Strain OR362-8T was isolated from a biological soil crust sample collected from the southwestern arid lands of the United States of America, using BG11-PGY medium. Cells of OR362-8T were found to be rod shaped; occur singly, as pairs and in groups; non-motile; positive for catalase, oxidase, phosphatase and gelatinase; hydrolyze starch; contain iso-C15:0,(More)
Strain CMS 76orT, an orange-pigmented bacterium, was isolated from a cyanobacterial mat sample from a pond located in McMurdo Dry Valley, Antarctica. On the basis of chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic properties, strain CMS 76orT was identified as a member of the genus Kocuria. It exhibited a 16S rDNA similarity of 99.8% and DNA-DNA similarity of 71% with(More)
Two bacterial strains, CP153-3 and CP177-2, were isolated from biological soil crusts on the Colorado Plateau, USA, and assigned to the genus Patulibacter, according to 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and phenotypic characteristics. The strains were Gram-positive, aerobic and psychrotolerant and showed positive catalase and negative oxidase reactions. Cells(More)
A gram-negative, aerobic, obligatory halophilic, curved-to-spiral rod-shaped, uni- or bi-polar flagellated motile bacterium 139Z-12T was isolated from water samples collected from Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica as part of the Indo-German iron fertilization experiment “LOHAFEX.” The bacterium was positive for catalase, oxidase, and gelatinase, with(More)
A novel isolate, CP153-2(T), was obtained from topsoil biological crusts in the Colorado Plateau (USA). Colonies were black in colour due to melanin-like pigments when grown on oligotrophic medium, but not when grown on copiotrophic medium. Induction of melanogenesis was independent of growth phase or illumination conditions, including exposure to UVB and(More)
Strain CP2CT was isolated from biological soil crusts in the Colorado Plateau, USA. The isolate was aerobic, facultatively fermentative, Gram-negative, non-motile and red-pigmented (due to the presence of carotenoids), but did not contain bacteriochlorophyll a. The strain tested positive for catalase, oxidase and urease and was negative for lysine and(More)
A novel black yeast-like fungus, Exophiala crusticola, is described based on two closely related isolates from biological soil crust (BSC) samples collected on the Colorado Plateau (Utah) and in the Great Basin desert (Oregon), USA. Their morphology places them in the anamorphic genus Exophiala, having affinities to the family Herpotrichiellaceae(More)
Bacterial strain CP183-8(T) was isolated from biological soil crusts collected in the Colorado Plateau, USA. Cells of this strain were aerobic, non-motile, Gram-negative, psychrotolerant and formed beaded chains in the stationary growth phase. They contained C(16 : 1)omega5c and C(16 : 1)omega7c as major fatty acids. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis assigned(More)
A Gram-negative, aerobic, non spore-forming, non-motile, rod-shaped, yellow pigmented bacterium CP155-2T was isolated from a biological soil crusts sample collected in the Colorado plateau, USA and subjected to polyphasic taxonomic characterization. Strain CP155-2T contained summed feature 3 (C16:1 ω5c/C16:1 ω7c) and C18:1 ω7c as major fatty acids and(More)
