The actinomycete strains YIM 90001(T) and YIM 90005(T) were isolated on starch-casein agar [20 % (w/v) NaCl, pH 7.0] from a soil sample collected from Xinjiang Province in the west of China. The two isolates were aerobic and Gram-positive. The substrate mycelium was fragmented and an aerial mycelium was well developed on Czapek medium. The aerial mycelium formed long spore chains with branched short or long spore chains at maturity, which were straight to flexuous, and spores were non-motile… CONTINUE READING
