Three strains of "Agrobacterium sanguineum", an aerobic marine bacterial species described previously, were re-characterized from phylogenetic and taxonomic viewpoints. 16S rDNA sequence comparisons showed that the "A. sanguineum" strains belong to the α–4 subgroup of α-Proteobacteria, with members of the genera Erythromicrobium and Porphyrobacter as their closest relatives. DNA-DNA hybridization studies indicated that the "A. sanguineum" strains were distinguishable from any previously known… CONTINUE READING
