TAXONOMIC STATUS OF KITASATOSPORIA, AND PROPOSED UNIFICATION WITH STREPTOMYCES ON THE BASIS OF PHENOTYPIC AND 16S RIBOSOMAL-RNA ANALYSIS AND EMENDATION OF STREPTOMYCES WAKSMAN AND HENRICI 1943, 339AL
UNSPECIFIED (1992) TAXONOMIC STATUS OF KITASATOSPORIA, AND PROPOSED UNIFICATION WITH STREPTOMYCES ON THE BASIS OF PHENOTYPIC AND 16S RIBOSOMAL-RNA ANALYSIS AND EMENDATION OF STREPTOMYCES WAKSMAN AND HENRICI 1943, 339AL.

Species classified within the genus Kitasatosporia share many of the phenotypic characteristics typical of streptomycetes. By using a probabilistic identification scheme, they were identified with Streptomyces exfoliatus cluster 5, a species group within Streptomyces. The four species studied hybridized with a 16S rRNA genus probe for Streptomyces spp., indicating a close relationship between the two genera. The kitasatosporias were resistant to selected polyvalent streptomycete phages tested. Quantitative analysis showed that meso-diaminopimelic acid varied from 49 to 89% in Kitasatosporia species and from 1 to 16% in Streptomyces species depending on growth conditions. On the basis of 16S rRNA analysis, it is proposed to reduce Kitasatosporia to synonymy with Streptomyces. As a result, the new names proposed are Streptomyces mediocidicus comb. nov., Streptomyces phosalacineus comb. nov., Streptomyces setae comb. nov., and Streptomyces griseolosporeus comb. nov., nom. nov.
