Remarks: A study was carried out to clarify the taxonomy of four Gram-positive, heterotrophic mesophiles isolated from marine lakes in the Republic of Palau. The strains, designated YM3-251(T), YM3-653, YM3-671 and YM11-542(T), formed aerial and substrate mycelia. The cell-wall peptidoglycan contained meso-diaminopimelic acid, glutamic acid and alanine. The G+C content of their genomic DNA was approximately 45 mol%. The major fatty acid was iso-C(15 : 0) and the major isoprenoid quinone was MK-9. The strains formed a distinct group in the 16S rRNA gene tree and shared a range of phenotypic properties that distinguished them from members of related genera in Thermoactinomycetaceae fam. nov. The name proposed to accommodate the new isolates is Mechercharimyces gen. nov., comprising two species based on genotypic and phenotypic criteria, including comparative gyrB and DNA-DNA relatedness data. The names proposed for these taxa are Mechercharimyces mesophilus sp. nov., the type species, and Mechercharimyces asporophorigenens sp. nov., with the type strains YM3-251(T) (=MBIC06230(T)=DSM 44894(T)) and YM11-542(T) (=MBIC06487(T)=DSM 44955(T)), respectively.

The Culture Collections hold cell cultures, bacteria, fungi and virus strains from worldwide sources. Our scientists ensure that the identification of the cultures is correct and they remain unchanged from when they are first deposited with the Collection. Nevertheless, some of the data we provide about the cultures is supplied by the person depositing the strains and, although we have multiple checking procedures in place, we cannot always verify all their data. Please note that the Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data provided by the depositors.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are to be used as controls for microbiology testing and for research purposes only. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.

Contact us if you want to discuss commercial use of the cultures.
