In order to determine the phylogenetic relationships of representatives of three Gram-negative genera, Sporomusa, Selenomonas, and Megasphaera, the 16S ribosomal RNAs were compared by oligonucleotide cataloguing. Surprisingly, Sporomusa ovata, S. sphaeroides, Selenomonas ruminantium, and Megasphaera elsdenii do not group with any of the 200 Gram-negative eubacterial species investigated so far by this method but show a distinct although remote relationship to Gram-positive eubacteria of the… CONTINUE READING
