A halophilic actinomycete strain, designated YIM 91168T, was isolated from a salt lake in Xinjiang province, north-west China. The isolate grew at 20-40 degrees C, pH 5-8 and 6-22% (w/v) NaCl; there was no growth in the absence of NaCl. The whole-cell hydrolysate contained meso-diaminopimelic acid, galactose and arabinose. The major fatty acids were iso-C15:0, iso-C16:0 and iso-C17:0. MK-9(H4) was the predominant menaquinone and the genomic DNA G+C content was 70.1 mol%. These chemotaxonomic… CONTINUE READING
