Eleven strains of a new species of the genus Kluyveromyces, characterized as having evanescent asci and Q-6 as the major ubiquinone, were isolated from sediments, a clam and a crab collected at depths of 1000-2000 m in Suruga Bay and Sagami Bay, Japan. A phylogenetic tree based on small-subunit (18S) rRNA gene sequences placed these isolates into a cluster of Kluyveromyces. DNA complementarity and phylogenetic trees of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions and 5.8S rRNA genes showed that… CONTINUE READING
