Abstract

A Gram-negative-staining, rod-shaped, non-motile and pink bacterial strain was isolated from the soil of a forest located in Xinjiang, China. The strain, designated strain HYL7-15, was subjected to a taxonomic analysis using a polyphasic approach. 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses indicated that the isolate belonged to the phylum and was related to the genus , with sequence similarities ranging from 93.1 to 95.0 % with other species of the genus . Strain HYL7-15 contained MK-7 as the predominant menaquinone and its DNA G+C content was 44.9 mol%. The major cellular fatty acids of the novel strain were iso-C (16.49 %), iso-C 3-OH (10.96 %) and summed feature 4 (comprising anteiso-C B and/or iso-C I, 18.46 %). The major polar lipids were phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and phosphatidylglycerol (PG); diphosphatidylglycerol (DPG), three unknown aminophospholipids (APLs) and two unknown phospholipids (PLs) were also detected. On the basis of the evidence presented, it is concluded that strain HYL7-15 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is HYL7-15 ( = CCTCC AB 206239 = NRRL B-59488).
