Abstract

A novel strain of the class was isolated from a seawater sample collected in the South China Sea using modified R2A agar plates. The strain was a Gram-stain-positive, non-motile, non-spore-forming, catalase-positive, irregular rod-shaped bacterium. The strain grew at 4–45 °C and pH 5.0–10.2, and tolerated 5 % (w/v) NaCl. Based on its 16S rRNA gene sequence, the organism was related phylogenetically to members of the genera (96.7 % similarity), (96.5 %), (95.0–95.8 %), (95.6 %) and (95.6 %). The cell-wall contained -ornithine as the major diagnostic diamino acid in the peptidoglycan. MK-8(H) was the predominant menaquinone. Major cellular fatty acids were iso-C 9, iso-C, iso-C and C. The G+C content of the DNA was 69.6 mol%. Phenotypic and phylogenetic data revealed that this strain represents a novel species in a new genus of the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain of is HB09001 (=CGMCC 1.10341 =DSM 23364).
