Abstract

A novel marine bacterium, strain KMM 6050, was isolated from the sea urchin , which inhabits the Sea of Japan. The strain studied was strictly aerobic, heterotrophic, yellow–orange-pigmented, motile by gliding, Gram-negative and oxidase-, catalase-, -galactosidase- and alkaline phosphatase-positive. The results of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain KMM 6050 occupies a distinct lineage within the family and is most closely related to the species and (sequence similarity of 92·5–92·6 %). The DNA G+C content of KMM 6050 was 39·6 mol%. The major respiratory quinone was MK-6. The predominant fatty acids were i15 : 0, a15 : 0, 15 : 0, i16 : 1, i16 : 0, i16 : 0 3-OH and i17 : 0 3-OH. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic, genotypic and phylogenetic characteristics, the novel bacterium has been assigned to the genus gen. nov., as sp. nov. The type strain is KMM 6050 (=KCTC 12278=NBRC 100593=LMG 22585).
