Abstract

A Gram-negative, yellowish bacterial strain, designated Gsoil 1519, was isolated from soil of a ginseng field in Pocheon province (South Korea) and characterized using a polyphasic approach to determine its taxonomic position. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain Gsoil 1519 belongs to the family ‘’ and is related to KCTC 12531 (91.8 % similarity) and LMG 10896 (91.5 % similarity). Phylogenetic distances from any other recognized species within the family ‘’ were greater than 14.7 %. The G+C content of the genomic DNA of strain Gsoil 1519 was 50.1 %. The detection of MK-7 as the predominant menaquinone and a fatty acid profile with C 5, summed feature 4 (C 7 and/or iso-C 2-OH), iso-C and C as the major acids supported the affiliation of strain Gsoil 1519 to the genus . On the basis of its phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness, strain Gsoil 1519 should be classified in the genus as a representative of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Gsoil 1519 (=KCTC 22263=DSM 21099).
