An actinomycete strain, designated IR27-S3(T), was isolated from a forest soil sample collected from Iriomote Island, Okinawa, Japan. Cells of the isolate were Gram-stain-positive, aerobic, non-sporulating, non-motile coccoids or short rods. The strain grew in the presence of 0-7 % (w/v) NaCl, at pH 6-8 and at 12-37 °C, with optimum growth at 30 °C. Chemotaxonomically, the strain contained LL-diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic diamino acid and MK-8(H₄) as the predominant menaquinone. The… CONTINUE READING
