Abstract

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, motile and aerobic bacterium, designated strain HJ51, was isolated from a seawater sample from the East Sea, near South Korea. The isolate grew slowly at 4 °C, was able to grow at 40 °C, required NaCl and grew optimally at pH 6.5–7.0. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 41.8 mol%. The major fatty acids were summed feature 4 (C 7 and/or iso-C 2-OH), C and summed feature 7 (C 7, C 9 and/or C 12). Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain HJ51 belonged to the genus and had 91.7–98.9 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with type strains of species of the genus . Strain HJ51 had 7.2 % DNA–DNA relatedness with DSM 15203 and 12.9 % with DSM 14232. On the basis of the phenotypic, phylogenetic and genomic data, strain HJ51 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is HJ51 (=KCTC 22219=LMG 24469).
