In the search for novel Xenorhabdus strains in a recently described nematode species, Steinernema thermophilum, three strains (strain 28(T) = DSM 17382(T), strain 42 = DSM 17383 and strain 43 = DSM 17384) were isolated from three independent isolation approaches from crushed mixture of infective juveniles. 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison of strains 28(T) and DSM 17383 indicated identity and the phylogenetic position pointed towards an individual taxon within the phylogenetic dendrogram of… CONTINUE READING
