A taxonomic study was carried out on a novel aerobic bacterial strain (designated CC-LY736T) isolated from a fermentor in Taiwan. Cells of strain CC-LY736T were Gram-stain negative, spiral-shaped and motile by means of a monopolar flagellum. Strain CC-LY736T shared the greatest degree of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to Azospirillum irakense DSM 11586T(More)
A Gram-stain negative, aerobic, rod-shaped and non-spore-forming bacterium, CC-Bw-6T was isolated from chopped tomato stems. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of the strain CC-Bw-6T showed its affiliation with the genus Lysobacter within the class Gammaproteobacteria. Strain CC-Bw-6T was found to be most closely related to Lysobacter panaciterrae KCTC(More)
Phosphate-solubilizing yeasts have been under-exploited in eco-friendly maize cultivation. In this regard, soil yeasts Meyerozyma guilliermondii CC1, Rhodotorula mucilaginosa CC2 and M. caribbica CC3 were investigated for their plant growth-promoting (PGP) activities. Soil yeasts were isolated and characterized. Maize (Zea mays L. cv. Tainong No.1) and(More)
A novel, Gram-staining-negative, rod-shaped, aerobic and motile bacterium, designated strain CC-SKC2T, was isolated from the root tumor of a green bell pepper (Capsicum annuum var. grossum) plant in Taiwan. Cells were positive for oxidase and catalase activities and exhibited growth at 25–37 °C, pH 4.0–9.0 and tolerated NaCl concentrations up to 4.0 %(More)
A Gram-stain negative, strictly aerobic, zeaxanthin-producing, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacterial strain which is motile by gliding, designated CC-AMWZ-3T, was isolated from surface seawater off coastal Kending, Taiwan. Strain CC-AMWZ-3T was found to share 93.3 % and 96.0–92.4 % pairwise 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to Gramella echinicola KMM(More)
A Gram-stain negative, strictly aerobic, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming, motile cellulolytic bacterium, designated strain CC-AMH-0T, was isolated from surface seashore water of Hualien, Taiwan and subjected to polyphasic taxonomy. Strain CC-AMH-0T exhibited enzymatic saccharification of cellulose and active growth particularly during log-phase under(More)
A novel, Gram-stain negative, strictly aerobic, oval or rod-shaped, red-pigmented, non-spore-forming xylanolytic bacterial strain, designated CC-PR-82T, was isolated from surface seawater of Pingtung coast, Taiwan, and characterized by polyphasic taxonomy. Strain CC-PR-82T shared highest pairwise 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to Algoriphagus(More)
Uranium contamination is a topic of concern due to its toxicity to the environment and human health. Bioremediation has gained importance as a feasible and eco-friendly strategy. Bacteria tolerant to uranium and with phosphate solubilizing ability have proven to be important candidates in the development of bioremediation technology. In this context, we(More)
Identification of N-acyl-L-homoserine lactones produced by non-pigmented Chromobacterium aquaticum CC-SEYA-1 T and pigmented Chromobacterium subtsugae PRAA4-1 T P. Abstract Many members of the genus Chromobacterium produce violacein, a characteristic purple pigment which is induced by small diffusible N-acyl homoserine lactones (AHL) quorum-sensing(More)
