Title: Assignment of the bacterial agent of urinary calculus in young rats by the comparative sequence analysis of the 16S rRNA genes of corynebacteria
Volume: 57
Page(s): 515-7
Year: 1995
Keyword(s): GENBANK/D37802 GENBANK/D37803 GENBANK/D37804 GENBANK/D37805 GENBANK/D37806 GENBANK/D37876 GENBANK/D37914 GENBANK/D37915 Animals Base Sequence Corynebacterium/classification/genetics/*isolation & purification Corynebacterium Infections/diagnosis/*veterinary DNA Primers Evolution Genes, Bacterial Molecular Sequence Data Polymerase Chain Reaction/methods RNA, Ribosomal, 16S/*genetics Rats Rats, Inbred Lew *Rodent Diseases Urinary Calculi/microbiology/*veterinary
Remarks: Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing was used to assign four isolates of spontaneous urinary calculus in young laboratory rats. The phylogenetic relationships among the rat isolates and selected species of corynebacteria were also inferred. Based on the homology and evolutionary distance analysis, the 16S rRNA genes of the rat isolates were almost identical with that of Corynebacterium renale ATCC 19412. Also the results of the phylogenetic analysis showed a close relationship among the isolates and C. renale, but they were clearly different from C. pilosum, C. cystitidis, C. kutscheri and Rhodococcus equi. The results of the present study and previously published biochemical data demonstrate that the organism involving urinary infections in young rats is identified to be C. renale.

Remarks: The 16S rRNA gene sequences of 30 strains representing 23 validated Corynebacterium species and 7 currently non-valid Corynebacterium species were determined. These sequences were aligned with the sequences of other Corynebacterium species and related actinomycete taxa. A comparative sequence analysis revealed that there is considerable phylogenetic depth and internal structure in the genus Corynebacterium. Turicella otitidis and the amycolate species Corynebacterium amycolatum were located at the periphery of the genus Corynebacterium. It was evident that the species of the genus Corynebacterium form a monophyletic association and, together with other chemotype IV and mycolic acid-containing taxa (including the genera Dietzia, Gordona, Mycobacterium, Nocardia, Rhodococcus, and Tsukamurella), form a natural suprageneric group.

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.
