precipitated minerals is also present Fossil stromatolites constitute our earliest and most pervasive direct record of life on Earth and have been found in rocks dating back at least 28 billion years

the period of a billion years or so before Earth s atmosphere reached current levels of oxygen From Madigan and Martinko 2006 Prokaryotic diversity What is diversity and how is it measured One can imagine many types of diversity morphological functional evolutionary etc Each type of diversity might be of interest for different reasons Morphological diversity early editions of Bergey s Manual classified organisms according to shape because this characteristic could be easily measured Functional diversity in the study of pathogenesis one is interested in the functional diversity the ability to cause different types of diseases in different hosts Plant pathologists frequently name species of bacteria according to the plant they infect Similarly microbial ecologists frequently discuss groups of prokaryotes according to their role in geochemical cycling ie nitrifiers metliylotrophs Evolutionary diversity considers the ancestry of the organisms Implies that organisms whose last common ancestor is more ancient and more diverse Unlike other types evolutionary diversity can lead to a quotnaturalquot system of classification Systematics the scientific study of the kinds and diversity of organisms and of any and all relationships among them the classification of organisms in an ordered system designed to indicate natural relationships Classification the ordering of organisms into groups on the basis of their relationships genetic phenetic or phylogenetic Taxonomy the theory and practice of classifying organisms Identification the process of placing an individual into a given group Taxon Taxa a taxonomic group of any rank that is sufficiently distinct to be worthy of being assigned to a specific category Advantages of a natural classification it is explanatory it is predictive it is conceptual ie it follows from and adds to our concept of what is a prokaryote Phylogeny the evolutionary history of an organism The phylogeny of prokaryotes has been difficult to study until the recent advent of molecular techniques Currently it is the basis for prokaryotic systematics The library metaphor Imagine that each prokaryote is a book in a library and your goal is to learn the contents of every book If the library is organized arbitrarily then you have to read very book to learn the contents of the library If the library is organized in a natural system you only have to read all of some books and only parts of the other books The remaining contents of the library can then be inferred from the location of the books The downside is that you also have to know the organizational principles Numerical Taxonomy Based upon the principles of Adanson an 18th century botanist A phenetic analysis in which taxa are de ned on the basis of overall similarity according to all possible tests of all possible strains where the results of each test are weighed equally number of tests lt40 not statistically signi cant 100 200 usually optimal number of strains upper limit usually about 300 characteristics for classi cation care must be taken to choose characters representative of many properties of the cell ie morphology biochemistry cell wall chemistry nutrition etc unit character a taxonomic character of two or more states which can not be subdivided logicallyftest are designed to delineate the unit characters Table 21 Characters for classifying

from different organisms to hybridize to each other Used as a measure of relatedness of the organisms Typically this involves these steps 1 Genomic DNA is isolated from each of the organisms to be tested 2 The DNA is sheared to about 500 bp in length and then melted or denatured to obtain t e monomers 3 The melted DNAs from each organism are mixed and allowed to reassociate under optimal conditions usually 25 C below the melting point of the duplex 4 Under these conditions DNA this identical rehybridizes quickly DNA that is similar rehybridizes but the complexes are less stable DNA that is dissimilar doesn t hybridize 5 Typically DNA from two related organisms will be a contain segments of DNA that are almost identical and hybridize well segments of DNA that are similar but not identical and hybridize slowly and form less stable complexes and segments of DNA that fail to hybridize at all 7 To compare the relatedness of genomes from different organisms one can determine the stability of the heteroduplexes determine the fraction of DNA that hybridizes TM or TSDH the melting temperature or the temperature at with 50 of the duplex DNA melts An indication of the stability of

