Abstract

A Gram-negative, motile, non-spore-forming bacterial strain, designated HU1-GD12, was isolated from freshwater sediment. The strain was characterized by using a polyphasic approach in order to determine its taxonomic position. Comparative analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that the isolate constituted a distinct branch within the genus , showing the highest level of sequence similarity with respect to RL-3 (96.2 %). Strain HU1-GD12 had a genomic DNA G+C content of 66.8 mol% and Q-10 as the predominant respiratory quinone. Furthermore, the major polyamine component (spermidine) in the cytoplasm and the presence of sphingoglycolipids suggested that strain HU1-GD12 belonged to the family . On the basis of its phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness, strain HU1-GD12 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is HU1-GD12 (=LMG 24321=KCTC 22289).
