Title: The genus Nocardiopsis represents a phylogenetically coherent taxon and a distinct actinomycete lineage: proposal of Nocardiopsaceae fam. nov
Volume: 46
Page(s): 1088-92
Year: 1996
Keyword(s): GENBANK/X97882 GENBANK/X97883 GENBANK/X97884 GENBANK/X97885 GENBANK/X97886 GENBANK/X97887 GENBANK/X97888 GENBANK/X97889 GENBANK/X97890 GENBANK/X97891 GENBANK/X97892 GENBANK/X97893 Actinomycetales/*classification Base Sequence DNA, Bacterial/analysis DNA, Ribosomal/chemistry Molecular Sequence Data Phenotype Phylogeny RNA, Ribosomal, 16S/genetics
Remarks: The genus Nocardiopsis was shown to be phylogenetically coherent and to represent a distinct lineage within the radiation of the order Actinomycetales. The closest relatives of the genus Nocardiopsis are members of the genera Actinomadura, Thermomonospora, Streptosporangium, and Microtetraspora. The intrageneric structure of the genus Nocardiopsis is shown to consist of a highly related species group containing Nocardiopsis dassonvillei, Nocardiopsis alborubida, and Nocardiopsis antarctica and a second group of less highly related species comprising Nocardiopsis alba subsp. alba, Nocardiopsis alba subsp. prasina, and Nocardiopsis listeri. Nocardiopsis lucentensis occupies a position intermediate between the two species groups. The results of a 16S ribosomal DNA sequence analysis are generally consistent with the available chemotaxonomic, phenotypic, and DNA-DNA hybridization data. The phylogenetic position and the morpho- and chemotaxonomic properties of Nocardiopsis species support the creation of a family for the genus Nocardiopsis, Nocardiopsaceae fam. nov.

Title: A proposal to transfer Microbispora bispora (Lechevalier 1965) to a new genus, Thermobispora gen. nov., as Thermobispora bispora comb. nov

Remarks: We determined almost complete 16S rRNA gene sequences of two Microbispora bispora (Lechevalier 1965) strains, ATCC 19993T (T = type strain) and JCM 3082. The two sequences were 99% similar to each other but exhibited only 81 to 87.8% similarity with the 16S rRNA gene sequences of seven other Microbispora strains. A phylogenetic analysis revealed that the two sequences clustered not only distantly from other Microbispora strains, but also outside the cluster containing members of the family Streptosporangiaceae. On the basis of the results of our phylogenetic analysis and the results of a comprehensive review of the genus Microbispora by Miyadoh et al. (S. Miyadoh, S. Amano, H. Tohyama, and T. Shomura, J. Gen. Microbiol. 136:1905-1913, 1990) in which chemotaxonomic and DNA-DNA hybridization analyses were performed, we propose that Microbispora bispora should be transferred to a new genus, Thermobispora gen. nov., as Thermobispora bispora comb. nov.

Title: Sequence-based identification of aerobic actinomycetes
Volume: 42
Page(s): 2530-40
Year: 2004
Keyword(s): Actinobacteria/classification/genetics/*isolation & purification Aerobiosis DNA, Ribosomal/chemistry Nocardia/genetics/isolation & purification Phylogeny RNA, Ribosomal, 16S/genetics Sequence Analysis, DNA
Remarks: We investigated the utility of 500-bp 16S rRNA gene sequencing for identifying clinically significant species of aerobic actinomycetes. A total of 28 reference strains and 71 clinical isolates that included members of the genera Streptomyces, Gordonia, and Tsukamurella and 10 taxa of Nocardia were studied. Methods of nonsequencing analyses included growth and biochemical analysis, PCR-restriction enzyme analysis of the 439-bp Telenti fragment of the 65 hsp gene, susceptibility testing, and, for selected isolates, high-performance liquid chromatography. Many of the isolates were included in prior taxonomic studies. Sequencing of Nocardia species revealed that members of the group were generally most closely related to the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) type strains. However, the sequences of Nocardia transvalensis, N. otitidiscaviarum, and N. nova isolates were highly variable; and it is likely that each of these species contains multiple species. We propose that these three species be designated complexes until they are more taxonomically defined. The sequences of several taxa did not match any recognized species. Among other aerobic actinomycetes, each group most closely resembled the associated reference strain, but with some divergence. The study demonstrates the ability of partial 16S rRNA gene sequencing to identify members of the aerobic actinomycetes, but the study also shows that a high degree of sequence divergence exists within many species and that many taxa within the Nocardia spp. are unnamed at present. A major unresolved issue is the type strain of N. asteroides, as the present one (ATCC 19247), chosen before the availability of molecular analysis, does not represent any of the common taxa associated with clinical nocardiosis.

Remarks: Actinomycete strain YU127-1T (T = type strain), which produces zoospores, was isolated from a soil sample. The aerial mycelium of this organism at maturity forms short chains of spores. The hyphae form coils, and sporangia are not observed. Strain YU127-1T contains glutamic acid, glucosamine, glycine, alanine, and meso-diaminopimelic acid in its cell wall (wall chemotype II), 3-O-methylmannose, mannose, xylose, and glucose as whole-cell sugars, meanaquinone 10(H4), and glycolyl cell wall polysaccharides and has a guanine-plus-cytosine content of 69.0 mol%. Mycolic acids are absent. Phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylethanolamine are diagnostic phospholipids. The chemotaxonomic data, except for the lack of arabinose in the whole-cell sugars, indicate that this strain belongs to the family Micromonosporaceae. The morphological and physiological characteristics and chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data for this strain differ from those of the previously described actinomycetes. We therefore propose a new genus, spirilliplanes, for this organism; the type species of the genus is Spirilliplanes yamanashiensis sp. nov., and the type strain of S. yamanashiensis is strain YU127-1 (= IFO 15828).
