Abstract

A taxonomic study was carried out on strain YN3, which was isolated from a seaweed sample taken from the coast of Weihai, China. The bacterium was Gram-stain-negative, rod-shaped, and could grow at pH 5.0–10.0 and 4–32 °C in the presence of 0–9.0 % (w/v) NaCl. Strain YN3 was positive for the hydrolysis of polysaccharides, such as agar, starch and xylan. The predominant respiratory quinone was ubiquinone-8. The major fatty acids were Cω7 and/or iso-C 2-OH, C and Cω7. The main polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylethanolamine, and two unidentified glycolipids. The genomic DNA G+C content was 49.4 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain YN3 should be assigned to the genus . ‘’ KCTC 23325 and QM42 had the closest phylogenetic relationship to strain YN3, and showed 97.9 % and 95.8 % sequence similarities, respectively. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genotypic data and DNA–DNA hybridization studies, we propose that strain YN3 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is YN3 ( = KCTC 32438 = JCM 19198). An emended description of the genus is also presented.
