Abstract

Phylogenetically, and occupy independent positions in the flavobacter-bacteroides phylum. Both of these organisms are gram-negative rods that are motile by gliding, chemoor-ganotrophic, and aerobic, degrade several kinds of biomacromolecules, and inhabit marine environments. Their major isoprenoid quinone is menaquinone 7. The G+C content of the DNA of is 35 to 37 mol%, and the G+C content of the DNA of is 40 to 42 mol%. In addition to constituting an independent phylogenetic lineage, each species has a distinctive cellular polyamine constitution. is characterized by possessing cadaverine as its major polyamine, and is characterized by possessing spermidine, in contrast to most species of the genera and and related organisms, which possess homospermidine. Transfer of to the genus gen. nov. as comb. nov. and transfer of to the genus gen. nov. as comb. nov. are proposed.
