Abstract

A Gram-variable, motile and rod-shaped bacterial strain, ASL-1, was isolated from a marine saltern located on the coast of the Yellow Sea, Korea. A neighbour-joining phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain ASL-1 clustered with YKJ-13 and that this cluster joined the clade comprising the type strains of two species. Strain ASL-1 exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of 97.3 % to . YKJ-13 and 96.5 % to the type strains of and . The chemotaxonomic properties of strain ASL-1 were similar to those of one or two of the genera and The peptidoglycan type was A1 linked directly through -lysine as the diamino acid. Strain ASL-1 contained MK-7 as the predominant menaquinone with the presence of a significant amount of MK-8. The predominant fatty acid was anteiso-C. The DNA G+C content was 42.9 mol%. Differential phenotypic properties, together with the phylogenetic and genetic distinctiveness, revealed that strain ASL-1 could be differentiated from . and the two species. On the basis of the data presented, strain ASL-1 represents a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is ASL-1 (=KCTC 13257=CCUG 56751). It is also proposed that and be reclassified as comb. nov. (type strain 581=DSM 1297=ATCC 29841=CCUG 28884=CIP 103308=LMG 6930) and comb. nov. (type strain SF-57=KCCM 41644=JCM 11810), respectively.
