Abstract

Thermosensitive submerged endospores formed byStreptomyces globisporus 0234 and its natural variant A resembled those of thermoresistant actinomycetes not only in their morphology and ultrastructure, but also in the content of dipicolinic acid. The production of endospores containing this substance is unusual inStreptomyces while other features of the strain indicate relatedness to other streptomycetes. Chemotaxonomic analysis of variant A revealed the cell wall to be of chemotype I and fatty acid content typical ofStreptomyces. Most characteristics of surface cultures of variant A coincided with those of the original strain 0234 and its endosporeless variant B. Both the strain 0234 and its variants A and B produced identical antibiotics and pesticidal compounds.
