Abstract

Comparative sequence analysis of in vitro-amplified 16S rRNA genes of GB17 (T = type strain) and LMG 4218 revealed identical 16S rRNA primary structures for the two organisms. The level of overall DNA similarity of GB17 and P. DSM 65 is 85%, as determined by quantitative DNA-DNA hybridization. Therefore, we propose the transfer of to The closest relative of and is as revealed by comparative 16S rRNA sequence analysis. These organisms are members of the alpha subclass of the Within this subclass, , and form a phylogenetic group with and .”
