Abstract

The taxonomic position of bacterial strain 141, isolated from the mangrove rhizosphere, has been clarified by phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic studies. The strain possesses wall chemotype IV, MK-9(H) as the predominant menaquinone, relatively long-chain mycolic acids (56-64 carbon atoms) and straight-chain saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids with a small amount of tuberculostearic acid. The G+C content of the DNA is 66.8 mol%. Similarity values for genes encoding 16S rRNA indicated that strain 141represents a new species within the genus Gordonia for which the name Gordonia rhizosphera sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of G. rhizosphera is 141(= IFO 16068).
