A Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile actinomycete (strain MS 3/20(T)) was isolated from the sediment of the Sundarbans mangrove forest in India. On International Streptomyces Project (ISP) medium 2, the isolate produced yellowish brown to red aerial hyphae that carried spiny-surfaced spores in a retinaculum-apertum arrangement. Whole-cell hydrolysate of the strain contained LL-diaminopimelic acid and galactose. Predominant menaquinones were MK-9(H8) and MK-9(H6). Diagnostic polar lipids were glycolipid, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylcholine, unidentified phospholipid and unidentified amino lipid...

Previously we proposed the reclassification of a thermotolerant phototrophic bacterium, "<italic>Rhodopseudomonas cryptolactis</i>" Stadtwald-Demchick et al. 1990, as "<italic>Rhodoplanes cryptolactis</i>" nom. rev., comb. nov. with strain DSM 9987<sup>T</sup> (ATCC 49414<sup>T</sup>) as the type strain (Okamura, K., Hisada, T & Hiraishi, A. (2007) <italic>J Gen Appl Microbiol</i> 53, 357-361). However, while both the names "<italic>Rhodopseudomonas cryptolactis</i>" and "<italic>Rhodoplanes cryptolactis</i>" have not been validated, strain ATCC 49414<sup>T</sup> is no longer available from the culture collection...

Pseudomonas putida is well-known for degradation activities for a variety of compounds and its infections have been reported. Thus, P. putida includes both clinical and nonclinical isolates. To date, no reports have examined the phylogenetic relationship between clinical and nonclinical isolates of the P. putida group. In this study, fifty-nine strains of P. putida group containing twenty-six clinical, and thirty-three nonclinical, isolates, were subjected to phylogenetic and taxonomic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences and nine housekeeping gene sequences, including argS, dnaN, dnaQ, era, gltA, gyrB, ppnK, rpoB, and rpoD, to obtain insights into the diversity of species in this group...

The marine sponge-derived actinomycete, strain ST01-07T, was isolated from Xestospongia sp. collected from the Andaman Sea. The strain was characterised taxonomically by polyphasic approach. The strain contained meso-diaminopimelic acid in the peptidoglycan, whole cell sugars were arabinose, galactose, glucose, mannose, and ribose. Mycolic acids that co-migrated with those from the type strain of Nocardia araoensis NBRC 100135T were observed in whole cell extract. MK-8(H4-cycl) was the predominant menaquinone...

Three strains (14Y260T, 14Y268, and 14Y276) of xylose-assimilating yeasts were isolated from decayed wood and soil collected in West Java in Indonesia. A phylogenetic analysis was performed based on the sequences of the D1/D2 domains of LSU, SSU, and EF-1α, and the three strains were found to represent novel yeast species belonging to genus Pichia. The morphological, biochemical, physiological, and chemotaxonomic characteristics indicated that these strains were distinct from other closely related species...
