Abstract

An actinomycete strain (0345M-7) was isolated from a soil sample from Yilan county, Taiwan. The isolate displayed substrate mycelia, upon which were borne short spore chains. The spore chains were composed of non-motile, smooth-surfaced, oval spores. Strain 0345M-7 had -diaminopimelic acid in its peptidoglycan. Whole-cell sugars were galactose, glucose, arabinose and ribose. The only phospholipid found was phosphatidylethanolamine. The predominant menaquinone was MK-9(H). Mycolic acids were not detected. Major cellular fatty acids were iso-C (38.1 %) and C (25.4 %). The DNA G+C content of strain 0345M-7 was 68.9 mol%. On the basis of phenotypic and genotypic data, it is proposed that strain 0345M-7 (=BCRC 16802=KCTC 19116) should be classified as the type strain of a novel species of the genus , sp. nov.
