Abstract

A novel aromatic-compound-degrading bacterium, strain T3-B9, was isolated from sediment of Taihu Lake, Jiangsu Province, south-east China. This bacterial isolate assimilated several aromatic compounds such as phenol, aniline, nitrobenzene, 4-chloronitrobenzene and phenanthrene. The taxonomy of strain T3-B9 was studied by polyphasic methods. The organism showed a range of phenotypic and chemotaxonomic properties consistent with those of the genus . The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of strain T3-B9 to members of the genus ranged from 91·6 to 97·5 %, and this isolate clustered phylogenetically with members of genus . The DNA–DNA relatedness values of strain T3-B9 to the most phylogenetically related species, DSM 12447, ATCC 700278 and ATCC 700280, were 31, 33 and 14 %, respectively. The combined genotypic and phenotypic data show that strain T3-B9 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is T3-B9 (=AS 1.3432=JCM 12465).
