Abstract

An actinobacterial strain was isolated from marine sediment taken from the Troitsa Bay of the Gulf of Peter the Great, East Siberian Sea, and subjected to a taxonomic investigation. The isolate, designated KMM 3905, was Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile and coccoid. The strain tolerated up to 15 % NaCl in growth media, although its presence was not essential for growth. Chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic properties of the strain were consistent with its classification in the genus . The strain formed an independent phylogenetic line in the 16S rRNA gene tree encompassed by members of . Comparison of phenotypic characteristics also supported its assignment to a novel species within . The name sp. nov. (type strain KMM 3905=KCTC 9943) is proposed for this halotolerant actinobacterium from the marine environment.
