Oscillibacter valericigenes is a mesophilic, strictly anaerobic bacterium belonging to the clostridial cluster IV. Strain Sjm18-20(T) (=NBRC 101213(T) =DSM 18026(T)) is the type strain of the species and represents the genus Oscillibacter Iino et al. 2007. It was isolated from the alimentary canal of a Japanese corbicula clam (Corbicula japonica) collected(More)
The genus Nocardia includes both pathogens and producers of useful secondary metabolites. Although 16S rRNA analysis is required to accurately discriminate among phylogenetic relationships of the Nocardia species, most branches of 16S rRNA-based phylogenetic trees are not reliable. In this study, we performed in silico analyses of the genome sequences of(More)
16S rRNA gene sequences of two type strains belonging to different genera within the suborder Corynebacterineae, namely Hoyosella altamirensis and Amycolicicoccus subflavus, show a similarity of 99.8 %. Therefore, in order to clarify their taxonomic relationship, a polyphasic recharacterization under the same conditions was carried out. The peptidoglycan of(More)
