Phylogenetic positions of novel aerobic, bacteriochlorophyll a-containing bacteria and description of Roseococcus thiosulfatophilus gen. nov., sp. nov., Erythromicrobium ramosum gen. nov., sp. nov.,
We analyzed the 16S ribosomal DNAs of three obligately aerobic, bacteriochlorophyll a-containing bacteria, "Roseococcus thiosulfatophilus," "Erythromicrobium ramosum," and new isolate T4T (T = typeExpand
Thiorhodospira sibirica gen. nov., sp. nov., a new alkaliphilic purple sulfur bacterium from a Siberian soda lake.
A new purple sulfur bacterium was isolated from microbial films on decaying plant mass in the near-shore area of the soda lake Malyi Kasytui and recognized as a new species of a new genus with the proposed name Thiorhodospira sibirica. Expand
Proposal of Oscillochloridaceae fam. nov. on the basis of a phylogenetic analysis of the filamentous anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria, and emended description of Oscillochloris and Oscillochloris
The nucleotide sequences of the genes of 16S rRNAs were determined for the type strain Oscillochloris trichoides DG-6T and three new strains of Oscill Cochloris-like mesophilic filamentous green bacteria and a new family is created, O oscillochloridaceae fam. Expand
Phylum BVI. Chloroflexi phy. nov.
The phylum Chloroflexi is a deep branching lineage of Bacteria The single class within Chloroflexi subdivides into two orders: the “Chloroflexales” and the “Herpetosiphonales”. Gram-negative,Expand
Reorganization of the genus Erythromicrobium: description of "Erythromicrobium sibiricum" as Sandaracinobacter sibiricus gen. nov., sp. nov., and of "Erythromicrobium ursincola" as Erythromonas
The results of investigations on the morphology, physiology, pigment composition, light-harvesting antenna and reaction center organization, and electron carriers of five ErythromicrobiumExpand
Anaerobranca californiensis sp. nov., an anaerobic, alkalithermophilic, fermentative bacterium isolated from a hot spring on Mono Lake.
A novel, obligately anaerobic, alkalithermophilic, chemo-organotrophic bacterium was isolated from the sediment of an alkaline hot spring located on Paoha Island in Mono Lake, California, USA and represents a novel species, Anaerobranca californiensis sp. Expand
Thioalkalimicrobium cyclicum sp. nov. and Thioalkalivibrio jannaschii sp. nov., novel species of haloalkaliphilic, obligately chemolithoautotrophic sulfur-oxidizing bacteria from hypersaline alkaline
Two strains of haloalkaliphilic, obligately autotrophic, sulfur-oxidizing bacteria were isolated from the oxygen-sulfide interface water layer of stratified alkaline and saline Mono Lake, California, USA and genetic comparison and phylogenetic analysis suggested that ALM 1T represents a new species of the genus Thioalkalimicrobium in the gamma-Proteobacteria. Expand
Thiocapsa marina sp. nov., a novel, okenone-containing, purple sulfur bacterium isolated from brackish coastal and marine environments.
According to phenotypic characteristics and mainly the carotenoid composition, 16S rDNA sequence analysis and DNA-DNA hybridization data, it is proposed that these strains should be classified as a novel species, Thiocapsa marina sp. Expand
Prokaryotic communities of the north-eastern Mongolian soda lakes
The prokaryotic communities of the Mongolian alkaline salt lakes represent an interesting new example of a diverse community of haloalkaliphilic bacteria well adopted to a broad salinity range. Expand
Heliorestis daurensis, gen. nov. sp. nov., an alkaliphilic rod-to-coiled-shaped phototrophic heliobacterium from a Siberian soda lake
This unique assemblage of properties implicates strain BT-H1 as a new genus and species of the heliobacteria, Heliorestis daurensis, named for its unusual morphology and for the Daur Steppe in Russia in which these soda lakes are located. Expand
