A bacterial strain, PY2(T), capable of oxidizing carbon monoxide, was isolated from a soil sample collected from a roadside at Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain PY2(T) was shown to belong to the genus Terrabacter and was most closely related to Terrabacter lapilli LR-26(T) (99.1 % similarity). Strain PY2(T) was characterized chemotaxonomically as having iso-C(15 : 0) as the predominant fatty acid, MK-8(H(4)) as the major menaquinone, ll… CONTINUE READING
