ABSTRACT A novel bacterial strain that was isolated from an Italian soil and was designated SOSP1-21T forms branched mycelia in solid and liquid media and has a filamentous morphology similar to that of some genera belonging to the Actinobacteria. Electron microscopy showed that this organism has a grape-like appearance, resulting from interlacing of spores originating from sporophoric hyphae. Ten strains that are morphologically related to SOSP1-21T were recovered from soil. Phylogenetic… 
Isolation of novel bacteria, including a candidate division, from geothermal soils in New Zealand.
TLDR
The results indicate that geothermal soils are a rich potential source of novel bacteria, and that relatively simple cultivation techniques are practical for isolating bacteria from these habitats.
Ktedonosporobacter rubrisoli gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel representative of the class Ktedonobacteria, isolated from red soil, and proposal of Ktedonosporobacteraceae fam. nov.
TLDR
It is proposed that strain SCAWS-G2T represents a novel genus and species, Ktedonosporobacter rubrisoli gen. nov., within the new family Kted onobacterales fam.nov.
Acidobacteria, Rubrobacteridae and Chloroflexi are abundant among very slow-growing and mini-colony-forming soil bacteria.
TLDR
The results indicate that there is a hidden culturable diversity of soil bacteria that may require laboratory study at colony sizes and incubation periods outside those commonly anticipated by most microbiologists.
Ardenticatena maritima gen. nov., sp. nov., a ferric iron- and nitrate-reducing bacterium of the phylum 'Chloroflexi' isolated from an iron-rich coastal hydrothermal field, and description of Ardenticatenia classis nov.
TLDR
The isolate grows by dissimilatory iron- and nitrate-reduction under anaerobic conditions, which is the first report of these abilities in the phylum 'Chloroflexi', which is capable of growth with oxygen, ferric iron and nitrates as a possible electron acceptor, has a wide range of growth temperatures, and tolerates higher NaCl concentrations for growth compared to the other isolates in thephylum.
Spore forming Actinobacterial diversity of Cholistan Desert Pakistan: Polyphasic taxonomy, antimicrobial potential and chemical profiling
TLDR
The study revealed that Cholistan desert harbors immense actinobacterial diversity and most of the strains produce structurally diverse bioactive secondary metabolites, which are a promising source of novel antimicrobial drug candidates.
Dictyobacter aurantiacus gen. nov., sp. nov., a member of the family Ktedonobacteraceae, isolated from soil, and emended description of the genus Thermosporothrix.
TLDR
A mesophilic, Gram-stain-positive, spore-forming bacterium that formed branched mycelia was isolated from paddy soil in Gunung Salak (Mount Salak), West Java, Indonesia and it was concluded that strain S-27T represents a novel genus and species.
New cultivation strategies for terrestrial microorganisms.
TLDR
This chapter reviews some of the factors that allow successful isolation of a wider phylogenetic representation of soil bacteria than has traditionally been thought to be possible.
Thermosporothrix narukonensis sp. nov., belonging to the class Ktedonobacteria, isolated from fallen leaves on geothermal soil, and emended description of the genus Thermosporothrix.
TLDR
A thermophilic, Gram-stain-positive, spore-forming bacterium that formed branched vegetative and aerial mycelia was isolated from fallen leaves on geothermal soil and is considered to represent a novel species, Thermosporothrix narukonensis sp.
Dictyobacter vulcani sp. nov., belonging to the class Ktedonobacteria, isolated from soil of the Mt Zao volcano.
TLDR
An aerobic, Gram-stain-positive, mesophilic Ktedonobacteria strain, W12T, was isolated from soil of the Mt Zao volcano in Miyagi, Japan and indicated that it represents a novel species in the genus Dictyobacter.
Diversity of Ktedonobacteria with Actinomycetes-Like Morphology in Terrestrial Environments
TLDR
The results suggest that unknown diverse Ktedonobacteria inhabit common environments including forests, gardens, and sand at low abundances, as well as extreme environments such as geothermal areas.

Cultivation of globally distributed soil bacteria from phylogenetic lineages previously only detected in cultivation-independent surveys.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a minimal change in cultivation strategy can result in the isolation of globally distributed but previously uncultured phylogenetically novel soil bacteria, as well as the number of cultivated strains known for others.
Antibiotic-producing ability by representatives of a newly discovered lineage of actinomycetes.
TLDR
These previously uncultured actinomycetes share several features with Streptomyces and related antibiotic-producing genera, and represent a promising source of novel antibiotics.
Phenotypic and phylogenetic characterization of some Eubacterium-like isolates containing a novel type B wall murein from human feces: description of Holdemania filiformis gen. nov., sp. nov.
TLDR
A group of Eubacterium-like strains, isolated from the feces of healthy people, was characterized by biochemical tests, fatty acid analysis, cell wall murein analysis, and 16S rDNA analysis, indicating that group S14 is phylogenetically a member of the Clostridium subphylum of the gram-positive bacteria.
Laboratory Cultivation of Widespread and Previously Uncultured Soil Bacteria
TLDR
The high degree of phylogenetic novelty and the number of isolates affiliated with so-called unculturable groups show that simple cultivation methods can still be developed further to obtain laboratory cultures of many phylogenetically novel soil bacteria.
Chloroflexus aggregans sp. nov., a filamentous phototrophic bacterium which forms dense cell aggregates by active gliding movement.
TLDR
It is proposed that a new Chloroflexus species should be created for the new isolates of thermophilic filamentous photosynthetic bacteria isolated from bacterial mats in two separate hot springs in Japan, and the name of this new species is Chlor oflexus aggregans.
New PCR primers for the selective amplification of 16S rDNA from different groups of actinomycetes.
TLDR
This work has developed selective primer sets for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of 16S rDNA from the Actinomycetales families Micromonosporaceae, StreptomycETaceae,Streptosporangiaceae and Thermomonospor Families, and from the genus Dactylospor Mangium, which showed high specificity and good sensitivity.
Novel anaerobic ultramicrobacteria belonging to the Verrucomicrobiales lineage of bacterial descent isolated by dilution culture from anoxic rice paddy soil
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis on the basis of 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequence comparisons indicates that the new isolates belong to a branch of the Verrucomicrobiales lineage and are closely related to a cloned 16S rDNA sequence (PAD7) recovered from rice paddy field soil from Japan.
Actinospica robiniae gen. nov., sp. nov. and Actinospica acidiphila sp. nov.: proposal for Actinospicaceae fam. nov. and Catenulisporinae subord. nov. in the order Actinomycetales.
TLDR
Differences in the phenotypic characteristics and in the 16S rRNA gene sequences suggest the description of two species, Actinospica robiniae gen. nov. (the type species) and ActInospica acidiphila sp.nov, both of which are proposed to accommodate actinomycete genera in the newly proposed family Catenulisporaceae.
Characterization and Identification of Numerically Abundant Culturable Bacteria from the Anoxic Bulk Soil of Rice Paddy Microcosms
