Abstract

A novel actinomycete, designated strain 3H-GS17, was isolated from the head of an ant ( L.) and characterized using a polyphasic approach. 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity studies showed that strain 3H-GS17 belongs to the genus with high sequence similarity to JCM 9376 (98.13 %) and JCM 9377 (97.64 %). The chemotaxonomic properties of strain 3H-GS17 were also consistent with those of members of the genus . The cell wall contained -diaminopimelic acid and whole-cell sugars were ribose, mannose, glucose, galactose and madurose. The predominant menaquinones were MK-9(H), MK-9(H) and MK-9(H). The phospholipid profile consisted of diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylinositol mannoside. The major fatty acids were C and Cω7. A combination of DNA–DNA hybridization experiments and phenotypic tests were carried out between strain 3H-GS17 and its closely related strains, which further clarified their relatedness and demonstrated that 3H-GS17 could be distinguished from these strains. Therefore, strain 3H-GS17 is concluded to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 3H-GS17 (=DSM 100595=CGMCC 4.7282).
