Abstract

An oestradiol-degrading bacterium isolated at a sewage treatment plant in Tokyo was studied phenotypically, genotypically and phylogenetically. Analysis of its 16S rDNA sequence, DNA base composition, whole-cell fatty acid profile and isoprenoid quinone composition, as well as the presence of sphingoglycolipid, revealed that the isolate is a member of the genus . However, the sequence similarity of its 16S rDNA to those of known species was no higher than 97 %, implying that the isolate is distinctive. The results of DNA–DNA hybridization experiments and physiological characterization also indicated that the isolate represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed; strain ARI-1 (=JCM 11434 =ATCC BAA-531 =IFO 16725) is the type strain.
