Abstract

An orange, rod-shaped, Gram-reaction-negative, aerobic and gliding bacterial strain devoid of flagella, designated strain KYW614, was isolated from seawater collected from Gwangyang Bay, Republic of Korea. Zeaxanthin was the major carotenoid pigment produced and flexirubin-type pigments were not produced. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain KYW614 belonged to the family and it was most closely related to TD-ZX30 (96.5 %, sequence similarity). The predominant cellular fatty acids of strain KYW614 were iso-C G (10.5 %), summed feature 3 (Cω7/Cω6; 10.0 %), iso-C (9.5 %), C (7.5 %) and iso-C 3-OH (7.4 %). MK-6 was the only isoprenoid quinone and the DNA GC content was 32.6 mol%. Data from a polyphasic taxonomic study suggested that the isolate represents a novel species in the genus , for which the name Mesoflavibacter sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is KYW614 ( = KCTC 32269 = JCM 19524).