Phenotype classical API Biolog rRNA sequencing DNA probes DNA sequencing FIG 2 Taxonomic resolution of some of the currently used techniques Abbreviations are de ned in the legend to Fig 1 Nomenclature of prokaryotes Prokaryotes are named according to the binomial system of naming plants and animals All species are named by a binary combination consisting of the genus name and the speci c epithet All species are based upon a type strain A type strain is made up of living cultures when possible of an organism descended from a strain designated as the nomenclatural type when the species name is first proposed The strain should have been maintained in pure culture and its characteristics should closely agree with those in the original description The type strain does not have to be and frequently is not typical of all the strains of the species It serves as a reference point if the taxonomy is later revised When the type strain is lost a neotype strain may be proposed The neotype strain should have properties similar to those of the original description All higher taxa have a type chosen from the lower taxa For instance a genus has a type species and an order has a type genus In this way all the taxonomic ranks are ultimately connected to a biological specimen or type strain However the species is the only taxonomic rank which is de ned by a consensus of workers in many different elds Prokaryotic taxonomy is governed by the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes ICSP formerly the International Committee on Systematic Bacteriology ICSB which is a committee of the International Union of Microbiological Societies IUMS The IUMS itself is a loose federation of national societies like the American Society for Microbiology or ASM The International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology IJSEM formerly the International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology IJSB is the of cial publication of the ICSB Prokaryotic nomenclature is governed by the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria 1990 Revision also called the Bacteriological Code Only taxa that are validly published have any of cial standing in the Bacteriological Code Taxa described before 1980 were validly published in the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names For taxa described since then the original proposal must either be published in the 1 SB or if published elsewhere appear on the Validation List of 1 SB The effective publication date is the date of validation Taxonomic ranks denotes ranks commonly used for prokaryotes subspecies often used to make important functional distinctions species genus phylum division kingdom domain not widely used outside of Microbiology not a formal rank Modern populations of prokaryotes Modern populations of prokaryotes have been studied by multilocus enzyme electrophoresis This methods enables investigators to distinguish between closely related strains Method 1 prepare a water soluble extract of about 10 cells 7 2 electrophoresis of extract on starch gels 3 detect individual enzymes by activity staining Reference Selander RKs DA Caugant H Ochman J M Musser MN Gillner and TS Whittam 1986 Appl Environ Microbiol 51 873884 Starch gel electrophoresis separates proteins on the basis of chargeand molecular weight Electrophoresis of proteins with a known amino acid sequence suggests that 8090 of the amino acid substitutions will produce differences in mobility Allozyme or electrophOretic variant is an orthologous protein with a different electrophoretic mobility It is roughly equivalent to an allele for a structural gene Activity staining in a mixture of proteins it detects a single protein on the basis of its enzymatic activity by the choice of substrates and reagents example for malate dehydrgge 1135

group of genetically identical or nearly identical cells that owe their similarity to a recent descent from a common ancestor in the absence of chromosomal recombination or genetic exchange Evidence for a low rate of recombination 1 In chemostats the rates of phagemediated and conjugative plasmidmediate recombination are very low about equal to the rate of spontaneous mutations 108 per cell

urmmm m r PCR of Environmental Samples Most common application is to amplify rRNA genes with the goal of determining what organisms are present in the community Community composed of many organisms Lyse cells and extract DNA to produce a mixture of genomic DNA Ideally all organisms should lyse with the same efficiency but what about spores Also if sone cells lyse very easily their DNA might become sheared during severe lysis procedures PCR ampli cation of 16S rRNA genes from genomic DNA This step increases the concentration of rRNA genes relative to the other DNA We would like all the rRNA genes to amplify at the same rate so that the proportion is the same as the genomic DNA in the original mixture rRNA genes are cloned so that the proportion of clones is the same as found in the PCR products Because the genomic DNA is at a lower concentration and does not have 3 A overhangs with Taq it is cloned at a much lower efficiency Screen the clones to identify the membeis of the original community Common methods for screening include sequencing and restriction fragment length polymorphisms RFLP PCR artifacts and biases for a review see Wintzingerode et a1 1997 FEMS Microbiol Rev 21 213229 Chimeras Formation of chimeric PCR products following an amplication of a mixed template some of the products appear to be formed from a fusion of the starting templates Wang and Wang 1996 Microbiology 142 11071114 showed that fraction of chimeras was related to the cycle number and relatedness of the mixture of templates but was independent of the presence of sheared DNA Composition of the rRNA gene may affect PCR ampli cation Secondary structure of rRNA may prevent successful ampli cation by blocking the action of the DNA polymerase rRNA from hyperthermophiles dif cult to amplify without the addition of denaturant such as 5 acetamide Reysenbach et al 1992 Appl Environ Microbiol 58 34173418 Thermus thermophilus rRNA genes amplified poorly compared to the genes of mesophiles Farrelly et al 1995 Appl Environ Microbiol 61 27982801 Mol GC for E coll Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa rRNA genes 5355 For T thermophilus the mol GC is 657 Presumably the high GC content inhibited complete denaturation and successful amplification Ampli cation of a mixture of closely related templates produced a variety of errors Speksnijder et a1 2001 Appl Environ Microbiol 67 469472 Most of the errors are single base substitutions Expected mechanism was formation of heteroduplexes in later cycles These would be repaired upon cloning in E coll producing chimeras of the starting sequences In the end the artifacts introduced sequence with 0212 sequence difference from one of the starting sequences RNA heterogeneity with a single organisms Most organisms contain more than one rRNA operon In some taxa the sequences of these operons are not always the same Usually these sequences possess very high sequence similarity but occassionally it can be as high as 1 For instance a 120bp nucleotide sequence containing the hypervariable region of the 16S rRNA gene was examined from 475 Streptomyces strains Display of the direct sequencing patterns revealed the existence of 136 heterogeneous loci among a total of 33 strains All of the substitutions conserved the relevant secondary structure The 33 strains were divided into two groups one group including 22 strains had less than two heterogeneous bases the other group including 11 strains had five or more heterogeneous bases Ueda et a1 1999 J Bacteriol 7882 See also Nubel et al 1996 Appl
