Abstract

An irregular rod-shaped, non-gliding, yellow-pigmented bacterium was isolated from seawater from the western North Pacific Ocean near Japan. The strain, designated S1-66, was Gram-negative, obligately aerobic, heterotrophic and oxidase-positive. Growth occurred in the presence of 1–4 % NaCl, with optimum growth at 2 % NaCl. The strain grew at 15–30 °C, with optimum growth at 20–25 °C. The G+C content of genomic DNA was 48.1 mol% (HPLC). The predominant isoprenoid quinone was MK-6 and the major cellular fatty acids were iso-C (26.4 %), iso-C (20.3 %) and iso-C 3-OH (14.2 %). Phylogenetic trees generated by using 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain S1-66 belongs to the family and showed 94.2 % sequence similarity to the most closely related type strain, IMCC3101. On the basis of phenotypic and phylogenetic features, S1-66 is classified in a novel genus and species within the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is S1-66 ( = NBRC 107741  = KCTC 23434).
