Abstract
Re-evaluation of the taxonomic position of strain K-252(T), which produces the compound K-252a, showed that the strain does not belong to the genus No cardiopsis suggested previously. Strain K-252(T) formed aerial mycelia with long spore chains, and hyphal fragmentation was not observed. The cell wal l chemotype of the strain was III/B, the major menaquinone was MK-9 (III, V III-H-4), the phospholipid pattern was PIV and the major cellular fatty aci ds were 10Me-C-17:0, iso-C-16:0 and C-16:0. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16 S rRNA sequence showed that strain K-252(T) was clustered in the Nonomuraea group. Furthermore, on the basis of DNA-DNA reassociation and phenotypic d ata, strain K-252(T) (= NRRL 15532(T)) was classified as a new species of t he genus Nonomuraea. This strain is proposed as Nonomuraea longicatena sp. nov.
