Abstract

A Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated strain R2A-16, was isolated from sediment of Rupa Lake in Nepal and analysed using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain R2A-16 is affiliated to the genus of the family ; 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain R2A-16 and CCUG 46293 was 98.07 %. The isolate contained iso-C (35.6 %) as the major fatty acid and menaquinone MK-6 as the predominant respiratory quinone. The GC content of the genomic DNA was 33.3 mol%. On the basis of its phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness, strain R2A-16 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is R2A-16 (=CGMCC 1.7656 =NBRC 104931).
