Abstract

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, deep yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated strain CS5-B1, was isolated from a soil sample collected from a cliff on Mara Island, south-west of Jeju, Republic of Korea. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain CS5-B1 fell within the radiation of the genus with the closest relative being IFO 16041 (97.2 % sequence similarity). Levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain CS5-B1 and other species of the genus were 92.9–95.8 %. The dominant menaquinone was MK-7. The polar lipids contained phosphatidylethanolamine, a ninhydrin-positive lipid and an unknown lipid. The major fatty acids were iso-C, C 5, C and C, with iso-C 3-OH and iso-C 3-OH as the dominant hydroxy fatty acids. The G+C content of the DNA was 48.7 mol%. DNA-DNA relatedness between strain CS5-B1 and DSM 13484 was 5.8–7.9 %. On the basis of the phenotypic and DNA–DNA hybridization data, this bacterium represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CS5-B1 (=KCTC 22170=DSM 21039).
