  • flavonoid like compounds from seeds of red alder alnus rubra influence host nodulation by frankia Actinomycetales
    Physiologia Plantarum, 1997
    Co-Authors: Larry F Benoit, Alison M Berry

    Abstract:

    Nitrogen-fixing root nodules are formed by Frankia spp. (Actinomycetales) on dicotyledonous hosts such as alders (Alnus spp.). Flavonoid-containing preparations from seed washes of red alder (Alnus rubra Bong.), and individual compounds isolated from such preparations, influenced nodulation of A. rubra by Frankia. Nodulation was enhanced by one flavonoid-like compound, and apparently inhibited by two other such compounds. Four flavonoid-like compounds had no significant effect on nodulation. The seven individual compounds purified from the seed washes were characterized spectrally as possible flavanones and isoflavones. Both the enhancer and the inhibitors appeared to be possible flavanones.

  • Update on the classification of higher ranks in the phylum Actinobacteria.
    International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology, 2020
    Co-Authors: Nimaichand Salam, Jian-yu Jiao, Xiao-tong Zhang, Wen-jun Li

    Abstract:

    Genome analysis is one of the main criteria for description of new taxa. Availability of genome sequences for all the actinobacteria with a valid nomenclature will, however, require another decade’s works of sequencing. This paper describes the rearrangement of the higher taxonomic ranks of the members of the phylum ‘ Actinobacteria ’, using the phylogeny of 16S rRNA gene sequences and supported by the phylogeny of the available genome sequences. Based on the refined phylogeny of the 16S rRNA gene sequences, we could arrange all the members of the 425 genera of the phylum ‘ Actinobacteria ’ with validly published names currently in use into six classes, 46 orders and 79 families, including 16 new orders and 10 new families. The order Micrococcales Prevot 1940 (Approved Lists 1980) emend. Nouioui et al. 2018 is now split into 11 monophyletic orders: the emended order Micrococcales and ten proposed new orders Aquipuribacterales , Beutenbergiales , Bogoriellales , Brevibacteriales , Cellulomonadales , Demequinales , Dermabacterales , Dermatophilales , Microbacteriales and Ruaniales . Further, the class ‘ Actinobacteria ’ Stackebrandt et al. 1997 emend. Nouioui et al. 2018 was described without any nomenclature type, and therefore the name ‘ Actinobacteria ’ is deemed illegitimate. In accordance to Rule 8 of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes, Parker et al. 2019, we proposed the name Actinomycetia which is formed by using the stem of the name Actinomycetales Buchanan 1917 (Approved Lists 1980) emend. Zhi et al. 2009, to replace the name ‘ Actinobacteria ’. The nomenclature type of the proposed new class Actinomycetia is the order Actinomycetales Buchanan 1917 (Approved Lists 1980) emend. Zhi et al. 2009.

  • abundant and diverse endophytic actinobacteria associated with medicinal plant maytenus austroyunnanensis in xishuangbanna tropical rainforest revealed by culture dependent and culture independent methods
    Environmental Microbiology Reports, 2012
    Co-Authors: Huahong Chen, Wen-jun Li, Guozhen Zhao, Jie Li, Lihua Xu, Jihong Jiang

    Abstract:

    Endophytes are now considered as an important component of biodiversity. However, the diversity of endophytic actinobacteria associated with tropical rainforest native medicinal plants is essentially unknown. In this study, the diversity of endophytic actinobacteria residing in root, stem and leaf tissues of medicinal plant Maytenus austroyunnanensis collected from tropical rainforest in Xishuangbanna, China was investigated with a combination of cultivation and culture-independent analysis on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequencing. By using different selective isolation media and methods, a total of 312 actinobacteria were obtained, and they were affiliated with the order Actinomycetales (distributed into 21 genera). Based on a protocol for endophytes enrichment, three 16S rRNA gene clone libraries were constructed and 84 distinct operational taxonomic units were identified and they distributed among the orders Actinomycetales and Acidimicrobiales, including eight suborders and at least 38 genera with a number of rare actinobacteria genera. Phylogenetic analysis showed that 32% of the clones in the libraries had lower than 97% similarities with related type strains. Interestingly, six genera from the order Actinomycetales and uncultured clones from Acidimicrobiales have not, to our knowledge, been previously reported as endophytes. Our study confirms abundant endophytic actinobacterial consortium in tropical rainforest native plant and suggests that this special habitat represents an underexplored reservoir of diverse and novel actinobacteria of potential interest for bioactive compounds discovery.
