Spinactinospora alkalitolerans gen. nov., sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from marine sediment.

A novel marine actinomycete, designated CXB654(T), was isolated from marine sediment collected at a depth of 17.5 m near the Yellow Sea Cold Water Mass, China. Optimal growth occurred at 37.0 °C, at pH 7.0-8.0 and in 3-8% (w/v) NaCl. Strain CXB654(T) formed branched substrate mycelium without fragmentation. Abundant aerial mycelium differentiated into long… CONTINUE READING
