A novel myxobacterium, MCy1366(T) (Ar1733), was isolated in 1981 from a soil sample collected from a region near Tokyo, Japan. It displayed general myxobacterial features like Gram-negative-staining, rod-shaped vegetative cells, gliding on solid surfaces, microbial lytic activity, fruiting-body-like aggregates and myxospore-like structures. The strain was mesophilic, aerobic and showed a chemoheterotrophic mode of nutrition. It was resistant to many antibiotics such as cephalosporin C…

Simulacricoccus ruber gen. nov., sp. nov., a microaerotolerant, non-fruiting, myxospore-forming soil myxobacterium and emended description of the family Myxococcaceae.
TLDR
It is proposed that this unusual, non-fruiting, myxospore-forming and microaerotolerant myxobacterial strain, MCy10636T, represents a novel genus and species, Simulacricoccus ruber gen. nov., sp.
Minicystis rosea gen. nov., sp. nov., a polyunsaturated fatty acid-rich and steroid-producing soil myxobacterium.
TLDR
It is proposed that strain SBNa008(T) represents a novel genus and species, Minicystis rosea gen. nov, which formed a novel lineage in the suborder Sorangiineae.
Niranjan Parajuli et al paper
TLDR
The findings suggest that the arcane soil habitats of Nepal harbor myxobacteria with the capability to produce diverse antimicrobial activities that may be explored to overcome the rapidly rising global concern about antibiotic resistance.
Myxobacteria in high moor and fen: An astonishing diversity in a neglected extreme habitat
TLDR
The study shows that the neglected habitat moor is a promising source and of high interest with regard to the cultivation of prospective new bioactive secondary metabolite producing myxobacteria.
Comparison of myxobacterial diversity and evaluation of isolation success in two niches: Kiritimati Island and German compost
TLDR
The diversity of myxobacteria present in two ecological habitats, namely sand from Kiritimati Island and German compost, was evaluated by both cultivation‐based and cultivation‐independent methods and shows an overrepresentation of the genera Myxococcus spp.
Diversity of Myxobacteria—We Only See the Tip of the Iceberg
TLDR
Although several highly promising myxobacterial taxa have been identified recently, this so-called Great Plate Count Anomaly must be overcome to get broader access to new secondary metabolite producers.
Isolation, antimicrobial activity of myxobacterial crude extracts and identification of the most potent strains
TLDR
Broad spectrum antimicrobial agents are urgently needed to fight frequently occurring multidrug-resistant pathogens and myxobacteria could be considered for use in the development of antibiotics for pharmaceutical use.
Comparative Genomics and Pan-Genomics of the Myxococcaceae, including a Description of Five Novel Species: Myxococcus eversor sp. nov., Myxococcus llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogochensis sp. nov., Myxococcus vastator sp. nov., Pyxidicoccus caerfyrddinensis sp. nov., and Pyxid
TLDR
In both genera, biosynthetic gene clusters are relatively enriched in the shell pan-genomes, implying they grant a greater evolutionary benefit than other shell genes, presumably by conferring selective advantages during predation.
Assessment of Evolutionary Relationships for Prioritization of Myxobacteria for Natural Product Discovery
TLDR
Long-read genome sequencing benefits the classification of myxobacteria and improves determination of biosynthetic potential for prioritization of natural product discovery, and it is suggested that genus-level conservation of biosynthesis pathways support the preliminary taxonomic assignment.

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis reveals a novel branch diverging from the Polyangiaceae, Sorangiineae, Myxococcales and implies that strains SBKo001(T) and NOSO-1 not only represent a novel genus and species, but also belong to a new family, Phaselicystidaceae fam.

The Genus Lysobacter
TLDR
The Lysobacter species live in soil, decaying organic matter, and fresh water, sometimes in large populations, and many strains are of considerable ecological and biotechnological interest as producers of exoenzymes and of antibiotics.
Fatty Acid-Related Phylogeny of Myxobacteria as an Approach to Discover Polyunsaturated Omega-3/6 Fatty Acids
TLDR
The distribution of straight-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) and branched-chain omega-6 and omega-3 fats supports the reported clustering of strains in the phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA genes and allows the prediction and assignment of the novel isolate SBSr008 into its corresponding taxon.
Studies on the taxonomy of the Myxobacterales. I. Record of Canadian isolates and survey of methods.
TLDR
The paper includes 42 color photographs as an aid for other investigators in the identification of the Myxobacterales and a proposal is made to divide the genus Chondromyces into Stigmatella and Chondomyces and to assign the latter to the family Sorangiaceae.
Emended descriptions of the genera Myxococcus and Corallococcus, typification of the species Myxococcus stipitatus and Myxococcus macrosporus and a proposal that they be represented by neotype strains. Request for an Opinion.
TLDR
Phylogenetic, chemotaxonomic and physiological evidence is presented here that underpins the separate status of these phylogenetically neighbouring genera and suggests that the species Corallococcus macrosporus belongs to the genus Myxococcus.

Reclassification of Shewanella putrefaciens Owen's genomic group II as Shewanella baltica sp. nov.
TLDR
Results from DNA-DNA hybridization using a newly developed non-radioactive detection system and from 16S rRNA gene sequencing demonstrated that S. putrefaciens is a heterogeneous species containing more than a single genomic group.
