Catenulispora acidiphila DSM 44928

Names Catenulispora acidiphila DSM 44928
Accession numbers NC_013131
Background Catenulispora acidiphila (strain DSM 44928 / NRRL B-24433 / NBRC 102108 / JCM 14897) is an aerobic, free-living, nonmotile, acidophilic Gram-positive bacterium, originally isolated from forest soil in Gerenzano, Italy. Optimum temperature for growth is 22-28 degrees Celsius and the pH for growth ranges from 4.3 to 6.8 with an optimum pH level 6.0 but scant growth is reported up to pH 7.5. C. acidiphilia grows in long filaments of relatively short aerial hyphae which septate in chains of cylindrical arthrospores when sporulation is induced. It is resistant to lysozyme (at least 100ug/ml) which is not reported for any of the strains of the genus Catenulispora. C. acidiphilia is able to hydrolyze starch and casein, liquefy gelatin, and to utilize D-galactose, D-fructose, arabinose, xylose and gluconate but not glycerol, L-arabinose, D-mannitol, methyl-beta-D-xylopyranoside, methyl-alpaha-D-glucopyranoside, cellulose or sucrose (Adapted from PMID 21304647).
