A polyphasic study of strains originally received as Bacillus (now Virgibacillus) pantothenticus, along with strains representing species belonging to Bacillus, Halobacillus and Paenibacillus, was undertaken using amplified rDNA restriction analysis (ARDRA), fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) analysis, SDS-PAGE of whole-cell proteins and routine diagnostic characters comprising 61 biochemical tests in the API system and 15 observations of vegetative cell and sporangial morphology. It revealed the… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Virgibacillus byunsanensis sp. nov., isolated from a marine solar saltern.
TLDR
Differential phenotypic properties of strain ISL-24(T), together with the phylogenetic and genetic distinctiveness, revealed that this strain is different from recognized Virgibacillus species.
Cerasibacillus quisquiliarum gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from a semi-continuous decomposing system of kitchen refuse.
TLDR
Phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analyses supported the classification of strain BLxT in a novel genus and species, Cerasibacillus quisquiliarum gen. nov., sp.
Transfer of Bacillus halodenitrificans Denariaz et al. 1989 to the genus Virgibacillus as Virgibacillus halodenitrificans comb. nov.
TLDR
DNA-DNA relatedness and phenotypic data indicated that B. halodenitrificans and strain SF-121 are members of the same species and should be reclassified in the genus Virgibacillus as VirgIBacillus halodnitRificans comb.
Cerasibacillus terrae sp. nov., isolated from maize field, and emended description of Cerasibacillus quisquiliarum Nakamura et al. 2004.
TLDR
Based on its distinct phylogenetic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic traits together with results of comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence, ANI and dDDH analyses, strain CC-CFT480T is proposed to represent a novel Cerasibacillus species.
Virgibacillus halophilus sp. nov., spore-forming bacteria isolated from soil in Japan.
TLDR
Two Gram-positive, round-spore-forming, rod-shaped, halophilic bacterial strains, 5B73C(T) and 5B133E, were isolated from field soil in Kakegawa, Shizuoka, Japan, and were characterized taxonomically using a polyphasic approach, showing phylogenetically affiliated to the genus Virgibacillus.
Aureibacillus halotolerans gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from marine sediment.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicated that strain S1203T formed a lineage within the family Bacillaceae that was distinct from the most closely related genera Bacillus, Bhargavaea, Planomicrobium and Virgibacillus with gene sequence similarities ranging from 86.2 to 93.76 %.
Virgibacillus soli sp. nov., isolated from mountain soil.
TLDR
Strain CC-YMP-6(T), isolated from soil samples collected from Yang-Ming Mountain, Taiwan, is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Virgibacillus, for which the name VirgIBacillus soli sp.
Virgibacillus chiguensis sp. nov., a novel halophilic bacterium isolated from Chigu, a previously commercial saltern located in southern Taiwan.
TLDR
A Gram-positive, motile, endospore-forming, irregular rod-shaped, halophilic bacterial strain, NTU-101(T), was isolated from Chigu saltern in southern Taiwan, previously used as a salt production field and was classified as a novel strain of Virgibacillus species.
Virgibacillus subterraneus sp. nov., a moderately halophilic Gram-positive bacterium isolated from subsurface saline soil.
TLDR
Based on the phenotypic, genotypic and phylogenetic data presented, strain H57B72(T) represents a novel species, for which the name Virgibacillus subterraneus sp.
Lentibacillus sediminis sp. nov., isolated from a marine saltern.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain 0W14T forms a phylogenetic lineage with members of the genus Lentibacillus within the family Bacillaceae.

TLDR
The species Virgibacillus pantothenticus and related organisms comprising this new genus can be distinguished fromMembers of Bacillus rRNA group 1 (Bacillus sensu stricto), and from members of Paenibacillin and other aerobic endospore-forming bacteria by routine phenotypic tests.
Classification of Alcaligenes faecalis-like isolates from the environment and human clinical samples as Ralstonia gilardii sp. nov.

SIGNIFICANCE OF QUINONES IN THE CLASSIFICATION OF BACTERIA
TLDR
Examination was made on whether the kind of quinones and the length of its side chain were different or not in the case of such bacteria which show varieties in gram staining, including genus Bacillus, which cannot be used to characterize the genus.
Bacillus pantothenticus (n.sp.).
TLDR
A new mesophilic species of the genus Bacillus was isolated from soil and tested in that its growth is stimulated by 4% NaCl, and that pantothenic acid satisfies a nutritional requirement.
Differentiation of Xanthomonas campestris pv. Citri Strains by Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate-Polyacrylamide Gel Electrophoresis of Proteins, Fatty Acid Analysis, and DNA-DNA Hybridization
A total of 61 strains, including members of all five currently described pathogenicity groups of Xanthomonas campestris pv. citri (groups A, B, C, D, and E) and representing a broad geographical

(formerly Pseudomonas flava), Hydrogenophaga palleronii (formerly Pseudomonas palleronii), Hydrogenophaga pseudoflava (formerly Pseudomonas pseudoflava and Pseudomonas carboxydoflava), and Hydrog
TLDR
The results show that these five yellow-pigmented hydrogen-oxidizing Pseudomonas species are more closely related to each other than to other taxa belonging to the acidovorans rRNA complex.
Phylogenetic heterogeneity of the genus Bacillus revealed by comparative analysis of small‐subunit‐ribosomal RNA sequences
TLDR
It is evident that the genus Bacillus in genetically extremely heterogeneous and requires extensive taxonomic revision and the rRNA structures defined in the present study will provide a firm basis for the division of Bacillus into several phylogenetically distinct genera.
Rapid extraction of bacterial genomic DNA with guanidium thiocyanate
TLDR
The method, which was applicable to both Gram‐positive and Gram‐negative bacteria, eliminated endogenous nuclease activity and avoided the need for phenol, RNase and protease treatments.
