Abstract

A Gram-positive, rod-shaped, xylanolytic, spore-forming bacterium, strain GTH-3, was isolated from a tidal flat adjacent to Ganghwa Island, Republic of Korea, and was characterized to determine its taxonomic position. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, strain GTH-3 was shown to belong to the family , being most closely related to the type strains of (94.9 %), (94.8 %), (94.4 %), (94.2 %), (94.1 %) and (94.0 %). The G+C content of the genomic DNA of strain GTH-3 was 45.9±0.2 mol% (mean±). The major menaquinone was MK-7. The major fatty acids were anteiso-C and iso-C. The major polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylethanolamine. Phenotypic and chemotaxonomic data supported the affiliation of strain GTH-3 to the genus . The results of physiological and biochemical tests allowed strain GTH-3 to be distinguished genotypically and phenotypically from recognized species of the genus . Strain GTH-3 is therefore considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is GTH-3 ( = DSM 23491  = LMG 25635).
