Abstract

Phylogenetic analysis of the almost complete 16S rDNA sequence of the fimbriate prosthecate bacterium confirms the unique phylogenetic position of this organism, as previously shown by oligonucleotide cataloguing and partial reverse transcriptase sequencing. Comparative 16S rDNA sequence analysis of with a group of environmental clones, considered to represent a novel phylum, reveals their relatedness, and allows assignment of these clones to a known main line of descent. This phylogenetic relationship is supported by the presence in the 16S rDNA sequence of of signature nucleotides previously considered unique for the environmental clone cluster.
