Abstract

A novel bacterium, designated TRM 415, belonging to the genus , was isolated from a sediment sample from a salt lake in Xinjiang province, China. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that strain TRM 415 was phylogenetically most closely related to YIM 90718 (98.4 % sequence similarity) and had low similarity (<95.5 %) to other species of the genus ; however, DNA–DNA hybridization studies between strain TRM 415 and YIM 90718 showed only 41.3 % relatedness. Strain TRM 415 possessed -diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic cell-wall diamino acid, MK-8(H) as the major menaquinone and polar lipids including phosphatidylglycerol and diphosphatidylglycerol. The major fatty acids were anteiso-C and anteiso-C. The genomic DNA G+C content was 69 mol%. Based on the evidence from this polyphasic study, strain TRM 415 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is TRM 415 (=JCM 15900 =CCTCC AB 208328 =KCTC 19616).
