‘Candidatus Midichloria mitochondrii’, an endosymbiont of the tick Ixodes ricinus with a unique intramitochondrial lifestyle

Citation
Sassera et al. (2006). International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology 56 (11)
Names
Ca. Midichloria Ca. Midichloria mitochondrii
Abstract
An intracellular bacterium with the unique ability to enter mitochondria exists in the European vector of Lyme disease, the hard tick Ixodes ricinus. Previous phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences suggested that the bacterium formed a divergent lineage within the Rickettsiales (Alphaproteobacteria). Here, we present additional phylogenetic evidence, based on the gyrB gene sequence, that confirms the phylogenetic position of the bacterium. Based on these data, as well as electron

Survival of Mycoplasma haemofelis and ‘Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum’ in blood of cats used for transfusions

Citation
GARY et al. (2006). Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery 8 (5)
Names
Ca. Mycoplasma haemominutum
Abstract
Blood transfusions are commonly administered to cats; associated risks include the transmission of various infectious diseases including Mycoplasma haemofelis (Mhf) and ‘ Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum’ (Mhm). Blood transfusions in citrate-phosphate-dextrose-adenine (CPDA-1) solution are commonly administered immediately or stored for up to 1 month prior to administration. It is unknown whether Mhf or Mhm survive in this solution or temperature. The purpose of this study was to determine if

First Report of the Causal Agent of Huanglongbing (“Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus”) Infecting Kumquat in Taiwan

Citation
Tsai et al. (2006). Plant Disease 90 (10)
Names
Ca. Liberibacter asiaticus
Abstract
Huanglongbing (greening) disease caused by a nonculturable, phloem-limited bacterium is a severe disease of citrus. On the basis of the influence of temperature on host symptoms and the causal agent, this disease can be categorized as Asian caused by “Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus”, African caused by “Ca. L. africanus”, and American caused by “Ca. L. americanus”. Kumquat (Fortunella margarita (Lour.) Swingle), a member of the Rutaceae is an economically important crop for export and local c

Amycolatopsis australiensis sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from arid soils

Citation
Tan et al. (2006). International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology 56 (10)
Names
Amycolatopsis australiensis
Abstract
The taxonomic position of a group of mesophilic actinomycetes isolated from arid Australian soils was determined using a polyphasic approach. The organisms shared chemical and morphological markers typical of members of the genus Amycolatopsis. They had identical 16S rRNA gene sequences and formed a distinct phyletic line in the Amycolatopsis mediterranei clade, being most closely related to A. mediterranei. In addition, they shared a range of phenotypic properties that distinguished them from r

Isolates of ‘Candidatus Nostocoida limicola’ Blackall et al. 2000 should be described as three novel species of the genus Tetrasphaera, as Tetrasphaera jenkinsii sp. nov., Tetrasphaera vanveenii sp. nov. and Tetrasphaera veronensis sp. nov

McKenzie et al. (2006). International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology 56 (10)
Names
Ca. Nostocoida limicola
Abstract
Despite differences in their morphologies, comparative analyses of 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed high levels of similarity (>94 %) between strains of the filamentous bacterium ‘Candidatus Nostocoida limicola’ and the cocci Tetrasphaera australiensis and Tetrasphaera japonica and the rod Tetrasphaera elongata, all isolated from activated sludge. These sequence data and their chemotaxonomic characters, including cell wall, menaquinone and lipid compositions and fingerprints of their 16S–23S
