Abstract

A Gram-stain-positive thermophilic bacterium, designated strain Nis3, was isolated from compost. The strain grew at 23–57 °C (optimum, 50 °C); no growth was observed below 15 or above 60 °C. The pH range for growth was 5.9–8.8 (optimum, 7.0); no growth was observed below pH 5.4 or above pH 9.3. The DNA G+C content of strain Nis3 was 63.4 mol%. The dominant quinone type was ubiquinone Q-10. The major fatty acids were Cω7, Cω8 cyclo and C. The polar lipids comprised phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, hydroxyphosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylmonomethylethanolamine, an unknown glycolipid and a ninhydrin-positive phospholipid. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis assigned this bacterium to the family in the but it shared less than 95.2 % sequence similarity with other members of the family. The chemotaxonomic and phenotypic characteristics of strain Nis3 differed in some respects from those of members of the family . Therefore, strain Nis3 is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus in the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Nis3 ( = JCM 17863 = KCTC 23707).
