Molecular Evidence of Lateral Gene Transfer in rpoB Gene of Mycobacterium yongonense Strains via Multilocus Sequence Analysis


Recently, a novel species, Mycobacterium yongonense (DSM 45126(T)), was introduced and while it is phylogenetically related to Mycobacterium intracellulare, it has a distinct RNA polymerase β-subunit gene (rpoB) sequence that is identical to that of Mycobacterium parascrofulaceum, which is a distantly related scotochromogen, which suggests the acquisition… (More)
