Abstract >>
Virgibacillus pantothenticus DSM 26(T) is a Gram-positive, spore-forming, aerobic, mesophilic, and halotolerant bacterium. Here, we report its 4.76-Mb draft genome sequence, which is the first genome information of V. pantothenticus and will promote biological research and biotechnological application for the species.

Proposal of Virgibacillus proomii sp. nov. and emended description of Virgibacillus pantothenticus (Proom and Knight 1950) Heyndrickx et al. 1998.

International journal of systematic bacteriology 49 Pt 3 (N/A)
PMID : 10425765 DOI  :   10.1099/00207713-49-3-1083    
Abstract >>
A polyphasic study of strains originally received as Bacillus (now Virgibacillus) pantothenticus, along with strains representing species belonging to Bacillus, Halobacillus and Paenibacillus, was undertaken using amplified rDNA restriction analysis (ARDRA), fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) analysis, SDS-PAGE of whole-cell proteins and routine diagnostic characters comprising 61 biochemical tests in the API system and 15 observations of vegetative cell and sporangial morphology. It revealed the presence within Virgibacillus of an as yet undescribed new species, for which the name Virgibacillus proomii is proposed; V. proomii can be distinguished from V. pantothenticus and members of Bacillus sensu stricto, and from members of Paenibacillus and other aerobic endospore-forming bacteria, by routine phenotypic tests. The type strain of Virgibacillus proomii is LMG 12370T.

Gracilibacillus gen. nov., with description of Gracilibacillus halotolerans gen. nov., sp. nov.; transfer of Bacillus dipsosauri to Gracilibacillus dipsosauri comb. nov., and Bacillus salexigens to the genus Salibacillus gen. nov., as Salibacillus salexigens comb. nov.

International journal of systematic bacteriology 49 Pt 2 (N/A)
PMID : 10319508 DOI  :   10.1099/00207713-49-2-821    
Abstract >>
A Gram-positive, extremely halotolerant bacterium was isolated from the Great Salt Lake, Utah, USA. The strain, designated NNT (= DSM 11805T), was strictly aerobic, rod-shaped, motile by peritrichous flagella and spore-forming. Strain NNT grew at salinities of 0-20% (w/v) NaCl. A distinctive feature of strain NNT was its optimal growth in salt-free medium. The polar lipid pattern of strain NNT consisted of phosphatidyl glycerol, diphosphatidyl glycerol and two phospholipids of unknown structure. The G + C content of its DNA was 38 mol%. The morphological, physiological and, particularly, the 16S rDNA sequence data, showed that strain NNT was associated with 'Bacillus group 1'. However, the organisms showing the greatest degree of sequence similarity to strain NNT were members of the genus Halobacillus and the species Marinococcus albus, Virgibacillus pantothenticus, Bacillus salexigens and Bacillus dipsosauri. On the basis of chemotaxonomic data, strain NNT was shown to be chemically most similar to B. salexigens and B. dipsosauri, with the greatest degree of similarity being shown to the latter organism. This was consistent with the 16S rDNA sequence data. Members of the genus Halobacillus comprise a chemically distinct group and can easily be distinguished from all other organisms of 'Bacillus group 1'. On the basis of the 16S rDNA data, chemotaxonomy and the physiology of strain NNT, it is proposed that this organism is a member of a new species, within a new genus, for which the name Gracilibacillus halotolerans is proposed. It is also proposed that B. dipsosauri be transferred to this genus as Gracilibacillus dipsosauri comb. nov. and that B. salexigens be transferred to the genus Salibacillus gen. nov., as Salibacillus salexigens comb. nov. Finally, additional data is provided to support the transfer of Bacillus pantothenticus to the genus Virgibacillus, as Virgibacillus pantothenticus Heyndrickx et al. (1998).
