Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, non-motile, mesophilic, aerobic, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain 2-3, was isolated from surface seawater at Muroto city, Kochi prefecture, Japan. This strain grew well with starch. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the strain fell within the family and that the strain was related most closely to the genus (94.0 % sequence similarity to the type strain). The DNA G+C content was 52.4 mol%. The major fatty acids were Cω7, C and C. The major polar lipids were phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylcholine, one unidentified lipid, one unidentified aminolipid and one unidentified phospholipid. The major isoprenoid quinone was Q-10. Strain 2-3 did not grow at 4 or 35 °C, while the type strain of the type species of the genus grows at both temperatures. From the taxonomic data obtained in this study, it is proposed that strain 2-3 be placed into a novel genus and species named gen. nov., sp. nov. in the family . The type strain of is 2-3 ( = NBRC 110140 = LMG 28364).
