Abstract

A yellow-pigmented bacterial isolate (strain JM-791) obtained from the healthy internal stem tissue of 1-month-old corn (, cultivar ‘Sweet Belle’) grown at the Plant Breeding Unit of the E.V. Smith Research Center in Tallassee (Elmore county), Alabama, USA, was taxonomically characterized. The study employing a polyphasic approach, including 16S RNA gene sequence analysis, physiological characterization, estimation of the ubiquinone and polar lipid patterns, and fatty acid composition, revealed that strain JM-791 shared 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities with type strains of (98.3 %), (97.5 %) and (97.4 %), but also showed pronounced differences, both genotypically and phenotypically. On the basis of these results, a novel species of the genus is described, for which we propose the name sp. nov. with the type strain JM-791 ( = LMG 28739 = CCM 8596).
