Abstract

A novel Gram-staining-negative, motile, non-pigmented, facultatively anaerobic, spirillum-shaped, halophilic and alkaliphilic bacterium, designated strain GCWy1, was isolated from water of the coastal–marine wetland Gomishan in Iran. The strain was able to grow at NaCl concentrations of 1–10 % (w/v) and optimal growth was achieved at 3 % (w/v). The optimum pH and temperature for growth were pH 8.5 and 30 °C, while the strain was able to grow at pH 7.5–10 and 4–40 °C. Phylogenetic analysis based on the comparison of the 16S rRNA gene sequence placed the isolate within the class as a separate deep branch, with 92.1 % or lower sequence similarity to representatives of the genera and and less than 91.0 % sequence similarity with other remotely related genera. The major cellular fatty acids of the isolate were Cω7, C and C, and the major components of its polar lipid profile were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylethanolamine. The cells of strain GCWy1 contained the isoprenoid quinones Q-9 and Q-8 (81 % and 2 %, respectively). The G+C content of the genomic DNA of this strain was 52.3 mol%. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis in combination with chemotaxonomic and phenotypic data, strain GCWy1 represents a novel species in a new genus in the family ‘’, order , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of the type species is GCWy1 ( = IBRC-M 10765 = CECT 8342).
