Description: Streptomyces mashuensis - Gram-positive, aerobic, filamentous septate, rod prokaryote (bacterium). Streptomyces species belong to the Actinomycetes group and are bacteria that share many characteristics with the fungi. They grow usually as filaments (chains of cells with septae) and often branch to form a network of filaments (mycelium) in the soil. At the tips of filaments spore chains of indefinite length develop (not seen in this image). These soil bacteria are responsible for the musty odor of soil. Streptomyces mashuensis (originally classified as Streptoverticillium mashuense is typically associated with the production of the antibacterial metabolites, streptomycin and monazomycin.
