Abstract [en]

Actinobacteriaof the acI lineage are often thenumerically dominant bacterial phylum in surfacefreshwaters, where they can account for>50% oftotal bacteria. Despite their abundance, there are nodescribed isolates. In an effort to obtain enrichmentof these ubiquitous freshwaterActinobacteria, dilutedfreshwater samples from Lake Grosse Fuchskuhle,Germany, were incubated in 96-well culture plates.With this method, a successful enrichment containinghigh abundances of a member of the lineage acI wasestablished. Phylogenetic classification showed thatthe acIActinobacteriaof the enrichment belonged tothe acI-B2 tribe, which seems to prefer acidic lakes.This enrichment grows to low cell densities and thusthe oligotrophic nature of acI-B2 was confirmed.
