The Actinobacteria constitute one of the main phyla of Bacteria. Presently, no morphological and very few molecular characteristics are known which can distinguish species of this highly diverse group. In this work, we have analyzed the genomes of four actinobacteria (viz. Mycobacterium leprae TN, Leifsonia xyli subsp. xyli str. CTCB07, Bifidobacterium longum NCC2705 and Thermobifida fusca YX) to search for proteins that are unique to Actinobacteria. Our analyses have identified 233… Expand
Phylogenomics and signature proteins for the alpha Proteobacteria and its main groups
TLDR
The α-proteobacteria-specific proteins and indels described here provide novel and powerful means for the taxonomic, biochemical and molecular biological studies on these bacteria. Expand
Structural and phylogenetic analysis of a conserved actinobacteria-specific protein (ASP1; SCO1997) from Streptomyces coelicolor
TLDR
The structural data in combination with sequence analysis supports the idea that two of the 5 actinobacteria-specific proteins, ASP1 and ASP2, mediate similar function, which is predicted to be novel since the structures of these proteins do not match any known protein with or without known function. Expand
Molecular signatures (unique proteins and conserved indels) that are specific for the epsilon proteobacteria (Campylobacterales)
TLDR
A large number of proteins are identified that are unique to various epsilon proteobacteria (Campylobacterales), but whose homologs are not detected in other organisms and which provide novel resources for diagnostics and therapeutics. Expand
Phylogenetic Framework and Molecular Signatures for the Main Clades of the Phylum Actinobacteria
TLDR
Large numbers of molecular markers consisting of conserved signature indels in protein sequences and whole proteins that are specific for either all Actinobacteria or their different clades at various taxonomic levels enable the development of a stable and reliable phylogenetic framework for this phylum. Expand
Phylogeny and molecular signatures (conserved proteins and indels) that are specific for the Bacteroidetes and Chlorobi species
TLDR
The molecular signatures described here provide novel tools for identifying and circumscribing species from the Bacteroidetes and Chlorobi phyla as well as some of their main groups in clear terms and provide strong evidence that species from these two phyla are specifically related to each other and they form a single superphylum.

Genomics of Actinobacteria: Tracing the Evolutionary History of an Ancient Phylum
TLDR
An account of the recent explosion of actinobacterial genomics data is provided and an attempt to place this in a biological and evolutionary context. Expand
The Phylum Actinobacteria
TLDR
Not only were the two genera found to be well separated, but more extraordinary, were phylogenetically located in different phyla; Lactobacillus was located within the Firmicutes while Bifidobacterium was finding to be placed within the Actinobacteria . Expand

TLDR
GyrB protein sequence alignments revealed that there are genus-specific sequences for most of the multi-species genera and genus-defining amino acid insertions for the genera Herbidospora and Microbispora and there are GyrB signature amino acids which distinguish the family Streptosporangiaceae from the family Nocardiopsaceae.

Endophytic Actinobacteria: Diversity and Ecology
TLDR
A combination of both culture-based and molecular techniques is essential to describe the diversity and ecology of endophytic actinobacteria, as they represent the largest ecological resource for secondary metabolites (plant hormones, antibiotics and other bioactive compounds), with potential biotechnological applications in agriculture, industry and medicine. Expand
Identification of Molecular Markers That Are Specific to the Class Thermoleophilia
TLDR
This study represents the first and most comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the class Thermoleophilia, and the identified CSIs and CSPs provide valuable molecular markers for the identification and delineation of species belonging to this class or its subordinate taxa. Expand

TLDR
Three conserved indels (i.e. inserts or deletions) are described in three widely distributed proteins that are distinctive characteristics of the Actinobacteria and are not found in any other groups of bacteria. Expand
Protein Signatures Distinctive of Alpha Proteobacteria and Its Subgroups and a Model for α –Proteobacterial Evolution
TLDR
A large number of conserved indels in broadly distributed proteins that are distinctive and unifying characteristics of either all α −proteobacteria, or many of its constituent subgroups are described for the first time. Expand
Signature proteins that are distinctive of alpha proteobacteria
TLDR
The identified proteins provide novel means for defining and identifying the α-proteobacteria and many of its subgroups in clear molecular terms and in understanding the evolution of this group of species. Expand
The Phylogeny and Signature Sequences Characteristics of Fibrobacteres, Chlorobi, and Bacteroidetes
TLDR
Signatures in a number of other proteins provide evidence that the FCB group of bacteria diverged at a similar time as the Chlamydiae group, and that the Spirochetes and Aquificales groups are its closest relatives. Expand

TLDR
An unexpected but important aspect of the relationship deduced here is that the main eubacterial phyla are related to each other linearly rather than in a tree-like manner, suggesting that the major evolutionary changes within Bacteria have taken place in a directional manner. Expand
Conserved indels in essential proteins that are distinctive characteristics of Chlamydiales and provide novel means for their identification.
TLDR
A number of molecular signatures are described that consist of conserved inserts and deletions in widely distributed proteins that are distinctive characteristics of all available chlamydiae homologues and provide evidence that divergence between the traditional Chlamydiaceae species and the other chlamyde families occurred very early in the evolution of this group of bacteria.

TLDR
The results provide strong and consistent evidence that the Aquificales diverged after the branching of Firmicutes, Actinob bacteria, Thermotoga, Deinococcus-Thermus, green nonsulfur bacteria, Cyanobacteria, Spirochetes, Chlamydiae, and CFBG group, but before the emergence of the Proteobacteria.

The molecular phylogeny and systematics of the actinomycetes.
TLDR
Current knowledge about the phylogenetic structure of the actinomycetes provides not only a sound basis for future taxonomic work but also a framework for the rational exploration of their ecology and biotechnological potential. Expand
Multiple paralogous genes related to the Streptomyces coelicolor developmental regulatory gene whiB are present in Streptomyces and other actinomycetes.
TLDR
A Southern blotting survey showed that nearly all of a series of representatives of ten actinomycete genera contain close homologues of several wbI genes, suggesting that the ancient progenitor of all these organisms already contained a family of such genes, which have not been found in any other organisms.

TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the linear chromosome of Streptomyces avermitilis is determined and it is revealed that an internal 6.5-Mb region in the S. avermitILis genome was highly conserved with respect to gene order and content, and contained all known essential genes but showed perfectly asymmetric structure at the oriC center.
