  • a The uppercase letters indicate bands derived from 16S rDNA, and the lowercase letters indicate bands derived from 16S rRNA.

  • b The database entry with the highest level of identity is shown. When the most similar sequence was the sequence of an unidentified bacterium or environmental clone, the value for the most closely related identified bacterium is also given.
