Lateral gene transfer of dissimilatory (bi)sulfite reductase revisited.

Author information

  • 1Department of Microbiology, Technical University of Munich, Freising, Germany.


In contrast to previous findings, we demonstrate that the dissimilatory (bi)sulfite reductase genes (dsrAB) of Desulfobacula toluolica were vertically inherited. Furthermore, Desulfobacterium anilini and strain mXyS1 were identified, by dsrAB sequencing of 17 reference strains, as members of the donor lineage for those gram-positive Desulfotomaculum species which laterally acquired dsrAB.
