Title: Phylogeny of the genus Corynebacterium deduced from analyses of small-subunit ribosomal DNA sequences
Volume: 45

Remarks: We determined almost complete small-subunit ribosomal DNA sequences of 50 reference strains belonging to the genera Corynebacterium, Rhodococcus, and Gordona and compared these sequences with previously published sequences. Three phylogenetic methods (the neighbor-joining, maximum-likelihood, and maximum-parsimony methods), as well as a bootstrap analysis, were used to assess the robustness of each topology which we obtained. The results of comparative phylogenetic analyses confirmed that the genera Corynebacterium, Dietzia, Gordona, Mycobacterium, Nocardia, Tsukamurella, and Turicella form a monophyletic taxon within the phylum containing the high-Gcontent gram-positive bacteria. The genus Corynebacterium appeared to be a monophyletic unit whose members could be divided into four major clusters. The validity of the genus Turicella is doubtful since members of this genus clearly belong to the genus Corynebacterium. The variability of chemotaxonomic characteristics within the genus Corynebacterium suggests that small-subunit ribosomal DNA sequence analysis is probably the most straightforward method for confirming that a bacterium belongs to this genus.

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.

Contact us if you want to discuss commercial use of the cultures.
