Abstract
Gray and Thornton's strain (ATCC 17041) of Mycobacterium coeliacum, here designated as the type strain of this species (which was later transferred to the genus Nocardia as Nocardia coeliaca), is a strain of M. rhodochrous (tentative generic assignment). The strain producing the antibiotic nocardin and similar strains, however, have been mistakenly labeled N. coeliaca. This report presents some of the characteristics of 27 of these mislabeled strains and demonstrates their close relationship to the type strain of N. autotrophica (Takamiya and Tubaki) Hirsch. The nocardin-producing strain and others like it are, therefore, assigned to N. autotrophica.

Abstract Ninety-six strains of aerobic actinomycetes with a type IV cell wall (major amounts of meso-diaminopimelic acid, arabinose, and galactose) were analyzed for the presence of mycolic acids and nocardomycolic acids. The method used was comparatively simple and permits the separation of these organisms into two groups: the mycobacteria and the nocardiae. In general, strains received as mycobacteria contained mycolic acids, confirming the generic assignment made by other methods. On the basi...

SUMMARY: Twenty-six strains of Nocardia dassonvillei (Brocq-Rousseu) Liegard & Landrieu from the soil and from infections of man and animals are described, and a pattern of characteristics for their identification and differentiation from N. asteroides, N. brasiliensis, N. caviae, N. madurae and N. pelletieri is presented. Strains of N. dassonvillei resembled strains of Streptomyces griseus (Krainsky) Waksman & Henrici in the macroscopic appearance of their growth and in many of the physiologica...

SUMMARY: In a continued search for a more suitable generic location for the species tentatively designated Mycobacterium rhodochrous (Overbeck) Gordon & Mihm, strains of some species of Corynebacterium, both animal and plant pathogens, were found to have the same morphology and the same, or nearly the same, physiological properties as strains of the species provisionally labelled M. rhodochrous. Additional tests and observations applied to the strains of the species M. rhodochrous resulted in a ...

Whole-cell hydrolysates were prepared from 58 strains of nocardiae and streptomycetes. Strains morphologically intermediate between the two genera and morphological variants of the same strains were included. Paper chromatograms made from the whole-cell hydrolysates clearly demonstrated meso-diaminopimelic acid as a major constituent of cultures of Nocardia spp., and LL-diaminopimelic acid as a major constituent of cultures of Streptomyces spp. In cultures of ten strains of N. madurae and of thr...

SUMMARY: 1250 Gram-positive and catalase-positive cocci were isolated from bacon, pig and human skin and dust, and their morphology, physiology and biochemical characters examined. The genera Staphylococcus, Micrococcus and Sarcina were recognized. Staphylococci were distinguished by their ability to form acid from glucose anaerobically and sarcinas by the formation of cubical packets. 570 isolates could be placed in the genus Staphylococcus, 677 in the genus Micrococcus and 3 in the genus Sarci...

A novel actinobacterium, designated strain NEAU-HG-1T, was isolated from soil collected from Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, Northeast China and characterised using a polyphasic approach. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain NEAU-HG-1T belonged to the genus Micromonospora, and shared high sequence similarities with Micromonospora auratinigra DSM 44815T (98.9%) and Micromonospora coerulea DSM 43143T (98.7%). Morphological and chemotaxonomic characteristics of the strain also sup...

An endophytic actinobacterium, strain CAP215T was isolated from the root sample of a native pine tree (Callitris preissii), Adelaide, South Australia. This strain was a Gram stain-positive, aerobic actinobacterium with well-developed substrate mycelia. It produced spiral chains of spores. The closest phylogenetic members which shared the highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity were Streptomyces marinus DSM 41968T, Streptomyces haliclonae DSM 41970T and Streptomyces karpasiensis K413T at 98.2%,...

An endophytic actinobacterium, strain PIP199T, was isolated from a root sample of a native apricot growing on the Bedford Park campus of Flinders University, Adelaide, South Australia. The result of a polyphasic study showed that this strain was identified as a new member of the genus Amycolatopsis. Strain PIP199T is an aerobic actinobacterium with well-developed substrate mycelia and aerial mycelia that form short chains of spores. Amycolatopsis keratiniphila subsp. keratiniphila DSM 44409T (99...

A non-motile, Gram-staining negative, catalase- and oxidase-positive, crescent-rod shaped bacterium, designated strain CUG 91308T, was isolated from a sediment sample of Qinghai Lake, Qinghai Province, China. Colonies on OSM agar were round, smooth, flat and pinkish-orange in colour. Strain CUG 91308T could grow at 15-37 °C, pH 6-12 and in the presence of up to 7.0 % NaCl (w/v). Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain CUG 91308T belonged to the family Cycloba...

A novel actinomycete, designated strain HC44T, was isolated from a soil sample collected from Hacibektas, Turkey, and characterized using a polyphasic approach. The strain had morphological characteristics and chemotaxonomic properties identical to those of members of the genus Streptomyces. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons revealed that HC44T clustered with members of the genus Streptomyces and the highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values were obtained w...

Sinai's important geographical and strategic position is attracting researchers to explore opportunities to maximize exploitation of its treasures, especially in the area of sustainable development. One of the fields of exploitation is extracting valuable metals from low-grade ores using green technologies. In this study, we examined the possibility of microbial leaching of uranium (U) from a rock sample collected from Wadi Naseib, Sinai, Egypt. Twenty previously isolated and tentatively identif...
