Cupriavidus alkaliphilus sp. nov., a new species associated with agricultural plants that grow in alkaline soils.


A group of 20 bacterial strains was isolated from the rhizosphere of different agricultural plants growing in alkaline soils in the northeast of Mexico. The phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence from four strains showed that this novel group belonged to the Cupriavidus genus, with C. taiwanensis (∼98.9%) and C. necator (∼98.8%) as the closest… (More)
