Abstract

A bacterial strain designated RKEM611 was isolated from the octocoral , collected off the coast of San Salvador, The Bahamas. The strain is Gram-stain-negative, an obligate aerobe, and pleomorphic. It requires NaCl for growth and exhibits optimal growth at 1–2 % (w/v) NaCl, 30–37 °C and pH 6.0–8.0. The predominant cellular fatty acids are Cω5 and C; the major respiratory quinone is menaquinone MK-6, and the DNA G+C content is 46.3 mol%. Based on phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene, in addition to phenotypic characteristics, RKEM611 represents a novel species and genus of a novel family within the order . The names fam. nov. and gen., nov., sp., nov. are proposed. Isolate RKEM611 ( = NCCB 100521 = LMG 28452) is the type strain.
