Abstract

A Gram-reaction-positive, rod-shaped, spore-forming bacterium, designated Gsoil 1105, was isolated from soil of a ginseng field in Pocheon Province in South Korea and characterized in order to determine its taxonomic position. Comparative analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that the isolate belongs to the order , showing the highest level of sequence similarity with respect to Eur1 9.5 (94.6 %). The phylogenetic distances from other described species with validly published names within the order were greater than 9.0 %. Strain Gsoil 1105 had a genomic DNA G+C content of 55.6 mol% and menaquinone 7 (MK-7) as the major respiratory quinone. The major fatty acids were iso-C and anteiso-C. On the basis of its phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness, strain Gsoil 1105 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Gsoil 1105 ( = KCTC 13942  = DSM 18389).
