A new antibiotic, cryomycin, was isolated from the culture filtrate of a facultatively psychrophilic streptomycete. As a result of taxonomic studies, it was considered a new subspecies for which the name Streptomyces griseus subsp. psychrophilus, YOSHIDA, TANI and OGATA, is proposed. The type strain is AKU 2881. This organism grows at 0-37°C and produces cryomycin at 0-18°C. Cryomycin is a peptide antibiotic containing a rather large amount of glycine in its molecule. It darkens at 214-217°C… Expand
