Rathayibacter gen, nov., Including the Species Rathayibacter rathayi comb , nov,, Rathayibacter tritici comb , nov,, Rathayibacter iranicus comb, nov., and Six Strains from Annual Grasses
A new genus, Rathayibacteria, is proposed to accommodate three species of gram-positive, aerobic, coryneform bacteria previously placed in the genus Clavibacter (Rathayibacter rathayi comb. nov., RathayIBacter tritici comb.) as well as six strains that were isolated from annual cereal grasses, may be responsible for ryegrass toxicity.

Nocardiopsis tropica sp. nov., Nocardiopsis trehalosi sp. nov., nom. rev. and Nocardiopsis dassonvillei subsp. albirubida subsp. nov., comb. nov.
Based on 16S rDNA sequence analysis, DNA-DNA hybridization values and phenotypic characteristics, including the composition of menaquinones and cell wall teichoic acids, two new species are proposed, Nocardiopsis tropica sp. Expand
Azospirillum thiophilum sp. nov., a diazotrophic bacterium isolated from a sulfide spring.
A novel nitrogen-fixing strain isolated from a sulfur bacterial mat collected from a sulfide spring of the Stavropol Krai, North Caucasus, Russia was capable of mixotrophic growth under microaerobic conditions with simultaneous utilization of organic substrates and thiosulfate as electron donors for energy conservation.

Polyamine Distribution in Actinomycetes with Group B Peptidoglycan and Species of the Genera Brevibacterium, Corynebacterium, and Tsukamurella
The results of polyamine analyses demonstrate that polyamine patterns are suitable for use in classification of actinobacterial taxa. Expand
Halo-and psychrotolerant Geomyces fungi from arctic cryopegs and marine deposits
The isolates from cryopegs and surrounding marine deposits were shown to differ from those obtained from nonsaline soils and temperate environments in their ability to grow at negative temperatures (−2°C) under increased salt concentration (10%). Expand
Random amplified ribosomal DNA restriction analysis for rapid identification of thermophilic Actinomycete-like bacteria involved in hypersensitivity pneumonitis.
Combining some cultural characteristics and biochemical tests, such as xanthine or hypoxanthine decomposition, growth in the presence of NaCl, lysozyme or novobiocin, and spore resistance over 100 degrees C provide a rough identification and selection of the genera of interest. Expand
Thiothrix caldifontis sp. nov. and Thiothrix lacustris sp. nov., gammaproteobacteria isolated from sulfide springs.
Five strains of filamentous, sulfur-oxidizing bacteria were isolated from sulfur mats of different sulfide springs from various regions of the Northern Caucasus, Russia and showed high genetic similarity among strains G1(T), G2, P and K2, indicating that they are closely related to Thiothrix fructosivorans.

Conversion of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons by Sphingomonas sp. VKM B-2434
A versatile bacterial strain able to convert polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) was isolated, and a conversion by the isolate of both individual substances and PAH mixtures was investigated. TheExpand
Grouping of Frankia Strains on the Basis of DNA Relatedness
The diversity among 27 Frankia strains was estimated by DNA-DNA hybridization (membrane filter method) and by determining DNA base compositions, which allowed us to differentiate nine genospecies. Expand
