Abstract

A novel yellow-pigmented, agarolytic bacterial strain, designated ZC1, was isolated from the surface of the marine red alga collected near Nan Ao Island, Guangdong province, China. The isolate was Gram-stain-negative, strictly aerobic and rod-shaped and displayed β-galactosidase, alkaline phosphatase, catalase and oxidase activities. The predominant cellular fatty acids were iso-C, summed feature 3 (comprising Cω7 and/or iso-C 2-OH) and iso-C 3-OH. The major menaquinone was menaquinone 6 (MK-6). The DNA GC content was 32.8 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed that strain ZC1 was closely related to members of the genus in the family , phylum . Based on phylogenetic and phenotypic evidence, strain ZC1 ( = CCTCC AB 2010229  = NBRC 107695) represents the type strain of a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
