Abstract

A novel actinomycete, designated strain OU-63, was isolated from garden soil collected on the campus of Osmania University in Hyderabad, southern India. The strain was found to have morphological and chemotaxonomic characteristics typical of the genus . Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the strain belonged to the genus , and was related most closely to NBRC 12753 (98.6 % similarity). However, the mean level of DNA–DNA relatedness between the two strains was only 25±1.73 %. Based on DNA–DNA relatedness, morphological and phenotypic data, strain OU-63 could be distinguished from the type strains of phylogenetically related species. It is therefore considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is OU-63 (=CCTCC AA209025 =PCM 2690).
