafortuitum and M. smegmatis. Expand
"Hypothetical mean organisms" of mycobacteria. A study of the classification of mycobacteria.
Dendrogram of the species showed two main stems, indicating that the genus Mycobacterium be divided into two subgenera, subgenus Myc Cobacterium (from M. tuberculosis to M. chitae) and sub genus My cornycob bacterium ( from M. borstelense toM. smegmatis). Expand
