The chitosanase from Streptomyces sp. N174

More recently, the status of the genus Kitasatosporia was again under discussion. Evidence was shown that it should be again separated from Streptomyces. We are presently studying this point for the N174 strain in our lab. You can perhaps expect a new name in a few months. (???)

The area from which the strain was isolated was similar to the one on the photo! Click on the picture to see a larger more detailed version. The picture was taken at the beginning of October.
