Abstract

Polyphasic characterization of an actinomycete strain VT-36 isolated from a sugar-cane field soil sample collected in Punjab State, India, revealed that the strain belongs to the genus . The strain's chemotaxonomic characters and G+C content of DNA (76·5 mol%) were typical of members of the genus. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence supported the generic affiliation of the strain and showed that its closest phylogenetic relative was F18-98 (=DSM 44665) (98·3 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). The similarities with type strains of all other species were in the range 95·1–97·0 %. The results of DNA–DNA hybridization showed 54 % relatedness of the isolate and F18-98. Based on the above data and the phenotypic differences from and other species, it is proposed that the isolate should be classified as the type strain of a novel species, sp. nov., with strain VT-36 (=MTCC 6546=DSM 44898=JCM 13010) as the type strain.
