Kytococcus schroeteri Endocarditis
Figure. (A) Phylogenetic tree showing relationships among 16S rDNA sequences of clinical isolate ROG140 and type strains of members of the former Micrococcus genus. Nocardia asteroides was included as an out-group organism. The scale bar represents 1% differences in nucleotide sequences. (B) Sequence alignment of 16S rDNA nucleotides 983-992 and 1003-1014 of Kytococcus sp. type strains (TS) and clinical isolate ROG140. K. schroeteri molecular signatures are boxed. Nucleotide numbering refers to the sequence of the 16S rDNA of E. coli.
