Abstract

The taxonomic position of a novel actinomycete, strain SA152, isolated from a sample of Algerian Saharan soil, was determined using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The strain produced abundant aerial mycelium and fragmented substrate mycelium on most media tested. Chemotaxonomically and phylogenetically, the strain was related to the members of the genus . Results of 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison revealed that strain SA152 shared the highest degree of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with NBRC 101911 (99.3 %) and NRRL B-16134 (98.9 %). However, DNA–DNA hybridization studies showed only 16.2 % relatedness with DSM 44896 and 33.9 % relatedness with DSM 44231. Based upon genotypic and phenotypic differences from other members of the genus, a novel species, sp. nov., is proposed, with SA152 ( = DSM 45456 = CCUG 60213) as the type strain.
