Abstract

The 16S rRNA gene of the magnetotactic magnetogen MS1 was amplified by a polymerase chain reaction, using two eubacterial consensus oligodeoxynucleotide primers flanking the majority of the 16S rRNA gene, cloned, and sequenced. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that MS1 belongs to the α-group of proteobacteria. This assignment offers perspective on the biochemical properties of , since this organism is expected to have the general properties that are common to this phylogenetic group.
