Abstract

sp, nov. includes three moderately halophilic, exopolysaccharide-producing strains isolated from saline soils in Jaén (south-eastern Spain). These strains can grow anaerobically using either nitrate or nitrite as terminal electron acceptor and hydrolyse both tyrosine and phenylalanine. Their G+C content varies between 72·6 and 74·3 mol%. The affiliation of the isolates with the genus was confirmed by 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison. DNA–DNA hybridization shows 70·4–82·7 % relatedness among the three strains. Nevertheless, their relatedness is less than 43 % compared to related reference strains. The proposed type strain for is strain Al12 (=CECT 5797=DSM 15911). It grows best at 8 % (w/v) sea salts and requires the presence of Na. Its major fatty acids are 18 : 1 7, 16 : 0, 16 : 1 7, and 15 : 0 iso 2-OH. The predominant respiratory lipoquinone found in strain Al12 is ubiquinone with nine isoprene units (Q-9).
