Abstract

A Gram-positive bacterium (strain CC-YMP-6) was isolated from soil samples collected from Yang-Ming Mountain, Taiwan. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain CC-YMP-6 clearly belonged to the genus and was most closely related to the type strains of (96.2 % similarity) and (96.3 %). The predominant isoprenoid quinone was menaquinone MK-7 and the polar lipid profile was composed of the major components diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine and one unidentified phospholipid plus moderate amounts of two unidentified aminophospholipids and a phospholipid. The polyamine pattern comprised spermidine as the single major component with spermine and putrescine present in minor amounts. The major fatty acids of strain CC-YMP-6 were iso-C and anteiso-C. The results of physiological and biochemical tests allowed the clear phenotypic differentiation of strain CC-YMP-6 from all recognized species of the genus . Strain CC-YMP-6 is therefore considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CC-YMP-6 (=DSM 22952=CCM 7714).
