Stackebrandtia endophytica sp. nov., an actinobacterium isolated from Tripterygium wilfordii.
PMID : 25736412 DOI : 10.1099/ijs.0.000166
A novel endophytic actinobacterium, designated strain YIM 64602T, was isolated from healthy stems of Tripterygium wilfordii. It grew at 15-40 �XC, pH 6.0-9.0 and in the presence of 0-3 % (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that strain YIM 64602T belongs to the genus Stackebrandtia. Whole-cell hydrolysates of strain YIM 64602T contained the amino acid meso-diaminopimelic acid with the sugars mannose, rhamnose and glucose, and a trace of ribose. The major polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylmethylethanolamine and phosphatidylethanolamine. MK-10(H6), MK-10(H4) and MK-11(H4) were the predominant components in the quinone system. The fatty-acid pattern was mainly composed of the saturated branched-chain acids iso-C16 : 0, anteiso-C17 : 0, iso-C15 : 0 and iso-C17 : 0. The DNA G+C content was 72.4 mol%. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed the highest pairwise sequence identity (96.0-98.5 %) with the members of the genus Stackebrandtia. Strain YIM 64602T displayed a DNA-DNA relatedness of 43.9��0.4 % with the type strain Stackebrandtia albiflava YIM 45751T. Based on evidence from this polyphasic study, strain YIM 64602T (= BCRC 16954T = DSM 45928T) is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Stackebrandtia, for which the name Stackebrandtia endophytica is proposed.
