Abstract

A Gram-positive, aerobic, rod- or coccus-shaped, non-motile bacterium, designated DMZ1, was isolated from soil of the Demilitarized Zone, South Korea. Strain DMZ1 grew optimally at 30 °C, at pH 7–8 and with 1 % (w/v) NaCl. The isolate showed high 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with 5317S-21 (98.2 %). The cell-wall sugars were glucose and ribose. The peptidoglycan amino acids were -diaminopimelic acid, glutamic acid and glycine. The major cellular fatty acids were iso-C, iso-C and iso-C. The polar lipids were phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol, diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol and five unknown phospholipids. The isolate did not contain mycolic acids. The DNA G+C content was 72.6 mol%. The isolate showed <28 % DNA–DNA relatedness with members of the genus . Phylogenetic, phenotypic and genotypic analysis indicated that strain DMZ1 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is DMZ1 ( = KACC 15114  = JCM 17313).
