Abstract

A strain of a species of the genus , designated AJ 3170, was isolated during the 1980s from putrefied bananas. Since then, there have been no further updates on the description of the strain or its phylogenetic classification. However, phylogenetic analysis of this strain using 16S rRNA and DNA–DNA hybridization has confirmed that it is a member of the genus and that strain AJ 3170 clusters with DSM 44702, Y-11 and S6-4 in one subgroup. Furthermore, a combination of enzymatic, chemical, and morphological characterization techniques was applied in order to describe strain AJ 3170 further. The strain grew well at pH values of 6–10 and at temperatures of 30–41 °C. The major fatty acids were C (42.15 %), Cω9 (41.6 %) and C 10-methyl (TBSA) (8.56 %). The whole-cell sugars were determined to comprise galactose, arabinose and ribose. On the basis of this phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic characterization, it is proposed that strain AJ 3170 represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is AJ 3170 ( = DSM 45795 = ATCC 21341).
