AN INTEGRATED PROCEDURE FOR THE EXTRACTION OF BACTERIAL ISOPRENOID QUINONES AND POLAR LIPIDS
TLDR
A simple small-scale procedure for the sequential extraction of isoprenoid quinones and polar lipids from bacterial cells was developed and the extracted organisms were analyzed to give a polar lipid extract. Expand

Polar Lipid Composition in the Classification of Nocardia and Related Bacteria
TLDR
Unidentified glycolipids were detected in the lipids of a majority of the organisms investigated and phosphatidylglycerol was present in substantial amounts in extracts of two strains of Bacterionema matruchotii and in reduced proportions in strains of several other species. Expand
Distribution of menaquinones in actinomycetes and corynebacteria.
TLDR
Menaquinones were the only isoprenoid quinones found in 48 corynebacteria and actinomycete strains examined, and Actinomadura dassonvillei strains had a characteristic pattern of di-, tetra- and hexahydromenaquinONES with 10 isoprene units which was slightly different from the pattern in mixtures of similar quInones from Actinomyces israelii and Act inomyces viscosus.

Numerical classification of Streptomyces and related genera.
TLDR
The phenetic data obtained, together with those from previous diverse studies, indicated that the genera Actinopycnidium, Actinosporangium, Chainia, Elytrosporangia, Kitasatoa and Microellobosporia should be reduced to synonyms of Streptomyces, while IntrasporangIUM, Nocardioides and Streptoverticillium remained as distinct genera in the familyStreptomycetaceae.

A numerical classification of the genus Bacillus.
TLDR
Three hundred and sixty-eight strains of aerobic, endospore-forming bacteria which included type and reference cultures of Bacillus and environmental isolates were studied and it is proposed that the following names be recognized. Expand
Ecology of actinomycetes.
Les actinomycetes sont tres largement distribues dans les ecosystemes terrestres et les ecosystemes aquatiques. Ils incluent aussi des zoopathogenes et des phytopathogenes
A phylogenetic analysis of the genus Nocardia with 16S rRNA gene sequences.
TLDR
The results of isoprenoid quinone analyses provided evidence that nocardiae can be distinguished from all other actinomycete taxa on the basis of their characteristic menaquinone profiles. Expand
New primers for the class Actinobacteria: application to marine and terrestrial environments.
TLDR
The proposition that current culture-based techniques drastically underestimate the diversity of Actinobacteria in the environment is reinforced and the need to evaluate taxon-specific primers regularly is highlighted in line with improvements in databases holding 16S rDNA sequences. Expand
Actinomycetes for Marine Drug Discovery Isolated from Mangrove Soils and Plants in China
TLDR
It is concluded that actinomycetes isolated from mangrove habitats are a potentially rich source for the discovery of anti-infection and anti-tumor compounds, and of agents for treating neurodegenerative diseases and diabetes. Expand
