Summary of "Classification of '' Hamada and Yokoyama as sp. nov., the second species in the genus and emendation of the genus ."

The 16S rRNA gene sequence of '' NBRC 13850 shows 99.7 % similarity to that of DSM 41855; however, it shows <96.1 % similarity to any other type strains, including spp. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences clearly suggests that '' belongs to the genus rather than to . The strain possesses ll-diaminopimelic acid in the cell wall. The major menaquinone observed is MK-9(H), and MK-9(H) and MK-9(H) are minor components. The major polar lipids are diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylinositol. In this study, the whole genome of strain NBRC 13850 was sequenced, and digital DNA-DNA hybridisation between '' NBRC 13850 and DSM 41855 demonstrated 31.2 % of relatedness value between the two genomes. Morphological, chemotaxonomic, biochemical and physiological data also revealed that '' can be easily differentiated from (the only the valid species of the genus ) and that it merits separate species status. This phenotypic and genetic evidence reveals that '' represents a novel species of the genus ; the name sp. nov. is proposed for this species. The type strain is NBRC 13850 (=ATCC 29817=MB 891-A1). We also emended the description of the genus considering the feature of .

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The type species of gram negative, aerobic bacteria in the genus ACHROMOBACTER. Previously in the genus ALCALIGENES, the classification and nomenclature of this species has been frequently emended. The two subspecies, Achromobacter xylosoxidans subsp. denitrificans and Achromobacter xylosoxidans subsp. xylosoxidans are associated with infections.

A genus of the family Lorisidae having four species which inhabit the forests and bush regions of Africa south of the Sahara and some nearby islands. The four species are G. alleni, G. crassicaudatus, G. demidovii, and G. senegalensis. There is another genus, Euoticus, containing two species which some authors have included in the Galago genus.

A genus of gram-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped bacteria, in the family BURKHOLDERIACEAE, that are mobile by means of peritrichous FLAGELLA. The genus was formerly called Wautersia and species in this genus were formerly in the genus RALSTONIA.

A plant genus of the family FABACEAE. The root is a source of rotenoids (ROTENONE) and flavonoids. Some species of Pongamia have been reclassified to this genus and some to MILLETTIA. Some species of Deguelia have been reclassified to this genus.

A genus of gram-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped bacteria. Organisms in this genus had originally been classified as members of the PSEUDOMONAS genus but overwhelming biochemical and chemical findings indicated the need to separate them from other Pseudomonas species, and hence, this new genus was created.
