Abstract

SUMMARY

We questioned whether the penicillin binding protein (PBP) profiles of representativestrains from the 19 species varied within the genus and whether these profiles would be of taxonomic value. Seventeen of the 19 representative strains studied had distinct PBP profiles; only those of and wereidentical. The data support the inclusion of in the genus as a species related to but separate from and could not exclude , and from the genus. Comparative PBP analysis within the genus may therefore be useful taxonomically.
