Abstract

A nonylphenol-degrading bacterial strain (YT) was isolated previously from a river sediment sample obtained in Ami-machi, Ibaraki, Japan, and identified as a species. In this study, the taxonomic relationship between strain YT, a recently described nonylphenol-degrading strain, , and , which is phylogenetically related, was examined. Their phenotypic characteristics were compared and levels of DNA–DNA relatedness between these strains were determined. Based on the results of physiological and biochemical tests and DNA–DNA hybridization, it is proposed that strain YT (=IAM 15006=JCM 11777=CIP 107839) represents a novel species of the genus , sp. nov.
