Abstract

A Gram-staining-negative, chemoheterotrophic, yellow-pigmented, non-motile, flexirubin-negative, facultatively anaerobic bacterium, designated strain IMCC3317, was isolated from a coastal seawater sample from the Antarctic Penninsula. Optimal growth of strain IMCC3317 was observed at 20 °C, pH 8.0 and in the presence of 2–3 % NaCl. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain IMCC3317 belonged to the genus and was closely related to OT-1 (96.7 % sequence similarity) and IMCC1412 (96.1 % sequence similarity). The major fatty acids were 10-methyl C and/or iso-Cω9, iso-C 3-OH, iso-C and anteiso-C. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 35.1 mol%. The strain contained menaquinone-6 (MK-6) as the respiratory quinone. The polar lipids detected in the strain were phosphatidylethanolamine and unknown aminophospholipids, aminolipids and polar lipids. On the basis of phylogenetic distinction and differential phenotypic characteristics, it is suggested that strain IMCC3317 ( = KCTC 32292 = NBRC 109401) be assigned to the genus as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
