Abstract

A facultatively anaerobic, Gram-staining-negative, pale red-pigmented, non-motile, rod-shaped, moderately halophilic bacterium, designated strain YIM J14, was isolated from a sediment sample from a salt mine in Yunnan, south-western China. Growth occurred at NaCl concentrations of between 2 % and 15 % (w/v) and optimally with 5–9 % NaCl. The optimum temperature and pH for growth of the strain were 28 °C and pH 7.5. The major cellular fatty acids were iso-C, anteiso-C and iso-Cω9/10-methyl-C. The polar lipid profile was composed predominantly of diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylcholine and one unknown phospholipid. Minor amounts of other lipids were also detectable. The genomic DNA G+C content was 47.2 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons indicated that strain YIM J14 was related to in the phylum . The level of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain YIM J14 and CL-CB462 was 96.9 %. A DNA–DNA hybridization experiment between strain YIM J14 and indicated levels of relatedness of 28 %. Chemotaxonomic data supported the placement of strain YIM J14 in the genus . DNA–DNA hybridization and biochemical and physiological characterization allowed strain YIM J14 to be differentiated from . It is therefore considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain YIM J14 ( = ACCC 10717 = DSM 21985).
