Longispora albida gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel genus of the family Micromonosporaceae.
A novel actinomycete strain was isolated from a soil sample collected in Japan by using gellan gum as a solidifying agent and it is proposed that this strain should be classified in a novel genus and species, Longispora albida gen. nov. Expand
Growth and production of the inshore marine copepod Pseudodiaptomus marinus in the central part of the Inland Sea of Japan
The growth and production of the inshore marine copepod Pseudodiaptomus marinus was studied in the central part of the Inland Sea of Japan. The stage-specific growth rate was determined underExpand
A new alkaloid AM-2282 OF Streptomyces origin. Taxonomy, fermentation, isolation and preliminary characterization.
The producing strain, AM-2282 was classified as a new species and the name, Streptomyces staurosporeus AWAYA, TAKAHASHI and OMURA, nov. is proposed to show antimicrobial activity against fungi and yeast. Expand
Staurosporine, a potentially important gift from a microorganism.
Discovery of Staurosporine Chemical Properties and Inhibitory Activity of Stauntonine against Protein Kinases in Vitro. Expand
Kitasatosporia, a new genus of the order Actinomycetales.
The morphological, cultural, physiological and biochemical characteristics of a new actinomycete strain producing a new antibiotic, setamycin are described and the name Kitasatosporia is proposed, for which the type species is K. setalba. Expand
Description of two novel species of the genus Kitasatospora Omura et al. 1982, Kitasatospora cineracea sp. nov. and Kitasatospora niigatensis sp. nov.
DNA-DNA hybridization and comparison of physiological characteristics revealed that strains SK-3255T and SK-3406T differed from known species, and two novel species are proposed, Kitasatospora cineracea sp. Expand
Two new species of the genus Kitasatosporia, Kitasatosporia phosalacinea sp. nov. and Kitasatosporia griseola sp. nov.
Two new species of the genus Kitasatosporia are described, one of which produces a new peptide antibiotic, phosalacine, and the other produces a known antibiotic, setamycin. Expand
Culture conditions for screening of new antibiotics.
Neoxaline, a new alkaloid produced by Aspergillus japonicus. Production, isolation and properties.
A new alkaloid named neoxaline has been isolated from culture broth of Aspergillus japonicug Fg-551 by solvent extraction and silica gel chromatography. The compound does not possess antimicrobialExpand
Rare Actinomycetes Isolated from Desert Soils
Nine strains were rare actinomycetes containing meso-diaminopimelic acid in the cell wall that belonged to genera Microbispora, Nocardia, Microtetraspora, Amycolatopsis, Actinomadura and Saccharothrix, and could grow even at 50°C. Expand
