Abstract

A novel Gram-stain-positive bacterium, designated strain YIM M11385, was isolated from a marine sediment sample collected from the South Bay, Little Andaman Island, India with a salinity of 35 p.p.m., pH 8.5. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain YIM M11385 belongs to the genus , supported by a bootstrap value of 100 %. The taxonomic position of this organism was further established by using a polyphasic approach. Strain YIM M11385 grew optimally at 28 °C, pH 7.0 and in the presence of 0–5 % (w/v) NaCl. The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain YIM M11385 and SCSIO 10219 was 98.3 %. Strain YIM M11385 exhibited a quinone system with only MK-7, the polar lipid profile included diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylethanolamine as major components, and the major fatty acids were anteiso-C, iso-C, anteiso-C and iso-C. The level of DNA–DNA relatedness between strain YIM M11385 and SCSIO 10219 was 59.36 %. On the basis of genotypic and phenotypic data, it is apparent that strain YIM M11385 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is YIM M11385 ( = CCTCC AB 2012052 = DSM 45789). In addition, we propose that the description of the genus should be further emended based on the results of the present study.
