A novel xylan-degrading bacterium, YB-45(T), was isolated from forest soil. The organism is a facultatively anaerobic, Gram-variable, motile, endospore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium. It grew optimally at 37 degrees C and pH 7.5 in the presence of 3 % (w/v) NaCl. The predominant cellular fatty acids were anteiso-C(15 : 0), iso-C(15 : 0) and C(16 : 0). The DNA G+C content was 51.7 mol% and the predominant menaquinone was MK-7. Growth was observed with many carbohydrates, including xylan, as sole… CONTINUE READING
