Abstract

A novel bacterial strain, YC6899, was isolated from the root of growing on a tidal flat of Namhae Island, Korea. Cells were Gram-reaction-negative, rod-shaped, non-motile, slightly halophilic and heterotrophic. Strain YC6899 grew optimally at a salinity of 2–4 %, at 25–37 °C and at pH 6.5–8.0. Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences demonstrated that strain YC6899 was closely related to YIM D10 (96.1 % similarity) and RS.Sph.026 (95.9 %). The polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, unknown aminolipids, an unknown aminophospholipid, an unknown aminoglycolipid, unknown glycolipids and unknown lipids. The major fatty acids of strain YC6899 were C cyclo ω8 and Cω7. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 61.3 mol%. Strain YC6899 contained ubiquinone-10 (Q-10) as the major respiratory quinone system. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain YC6899 represents a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is YC6899 ( = KACC 14912 = NBRC 107845).
