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 soil isolate, strain CC-AB07T, was characterized using a polyphasic approach. This organism had chemotaxonomic and morphological properties consistent with its classification in the genus Gordonia. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that the novel strain formed a monophyletic branch at the periphery of the evolutionary radiation occupied by the genus(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)
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-negative, short rod-shaped micro-organism (CC-BB4(T)) was isolated on nutrient agar from soil from Sinshe in Taichung County, Taiwan. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence demonstrated that this isolate was novel, as it showed <92 % similarity to the sequences of species of the genera Labrys, Beijerinckia and Methylocystis. The micro-organism did(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)
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 molecules. In this study, the production of AHL of the non-pigmented C. aquaticum CC-SEYA-1(T) and the pigmented C. subtsugae PRAA4-1(T) were determined by using a CV026 biosensor(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)
