Phylogenetic study of the species within the family Streptomycetaceae. Antonie van Leeuwenhoek.
BLAST result of the nearly complete 16S rRNA gene sequences (averaging 1,529 nucleotides) of the strain BTSS 1001 against sequences in the GenBank database revealed homologies of 99% to members of the family Streptomycetaceae. The BLAST result gave similarity matches to Streptomyces rochei (99.00%), Streptomyces plicatus (99.00%), Streptomyces olivaceus (99.00%), and Streptomyces enissocaesilis (99.00%).
The cultural characteristics of pigmentation, colony morphology, and spore morphology placed the strain in the family Streptomycetaceae. The cell wall sugars, menaquinones, and fatty acid profile placed the organism under genus Streptomyces.
