Abstract

A dark-green-pigmented marine bacterium, previously designated D2, which produces components that are inhibitory to common marine fouling organisms has been characterized and assessed for taxonomic assignment. Based on direct double-stranded sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene, D2 was found to show the highest similarity (93%) to members of the genus . The G+C content of D2 is 42 mol%, and it is a facultatively anaerobic rod and oxidase-positive. D2 is motile by a sheathed polar flagellum, exhibited non-fermentative metabolism and required sodium ions for growth. The strain was not capable of using citrate, fructose, sucrose, sorbitol and glycerol but it utilizes mannose and maltose and hydrolyses gelatin. The molecular evidence, together with phenotypic characteristics, showed that this bacterium which produces an antifouling agent constitutes a new species of the genus . The name is proposed for this bacterium, and the type strain is D2 (= CCUG 26757).
