Abstract

A novel Gram-stain-negative, motile, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain WM35, was isolated from the intestinal tract of an abalone, , which was collected from the northern coast of Jeju in Korea. The cells of the isolate grew optimally at 30 °C, pH 7, and with 3 % (w/v) NaCl. Based on 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity comparisons, strain WM35 was grouped in the genus and was closely related to the type strains of (98.7 % similarity) and (97.8 % similarity). The major cellular fatty acids were summed feature 8 and C 2-OH. Ubiquinone Q-10 was the predominant respiratory quinone. The polar lipids of strain WM35 comprised phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylglycerol, diphosphatidylglycerol, an unidentified aminolipid and an unidentified lipid. The DNA G+C content of the isolate was 53.8 mol%. DNA–DNA hybridization values indicated <16 % genomic relatedness with members of the genus . The physiological, chemical and genotypic analyses indicated that strain WM35 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is WM35 ( = KACC 17212 = JCM 18870).
