Abstract

An actinomycete, strain 4776, was isolated from soil collected from Emei Mountain in Sichuan Province, China. The taxonomic status of this strain was established using a polyphasic approach. The organism was found to have morphological and chemotaxonomic characteristics typical of streptomycetes. Phylogenetic analysis based on the almost complete 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that the novel isolate belongs to the genus and consistently falls into a clade together with DSM 40098, JCM 4603, DSM 40590, DSM 40095 and DSM 40198. However, DNA–DNA relatedness and phenotypic data distinguished strain 4776 from these phylogenetically related type strains. It is therefore concluded that strain 4776 (=CGMCC 4.3504=DSM 41884) represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
