Abstract

A novel actinomycete strain was isolated from a soil sample collected in Japan by using gellan gum as a solidifying agent. Spore-chains from the short sporophores were straight and each had more than 20 spores per chain. Spores possessed no motility. Cell-wall peptidoglycan contained -diaminopimelic acid, glycine, alanine and glutamic acid; whole-cell hydrolysates contained arabinose, galactose and xylose. The acyl type of the peptidoglycan was glycolyl. The predominant menaquinones were MK-10(H) and MK-10(H); MK-10(H) was a minor component. Mycolic acids were not detected. The diagostic phospholipid was phosphatidylethanolamine. Cellular fatty acids included heptadecenoic (C), 14-methylpentadecanoic (i-C) and octadecenoic (C) acids. The G+C content of the DNA was 70 mol%. On the basis of morphogical and chemotaxonomic properties and phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rDNA sequence data, it is proposed that this strain should be classified in a novel genus and species, gen. nov., sp. nov., in the family . The type strain is K97-0003 (=NRRL B-24201=JCM 11711).
