Abstract

The phylogenetic relationships of and were examined using reverse transcriptase sequencing of 16S ribosomal RNA. The sequences were aligned with other actinomycete sequences and a phylogenetic tree was constructed. ATCC 39323 and ATCC 31947 formed distinct sublines within the family . Their status as distinct genera was supported by the results of DNA: DNA pairing experiments. The inclusion of and and two unpublished spp. sequences in the rRNA analysis resulted in joining the family . In previous studies, this strain had formed an isolated line of descent. It is proposed that the genera and be classified in the family . Further work is needed to confirm the phylogeny of . Chemotaxonomic analyses of lipids and cell walls from support these findings and confirm previous work.
