Abstract

A Gram-positive, non-motile, non-spore-forming coccus (strain JS) was isolated from kimchi (a traditional Korean food) and investigated using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain JS and its closest relative, IAM 1676, was 98·1 %. The level of DNA–DNA relatedness between the two strains was 9·7 %. Strain JS had a DNA G+C content of 38·3 % and a cellular fatty acid profile containing 16 : 0, 18 : 1 and cyclo fatty acids. Phylogenetic data and genomic and phenotypic features demonstrated that strain JS represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is JS (=KCTC 3924=DSM 16501=LMG 22864).
