Abstract

Strain LBB3 isolated from Bogoria soda lake in Kenya is an alkaliphilic, Gram-positive, strictly aerobic, non-motile, spore-forming bacterium. It was identified as a member of the genus on the basis of phenotypic and phylogenetic analyses. The organism grows optimally at 37 °C and pH 10. The G+C content of the genomic DNA is 37·5 mol%. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed 95 and 96 % sequence similarity with (DSM 8715) and (DSM 485), respectively. Furthermore, DNA–DNA hybridization against these two species showed 39·0 and 55·5 % similarity, respectively. Based on our observations, strain LBB3 is proposed to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is LBB3 (=ATCC BAA-922=LMG 22234).
