Abstract

A Gram-negative, non-motile, short-rod-shaped bacterial strain (JLT1210) that accumulates poly--hydroxybutyrate granules was isolated from the Beibu Gulf in the South China Sea. Cells have polar or subpolar flagella. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the strain belongs to the genus in the order , class . The closest neighbours were SS011B1-20 (96.5 % similarity) and HTCC2597 (96.4 %). The predominant respiratory ubiquinone of strain JLT1210 was Q-10 and the DNA GC content was 72.8 mol%. Evidence from genotypic, chemotaxonomic and phenotypic data shows that strain JLT1210 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is JLT1210 (=LMG 24663=CGMCC 1.7292).
