Streptomyces and Pseudonocardia strains identified in this study. The Pseudonocardia and Streptomyces strains isolated in this study are listed with the Acromyrmex octospinosus colony they were isolated from (1,2 or 3), the accession numbers for their 16 S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequences, the top National Center for Biotechnology Information Blast hits for each of their 16 S rDNA sequences and the percentage identity to these BLAST hits. Also noted are the results from polymerase chain reaction testing for the candicidin biosynthetic genes fscM and fscP using primers from a previous study [12] and the nystatin-like Pseudonocardia polyene biosynthetic gene nppDIII using the primer set RFS84 (CAGATCCGCTTCTACCAGG) and RFS85 (CGCACCGAGTGCATCTG).
