A family of three novel aminofuran antibiotics named as proximicins was isolated from the marine Verrucosispora strain MG-37. Proximicin A was detected in parallel in the marine abyssomicin producer "Verrucosispora maris" AB-18-032. The characteristic structural element of proximicins is 4-amino-furan-2-carboxylic acid, a hitherto unknown gamma-amino acid.(More)
Dermacoccus abyssi sp. nov., strains MT1.1 and MT1.2 are actinomycetes isolated from Mariana Trench sediment at a depth of 10 898 m. Fermentation using ISP2 and 410 media, respectively, lead to production of seven new oxidized and reduced phenazine-type pigments, dermacozines A-G (1-7), together with the known phenazine-1-carboxylic acid (8) and(More)
Reports describing actinobacteria isolated from marine environments have been dominated by Micromonospora, Rhodococcus and Streptomyces species. Recent culture-independent studies have shown that marine environments contain a high diversity of actinobacterial species that are rarely, if at all, recovered by cultivation-based methods. In this study, it is(More)
The taxonomic position of actinomycete strain NN276(T), isolated from cave soil, was studied using the polyphasic taxonomic approach. A phylogenetic tree based on 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene sequences showed that the isolate formed a distinct evolutionary linage with the genus Microbispora, with M. mesophila JCM 3151(T) as its closest phylogenetic(More)
The taxonomic status of an actinomycete isolated from sediment collected from the Mariana Trench was established using a combination of genotypic and phenotypic data. Isolate MT8T had chemotaxonomic and morphological properties consistent with its classification in the genus Williamsia, and formed a distinct phyletic line in the 16S rRNA gene tree together(More)
Thirty-eight actinomycetes were isolated from sediment collected from the Mariana Trench (10,898 m) using marine agar and media selective for actinomycetes, notably raffinose-histidine agar. The isolates were assigned to the class Actinobacteria using primers specific for members of this taxon. The phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing(More)
The taxonomic positions of two actinobacterial strains isolated from Mariana Trench sediment were established using a combination of genotypic and phenotypic data. The strains, isolates MT2.1(T) and MT2.2(T), formed a distinct phyletic line in the Micrococcineae 16S rRNA gene tree together with Dermacoccus abyssi NCIMB 14084(T). The isolates had chemical(More)
A novel actinomycete, designated strain RM287(T), was isolated from surface-sterilized roots of Samanea saman (Jacq.) Merr., collected from Bangkok, Thailand. The status of the novel strain was determined using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the organism formed a distinct phyletic line(More)
In this study, actinomycetes from roots and rhizospheric soils of leguminous plants were isolated using starch casein agar supplemented with antifungal and antibacterial antibiotics. Three hundred and seventeen actinomycetes were isolated with 77 isolates obtained from plant roots and 240 isolates from rhizospheric soils. Analysis of whole-organism(More)
The taxonomic status of an actinobacterial strain isolated from Mariana Trench sediment was determined using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The strain, isolate MT1.1(T), formed a distinct clade in the Micrococcineae 16S rRNA gene tree together with Dermacoccus nishinomiyaensis DSM 20448(T). The organism had chemical and phenotypic properties consistent(More)
