Abstract

A black-pigmented, aerobic actinobacterium, tolerant to ionizing radiation, designated BMG 825, was isolated from desert limestone dust in Tunisia. The strain grew within the temperature range 10–40 °C, at pH 5.5–11.0 and in the presence of 2 % NaCl. The DNA G+C content was 75.7 mol%, and its cell-wall peptidoglycan contained -diaminopimelic acid. Sugars of whole-cell hydrolysates were galactose, glucose, and trace amounts of ribose and mannose. The predominant menaquinone was MK-9(H), and the major fatty acids were iso-C and C 7c. The polar lipid profile comprised phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylinositol, diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, hydroxyphosphatidylethanolamine and an unspecified glycolipid. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the strain fell into the genus , showing the highest similarity with DSM 44209 (99.1 %). DNA–DNA hybridization results, phylogenetic distinctiveness and phenotypic properties supported the classification of this strain as a representative of a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is BMG 825 (=CECT 9003=DSM 46839‏).
