Taxonomic studies on a new species, Kitasatosporia cystarginea are presented. Among the several species already described in this genus, this strain is characteristic in forming distinct spirals of spore chains. A significant properties of the species is the production of a new antifungal antibiotic, cystargin. 

Figures and Tables from this paper

A new antifungal antibiotic, cystargin: fermentation, isolation, and characterization.
TLDR
A new sulfur-containing peptide antifungal antibiotic, cystargin, was isolated from the fermentation broth of a new species of genus Kitasatosporia and showed a growth inhibitory activity against various phytopathogenic fungi and inhibition of beta-1,3-glucan synthetase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Studies on a strain of Kitasatospora sp. paclitaxel producer
The strain P&U 22869, which produces paclitaxel and related taxanes, discovered during the course of endophytic actinomycetes screening on Taxus baccata plants, was classified as Kitasatospora sp. on
Genus Kitasatospora, taxonomic features and diversity of secondary metabolites
TLDR
Although Kitasatospora strains resemble Streptomyces strains in morphology, they are clearly different in cell-wall composition, as they contain both LL- and meso-diaminopimelic acid.
Kitasatospora cheerisanensis sp. nov., a new species of the genus Kitasatospora that produces an antifungal agent.
TLDR
It is clear from polyphasic evidence that the isolate should be classified as Kitasatospora cheerisanensis sp.
Taxonomic study and morphological differentiation of an actinomycete genus, Kitasatospora.
Isolation of new actinomycete strains for the screening of new bioactive compounds.
TLDR
9 novel bioactive compounds from actinomycete strains isolated under unusual conditions are discovered, and two new genera, five new species and one new subspecies are proposed.
Kitasatospora viridis sp. nov., a novel actinomycete from soil.
The taxonomic position of a rhizosphere isolate, strain 52108a(T), was determined using a polyphasic approach. The strain was found to have chemical and morphological properties consistent with its
Five novel Kitasatospora species from soil: Kitasatospora arboriphila sp. nov., K. gansuensis sp. nov., K. nipponensis sp. nov., K. paranensis sp. nov. and K. terrestris sp. nov.
A polyphasic study was carried out to establish the taxonomic positions of six strains isolated from diverse soil samples and provisionally assigned to the genus Kitasatospora. The isolates were
Proposal of Streptomyces atroaurantiacus sp. nov. and Streptomyces kifunensis sp. nov. and transferring Kitasatosporia cystarginea Kusakabe and isono to the genus Streptomyces as Streptomyces cystargineus comb. nov.
TLDR
The genus Streptomyces could be divided into two clusters: a cluster consisting of species previously classified in the genus Kitasatosporia (tentatively called the `setae group') and the other consisting of the original StrePTomyces species on the basis of the ratio of diaminopimelic acid (A2pm) isomer in the cell walls, 16S rRNA analysis and phenotypic characteristics.
Kitasatospora putterlickiae sp. nov., isolated from rhizosphere soil, transfer of Streptomyces kifunensis to the genus Kitasatospora as Kitasatospora kifunensis comb. nov., and emended description of Streptomyces aureofaciens Duggar 1948.
TLDR
Genotypic and phenotypic data show that strain F18-98(T) should be classified in the genus Kitasatopora as a novel species, for which the name Kitasatospora putterlickiae sp.

Kitasatosporia, a new genus of the order Actinomycetales.
TLDR
The morphological, cultural, physiological and biochemical characteristics of a new actinomycete strain producing a new antibiotic, setamycin are described and the name Kitasatosporia is proposed, for which the type species is K. setalba.
A new antifungal antibiotic, cystargin: fermentation, isolation, and characterization.
TLDR

Chemical composition as a criterion in the classification of aerobic actinomycetes
TLDR
The results show that whole-cell sugar patterns can usually be used to predict cell wall composition and that the combination of both criteria permit separation of aerobic actinomycetes into 10 taxonomically useful groups.

SOME CHARACTERISTICS OF AERIAL AND SUBMERGED SPORES OF KITASATOSPORIA SETALBA
TLDR
Both kinds of spores were resistant to sonication, but sensitive to lysozyme digestion and moist heat and LL-2, 6-Diaminopimelic acid, alanine, glutamic acid and glycine were detected as the main constituents in the cell walls of the aerial and submerged spores.
