Abstract

A Gram-stain-positive, aerobic, non-motile, psychrophilic bacterium, designated strain Cr6-08, was isolated from alpine glacier cryoconite. Growth of strain Cr6-08 occurred at 1–25 °C. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain Cr6-08 is most closely related to members of the genus . Strain Cr6-08 possessed chemotaxonomic properties consistent with those of the genus , such as peptidoglycan type A3α (-Lys–-Ala), MK-9(H) as major menaquinone and anteiso- and iso-branched compounds (anteiso-C and iso-C) as major cellular fatty acids. The polar lipid profile contained diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylinositol, one unknown glycolipid and three unknown polar lipids. The genomic DNA G+C content of strain Cr6-08 was 57.3 mol%. On the basis of phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics, phylogenetic analysis and DNA–DNA relatedness data, strain Cr6-08 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Cr6-08 ( = DSM 23324  = LMG 26052  = CGMCC 1.10698).
