Abstract

The phylogenetic relationships of three mycolateless wall type IV actinomycetes, and , were examined using reverse transcriptase sequencing of 16S ribosomal RNA. The sequences generated were aligned and the level of sequence homology calculated. The homology values were then used to produce a phylogenetic tree and to estimate values for the construction of a dendrogram. Both analyses show the three taxa to be closely related genera which form a distinct subdivision within the broader phylogenetic grouping defined by and their relatives.
