Abstract

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacterium (designated strain Kw05) was isolated from granules used in the wastewater treatment plant of a beer-brewing factory in Kwang-Ju, Republic of Korea. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, strain Kw05 was shown to belong to the family , and was most closely related to (96·6 %), (96·3 %), (96·1 %) and (96·1 %). The G+C content of the genomic DNA of strain Kw05 was 36·2 mol%, within the range of 32–37 mol% for the genus . Chemotaxonomic data (major menaquinone MK-6; major fatty acids iso-C, iso-C 3-OH, iso-C 3-OH and iso-C 9) supported the classification of strain Kw05 within the genus . Kw05 therefore represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Kw05 (=KCTC 12201=IAM 15099).
