Abstract

A Gram-negative, non-motile bacterial strain that formed straight rods and straw yellow colonies, designated FCS-5, was isolated from a marine sediment from the Arabian Sea. The isolate exhibited most of the phenotypic properties expected for a member of the genus . The major fatty acids were iso-C, iso-C 3-OH, Cω9 and summed feature 3 (comprising iso-C 2-OH and/or Cω7). The only isoprenoid quinone was MK-6. The only polyamine was homospermidine and the major polar lipid was phosphatidylethanolamine. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 32.4 mol%. According to 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain FCS-5 belonged to the genus and exhibited 99.3 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with F44-8 and 90.9–94.6 % sequence similarity with other members of the genus . The results of physiological and biochemical tests allowed the discrimination of the isolate from its phylogenetic relatives. Strain FCS-5 is a representative of a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is FCS-5 ( = MTCC 10967 = JCM 17928). An emended description of is also proposed.
