Abstract

A novel strain designated MRP-15, belonging to the class (phylum ), was isolated from the rhizoplane of in South Korea and was characterized taxonomically using a polyphasic approach. The strain was found to comprise Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, non-motile, non-spore-forming rods. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that the strain belonged to the genus but was clearly separated from established species of the genus . 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities between strain MRP-15 and type strains of established species of the genus ranged from 90.3 to 97.8 %. Phenotypic and chemotaxonomic data (major menaquinone, MK-7; major fatty acids, iso-C and Cω5) supported the affiliation of strain MRP-15 with the genus . Therefore strain MRP-15 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is MRP-15 ( = KACC 17184 = NCAIMB 02530).
