Disease relevance of rns

  • Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rDNA sequences showed association of these organisms and [Cytophaga] lytica at the genus level [1].
  • By 16S rDNA analysis, the bacteria were shown to belong to the genus Pseudoalteromonas, a member of the gamma-subclass of the Proteobacteria [2].
  • Phylogenetic analysis revealed that KMM 3553(T) formed a distinct phyletic line in the phylum Bacteroidetes, class Flavobacteria in the family Flavobacteriaceae and that, phylogenetically, this strain could be placed almost equidistant from the genera Gelidibacter and Psychroserpens (16S rRNA gene sequence similarities of 94 %) [3].
  • A comparative analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain KMM 3637(T) formed a distinct phyletic lineage in the genus Brevibacterium (family Brevibacteriaceae, class Actinobacteria) and showed the highest sequence similarity (about 97 %) to Brevibacterium casei [4].
