Abstract

An actinomycete, designated strain E71, was isolated from the stem of Wall, a Chinese medicinal plant, and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Phylogenetic analyses based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that the organism was a member of the genus , and formed a distinct phyletic line distantly related to recognized species of the genus . Morphological and chemotaxonomic data supported the affiliation of strain E71 to the genus . A number of physiological properties and a unique menaquinone profile allowed differentiation of the strain from related species. It is therefore proposed that strain E71 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is E71 (=CGMCC 4.3147=DSM 45047).
