An actinobacterium, strain YIM 70010T, which was isolated from a desert soil sample collected in Egypt, was subjected to a polyphasic taxonomy study. The organism was alkalitolerant and its optimum growth occurred at pH 8.0-9.0. The isolate contained chemotaxonomic markers that were characteristic of the genus Citricoccus, i.e. the peptidoglycan type Lys-Gly-Glu (variation A4alpha), the predominant menaquinone MK-9(H2) and a polar lipid profile consisting of diphosphatidylglycerol… CONTINUE READING
