Abstract

Twenty alkalophilic actinomycetes with optimum growth pH of 9·0 to 9·5 were isolated. Although these new isolates morphologically closely resembled conventional streptomycetes containing -diaminopimelic acid, nine out of 20 isolates contained -diaminopimelic acid.

Among 420 International Project (ISP) strains tested for their maximum growth pH, only 6 strains grew at pH 11·5. Of these six strains, three strains, ISP 5103, ISP 5465 and ISP 5011 contained -diaminopimelic acid.
