Abstract

A novel coryneform bacterium, designated strain GIMN1.010, was isolated from a sand sample collected in the desert in the west of China. Cells were Gram-stain-positive, non-spore-forming, catalase-positive, irregular rods. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis demonstrated that strain GIMN1.010 belonged to the genus and was related closely to ATCC 13032 (98.4 % similarity). However, the level of DNA–DNA relatedness between strain GIMN1.010 and ATCC 13032 was only 22.4±1.72 %, showing that strain GIMN1.010 represented a genomic species distinct from On the basis of phenotypic and phylogenetic data, strain GIMN1.010 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is GIMN1.010 ( = CCTCC AB 2010341  = NRRL B-59552).
