Abstract in another language

Ninety percent of cultured bacterial nitrate reducers with a 16S rRNA gene similarity of >97% had a narGor nosZ similarity of >67% or >80%, respectively, suggesting that 67% and 80% could be used as standardized,conservative threshold similarity values for narG and nosZ, respectively (i.e., any two sequences that are lesssimilar than the threshold similarity value have a very high probability of belonging to different species), forestimating species-level operational taxonomic units. Genus-level tree topologies of narG and nosZ weregenerally similar to those of the corresponding 16S rRNA genes. Although some genomes contained multiplecopies of narG, recent horizontal gene transfer of narG was not apparent.
