Abstract

During the course of screening bacterial isolates as sources of as-yet unknown bioactive compounds with pharmaceutical applications, a chemo-organotrophic, Gram-negative bacterium was isolated from a soil sample taken from the Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park, Granada, Spain. Strain F-278,770 was oxidase- and catalase-positive, aerobic, with a respiratory type of metabolism with oxygen as the terminal electron acceptor, non-spore-forming and motile by one polar flagellum, although some cells had two polar flagella. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA, , and genes revealed that strain F-278,770 belongs to the subgroup ( lineage), with , , and as its closest relatives. Chemotaxonomic traits such as polar lipid and fatty acid compositions and G+C content of genomic DNA corroborated the placement of strain F-278,770 in the genus . DNA–DNA hybridization assays and phenotypic traits confirmed that this strain represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is F-278,770 ( = DSM 28040 = LMG 27940).
