Abstract

A Gram-reaction-negative, strictly aerobic, non-motile bacterium, designated strain G4, was isolated from a sandy beach of Taean in South Korea. Cells were ovoid rods and were catalase- and oxidase-positive. Growth of strain G4 was determined at 15–35 °C (optimum 25–30 °C) and pH 6–8 (optimum pH 6.5–7.5). Strain G4 contained Q-10 as the predominant isoprenoid quinone and Cω7 (59.0 %), C 7 11-methyl (11.3 %) and C 3-OH (9.8 %) as the major fatty acids. The major cellular polar lipids were identified as phosphatidylglycerol, diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylcholine, an unidentified amino lipid, an unidentified phospholipid and an unidentified lipid. The DNA G+C content was 62.4 mol%. Phylogenetic and comparative analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain G4 fell within the family of and was most closely related to members of the genera , and with 95.5–96.4 % sequence similarities. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and molecular properties, strain G4 represents a novel species of a novel genus within the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is G4 ( = KACC 13706  = DSM 22007).
