Two bacterial strains, PC-142 and PC-147(T), isolated from poultry litter compost, were characterized with respect to their phenetic and phylogenetic characteristics. The isolates were endospore-forming rods that were reddish in colour after Gram staining. They were catalase- and oxidase-positive, were able to degrade starch and gelatin and grew at 15-40 degrees C and pH 5.5-10.0. The predominant fatty acids were anteiso-C(15 : 0), iso-C(15 : 0) and iso-C(16 : 0), the major respiratory quinone… CONTINUE READING
