Abstract

A halophilic, filamentous actinomycete strain, designated YIM 93246, was isolated from a salt lake in Xinjiang province, north-west China, and subjected to polyphasic taxonomic characterization. The isolate grew in the presence of 7–23 % (w/v) NaCl, but not in the absence of NaCl. Strain YIM 93246 had particular morphological properties, forming aerial mycelium that had long spore chains and pseudosporangium-like, rhiziform spore aggregates at maturity. -DAP was the cell-wall diamino acid and glucosamine, mannose, glucose, arabinose and galactose were the cell-wall sugars. The major fatty acids were iso-C, anteiso-C and anteiso-C. MK-9 (H) was the predominant menaquinone and the genomic DNA G+C content was 70.5 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain YIM 93246 clustered with the genus . The sequence similarities between strain YIM 93246 and , and were 96.9, 96.9 and 96.6 %, respectively. Based on morphological, physiological and chemotaxonomic differences, and phylogenetic analysis, a novel genus and species, gen. nov., sp. nov., is proposed. The type strain of the species is YIM 93246 (=DSM 45211=KCTC 19409). Additionally, phylogenetic analysis placed the genus together with strain YIM 93246 within the order as an independent lineage, clearly distinguished from other described suborders of the class . Hence, based on phylogenetic characteristics, the genus together with the newly proposed genus are proposed to be classified as fam. nov. and subord. nov.
