Proposed minimal standards for describing new taxa of the family Flavobacteriaceae and emended description of the family.
In this paper minimal standards for the description of new genera and cultivable species in the family Flavobacteriaceae are proposed in accordance with Recommendation 30b of the Bacteriological CodeExpand
Mucilaginibacter kameinonensis sp., nov., isolated from garden soil.
An extracellular polysaccharide-producing bacterium, strain SCK(T), was isolated from a soil sample taken from Kameino, Fujisawa, Japan and was shown to belong to the genus Mucilaginibacter. Expand
Ruegeria mobilis sp. nov., a member of the Alphaproteobacteria isolated in Japan and Palau.
The taxonomic positions of two bacterial strains isolated from marine environments of Japan and Palau, respectively, were determined by using a polyphasic approach and were considered to represent a novel species of the genus Ruegeria, for which the name Ruegersia mobilis sp. Expand
Description of Komagataeibacter gen. nov., with proposals of new combinations (Acetobacteraceae).
The genus Gluconacetobacter Yamada et al. (2012) proposed the new genus Komagataeibacter (Komagatabacter) with 12 new combinations on the basis of these taxonomic characteristics, but the new name of the genus and the new combinations were not recognized in their validations. Expand
Emendation of the genus Planococcus and transfer of Flavobacterium okeanokoites Zobell and Upham 1944 to the genus Planococcus as Planococcus okeanokoites comb. nov.
Data suggest that whether a cell is a rod or a coccus is not a generic criterion, and it is proposed that F. okeanokoites should be transferred to the genus Planococcus and the description of the genusplanococcus should be emended. Expand
Transfer of "Pseudomonas riboflavina" (Foster 1944), a gram-negative, motile rod with long-chain 3-hydroxy fatty acids, to Devosia riboflavina gen. nov., sp. nov., nom. rev.
A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA sequences revealed that "P. riboflavina" IFO 13584T occupies an independent position in the alpha subclass of the Proteobacteria, and it is proposed that this organism should be transferred to the genus Devosia gen. nov. Expand
Emendation of the genus Cytophaga and transfer of Cytophaga agarovorans and Cytophaga salmonicolor to Marinilabilia gen. nov. : phylogenetic analysis of the Flavobacterium-Cytophaga complex
A 16S rRNA sequence analysis revealed that the genera Cytophaga, Flavobacterium, and Flexibacter are all polyphyletic and should be redefined and reorganized. Cytophaga hutchinsonii, the type speciesExpand
Sequencing orphan species initiative (SOS): Filling the gaps in the 16S rRNA gene sequence database for all species with validly published names.
The International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria provides a number of mechanisms to deal with the problem of missing type strains and it is recommended that due consideration be given to the appropriate mechanisms in order to help solve some of these issues. Expand
A novel symbiotic nitrogen-fixing member of the Ochrobactrum clade isolated from root nodules of Acacia mangium.
The strain DASA 35030 was strongly suggested to be a strain of Ochrobactrum by full length sequences of the 16S rRNA gene, fatty acids composition, G+C contents of the DNA, and other physiological characteristics and it is reported that the strain possesses complete symbiotic ability with Acacia.
