Actinoallomurus acanthiterrae sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from rhizosphere soil of the mangrove plant Acanthus ilicifolius A novel actinobacterium strain, 2614A723 T , was isolated from rhizosphere soil of mangrove plant Acanthus ilicifolius collected at Touyuan, Wenchang, Hainan province, China. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain 2614A723 T formed a distinct phyletic line in the genus Actinoallomurus, the 16S rRNA gene tree sharing
... of 98.35 %, 98.07 % and 97.86 % with Actinoallomurus spadix NBRC 14099 T , Actinoallomurus purpureus TTN02-30 T and Actinoallomurus luridus TT02-15 T , respectively. Strain 2614A723 T contained lysine and meso-diaminopimelic acid in the cell wall peptidoglycan and madurose, galactose and xylose in the whole-cell sugars. The predominant menaquinones were MK-9(H 4 ) and MK-9(H 6 ). The major polar phospholipids were phosphatidylglycerol and diphosphatidylglycerol. The predominant fatty acids were iso-C 16 : 0 and anteiso-C 17 : 0 . These chemotaxonomic data confirmed the affiliation of strain 2614A723 T to the genus Actinoallomurus. It is apparent from the combined phenotypic data, biochemical tests and DNA-DNA hybridization values that strain 2614A723 T should be classified in the genus Actinoallomurus as a representative of a novel species. The name Actinoallomurus acanthiterrae sp. nov. is proposed with strain 2614A723 T (5CCTCC AA 2012001 T 5DSM 45727 T ) as the type strain. The GenBank/EMBL/DDBJ accession number for the 16S rRNA gene sequence of 2614A723 T is JQ085862.
