Abstract

A Gram-staining-positive, aerobic, non-motile, irregular coccus, designated strain YIM M13146, was isolated from a sediment sample collected from the South China Sea at a depth of 2439 m, and its taxonomic position was determined by a polyphasic approach. Optimal growth of the strain was observed at 30 °C (range 5–40 °C), pH 7.0 (pH 6.0–9.0) and 0–1 % NaCl (0–6 %, w/v) on/in tryptic soy agar/broth. Strain YIM M13146 had the major cellular fatty acid anteiso-C, the predominant respiratory menaquinone MK-9(H), peptidoglycan type A3γ (-DAP–Gly) containing alanine, glycine, glutamic acid and -diaminopimelic acid (-DAP) and the polar lipids phosphatidylcholine, diphosphatidylglycerol, one unknown phospholipid and several glycolipids. The G+C content of the DNA was 67.2 mol%. Phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics together with 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses showed that strain YIM M13146 was distinct from its close phylogenetic relatives in the genera and of the family . Hence, a new genus and species, gen. nov., sp. nov., is proposed. The type strain of is YIM M13146 ( = DSM 25892 = CCTCC AB 2012055).
