Anonymous. Notification list. Notification that new names and new combinations have appeared in volume 52, part 4 of the IJSEM. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2002; 52:1439-1440. Notes:
The 16S rDNA analysis, DNA-DNA reassociation, riboprinting, peptidoglycan analysis and determination of phenotypic properties of various strain of Cellulomonas turbata (Erikson 1954) Stackebrandt et al. 1983 reveal that they form a cluster that can be distinguished unambiguously from other Cellulomonas species by morphology, amino acid composition of the cell wall and 16 rDNA signatures. As a result of this polyphasic study, it appears taxonomically reasonable to re-establish the genus Oerskovia for Cellulomonas turbata.
