Abstract

A novel actinomycete strain, designated TRM F103, was isolated from a hypersaline habitat of the Tarim basin in Xinjiang province, north-west China. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the isolate belonged to the genus and was most closely related to YIM 93223 (99.3 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). However, DNA–DNA relatedness between these two strains, based on triplicate experiments, was only 31.6 %. The isolate contained -diaminopimelic acid and ribose, glucose and galactose as the major whole-cell sugars. The predominant menaquinone was MK-8(H). The major fatty acids were iso-C and C. The polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylmethylethanolamine, phosphatidylethanolamine and glucosamine-containing phospholipids. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 66.4 mol%. The phenotypic data clearly distinguished the isolate from its closest relatives. The combined phylogenetic, chemotaxonomic and phenotypic data indicate that the isolate represents a novel species of the genus . The proposed name is sp. nov., with TRM F103 ( = JCM 15899 = CCTCC AB 208326) as the type strain.
