Title: Re-evaluation of the taxonomic position of Streptococcus ferus
Volume: 52

Remarks: Streptococcus ferus was originally isolated from rats and, although it is often considered a member of the 'mutans group' streptococci on the basis of phenotypic criteria, its phylogenetic position has not been investigated. Here, the relationship of this organism to other streptococcal groups has been determined by DNA-DNA hybridization and by partial sequencing of 16S rDNA and the sodA gene. S. ferus was found to be distantly related to all currently described streptococci, with no strong evidence in support of its inclusion within any of the currently recognized streptococcal groups.

Title: Intrageneric structure of Streptococcus based on comparative analysis of small-subunit rRNA sequences

Remarks: The partial 16S rRNA sequences of 24 Streptococcus species were determined by reverse transcription. A comparative analysis of these sequences and the sequences of seven previously studied streptococcal species revealed the presence of several clusters within the genus. The clusters obtained from the sequence analysis agreed in general with the groups outlined on the basis of the results of nucleic acid hybridization studies, but there were some exceptions. The pyogenic group was extended to include Streptococcus agalactiae, S. parauberis, S. porcinus, and S. uberis. Four oral groups were discerned; these four groups centered on S. mutans, S. salivarius, S. anginosus, and S. oralis. Some species (e.g., S. suis and S. acidominimus) did not cluster with any particular group. Our findings are discussed in the context of data from other genetic and chemotaxonomic studies.

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.
