Query: NC_016114:648422 Streptomyces flavogriseus ATCC 33331 chromosome, complete genome 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.

General Information: This organism was isolated from a 2-3 million-year permafrost core in Siberia, Russia and can survive and grow rapidly at low temperatures. Analysis of long-term survival of psychrophilic organisms such as this one may aid understanding of the potential growth of organisms in astrobiology. Exiguobacterium sibiricum is a psychrotolerant organism able to grow at temperatures that range from -6 to 40 degrees C. This organism is also able to survive repeated freeze/thaw cycles which may contribute to its ability to survive in cold environments.
