Abstract

A strictly aerobic, orange-pigmented and Gram-staining-negative bacterium, designated K17-16, was isolated from seawater of Gangjin Bay, Korea. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain K17-16 was a member of the genus in the family and showed 94.0–95.6 % sequence similarity with the type strains of recognized species of the genus . The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 34.6 mol% and the major respiratory lipoquinone was MK-6. The major polar lipids detected were phosphatidylethanolamine, three unidentified amino-group-containing lipids and an unidentified aminophospholipid. The predominant cellular fatty acids were iso-C (15.4 %), C (12.4 %), summed feature 3 (comprising iso-C 2-OH and/or Cω7; 10.6 %), Cω6 (9.8 %) and iso-C 3-OH (8.6 %). On the basis of phenotypic and genotypic data, strain K17-16 represents a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is K17-16 ( = KCTC 22729 = JCM 16152).
