Bacteriol. 87:1412–1422. 1964.—The deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) base compositions and S values for a minimum of 134 coded properties were determined for representative cultures of the genera Pseudomonas, Xanthomonas, Aeromonas, Vibrio, Aerobacter, Escherichia, Alcaligenes, and Flavobacterium. Those cultures having a high degree… 

Adansonian Analysis and Deoxyribonucleic Acid Base Composition of Serratia marcescens

It was concluded that there is only a single species in the genus Serratia marcescens, and the variety designation kiliensis does not appear to be valid, since no subspecies clustering of strains with negative Voges-Proskauer reactions could be detected.

Similarity of Xanthomonas and Pseudomonas Deoxyribonucleic Acid

Results are evidence of the close genetic relationship between the two genera and the near identity of the DNA in these nine strains favors their inclusion in one genetic species, for which the name Xanthomonas campestris is proposed.

Deoxyribonucleic acid relationships among members of the genus Aeromonas.

Internal homology groups could not be demonstrated within the motile aeromonads, and significant divergence in related sequences was indicated, and the Genus Aeromonas consists of two genotypically legitimate groups: a diverse group of motile Aeromonad and the genetically more homogeneous non-motiles aeromonad, comprising the species Aeromona salmonicida.

Deoxyribonucleic acid base composition in the genus Pseudomonas.

The data on base composition of the deoxyribonucleic acids of the various cultures support, for the greater part, the conclusions of Stanier, Palleroni & Doudoroff (1966) and of Redfearn, Pallersoni & Stanier (1966).

DNA homology and taxonomy of Pseudomonas and Xanthomonas.

SUMMARY: The relatedness between several nomen species of the Pseudomonas-Xanthomonas group and some other organisms was numerically fixed through DNA homology and DNA base composition. For

Taxonomy of Aerobic Marine Eubacteria

Two hundred and eighteen strains of nonfermentative marine bacteria were submitted to an extensive morphological, physiological, and nutritional characterization, finding that the majority of these groups were separable by a large number of unrelated phenotypic traits.

Polyphasic Taxonomy of the Genus Vibrio: Polynucleotide Sequence Relationships Among Selected Vibrio Species

Reassociation reactions between V. cholerae DNA and the DNA of V. parahaemolyticus indicated these species were not significantly related to each other, suggesting relatively little evolutionary divergence in these organisms.

DNA base composition in mycoplasma, bacteria and yeast.

  • 1973
A brief discussion of some of the problems related to determinations of base compositions and attempts to give a complete key to the literature on DNA base composition in mycoplasmas, bacteria and yeasts up to the end of 1971 are given.

Numerical Survey of Some Bacterial Taxa

There may be significant variation in levels of similarity within microbial groups presently accorded equivalent taxonomic rank, and that some present distinctions among taxa, particularly at the generic level, cannot be confirmed on the basis of overall similarity.

Identification of Vibrio hollisae sp. nov. from patients with diarrhea

The name Vibrio hollisae (synonym = Special Bacteriology group EF-13) is proposed for a new group of 16 strains that occurred in stool cultures of patients with diarrhea, which is motile with a single polar flagellum and a halophilic vibrio.

TAXONOMIC RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE PSEUDOMONADS

An electronic computer technique, utilizing the Adansonian principle that every feature should have equal weight, was applied in an effort to derive a taxonomy of the Pseudomonas-Achromobacter group of gram-negative, asporogenous, rodlike bacteria.

TAXONOMIC ANALYSIS WITH THE ELECTRONIC COMPUTER OF SOME XANTHOMONAS AND PSEUDOMONAS SPECIES

The Adansonian principle of classification was employed in an analysis, made with an electronic computer, of the characteristics of these cultures, and showed that Xanthomonas spp.

INTERSPECIFIC TRANSFORMATION IN BACILLUS

The close correlation between the ability of DNA to be competent in interspecific transformation and to form hybrid molecules on denaturation and annealing provided a rational approach to the study of genetic relationship among organisms for which no genetic exchange has yet been demonstrated.

COMPARATIVE TAXONOMY OF CRYSTALLOGENIC STRAINS OF PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA AND PSEUDOMONAS CHLORORAPHIS

Only 11 of 39 strains received in the Agricultural Research Service Culture Collection under the designation Pseudonomas chlororaphis proved to be authentic; 28 were typical, pyocyanogenic strains of P. aeruginosa.

A NEW FERMENTATIVE PSEUDOMONAD, PSEUDOMONAS FORMICANS, N.SP

In 1942 Doudoroff showed that certain facultatively anaerobic luminous bacteria of the genera Photobacterium and Achromobacter possessed a mixed acid type of fermentation similar to that of Escherichia coli.

QUANTITATIVE APPROACH TO THE STUDY OF BACTERIAL SPECIES

The stability of strains of various species of gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria was investigated by subculturing each strain through ten different media, testing the substrains so produced through a standard series of tests, and analyzing the resulting data by electronic computer.

Observations on the specificities of extracellular antigens of the genera Aeromonas and Serratia.

It appeared unlikely that Aeromonas could be regarded as a non-pigmented member of Serratia and antisera produced against these antigens could be used to identify these organisms.

Genetic Significance of Microbial DNA Composition

This essay proposes first that near-identity in overall DNA composition is a highly correlative and heuristic feature of genetically interacting microbes and secondly that somewhat more speculative aspects of the genetic significance ofDNA composition are dealt with.
