A bacterial strain isolated from a fluoranthene-polluted soil was characterized with respect to its metabolic and chemotaxonomic properties, and its phylogenetic position was determined. This bacterium exhibits all of the genus-specific properties of the genus Mycobacterium and clusters phylogenetically with the group of fast-growing mycobacteria. On the basis of its unique fatty acid pattern, the distinctness of its physiological properties and the uniqueness of the primary structure of its… CONTINUE READING
