Abstract

An aerobic, Gram-reaction-positive, non-motile, psychrophilic bacterium, designated strain S6-3, was isolated from alpine soil. Cells exhibited a rod–coccus growth cycle and produced a yellow pigment. Growth occurred at 1–25 °C. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain S6-3 was related to members of the genus , sharing highest sequence similarities with the type strains of (97.9 %) and (97.6 %). Strain S6-3 had MK-9(H) as the major menaquinone and anteiso-C as the major fatty acid. The cell-wall peptidoglycan was of type A3 -Lys–-Thr–Ala. The predominant cell-wall sugars were galactose and rhamnose. The genomic DNA G+C content of strain S6-3 was 61.9 mol%. On the basis of phenotypic characteristics, phylogenetic analysis and DNA–DNA relatedness data, strain S6-3 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is S6-3 (=DSM 22274 =CGMCC 1.8950).
