A Gram-stain-positive, spore-forming bacterium, EAG3T, capable of growing on 3-nitropropionic acid as the sole source of carbon, nitrogen and energy, was isolated from the anterior gut of an earthworm (Eisenia fetida) reared at the Centre of Floriculture and Agribusiness Management of the University of North Bengal at Siliguri (26.7072° N, 88.3558° E), West Bengal, India. The DNA G+C content of strain EAG3T was 42.5 mol%. Strain EAG3T contained MK-7 and MK-8 as predominant menaquinones. The… Expand

Genome-based classification of Calidifontibacillus erzurumensis gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from a hot spring in Turkey, with reclassification of Bacillus azotoformans as Calidifontibacillus azotoformans comb. nov. and Bacillus oryziterrae as Calidifontibacillus oryziterrae comb. nov.
The results of phylogenomic and phenotypic analyses revealed that strain P2T represents a novel genus in the family Bacillaceae, and it is suggested that Bacillus azotoformans and Bacillus oryziterrae should be transferred to this novel genus as Calidifontibacillus azotosformans comb. Expand
