Abstract

A novel Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, non-motile, yellow-pigmented and rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain WB5, was isolated from the intestinal tract of an abalone, , collected from the northern coast of Jeju in Korea. The isolate grew optimally at 30 °C, at pH 7 and in the presence of 0.5 % (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain WB5 was clustered in the genus and shared the highest sequence similarity with (98.2 % similarity). The predominant fatty acids were iso-C and iso-C 3-OH. Menaquinone-6 was the major respiratory quinone. The genomic DNA G+C content was 29.6 mol%. The DNA–DNA hybridization values indicated <22 % genomic relatedness with other members of the genus . The results of physiological, biochemical, chemotaxonomic and genotypic analyses showed that strain WB5 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is WB5 ( = KACC 17210 = JCM 18869).
