Abstract

A novel actinobacterium, strain P30, was isolated from jeotgal, a traditional Korean fermented seafood. Cells were aerobic, Gram-positive, non-motile and coccoid. Optimal growth occurred at 30–37 °C, at pH 8–9 and in the presence of 0–2 % (w/v) NaCl. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain P30 was phylogenetically closely related to , , , , and with levels of similarity of 98.6, 98.2, 98.1, 97.4, 97.3 and 97.3 %, respectively, to the type strains of these species. Levels of DNA–DNA relatedness between strain P30 and the type strains of , , , and were 37, 43, 37, 25 and 17 %, respectively. The predominant menaquinone of strain P30 was MK-7. Major cellular fatty acids were anteiso-C, iso-C and iso-C. The genomic DNA G+C content of strain P30 was 70.2 mol%. Based on these data, strain P30 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is P30 (=KCTC 19594=JCM 15914).
