Strain CMS 21w(T) was isolated from a cyanobacterial mat sample taken from a pond located in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica. Based on its phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic properties, strain CMS 21w(T) was identified as a member of the genus SPOROSARCINA: At the 16S rRNA gene level, CMS 21w(T) exhibited about 93-96 % similarity to all… CONTINUE READING
