Abstract

A Gram-staining-negative, rod-shaped and pink bacterium was isolated from the soil of a forest in the Taklamakan desert, Xinjiang, China. It was designated strain H9X. A 16S rRNA gene sequence homology search indicated that the isolate was most closely related to the family . The 16S rRNA gene of strain H9X displayed 94.2–96.3 % sequence identities to those of type strains of other species of the genus . It only possessed menaquinone-7. The major cellular fatty acids of the novel isolate were iso-C, Cω5 summed feature 3 (containing Cω6 and/or Cω7) and summed feature 4 (comprising anteiso-C B and/or iso-C I). The major polar lipids were phosphatidylethanolamine, one unknown aminophospholipid, one unknown glycophospholipid and several unknown phospholipids. The DNA G+C content of this bacterium was 55.2 mol%. Based on the phenotypic and genotypic data presented, it can be concluded that this isolate represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is H9X ( = CCTCC AB 2013047 = KCTC 32396).
