Cellulomonas phragmiteti sp. nov., a cellulolytic bacterium isolated from reed (Phragmites australis) periphyton in a shallow soda pond.


An alkalitolerant and moderately halophilic strain, designated KB23(T), characterized by optimal growth at pH 8.0-9.0 and in the presence of 5-7 % (w/v) NaCl, was isolated from a reed (Phragmites australis) periphyton sample originating from an extremely shallow, alkaline soda pond located in Hungary. Cells of strain KB23(T) were Gram-stain-positive, motile… (More)
