Abstract

A motile, rod-shaped, yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated strain CW1, was isolated from a water-cooling system in the Republic of Korea. Cells were Gram-stain-positive, aerobic, catalase-positive and oxidase-negative. Strain CW1 formed slender rods with unusual bulbous protuberances. The major fatty acids were iso-C (33.7 %), anteiso-C (27.2 %), iso-C (13.3 %) and C (10.8 %). The cell-wall peptidoglycan was of type B2, containing lysine as the diamino acid. The respiratory quinones were menaquinones with 12, 13 and 14 isoprene units. A phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain CW1 formed an evolutionary lineage within the radiation enclosing members of the family and was related to, but distant from, members of the genera and . On the basis of the evidence presented, strain CW1 is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus in the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is CW1 (=KCTC 13142 =JCM 14730).
