Abstract

A bacterial strain, designated KMM 6177, was isolated from the sea urchin and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic investigation. The bacterium was found to be heterotrophic, aerobic, non-motile by gliding and orange-pigmented. Comparative phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing placed the marine isolate in the genus , a member of the family , with 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of 94.9–98.6 % with recognized species. Strain KMM 6177 grew at 4–39 °C and with 1–8 % NaCl. It produced alkaline phosphatase, catalase and oxidase and hydrolysed aesculin, gelatin, DNA and Tween 20. The predominant fatty acids were iso-C, iso-C, iso-C 3-OH, iso-C 3-OH and a summed feature (comprising iso-C 2-OH and/or C 7). The DNA G+C content was 34.4 mol%. A combination of phylogenetic, genotypic and phenotypic data clearly indicated that strain KMM 6177 represents a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is KMM 6177 (=KCTC 22015=LMG 25220).
