An update of the structure and 16S rRNA gene sequence-based definition of higher ranks of the class Actinobacteria, with the proposal of two new suborders and four new families and emended
The higher ranks of the class Actinobacteria were proposed and described in 1997. At each rank, the taxa were delineated from each other solely on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence phylogeneticExpand
Amycolicicoccus subflavus gen. nov., sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from a saline soil contaminated by crude oil.
Two novel actinomycetes, designated DQS3-9A1(T) and DQS3-9A2, were isolated from a saline soil contaminated with crude oil in the Shengli Oilfield in China. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequenceExpand
Bacterial and archaeal diversities in Yunnan and Tibetan hot springs, China.
Thousands of hot springs are located in the north-eastern part of the Yunnan-Tibet geothermal zone, which is one of the most active geothermal areas in the world. However, a comprehensive andExpand
Haloactinospora alba gen. nov., sp. nov., a halophilic filamentous actinomycete of the family Nocardiopsaceae.
A novel halophilic, filamentous, actinomycete strain, designated YIM 90648(T), was isolated from a salt lake in Xinjiang Province, north-west China, and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study.Expand
Diversity of Crenarchaeota in terrestrial hot springs in Tengchong, China
Diversity of Crenarchaeota was investigated in eight terrestrial hot springs (pH 2.8–7.7; temperature 44–96°C) located in Tengchong, China, using 16S rRNA gene phylogenetic analysis. A total of 826Expand
Description of Sinobacter flavus gen. nov., sp. nov., and proposal of Sinobacteraceae fam. nov.
A novel Gram-negative, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterium, designated CW-KD 4(T), was isolated from a polluted soil sample collected from Jiangsu Province, China, by using a classic enrichment method.Expand
Prokaryotic systematics in the genomics era
As an essential and basic biological discipline, prokaryotic systematics is entering the era of genomics. This paradigmatic shift is significant not only for understanding molecular phylogeny at theExpand
Thermobifida halotolerans sp. nov., isolated from a salt mine sample, and emended description of the genus Thermobifida.
The actinomycete strain YIM 90462T was isolated from a salt mine sample collected from Yunnan province, south-west China. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis demonstrated that the isolate,Expand
Seperation, identification and analysis of pigment (melanin) production in Streptomyces
Nine strains among 180 Streptomyces isolates produce a diffusible dark brown pigment on both peptone-yeast extract agar and synthetic tyrosine-agar. They also show the positive reaction to LtyrosineExpand
Streptomonospora halophila sp. nov., a halophilic actinomycete isolated from a hypersaline soil.
An actinomycete strain, designated YIM 91355(T), was isolated from a soil sample collected from a hypersaline soil in Xinjiang Province, China, and its taxonomic position was investigated by using aExpand
