Formatted abstract An actinomycete, strain B60T, was isolated from a soil sample in Napier, Western Cape province of South Africa. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and chemotaxonomy, strain B60T was identified as a member of the genus Actinomadura. Strain B60T produced an antibiotic with activity against Escherichia coli, Enterococcus faecium and Mycobacterium aurum, but not against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Significant differences in morphological and physiological characteristics indicate that strain B60T represents a novel species of the genus Actinomadura. The name Actinomadura napierensis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is B60T (=DSM 44846T=NRRL B-24319T).
