Phylogenetic relationships of fluorescent pseudomonads deduced from the sequence analysis of 16S rRNA, Pseudomonas -specific and rpo D genes

ABSTRACT

Phylogenetic relationship of 22 FLPs was revealed on the basis of polymorphism in three genes namely 16S rDNA, Pseudomonas-specific and rpoD gene regions. The primers for 16S rDNA, Pseudomonas-specific region and rpoD gene region were amplifying a region of 1492, 990 and 760 bp, respectively, from all the isolates investigated. The RFLP analysis of the PCR products resulted in a classification of these fluorescent pseudomonads which was best answered by rpoD-based RFLP analysis. The 22 FLPs were placed in two major clusters and seven subclusters suggesting that these were genotypically heterogenous and might belong to several species within Pseudomonas sensu stricto. Sequence analysis of these three genes for three selected isolates AS5, AS7 and AS15 showed 16S rDNA and Pseudomonas-specific gene region phylogenies were generally similar, but rpoD gene phylogeny was somewhat different from these two genes. These results were also congruent with the results of RFLP of these three genes. rpoD provided comparable phylogenetic resolution to that of the 16S rRNA and Pseudomonas-specific genes at all taxonomic levels, except between closely related organisms (species and subspecies levels), for which it provided better resolution. This is particularly relevant in the context of a growing number of studies focusing on subspecies diversity, in which single-copy protein-encoding genes such as rpoD could complement and better justify the information provided by the 16S rRNA gene. Hence rpoD can be used further as an evolutionary chronometer for species-level identification.

Bootstrap values (expressed as percentages of 1000 replications) are shown at branch points. Bar 2 nt substitutions per 100 nt

Mentions: Along with 16S rRNA gene, Pseudomonas-specific gene was also analyzed (Fig. 5). This gene region was from V2 to V8 variable region of 16S rRNA gene and conserved within genus Pseudomonas. As expected the phylogenetic positions of AS5, AS7 and AS15 were similar with that obtained using 16S rRNA gene. In this phylogenetic tree, all the three strains were placed in a separate branch and their closest relative was P.frederiksbergensis. This concluded that phylogenetic positioning of the isolates within genus Pseudomonas with Pseudomonas-specific gene and 16S rRNA gene was almost similar. Pseudomonas-specific gene defines the phylogenetic position of P.fluorescens and P.aeruginosa strains better than 16S rRNA as isolates of both species were grouped into defined clusters.Fig. 5
