Abstract

A moderately halophilic, motile, Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium, strain LC6, was isolated from a water sample of lake Laguna Colorada in the Bolivian Andes. The major cellular fatty acids were C 7, iso-C 7 2-OH, C and C 3-OH. The respiratory ubiquinones found in strain LC6 were Q-9 (97 %) and Q-8 (3 %). Strain LC6 was aerobic, heterotrophic, and able to utilize various carbohydrates and other substrates as carbon source. The G+C content of the genomic DNA of strain LC6 was 52.5 mol%. The organism was able to grow at pH 6.0–11.0 (optimum, pH 7.0–8.0), at 4–45 °C (optimum, 30–35 °C) and in the presence of 0.5–20 % (w/v) NaCl (optimum, 1–3 %, w/v). Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain LC6 was most closely related to DSM 15725 and DSM 4743 (98.8 % similarity), followed by DSM 30161, DSM 15723 and DSM 5425 (98.4 %). However, levels of DNA–DNA relatedness between strain LC6 and the above type strains were low (<31 %). Strain LC6 resembled recognized species with respect to various physiological, biochemical and nutritional characteristics. Combined phenotypic data and DNA–DNA hybridization data supported the conclusion that strain LC6 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name is proposed. The type strain is LC6 (=CCUG 54844=LMG 24243=DSM 19434).
