Abstract

Four strains isolated from cultured Manila clam, , in the north-western coast of Spain were characterized phenotypically and genotypically. Phylogenetic analyses based on the 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that these bacteria were closely related to , and with sequence similarities between 98.1 and 96.0 %. Phylogenetic analysis based on the RNA polymerase alpha chain (), RecA protein (), the -subunit of bacterial ATP synthase () and the uridine monophosphate (UMP) kinase () genes and fluorescent amplified fragment length polymorphism experiments clearly showed that these novel isolates form a tight genomic group different from any currently known species. On the basis of phylogenetic analysis and phenotypic data, the four strains represent a novel taxon, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. Several phenotypic features were revealed that discriminate from other species. The type strain is CMJ 11.1 (=CECT 7228=LMG 23869).
