Abstract

A Gram-stain-positive, rod-shaped, non-sporulating, motile and moderately halophilic bacterium, designated strain H96B60, was isolated from a saline soil sample of the Qaidam basin, China. The strain was facultatively anaerobic. Major end products formed from glucose fermentation were acetate, ethanol and lactic acid. The cell-wall peptidoglycan contained -diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic diamino acid. The isoprenoid quinone component was menaquinone-6 (MK-6). The predominant cellular fatty acids were C, anteiso-C and anteiso-C. The genomic DNA G+C content of strain H96B60 was 36.2 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on comparative 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain H96B60 represented a novel phyletic lineage within the family and was related most closely to species (96.1–96.4 % similarity). Based on the phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data presented, strain H96B60 is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is H96B60 ( = DSM 22440  = CGMCC 1.7733).
