Abstract

The taxonomic position of three novel sea-water isolates was determined. The strains studied were strictly aerobic, heterotrophic, pigmented, motile by gliding, Gram-negative and oxidase-, catalase-, -galactosidase- and alkaline phosphatase-positive. 16S rRNA gene sequence phylogenetic analysis indicated that the strains KMM 6020, KMM 6021 and KMM 6028 occupied a distinct lineage within the family . The major respiratory quinone was MK-6. The predominant fatty acids were i15 : 0, i15 : 1, i15 : 0 3-OH, i17 : 19 and i17 : 0 3-OH. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic, genotypic and phylogenetic characteristics, the novel bacteria were assigned to the genus gen. nov., as gen. nov., sp. nov. The type strain is KMM 6020 (=KCTC 12285=LMG 22569). From the results of the 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and phenotypic features, the species [] Lewin 1969 is proposed to be reclassified in the new genus as gen. nov., comb. nov., with type strain CIP 104806 (=ATCC 23177=NCIMB 1399=LMG 1343).
