Abstract

The taxonomic position of IFO 12536 (T = type strain) was determined by 16S rRNA gene sequencing and chemotaxonomic methods. Phylogenetic evidence derived from a 16S rRNA sequence analysis indicated that , which forms rod-shaped cells, belongs to the genus , which forms spherical cells. A phylogenetically close relationship was supported by chemotaxonomic characteristics, such as the presence of menaquinone 7 and menaquinone 8 as major isoprenoid quinones, the presence of phosphatidylglycerol, bisphosphatydylglycerol, and phosphatidylethanolamine as cellular polar lipids, and the G+C content of the DNA (46.3 mol%). These data suggest that whether a cell is a rod or a coccus is not a generic criterion. Accordingly, we propose that should be transferred to the genus and that the description of the genus should be emended.
