Phylogeny and Physiology of Actinomycetes and Biogeochemical Parameters in Sediments of Eastern Mediterranean Sea

Ilknur Tuncer and Nihayet Bizsel
Abstract—In spite of high morphological and phylogenetic diversity, biotechnological and economic importance of actinomycetes, there is a limited number of studies in sediments of Eastern Mediterranean Sea, especially in relation with environmental parameters. The actinomycetes were isolated from deep-basins of Eastern Mediterranean Sea (72–1235 m depths) with regional variability. They were tested physiologically using commercial kits and found that they utilized proteins rather than carbohydrates. According to 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, highly diverse Streptomycetes strains with two of them representing new taxa and also the genera Nocardiopsis and Pseudonocardia were obtained. Geochemical parameters of the sediments together with enzymatic activity result

Index Terms—Actinobacteria, 16S rRNA genes, sediments, Eastern Mediterranean Sea.
