We analyzed the ribosomal AT-L30 proteins from 11 type strains of species belonging to the genus . The electrophoretic mobilities of the AT-L30 preparations from these strains, as determined by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, revealed that they could be divided into three groups. The first group contained subsp. , and , while the second group contained , and was a member of the third group. These groups were completely consistent with Nonomura's previous classification, which was based on morphological criteria. The results of partial amino acid sequencing of AT-L30 preparations from several representative strains strongly supported the hypothesis that each of the three groups of the genus merits separate generic status.
