A Gram-stain-positive, non-spore-forming bacterium (GW5-5797(T)) was isolated on soil extract agar from sand collected at a depth of 5 m in the Caribbean Sea near Grenada. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and similarity studies showed that strain GW5-5797(T) belongs to the genus Nocardia, and is most closely related to Nocardia speluncae N2-11(T) (99.2% similarity) and Nocardia jinanensis 04-5195(T) (99.2%) and more distantly related to Nocardia rhamnosiphila 202GMO(T) (98.6%) and other Nocardia… CONTINUE READING
