Abstract

A Gram-staining-negative, strictly aerobic bacterium, designated strain SD10, was isolated from a tidal flat of the Yellow Sea, South Korea. Cells were non-spore-forming rods that showed catalase- and oxidase-positive reactions. Growth of strain SD10 was observed at 15–40 °C (optimum, 25–30 °C), at pH 6.0–9.0 (optimum, pH 6.5–8.5) and in the presence of 1–10 % (w/v) NaCl. Strain SD10 contained ubiquinone-10 (Q-10) as a major isoprenoid quinone and Cω7 (39.3 %), C (20.2 %), C (8.9 %) and Cω6 (8.1 %) as major fatty acids. The cellular polar lipids were identified as phosphatidylglycerol, monoglycosyldiglyceride, glucuronopyranosyldiglyceride and two unidentified glycolipids. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 55.2 mol%. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities, the strain was most closely related to Iso4 and P38, with similarities of 97.8 and 97.0 %, respectively. The DNA–DNA relatedness between strain SD10 and Iso4 was 12.0±3.2 %. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that P38 and Iso4 formed a monophyletic cluster and that their 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity was 98.1 %. DNA–DNA hybridization between Iso4 and LMG 24711 was 22.9±2.7 %, indicating that the two strains belong to separate species. On the basis of chemotaxonomic data and molecular properties, we propose that strain SD10 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is SD10 ( = KACC 13700  = DSM 22014). In addition, we propose to transfer Lai 2009 to the genus as nom. nov. (type strain P38  = CCTCC AB 208227  = LMG 24711  = MCCC 1A01086), and we present an emended description of the genus .
