Abstract

An actinomycete, strain TT 00-78, was isolated from soil from a sugar-cane field on Amami Island in Japan, using an SDS/yeast extract pre-treatment method, and the taxonomy was studied using a polyphasic approach. The chemotaxonomic and morphological characterizations clearly demonstrated that the strain belongs to the genus . 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies showed that the strain was closely related to the type strains of (98.6 %), (98.1 %), (97.9 %) and (97.7 %). However, the results of DNA–DNA hybridization and physiological and biochemical tests showed that strain TT 00-78 could be differentiated from its closest phylogenetic relatives both genotypically and phenotypically. Therefore this strain represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is TT 00-78 (=NBRC 102102=DSM 45066=KCTC 19208).
