Eleven strains that formed symbiotic root nodules on Alhagi sparsifolia, designated previously as genospecies II, were identified as a new lineage of Mesorhizobium (Alphaproteobacteria) that could be differentiated from all previously recognized species of the genus Mesorhizobium by using 16S rRNA gene sequences (<97.8 % similarity), DNA-DNA hybridization (<45 %), dnaJ, dnaK, recA, glnA, nifH, nodA and nodC gene sequences, fatty acid profiles (C(18 : 1)omega7c, 35 %;11-methyl C(18 : 1)omega7c… CONTINUE READING
