Abstract

Summary: The phylogenetic relationship of the Gram-negative, filamentous gliding bacterium was analysed by 16S rRNA oligonucleotide cataloguing. In contrast to the proposed membership of this asporogenous species in the clusters phylogenetically with the Gram-positive eubacteria and the asporogenous species . The genetic relationship is supported by several common phenotypic properties.
