Abstract

A yellow-pigmented, Gram-staining-negative, aerobic, non-motile, moderately thermophilic, rod-shaped bacterium, CC-MHSW-2, was isolated from a coastal hot spring of Green Island (Lutao), located off Taituang, Taiwan. The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis demonstrated that it shared <93.2 % sequence similarity with species. The organism was unable to produce acid from carbohydrates, but it could utilize a number of organic acids and amino acids. Menaquinone 6 (MK-6) was the major respiratory quinone and iso-C, iso-C 3-OH and summed feature 3 (comprising C 7 and/or C 6) were the predominant fatty acids. This fatty acid profile distinguished the isolate from members of the genera , , , and . The DNA G+C content of strain CC-MHSW-2 was 39.7±1 mol%. On the basis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and the chemotaxonomic and physiological data, strain CC-MHSW-2 represents a novel genus and species in the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CC-MHSW-2 (=KCTC 22538 =JCM 15069).
