An analysis of the ribosomal AT-L30 proteins from 42 strains of 35 species belonging to the genera , and and related genera revealed that all of the members of the genera and examined had the same sequence as or a highly homologous sequence and exhibited high levels of relatedness to . These results strongly support the previous suggestion of Witt and Stackebrandt (D. Witt and E. Stackebrandt, Syst. Appl. Microbiol. 13:361-371, 1990) and Wellington et al. (E. M. H. Wellington, E. Stackebrandt, D. Sanders, J. Wolstrup, and N. O. G. Jorgensen, Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 42:156-160, 1992) that the genera and should be united with the genus on the basis of 16S rRNA data.
