Abstract

A novel carbendazim-degrading actinobacterium, designated djl-6-2, was isolated from the sludge of a carbendazim wastewater treatment facility in Jiangsu province, China. The morphological and chemotaxonomic properties of the isolate were typical of members of the genus . Strain djl-6-2 formed a coherent cluster with djl-6, DSM 44587, DSM 43066 and DSM 43954 in 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis. The results of DNA–DNA hybridization with the above strains (27.7, 19.3, 18.6 and 10.6 % relatedness, respectively), in combination with differences in biochemical and physiological properties, suggest that strain djl-6-2 should be classified within a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with djl-6-2 (=DSM 45257 =CCTCC AB 208292) as the type strain.
