Abstract

16S/23S intergenic spacer regions from the rRNA operons of two strains of Liberobacter asiaticum” and one strain of Liberobacter africanum” were cloned and sequenced. The intergenic spacers of the two L. asiaticum” strains studied are identical and contain the genes for isoleucine tRNA (tRNA) and alanine tRNA (tRNA) separated by 11 nucleotides. The intergenic spacer of the L. africanum” strain contains only one tRNA gene (tRNA). The level of homology between the intergenic spacers of the two liberobacter species is 79.46%. Ribosomal operons with 16S/23S spacer regions other than those studied might be present in the two Liberobacter” species.
