Abstract

gene sequences were determined for members of the genus and sequence similarities were compared with those obtained for the 16S rRNA gene. Among the 29 type strains, the mean sequence similarity of the gene (84.5 %) was significantly less than that of the 16S rRNA gene (90.7 %), indicating a high discriminatory power of the gene. Species of the genus were differentiated well by gene sequence analysis, except for JCM 6294, JCM 6292 and JCM 10003. The gene sequence analysis and the levels of DNA–DNA relatedness observed demonstrated that these three type strains are a single species. Consequently, and are heterotypic synonyms of . This study suggests that the gene is an alternative phylogenetic marker for the classification of species of the genus .
