Abstract

Newly isolated strains were characterized. In addition, the fatty acid compositions and quinone systems of gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, hydrogen-oxidizing bacteria belonging to the genera , and and related species were studied. strains are nitrogen-fixing organisms that have a Q-10 ubiquinone system; the cellular fatty acids of these organisms include high levels of C acid, and their hydroxy fatty acids include high levels of 3-OH C acid. strains are polarly flagellated organisms that have a Q-8 ubiquinone system. These bacteria can be divided into two groups on the basis of cellular fatty acid and hydroxy fatty acid compositions. strains are peritrichously flagellated, non-nitrogen-fixing organisms that have a Q-8 ubiquinone system; the cellular fatty acids of these strains include high levels of C, C and C acids, and their hydroxy fatty acids include 3-OH C and 2-OH C acids. , and strains can be clearly distinguished from each other on the basis of their quinone systems and cellular fatty acid compositions.
