Abstract

Three short spore chain-forming actinomycete strains were isolated from soil samples collected from subtropical islands in Japan. The cell-wall peptidoglycan of these strains contained -diaminopimelic acid (-Apm), glutamic acid and alanine. The major isoprenoid quinone was MK-9(H), iso-C and 2-OH iso-C were the major cellular fatty acids and phosphatidylethanolamine was a component of the polar lipids. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 67–69 mol%. Phylogenetic analyses based on the 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the novel strains consistently formed a monophyletic cluster with . On the basis this polyphasic taxonomical study, it is proposed that the two new isolates represent two novel species: (type strain TT00-43=NBRC 103394=KCTC 19329) and (type strain TT99-32=NBRC 103392=KCTC 19330).
