Abstract

A novel strain, yH16, was isolated on nutrient agar from soil samples collected at KyungHee University, Suwon City, Republic of Korea. Cells of strain yH16 were short rods, Gram-negative-staining, motile and non-spore-forming, with a polar flagellum. Biochemical and molecular characterization revealed that this strain was most similar to BP-5. Further 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies revealed that the new strain clustered with BP-5 (95.9 % similarity), 5YN8-15 (95.2 % similarity), E4FC31-5 (94.6 % similarity) and CC-SE-YA-1 (93.9 % similarity). The isolate was able to grow at 25–40 °C, 0.3–2 % NaCl and pH 5.5–7. The DNA G+C content was 65.9±1.0 mol%. The predominant fatty acids were summed feature 3 (Cω7 and/or iso-C 2-OH) and C. Ubiquinone 8 was the major respiratory quinone. It was evident from the data obtained that the strain should be classified as a novel species of the genus . The name proposed for this taxon is sp. nov., and the type strain is yH16 ( = KCCM 90100 = JCM 17850).
