Host Lineage: Streptomyces pratensis; Streptomyces; Streptomycetaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria
General Information: Environment: Soil; Isolation: Soil; Temp: Mesophile. The genus Streptomyces consists of soil and water Gram positive filamentous bacteria well known for their ability to produce complex secondary metabolites including many antibiotics. Additionally they undergo complex multicellular development, with spores germinating to form a branched, multinucleoid substrate mycelium, which then produces an aerial mycelium which septates into uninucleoid spores. Streptomyces flavogriseus is an aerobic, Gram-positive bacterium isolated from soil. This organism produces cellulases and xyanases that are able to degrade cellulose and xylan.
