The 16S rDNA sequences of four strains, i.e. three type strains of Actinobispora and strain 6330T, were determined and compared with those of representatives of the family Pseudonocardiaceae by using two tree-making algorithms. All the validly described species of the genera Actinobispora and Pseudonocardia were consistently recovered as a mixed group in(More)
A Gram-positive bacterium, strain J18(T), isolated from sludge of a foul water sewer, was subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Phylogenetic analysis of the bacterium based on its 16S rDNA sequence showed that it belongs to the genus Rothia and forms a distinct phyletic clade with the type strain of Rothia nasimurium. Morphological, physiological and(More)
A distinct actinomycete isolated from soil was subjected to polyphasic taxonomic analysis. It is demonstrated by comparative 16S rDNA gene sequencing that the organism, designated strain AS 4.0578T, represents a novel species of the genus Lentzea. The phylogenetic results also showed that it formed a monophyletic lineage distinct from the available members(More)
The taxonomic position of a soil isolate, strain 276(T), was established using a polyphasic approach. The organism showed a range of chemical and morphological properties consistent with its classification in the genus Nocardia. An almost complete 16S rRNA gene sequence determined for the strain was aligned with corresponding sequences of representatives of(More)
An actinomycete, strain FXJ46(T), was isolated from cypress forest soil in northern China and shown to have chemotaxonomic and morphological properties consistent with streptomycetes. It developed greyish aerial mycelium and pinkish-brown substrate mycelium on oatmeal agar. Phylogenetic analyses based on an almost complete 16S rRNA gene sequence of the(More)
The high mortality rate of immunocompromised patients with fungal infections and the limited availability of highly efficacious and safe agents demand the development of new antifungal therapeutics. To rapidly discover such agents, we developed a high-throughput synergy screening (HTSS) strategy for novel microbial natural products. Specifically, a(More)
A Gram-positive, rod-shaped, non-motile bacterium, designated strain wged11T, was isolated from the root of ginseng, and its taxonomic position was established using a polyphasic approach. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that this organism formed a robust clade with recognized species of the genus Leifsonia. Strain wged11T was(More)
The taxonomic positions of two gamma- and UV-ray-resistant strains isolated from radiation-polluted soil in north-west China were determined in a polyphasic study. The organisms, designated R12(T) and R13(T), were Gram-stain-positive, non-spore-forming cocci, which contained MK-8 as the major respiratory quinone and C(16 : 1)omega7c and C(16 : 0) as major(More)
The taxonomic position of strain SD29(T), isolated from soil, was clarified using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The organism produced an elementary branching mycelium which fragmented into rod/coccus-shaped elements and it possessed meso-diaminopimelic acid, arabinose, galactose as diagnostic diamino acid and sugars, MK-9(H(2)) as predominant(More)
A high-G+C-content, Gram-positive bacterium, strain D10(T), was isolated from the root of Oroxylum indicum, a Chinese medicinal plant. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain D10(T) was a member of the genus Pseudonocardia and was most closely related, albeit loosely, to Pseudonocardia halophobica. Morphological and chemotaxonomic characteristics(More)
