Abstract

A Gram-positive, halophilic bacterium, strain CAU 9536, was isolated from a tidal flat sediment in the Yellow Sea, Republic of Korea. Strain CAU 9536 grew optimally at 30 °C, at pH 9.0 and in the presence of 13.0 % (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain CAU 9536 belonged to the genus , and showed sequence similarity levels of 99.0 % to MCCC 1A05965 and 98.0 % to JC1078. DNA–DNA relatedness values between strain CAU 9536 and the above two type strains were below 45.0 %. The cell-wall peptidoglycan of strain CAU 9536 was based on -diaminopimelic acid, in contrast to those of and . The polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylinositol. Whole-cell hydrolysates contained mainly glucose and ribose. The major isoprenoid quinone was menaquinone MK-8 (H), and the predominant cellular fatty acid was iso-C. The DNA G+C content of strain CAU 9536 was 73.5 mol%. Based on phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genotypic data, strain CAU 9536 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CAU 9536 ( = KCTC 19774 = CCUG 59777).
