Abstract

A moderately halophilic bacterium, strain SS20, capable of growing at salinities of 1–20 % (w/v) NaCl was isolated from a solar saltern of the Dangjin area in Korea and was characterized taxonomically. Strain SS20 was a Gram-negative bacterium comprising motile, short rods. Its major cellular fatty acids were C 7, C 8 cyclo and C. The DNA G+C content was 70 mol% and the predominant ubiquinone was Q-9. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain SS20 belonged to the genus . The levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to the type strains of species were in the range 93·0–97·5 %. The levels of DNA–DNA relatedness between strain SS20 and the type strains of phylogenetically closely related species were in the range 5·3–12·3 %. On the basis of physiological and molecular properties, strain SS20 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is SS20 (=KCTC 12127=JCM 12237).
