Abstract

Strain 104 was isolated from a traditional salt-fermented seafood in Korea. It was a Gram-positive, non-motile, coccus-shaped bacterium. It formed lemon–yellow, opaque colonies that were circular with entire margins. Optimal growth occurred at 30–37 °C, pH 7–8 and in the presence of 0–2 % (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences from strain 104 and reference species of the genus indicated that strain 104 formed an independent line. The G+C content of the chromosomal DNA was 60.6 mol%. MK-7 was the major menaquinone and the predominant fatty acids were anteiso-C (76.7 %), anteiso-C (10.9 %) and iso-C (4.5 %). Strain 104 was most closely related to TA68 (98.9 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). The DNA–DNA hybridization value between strain 104 and TA68 was 14.1±3.4 %. On the basis of this polyphasic taxonomic analysis, strain 104 appears to represent a novel species in the genus . The name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 104 (=KACC 21128=JCM 16361).
