Strains of Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacteria were isolated from nitrogen-fixing nodules of the native legumes Listia angolensis (from Zambia) and Lupinus texensis (from Texas, USA). Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene showed that the novel strains belong to the genus Microvirga, with ≥ 96.1% sequence similarity with type strains of this genus. The closest relative of the representative strains Lut6(T) and WSM3557(T) was Microvirga flocculans TFB(T), with 97.6-98.0… CONTINUE READING
