Abstract

A Gram-staining-negative, strictly aerobic, rod-shaped, non-flagellated, non-spore-forming and gliding marine bacterium designated strain CC-AMZ-301 was isolated from coastal surface seawater near Taichung harbour, Taiwan. Strain CC-AMZ-301 predominantly synthesized zeaxanthin and thus formed yellow colonies on marine agar. The novel strain showed high pairwise 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to IMCC1412 (95.0 %), KCTC 8814P (94.4 %) and IMCC3317 (94.2 %), and formed a phylogenetic lineage tightly associated with species of the genus . The polar lipid profile of strain CC-AMZ-301 consisted of three unidentified lipids, three unidentified aminolipids and one unidentified phospholipid. The major fatty acids (>5 % of total) were iso-C 3-OH, iso-C, summed feature 3 (Cω7 and/or Cω6) and summed feature 9 (iso-Cω9 and/or 10-methyl C). The DNA G+C content was 36.4 mol%. Menaquinone 6 (MK-6) was the predominant respiratory quinone. The major polyamine was the triamine -homospermidine. Based on evidence from the present polyphasic study, strain CC-AMZ-301 is proposed to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is CC-AMZ-301 ( = JCM 18556 = BCRC 80464). An emended description of the genus is also proposed.
