Deoxyribonucleic acids of Corynebacterium genitalium and Corynebacterium pseudogenitalium: their genome molecular weights, base ratios, and DNA relatedness with other corynebacteria involved in urinary tract infections.

Chromosomal deoxyribonucleic acids of Corynebacterium genitalium and Corynebacterium pseudogenitalium were isolated and analysed spectrophotometrically. Their genome molecular weights ranged from 1.1 X 10(9) to 1.6 X 10(9). The guanine-plus-cytosine content of C. genitalium ranged from 60.0 to 63.3%, whereas that of C. pseudogenitalium ranged from 56.1 to… CONTINUE READING
