Abstract

A Gram-negative bacterium, designated CKTN2, was isolated from compost. Cells of strain CKTN2 were strictly aerobic rods. The isolate grew at 20–50 °C (optimum 40–45 °C), but not below 15 °C or above 52 °C, and at pH 5.9–8.8 (optimum pH 7.0), but not below pH 5.4 or above pH 9.3. The DNA G+C content was 40.3 mol%. The predominant menaquinone was MK-7. The major fatty acids were iso-C (45.2 %), iso-C 3-OH (11.1 %) and C (14.5 %). Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain CKTN2 revealed that it is a member of the genus and is most closely related to DSM 22362 (93.2 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). Strain CKTN2 could be distinguished from its closest phylogenetic relatives by different phenotypic characteristics. According to the phenotypic and genotypic characteristics, strain CKTN2 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CKTN2 ( = JCM 17858  = KCTC 23708).
