A coccoid, non-motile actinobacterium, designated strain YIM 70003T, was isolated from a saline, alkaline, desert-soil sample from Egypt. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the organism formed a distinct phyletic line within the genus Kocuria and was most closely related to Kocuria polaris DSM 14382T (98.6 % sequence similarity) and Kocuria rosea DSM 20447T (98.2 %). Chemotaxonomic data, including the Lys-Ala3 peptidoglycan type, the presence of… CONTINUE READING
