Abstract

A Gram-positive actinobacterium, strain IV-75, was isolated by using R2A agar from the ultrapure water system of a power plant in Hungary. The strain exhibited a rod–coccus cell cycle, and was strictly aerobic, non-motile, catalase-positive and oxidase-negative. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that strain IV-75 belonged to the suborder and clustered with members of the family . Its closest phylogenetic neighbour was CCUG 47306 (94.3 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). The peptidoglycan of strain IV-75 contained -diaminopimelic acid and MK-10(H) was the major menaquinone. The polar lipid pattern contained phosphatidylglycerol, two unidentified phospholipids, one glycolipid and several other lipid components. The major fatty acids were anteiso-C, Cω9 and C. Based on the moderate levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to all members of the family and the unique combination of chemotaxonomic characteristics, strain IV-75 is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is IV-75 ( = DSM 21674 = NCAIM B 02333).
