Title: Phylogenetic analysis of the genera Cellulomonas, Promicromonospora, and Jonesia and proposal to exclude the genus Jonesia from the family Cellulomonadaceae

Remarks: The 16S rRNA gene sequences of eight Cellulomonas species, two Promicromonospora species, and Jonesia denitrificans were determined, and these sequences were compared with the sequences of about 50 representatives of the Arthrobacter line of descent in the order Actinomycetales. We found that in spite of its current assignment to the family Cellulomonadaceae, J. denitrificans branches outside the radiation of this taxon and cannot be considered a member of it. The two Promicromonospora species do not cluster separately from Cellulomonas species and are more closely related to Cellulomonas species than to each other.

Title: Conserved indels in protein sequences that are characteristic of the phylum Actinobacteria
Volume: 55
Page(s): 2401-12
Year: 2005
Keyword(s): Actinobacteria/chemistry/*classification/genetics Bacterial Proteins/*analysis/chemistry/genetics Conserved Sequence/*genetics RNA, Ribosomal, 16S/*analysis/genetics Sequence Deletion
Remarks: Gram-positive bacteria with a high G+C content are currently recognized as a distinct phylum, Actinobacteria, on the basis of their branching in 16S rRNA trees. Except for an insert in the 23S rRNA, there are no unique biochemical or molecular characteristics known at present that can distinguish this group from all other bacteria. In this work, three conserved indels (i.e. inserts or deletions) are described in three widely distributed proteins that are distinctive characteristics of the Actinobacteria and are not found in any other groups of bacteria. The identified signatures are a 2 aa deletion in cytochrome-c oxidase subunit 1 (Cox1), a 4 aa insert in CTP synthetase and a 5 aa insert in glutamyl-tRNA synthetase (GluRS). Additionally, the actinobacterial specificity of the large insert in the 23S rRNA was also tested. Using primers designed for conserved regions flanking these signatures, fragments of most of these genes were amplified from 23 actinobacterial species, covering many different families and orders, for which no sequence information was previously available. All the 61 sequenced fragments, except two in GluRS, were found to contain the indicated signatures. The presence of these signatures in various species from 20 families within this phylum provides evidence that they are likely distinctive characteristics of the entire phylum, which were introduced in a common ancestor of this group. The absence of all four of these signatures in Symbiobacterium thermophilum suggests that this species, which is distantly related to other actinobacteria in 16S rRNA and CTP synthetase trees, may not be a part of the phylum Actinobacteria. The identified signatures provide novel molecular means for defining and circumscribing the phylum Actinobacteria. Functional studies on them should prove helpful in understanding novel biochemical and physiological characteristics of this group of bacteria.

Note:

The Culture Collections hold cell cultures, bacteria, fungi and virus strains from worldwide sources. Our scientists ensure that the identification of the cultures is correct and they remain unchanged from when they are first deposited with the Collection. Nevertheless, some of the data we provide about the cultures is supplied by the person depositing the strains and, although we have multiple checking procedures in place, we cannot always verify all their data. Please note that the Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data provided by the depositors.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are to be used as controls for microbiology testing and for research purposes only. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.
