Two airborne bacterial isolates, NS/2 and NS/50(T), were examined in order to determine their taxonomic position. Their almost complete 16S rRNA gene sequences shared 95.9 % similarity. Sequence comparisons demonstrated that their next relatives are species of the genus Hymenobacter (93.6-95.7 % similarity) and the strains 'Taxeobacter chitinovorans'(More)
Three aerobic, gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming, red-pigmented, airborne bacteria (I/26-Cor1T, I/32A-Cor1 and I/74-Cor2) collected in the Museo Correr (Venice, Italy) were investigated to determine their taxonomic status by analysing their biochemical, physiological and chemotaxonomic features and the G+C content of genomic DNA and by comparing(More)
Two airborne bacterial isolates designated V45(T) and V54A(T) were characterized in order to determine their taxonomic position. 16S rDNA sequence analysis showed that the two isolates shared 98.1 % sequence similarity. Highest sequence similarities (98.0-98.5 %) were found to Promicromonospora citrea DSM 43110(T) and Promicromonospora sukumoe IFO 14650(T).(More)
A coccoid- to ovoid-shaped, Gram-positive bacterial strain, designated C3H-21(T), was isolated from the liver of the laboratory mouse strain C3H/He and characterized by a polyphasic approach. The peptidoglycan type was variation A4gamma with meso-diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic cell-wall diamino acid and an interpeptide bridge of D-asp-D-Glu. The(More)
In a project concerning bacterial colonization of experimental wall paintings, a large number of isolates have been acquired with high similarities in their whole-cell protein patterns obtained after SDS-PAGE. Of this group, four strains, designated V2-BIII-A2(T), V2-BI-A9, V2-BI-04 and V2-BII-A8, were chosen for further characterization. Banding patterns(More)
A format for the description of single novel species is proposed, which should facilitate the reviewing process by assisting the provision of data in a standardized form. The abstract must be short and concise, highlighting phylogenetic position, morphology and chemotaxonomy for genus affiliation, the genotypic and phenotypic basis for species(More)
Seven psychrotolerant, Gram-negative bacterial strains, five dust- and airborne isolates (MA101b(T), MA306a, MA405/90, MA-olki(T) and NW12(T)) and two from the Antarctic (Ant 20 and M3C203B-B), were subjected to a polyphasic characterization to determine their taxonomic position. High 16S rDNA sequences similarities (99.3-100.0 %) demonstrated that they(More)
The canine gastric mucosa is known to be a habitat for various Helicobacter species. So far, five Helicobacter species have been described from the canine gastric mucosa, but histological studies have demonstrated a greater variety. In order to gain more information on diversity of canine gastric mucosa colonising helicobacters, biopsy samples of four pet(More)
In a study for the isolation of new Helicobacter strains, biopsy samples were taken from the gastric mucosa of dogs and subjected to PCR amplification using a Helicobacter-specific primer pair (H276f and H676r, directed to the 16S rDNA) to identify members of this genus in the specimens. From one Helicobacter positive sample, a bacterial strain was isolated(More)
The taxonomy of strain Iso-46T isolated from a bioaerosol generated by cleaning of a pigeon faeces contaminated room was investigated in a polyphasic approach. The beige pigmented Gram-negative, oxidase-negative organism contained a quinone system with mainly ubiquinone Q-8, and the polar lipid profile was composed of phosphatidylethanolamine,(More)
