Kribbella flavida DSM 17836

Names Kribbella flavida DSM 17836
Accession numbers NC_013729
Background Kribbella flavida (strainDSM 17836 / JCM 10339 / NBRC 14399) is a strictly aerobic Gram-positive bacterium isolated from soil in China. It possesses a vegetative aerial mycelium which consists of hyphae extensively branched that fragment into short to elongated rod-like elements. The colonies are pasty and have lichenous shapes with irregular edges. K.flavida utilizes glucose, cellobiose, maltose, melibiose as a sole carbon and energy sources, but is not able to hydrolyze starch. Growth occurs at pH 5 and 9 and at 20 and 37 degrees Celsius. It activity is weak at 40 degrees Celsius and growth does not occur at 45 degrees Celsius. (Adapted from PMID: 10319498). (EBI Integr8)
