Abstract

An aerobic, gliding, yellow-pigmented bacterium lacking flagella and showing strong tyrosinase activity, designated strain EM41, was isolated from seawater on the eastern coast of Jeju Island in Korea. Growth was observed at 15–35 °C (optimum, 25–30 °C) and at pH 6.5–9.0 (optimum, pH 7.0–8.5). Cells were Gram-negative, negative for flexirubin pigments and catalase- and oxidase-positive. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 33.5 mol% and the major respiratory quinone was menaquinone-6 (MK-6). Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain EM41 formed a distinct phyletic line within the genus with a 100 % bootstrap value and was most closely related to KMM 3664 (97.0 % sequence similarity). The level of DNA–DNA relatedness between strain EM41 and KMM 3664 was about 17.8 %. On the basis of phenotypic and genotypic data, strain EM41 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is EM41 (=KCTC 22297=DSM 21164).
