Comparative analysis of the genes coding for 16S rRNA of the type strains of Xenorhabdus and Photorhabdus species indicates the close phylogenetic relationship of these two genera. However, distance matrix analyses do not unambiguously separate the symbionts of entomopathogenic nematodes according to their assignment into different genera. When various 16S rRNA gene sequences from a selection of members of the gamma subclass of Proteobacteria and outgroup taxa were used, the intrageneric… CONTINUE READING
