Abstract

A yellow-pigmented bacterial strain, designated RCML-52, was isolated from an abandoned gold mine in the desert in Xinjiang, China. Strain RCML-52 was Gram-negative, aerobic and non-motile. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain RCML-52 was affiliated with the genus . Strain RCML-52 exhibited <95.6 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to the type strains of all species of the genus . The major fatty acids were iso-C (27.6 %), iso-C (19.1 %), iso-C 9 (16.4 %), iso-C 3-OH (6.5 %) and iso-C (5.3 %). The DNA G+C content was 69.7 mol%. The major isoprenoid quinone was Q-8. On the basis of phylogenetic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic analysis, strain RCML-52 should be assigned to a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RCML-52 (=CCTCC AB 208194 =KCTC 22558).
