The name Pasteuria ramosa Metchnikoff 1888 is used for two quite different kinds of bacteria. We request that the Judicial Commission issue an Opinion to the effect that the name be used only for the sort of bacterial parasite or endosymbiont described by Metchnikoff from the body cavities of cladoceran invertebrates belonging to the family Daphnidae. The name should not be used for an organism quite different from that described by Metchnikoff, ATCC 27377T, a member of morphotype IV of the…

Assignment of ATCC 27377 to Pirella gen. nov. as Pirella staleyi comb. nov.

Morphological and physiological observations, as well as deoxyribonucleic acid base composition and 16S ribosomal ribon nucleic acid oligomer analyses, clearly showed that strain ATCC 27377Tdiffers significantly from species belonging to the genus Planctomyces.

Complete genome sequence of Pirellula staleyi type strain (ATCC 27377T)

Members of this pear- or teardrop-shaped bacterium show a clearly visible pointed attachment pole and can be distinguished from other Planctomycetes by a lack of true stalks.

'Candidatus pasteuria usgae' sp. nov., an obligate endoparasite of the phytoparasitic nematode Belonolaimus longicaudatus.

The 16S rDNA sequence of strain S-1 confirms its congeneric ranking with other Pasteuria species and strains from nematodes and cladocerans and corroborates morphological, morphometric and host range evidence suggesting a novel taxon.

Emendation of the genus Blastobacter Zavarzin 1961 and description of Blastobacter natatorius sp. nov.

The name Blastobacter natatorius is proposed for a new species of the genus Blastobacteria, which was isolated from a freshwater swimming pool and has a simple mucilaginous holdfast at its nonreproductive pole.

Molecular and ultrastructural confirmation of classification of ATCC 35122 as a strain of Pirellula staleyi.

A freshwater isolate from Campus Lake, Baton Rouge, LA, USA, strain ATCC 35122, which had been proposed as a putative reference strain for 'Planctomyces staleyi', has been re-examined to establish its relationship to the type strain of Pirellula staley i, ATCC 27377T.

Pasteuria, Metchnikoff, 1888

This chapter on Pasteuria spp. highlights Metchnikoff's thinking that Pasteuria spp. was able to undergo as many as five longitudinal divisions at the same time, giving it a characteristic fan shape.

The order Planctomycetales, including the genera Planctomyces, Pirellula, Gemmata and Isosphaera and the Candidatus genera Brocadia, Kuenenia and Scalindua

Through the application of molecular microbial ecology techniques over the last 10 years, it has become apparent that planctomycetes are ubiquitous in a wide range of terrestrial and aquatic environments; the physiological diversity underlying this geographic ubiquity has not yet been fully explored.



Re-evaluation of Pasteuria ramosa Metchnikoff 1888, a Bacterium Pathogenic for Daphnia Species

Recent examination of Daphnia spp. collected from Lake Erie and several locations in southern Michigan, U.S.A., revealed the presence of structures that resembled those described by Metchnikoff in

Occurrence in Monia rectirostris (Cladocera: Daphnidae) of a parasite morphologically similar to Pasteuria ramosa (Metchnikoff, 1888).

Morphological features of this newly described parasite indicated that the bacterium is similar to the BSPN, and an organism resembling P. ramosa was found infecting Moina rectirostris, a member of the Daphnidae and a new host for the bacteria.

The Blastocaulis-Planctomyces Group of Budding and Appendaged Bacteria

The entire assemblage of these interesting budding and appendaged bacteria with prominent acellular (nonprosthecate) appendages are referred to as the “Blastocaulis-Planctomyces group” to avoid unwarranted taxonomic implications.

The Genus Pasteuria

These budding bacteria are found in aquatic habitats and were first described by Metchnikoff as a parasite of the freshwater fleas, Daphnia pulex and Daphnian major in 1888.

Budding bacteria of the Pasteuria-Blastobacter group.

Two strains of ovoid budding bacteria have been isolated from peptone enrichment cultures from a creek and lake and attach to organisms and inanimate substrata by holdfast st...

Approved lists of bacterial names.

A review of the currently valid names of bacteria is conducted with the object of retaining only names for those taxa which were adequately described and cultivable, for which there was a Type, Neotype, or Reference strain available.
