Abstract

A bacterial strain designated GFC-1 was isolated from a fish-culture pond in Taiwan and was characterized by using the polyphasic taxonomic approach. Strain GFC-1 was Gram-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped, motile and non-spore-forming. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the strain belonged to the genus of the family and its closest neighbour was JS11-7 (97.0 % sequence similarity). The results of physiological and biochemical tests allowed clear phenotypic differentiation of isolate GFC-1 from JS11-7. The major fatty acids were summed feature 3 (C 7 and/or iso-C 2-OH), C and C 7. The DNA G+C content was 63.0 mol%. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and chemotaxonomic and physiological data, strain GFC-1 should be classified as representing a novel species and a second member of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is GFC-1 (=BCRC 17832=LMG 24502).
