Abstract

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-motile and pink bacterial strain, designated strain GCM0142, was isolated from the confined seawater in the Saemangeum Tide Embankment of South Korea, and characterized using a polyphasic approach. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis of strain GCM0142 indicated that the isolate belonged to the phylum and exhibited similarity levels of 94.0–96.4 % to the type strains of recognized species. Strain GCM0142 was oxidase- and catalase-positive. The major cellular fatty acids of the novel strain were summed feature 4 (comprising iso-CI and/or anteiso-CB, 36.8 %), iso-C (22.3 %) and summed feature 3 (comprising Cω7 and/or Cω6, 6.2 %). The DNA G+C content of strain GCM0142 was 48.9 mol% and the major quinone was MK-7. The polar lipid profile consisted of phosphatidylethanolamine, two unknown aminolipids (AL1–2), an unknown aminophospholipid, five unknown lipids (L1–5) and an unknown glycolipid. On the basis of the evidence presented, strain GCM0142 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is GCM0142 ( = KACC 16448 = JCM 17926).
