Members of the saltwater genus Bacteriovorax, formerly known as the marine Bdellovibrio, are obligate predatory bacteria that prey selectively on other Gram-negative bacteria. Previous phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA genes of saltwater Bacteriovorax isolates from environmental samples revealed 11 distinct phylogenetic clusters based on > or =96.5 % gene sequence similarity. In other micro-organisms, the gene coding for the beta-subunit of RNA polymerase (rpoB) has been shown to be… CONTINUE READING
