Nineteen gram-negative, aerobic, biodegradative isolates were identified by using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The presence of the specific polyamine 2-hydroxyputrescine and the presence of a ubiquinone with eight isoprenoid units in the side chain (ubiquinone Q-8) allowed allocation of these organisms to the beta subclass of the Proteobacteria. On the basis of the results of additional characterization experiments (i.e., API 20NE tests, determinations of soluble protein patterns, and DNA… CONTINUE READING
