Improved identification of Gordonia, Rhodococcus and Tsukamurella species by 5'-end 16S rRNA gene sequencing.
Based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, the most abundant Actinobacteria genera were Streptomyces (86.84%), followed by Nocardiopsis (4.93%), Brevibacterium (1.64%), Microbacterium (1.64%), Tsukamurella (1.64%), Arthrobacter (0.66%), Brachybacterium (0.66%), Nocardia (0.66%), Rhodococcus (0.66%), Kocuria (0.33%), Nocardioides (0.33%), and Pseudonocardia (0.33%).
evaluated the Biotyper system for identification of 147 isolates of aerobically growing gram-positive organisms, including Nocardia species, Listeria monocytogenes, Kocuria species, Rhodococcus species, Gordonia species, and Tsukamurella species (17).

Mycolata like Sphaerotilus spp., Leptothrix spp., Microthrix parvicella, Corynebacterium spp., Dietzia spp., Nostocoida limicola, Gordonia spp., Skermania spp., Mycobacterium spp., Nocardia spp., Rhodococcus spp., Tsukamurella spp., Type 021N, and Type 0041 play a role in foaming.
Mycolata (Rhodococcus, Mycobacterium, Nocardia, Corynebacterium, Gordonia, Dietzia, Skermania, and Tsukamurella) represent a specific taxon of [G.sup.+] bacteria that are extremely resistant to drugs and toxic hydrophobic compounds.
The distribution of these molecules is restricted to strains in the suborder Corynebacterineae which include the genera Hoyosella, Amycolicicoccus, Corynebacterium, Dietzia, Gordonia, Hoyosella, Millisia, Mycobacterium, Nocardia, Rhodococcus, Segniliparus, Skermania, Smaragdicoccus, Tsukamurella, and Williamsia [65, 66].
It has been reported that the co- culture of Streptomyces endus S-522 with the bacterium Tsukamurella pulmonis TP-B0596 induced the production of a new active compound (alchivemycin A) which was not produced in a pure culture [7].
