In the course of our screening programme for cellulolytic activities, a novel actinomycete, strain NEAE 102, which produced high cellulolytic activities, was isolated from a soil sample collected from Dakahliyah governorate, Egypt. It developed ivory aerial mycelium and faint yellow substrate mycelium on yeast extract - malt extract agar. The colour of the substrate mycelium was not sensitive to changes in pH. The organism produced long, straight spore-chains with elongated, irregular and… Expand

It is established that the streptomycin-producing organism is dealing here not with a single species, but with group of closely related forms, and its re-evaluation and reinterpretation is justified at this time. Expand
Cooperative description of type cultures of Streptomyces.: II. Species descriptions from first study
Type specimens (strains) of the 100 species for which emended characterizations have been completed, are now deposited in the American Type Culture Collection and the Centraalbureau voor Schimmelcultures for distribution to other culture collections of the world as reference cultures. Expand
Numerical classification of Streptomyces and related genera.
The phenetic data obtained, together with those from previous diverse studies, indicated that the genera Actinopycnidium, Actinosporangium, Chainia, Elytrosporangia, Kitasatoa and Microellobosporia should be reduced to synonyms of Streptomyces, while IntrasporangIUM, Nocardioides and Streptoverticillium remained as distinct genera in the familyStreptomycetaceae.

Differential tolerance of streptomycetes to sodium chloride as a taxonomic aid.
In evaluating the relationships of NaCl tolerance to various taxonomic features, higher tolerance was statistically associated with the "yellow" and possibly the "white"-spored streptomycetes, whereas the "red"-spORED series tended to have lesser tolerance. Expand
