Actinosynnema mirum DSM 43827

Names Actinosynnema mirum DSM 43827
Accession numbers NC_013093
Background Actinosynnema mirum was isolated from a blade of grass from Raritan River, NJ, USA in September 1976. A soil dwelling, nonmotile aerobe it has fine hyphae which form aerial and substrate mycelia. Motile spores are borne on synnemata, compact groups of erect hyphae. It produces nocardicin antibiotics and is able to inhibit growth of several Gram-positive bacteria as well as some filamentous fungi and yeasts. Its cell wall conatins meso-diaminopimelic acid as well as alanine, glutamic acid and glucosamine and has MK-9(H4) and MK-9(H6) as it major menaquinones (adapted from PMID 21304636). (EBI Integr8)
