Abstract

Two isolates from rhizosphere soil of cotton, designated Gh-67 and Gh-48, which produced large amounts of extracellular polysaccharide and possessed plant-growth-promoting traits, were characterized phenotypically and genotypically. The strains were Gram-negative and cells were non-motile rods that grew optimally at 28 °C and grew between pH 4 and 7. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis of strains Gh-67 and Gh-48 placed them in the genus , with pairwise sequence similarity between them and type strains from related genera ranging from 93.9 to 98.2 %. The major fatty acids were iso-C, C and summed feature 3 (C 7c and/or iso-C 2-OH). The strains contained MK-7 as the major isoprenoid quinone. The DNA G+C contents of strains Gh-67 and Gh-48 were 46.7 and 44.2 mol%, respectively. The low DNA–DNA hybridization value (18 %) and a number of phenotypic differences between strains Gh-48 and Gh-67 indicated that they represent two separate species. Results of phenotypic, phylogenetic and genotypic analysis revealed that the strains were separated from the species of described to date. Therefore, strains Gh-67 and Gh-48 represent novel species of , for which we propose the names sp. nov. (type strain Gh-67 =NCIMB 14470 =KCTC 22380) and sp. nov. (type strain Gh-48 =NCIMB 14471 =KCTC 22379).
