Abstract

A bacterial strain named IGB-41 was isolated from a soil sample from an ant hill near Stuttgart, Germany. The strain was Gram-negative, rod-shaped, motile and facultatively anaerobic. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA grouped the strain IGB-41 within the class into the family together with NBRC 103189, NBRC 103188 and KM-45 as the closest relatives with sequence similarities of 96.7, 96.6 and 96.1 %, respectively. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was determined to be 61.5 mol% and quinone analysis revealed Q-8 as the only detectable quinone. Major cellular fatty acids were identified as C, summed feature 3 (iso-C 2-OH and/or Cω7) and Cω7 . Strain IGB-41 was unique in harbouring phosphoaminolipids, aminolipids and glycoaminolipids when compared with NBRC 103189 in polar lipid analysis. On the basis of the physiological, phenotypic and genotypic characteristics of strain IGB-41, we suggest that the novel strain should be assigned to a new genus and novel species The type species of the genus is and the type strain is IGB-41 ( = DSM 23761 = CIP 110167).
