Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, rod-like, motile by peritrichous flagella and moderately halophilic bacterium, designated strain B6, was isolated a deep-sea sediment collected from the South Atlantic Ocean. The isolate grew with 0.5–15 % (w/v) NaCl, at 4–37 °C and pH 5.0–8.5 and showed a high tolerance to zinc, manganese, cobalt and copper ions. The major fatty acids were C, C cyclo ω8, C 3-OH and C. The predominant ubiquinone was Q-9. The genomic DNA G+C content was 61.1 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene comparisons indicated that strain B6 belonged to the genus , and the closest relative was TRM 0175 (96.1 %). Based upon the phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genetic data, strain B6 represents a novel species from the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is B6 ( = CGMCC 1.12450 = JCM 18472).
