Actinoplanes liguriensis sp. nov. and Actinoplanes teichomyceticus sp. nov

Int J Syst Evol Microbiol. 2006 Sep;56(Pt 9):2125-2130. doi: 10.1099/ijs.0.64240-0.


The taxonomic status of 'Actinoplanes liguriae' A/6353 and 'Actinoplanes teichomyceticus' AB8327 was established by using a polyphasic approach. Strains A/6353 and AB8327 form distinct phylogenetic lineages in the 16S rRNA gene tree of members of the genus Actinoplanes and are related moderately and closely to Actinoplanes rectilineatus and Actinoplanes cyaneus, respectively. Morphological, cultural and physiological properties indicated that strains A/6353 and AB8327 represent separate, novel species of the genus Actinoplanes, Actinoplanes liguriensis sp. nov. (type strain A/6353(T)=FH 2244(T)=DSM 43865(T)=ATCC 31048(T)=BCRC 12121(T)=CBS 355.75(T)=IMSNU 22127(T)=JCM 3250(T)=KCTC 9536(T)=KCC A-0250(T)=NBRC 13997(T)=NCIMB 12636(T)=NRRL B-16723(T)=SANK 62178(T)) and Actinoplanes teichomyceticus sp. nov. (type strain AB8327(T)=FH 2149(T)=DSM 43866(T)=ATCC 31121(T)=BCRC 12106(T)=FERM P-3462(T)=IMSNU 20043(T)=IMET 9254(T)=JCM 3252(T)=KCC A-0252(T)=KCTC 9543(T)=NBRC 13999(T)=NCIMB 12640(T)=NRRL B-16726(T)=SANK 60479(T)).
