Abstract

A Gram-negative, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterial strain, JLT354-W, that accumulates poly--hydroxybutyrate granules was isolated from the South China Sea. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the strain was related to members of the genera , , and ; levels of similarity between strain JLT354-W and members of the above genera were less than 92.0 %. The predominant fatty acid of strain JLT354-W was C 7 (83.1 %); significant amounts of C (7.9 %) and C 3-OH (3.7 %) were also present. The predominant respiratory ubiquinone was Q-10. The DNA G+C content of strain JLT354-W was 63.7 mol%. The isolate was distinguishable from members of the order based on phenotypic and biochemical characteristics. On the basis of the taxonomic data presented, strain JLT354-W is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is JLT354-W (=LMG 24665=CGMCC 1.7290).
