Abstract

’ infects micronuclei of (, ), whereas ‘’ infects the macronucleus in other clones of the same host species. Because these micro-organisms have not been cultivated, their description has been based only on some morphological properties and host and nuclear specificities. One16S rRNA gene sequence of ‘ ’ is present in databases. The systematic position of the representative strain of ‘ ’, strain MC-3, was determined in this study. Moreover, for the first time, two strains of ‘ ’, KBN10-1 and AC61-10, were investigated. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that all three strains belonged to the genus family , order within the .
