Abstract

A 453 bp fragment of , the gene encoding translation initiation factor 2, was sequenced and compared from 66 clinical isolates and type strains of species and related bacteria. Analysis of the partial sequences obtained suggested that the human isolates dependent on X and V factor, , , and some cryptic genospecies of , were closely related to each other. constituted a heterogeneous group within the boundaries of the genus, whereas and were only remotely related to the type species of the genus and took up an intermediary position and may not belong in the genus . Ambiguous results were obtained with seven isolates tentatively identified as , which fell into two discrete clusters. The delineation of ‘’ as suggested by analysis supports previous results obtained by DNA hybridization, in contrast to the delineation inferred from 16S rRNA sequence comparison.
