Isolation and growth physiology of novel thermoactinomycetes.


A total of 34 thermophilic isolates identified as members of the genus Thermoactinomyces by a range of chemotaxonomic, microscopic and determinative biochemical tests, were isolated from two acid soils. Growth studies in shake flask and fermenter identified the isolates to be moderately acidophilic with growth occurring between pH 4.5 and 6.0 with optima at… (More)
