The 16S ribosomal RNA gene from the beer-spoilage organism,Megasphaera cerevisiae was polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-amplified and sequenced. Analysis confirmed the phylogenetic position ofM. cerevisiae as a sister taxon ofMegasphaera elsdenii, within the obligately anaerobic, Gram-negative cocci. The sequence obtained should facilitate the development of DNA probes for early detection of this spoilage organism.
