Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, rod-shaped, non-flagellated bacterium, strain MJ9-5, was isolated from ice core of Muji Glacier. Colonies of strain MJ9-5 were pink, convex and round on R2A agar. Strain MJ9-5 grew between −1 to 25 °C with an optimum growth temperature of 10–15 °C. The strain tolerated 0–1.2 % (w/v) NaCl with an optimum of 1 %. The major cellular fatty acids of strain MJ9-5 were iso-C, summed feature 3 (Cω6 and/or C ω7). The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 38.5 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain MJ9-5 was related to members of the genus . On the basis of the phenotypic characteristics and phylogenetic analysis, a novel species of this genus, sp. nov., is proposed. The type strain is MJ9-5 ( = KCTC 42008 = JCM 19862).
