Query: NC_009380:336024 Salinispora tropica CNB-440 chromosome, complete genome Lineage: Salinispora tropica; Salinispora; Micromonosporaceae; Actinomycetales; Actinobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This strain was isolated from coarse beach sand off the Bahamas. An obligate marine actinomycete. Salinispora strains are commonly isolated from tropical marine sediment. Members of this genus produce branched hyphae and require media which contain seawater or sodium. A survey of the cultured species identified over 90 isolates which produce compounds that inhibited cancer cells. These organisms may be a new source of bioactive chemicals for use in disease and cancer treatments. This species produces the chemicals salinosporamide A and B which may be useful for cancer treatment.

General Information: Isolation: Water sample from a hot spring runoffs; Country: Portugal; Temp: Thermophile; Temp: 50C; Habitat: Fresh water, Hot spring. Truepera radiovictrix is a radiation-resistant species was isolated from hot spring runoff on the Island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. The hot springs in this area discharge neutral to slightly alkaline water that may reach the boiling point. These strains form orange/red colonies, spherical-shaped cells, have an optimum growth temperature of about 50 degrees C, an optimum pH for growth between about 7.5 and 9.5, and do not grow at pH below 6.5 or above pH 11.2.
