Abstract

An actinobacterial strain was isolated from subarctic forest soil, and subjected to polyphasic taxonomic characterization. The cell-wall peptidoglycan comprised -diaminopimelic acid, alanine and glutamic acid. MK-9(H) was the predominant isoprenoid quinone, and iso-C, iso-C and C were detected as the major cellular fatty acids. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that this organism was related to members of the suborders and . The phenotypic properties readily differentiated this organism from the phylogenetic neighbours. Based on the phenotypic and genotypic evidence, the strain is assigned to a novel species of a novel genus: gen. nov., sp. nov. with type strain TT07R-79 (=NBRC 105387 =KACC 14249).

Phylogenetic tree derived from 16S rRNA gene sequences of strain TT07R-79 and representatives of the order . The tree was reconstructed by using the neighbour-joining method. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of KCTC 3202 (U25952) was used as the outgroup. Numbers on branches are confidence limits (expressed as percentages) estimated using bootstrap analysis with 1000 replicates; only values >50% are provided. Bar, 0.02 nt substitutions per site.
