Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, non-motile, non-spore-forming bacterial strain, YCS-5, was isolated from seawater off the southern coast of Korea. Strain YCS-5 grew optimally at 30 °C and in the presence of 2 % (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain YCS-5 fell within the clade comprising species. Strain YCS-5 exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of 96.6, 95.7 and 97.9 % to the type strains of , and , respectively, and less than 89.8 % to strains of other species used in the phylogenetic analysis. Strain YCS-5 contained Q-8 as the predominant ubiquinone and iso-C, iso-C, iso-C 3-OH and iso-Cω9 as the major fatty acids. The polar lipid profile of strain YCS-5 was similar to that of . SW-125, with phosphatidylglycerol and an unidentified aminolipid as major polar lipids. The DNA G+C content was 47 mol%. The mean DNA–DNA relatedness value between strain YCS-5 and . JCM 16211 was 12 %. Differential phenotypic properties and the phylogenetic and genetic distinctiveness of strain YCS-5 demonstrated that this strain is distinguishable from other species. On the basis of the data presented, strain YCS-5 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is YCS-5 ( = KCTC 23420 = CCUG 60526).
